'Battlefield V' (ALL) Will Be Getting Operation Underground Map Later This Week - Trailer

by Rainier on Oct. 1, 2019 @ 4:53 p.m. PDT

Enter mankind's greatest conflict with Battlefield V as the series goes back to its roots with a never-before-seen portrayal of World War 2.

Assemble your Company of customized soldiers, weapons, and vehicles – then take them on an epic journey through the Tides of War. Experience the most intense, immersive Battlefield yet. You will never be the same.

Featuring a fresh portrayal of one of mankind’s biggest conflicts, Battlefield V allows players to feel the unmatched intensity of all-out war and travel to unexpected but crucial moments of World War 2 through new and signature multiplayer modes, single-player War Stories and the cooperative Combined Arms. In Battlefield V, embark on a continuing, grand journey post-launch in the brand new Tides of War, created to make sure the battlefield is constantly evolving with new events, challenges, battles, and rewards that are always within reach – for all Battlefield V owners.

Battlefield V multiplayer will deliver the most immersive gameplay of the franchise in a sandbox environment that portrays the battles of World War 2, allowing players to feel the force of the fight and truly shape the war as the war shapes them. Players’ soldiers can now tow stationary weapons, build fortifications and repair war-torn structures to turn the battlefield to the player’s advantage. Whether dragging a squad mate to safety or shooting a grenade out of the sky, players will forge a deeper connection to the ever-evolving world around them and achieve victory against the toughest odds. With the freedom to adapt and evolve the battlefield in new and unseen ways, the battlefield will never be the same.

Drawing inspiration from the Operation Métro map featured in Battlefield 3 and Battlefield 4: Second Assault, Operation Underground is a true passion project in level design.

Operation Underground Overview

Featuring intense close-quarter combat, the map takes place in a war-torn German city environment across diverse play areas including urban streets and courtyards, and within the narrow tunnels of the German underground railway, passenger and supply trains. The trains are halted when artillery fire ruptures the ground above, causing both sides to navigate through the confined space to reach the other side. 

The map can be played in the Conquest, Squad Conquest, Breakthrough, and Team Deathmatch game modes. For limited time periods, Rush will be a supported game mode, 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

  • Units: Infantry Only
  • Size: Small
  • Tempo: Fast and Chaotic

Playstyle

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 Operation Métro from Battlefield 3 and Battlefield4 or Marita in Battlefield V.

Key Areas and Conquest Capture Points

You’ll experience fast and dynamic firefights in a train station, on city streets, and on an open plaza when playing the objective on Operation Underground. Below, we’ve detailed these three main areas.

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. Down here, German soldiers are still lingering and must be defeated before the Allies can claim the city is free of enemies. 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.

Tips for Success on Operation Underground

  • Teamwork is key for getting results – more so than on most maps. Communicate, coordinate, and share resources. Securing a win here really proves your team effort.
  • Look for Fortification opportunities to secure ammo, cover, and flow changers, and learn how to best use them as attacker and defender. Be aware that some Fortifications become available as the match proceeds.
  • Are you a skilled diver willing to take a risk? You may very well find a beneficial flank on the map. Take the plunge and set up a surprise attack on your enemies.
  • If you reach a good position through difficult flanks, it may be worth waiting for your squad to spawn in on you before revealing yourself. This way, you’ll double down on the effect and reward.
  • The map sectors have pros and cons for different weapon setups. Some locations provide more long-range opportunities, while others are quite the opposite. Look over and tweak your Company loadouts to tackle all scenarios and be effective at each sector.

Operation Underground is coming to Battlefield V as a free update on October 3 2019.

In new and classic multiplayer modes, players can lead their own unique Company to victory in a dynamic multiplayer experience where every battle is unique. The Company allows players to create and deeply customize their soldiers, weapons and vehicles that will evolve as they progress, covering everything from the way they look to the way they play. Fan favorite modes like the 64-player Conquest return, with the game’s multiplayer culminating in Grand Operations, an all-new live, event-based experience within Tides of War. These multimap, multi-mode dynamic events take players through vast historical battles to relive moments of bravery and desperation while fighting to the final objective.

The single-player campaign mode from Battlefield 1, War Stories, returns for Battlefield V. Witness the conflict through the eyes of men and women of World War 2 and experience untold stories of human drama, filled with Battlefield moments. Experience the freezing Norwegian landscapes as a young Norwegian resistance fighter or come ashore into the desert heat of North Africa - and more.

Tides of War is DICE’s new approach to live services, where players will set out on an epic journey with their Company in unexpected battles throughout World War 2. There will be no premium pass, all players will have access to the same maps and modes, keeping the community unified as they progress through Battlefield V. In Tides of War, their journey through World War 2 will grow through themed experiences that will include events and all-new ways to play like Grand Operations, while also unlocking the latest themed rewards such as weapons and vehicles to further shape their Company.

Battlefield V is now available worldwide for Xbox One, PS4 and Origin for PC.
