“The road ahead for Battlefield 4” is now being realized as DICE and EA are planning a community-made map that will take fan-input into how to design and construct a Battlefield 4 multiplayer map.
This new content-development project will have developers and fans consistently in contact giving feedback on how the level is progressing.
Each week a Community Test Environment will be updated and tuned for Battlefield 4 Premium members to try out and respond to the changes.
At the end of this development period the map will be a free download on all platforms.
Besides the community map, a new update will improve the netcode and other minor technical issues in the Winter Update coming this March. Also changing is the primary gamemode of the game itself as well. Now Squad Obliteration will be the lead competitive mode as DICE seems to be hoping for greater Twitch.tv streaming publicity.
Our ambition with Squad Obliteration is to create something fast and challenging for the players and an entertaining experience for those who watch the matches. – Battlefield Battlelog
Squad Obliteration brings a faster-pace in 5-on-5 action and with both teams fighting to destroy two opposing bases with bombs.
More updates are to come in regards to when the community map will start being developed.
