Battlefield V is about to say hello to one of the most iconic multiplayer maps in history. Battlefield 1942’s legendary Wake Island is coming to Battlefield as a free update on December 12th, featuring that same familiar horseshoe design but clocking in at roughly twice the size.

DICE has said the improvements made to BFV’s version of Wake Island are designed to improve the pacing of matches. Snipers and other long range weapons won’t be too overpowered though, with additional valleys and vegetation providing plenty of cover for running between the flags. 

Wake’s always been a classic map and it should be an excellent showcase for Battlefield V’s land, sea and air sandbox antics. Couple it with the recently released Iwo Jima and Pacific Storm maps and DICE is finally doing the franchise justice again.

You may have spotted a teaser for a new map tucked in right at the end there, possibly a fourth and final location for the Pacific chapter. It’s pretty much impossible to tell whether it’s a new map or a remake but I guess it could possibly be a Guadalcanal rejig.

Wake Island comes to Battlefield V as a free update on December 12th.

How do you increase the area of an island by twice? Isn't it a limited area land.

Dice can shove that wake island up their arses after the crappy 5.2 ttk change... they just don't know what player base wants. Gunplay was one single strong point of the game and pacific content was turning point for this title. They have ruined all that within a month. WELL DONE! CLAP! CLAP! CLAP!

still won't get me into buying the game and i still claim that it's a missed opportunity
putting modern mechanics into history theme ain't good imo. enjoying historical games at their fullest is when they're simple

Whats wrong with the HP regen? (you only regen 30hp automatically) its a feature in Bf since Bad Company 1, and Ammo you pick up a certain amount based on your weapon from killed enemies and can full ammo pick up from crates.

for me call of duty was better at story mode, but battlefield ruled in online mode.

Are the pacific maps still stuttery? What's the point of having 100 fps when it's just showing that clock warning on the right of the HUD and the game just freezing...Should fix that before shoving out new maps.

I don't have any stutter problems in this game. Don't know if my custom CFG file helps me here.

It's just on the new maps. Mercury also had that issue at some point.
