Battlefield V Drops its Chaotic New “Operation Underground” Map Today
Battlefield V adds a new close-quarters multiplayer map today. Operation Underground is a reimagining of the classic Operation Metro, which first appeared in Battlefield 3. As the name implies, the map takes place in a German subway station and the war-torn streets above – you’re going to have to think tactically, or you’re going to get ambushed! Check out a trailer for Operation Underground, below.
Here’s a more detailed rundown on the map:
Operation Underground takes place in a war-ridden German city environment where you’ll battle for control both above and below ground. The map can be played in the Conquest, Squad Conquest, Breakthrough, and Team Deathmatch game modes. For limited time periods, Rush will be supported too. Regardless of how you tackle it, you’ll deploy on a highly dynamic map. Prepare to get tactical and read the rhythm of the battle, working with your squad as you push forward, hold your ground, or fall back.
Operation Underground at a Glance
- Infantry Only
- Fast and Chaotic
Operation Underground supports a wide variety of playstyles involving up-close infantry battles. Supporters of light combat weapons, teamwork, spatial awareness, and ever-changing battle conditions will feel right at home, as will fans of the original Operation Métro from Battlefield 3 and Battlefield 4 or Marita in Battlefield V.
Key Areas and Conquest Capture Points
- Capture Point A: Crossroads - This point is all about city streets and courtyards with plenty of enterable buildings with several floors. The area was an important hub for the city’s military activity, which is why it was bombed by the Allies before the attack.
- Capture Point B: Train Station - The train station served as both a shelter and a crucial part of the supply line in and out of the city. German soldiers are still lingering and must be defeated before the Allies can claim the city is free. The area will be familiar to fans of Operation Metro-style gameplay – but with more flanking routes! Prepare for occasional floods, opening and closing access to handy shortcuts.
- Capture Point C: Plaza - This is the command center of the city’s German operation. The plaza is a more open area with a big accessible town hall in the center. Converted to a military command center that pulls the strings of the German defense of the city, the town hall has limited access to higher floors, but many rooms on the first floor.
The Operation Underground map is the last of the big content updates DICE promised earlier this summer. Last week Battlefield V also received a big update, featuring a lot of gameplay and UI tweaks. Battlefield V Chapter V, which takes the action to the Pacific Theater, is set to launch later this year.
Battlefield V is available now on PC, Xbox One, and PS4.
