After already getting their fill of Operation Metro during the Battlefield 3 open beta gamers might be looking towards the other eight maps that will ship with the highly anticipated FPS.
While DICE hasn’t released a complete detailed look at the Battlefield 3 multiplayer maps, they have given gamers a closer view of four (three new and one old) of them.
Each has their own appeal, as well as showcasing DICE’s proclivity for designing multi-layered maps, but gamers will certainly find their favorites without even having set a foot on them. Let’s kick things off with Operation Firestorm.
Operation Firestorm is Battlefield 3’s “largest and most vehicle-friendly map” and seems to be very much inspired by the film Jarhead. It’s so large in fact that it could hold some of Bad Company 2’s larger maps within its borders.
Tehran Highway is one of Battlefield 3’s multiplayer maps that is set at night. It’s biggest appeal, besides moving from rural terrain to a city’s outskirts, is showcasing the Frostbite 2.0 engine at its finest.
Damavand Peak is going to be Battlefield 3’s most talked about multiplayer map because it allows players to unleash their inner base jumper. That’s right, you read correctly, attacking teams in matches of Rush will start first on a precipice high above a mining facility, a facility that can only be raided by parachuting soldiers. Sounds awesome.
And then there is Operation Metro — you know it, you’ve played it to death — and in the final game, with all of the updates thrown in, we hope the experience will be marginally different. There’s a reason this map was chosen for the beta, and preview events, because it is essentially three maps in one.
While Damavand Peak has certainly piqued our attention the most that doesn’t mean the other multiplayer maps, including Operation Metro, don’t possess their own appealing qualities. Stick tuned to Game Rant for a closer look at the other Battlefield 3 multiplayer maps courtesy of DICE.
Which of the four multiplayer maps is your favorite? Are there any other multiplayer maps you have heard brief details about that you are excited about checking out?
Battlefield 3 releases October 25, 2011 for the PC, Xbox 360, and PS3.
