Coming this December to PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC, Legacy Operations, a new Battlefield 4 DLC, includes Dragon Valley 2015, a classic map reimagined both visually and with new gameplay features. This large map opens up for vehicular mayhem on land, air, and sea. Players can destroy or repair bridges for a tactical advantage. For infantry players, the dockyards offer intense close-quarter combat in Team Death Match.

The Battlefield 4 Holiday Update will be automatically released to your platform on the same day, but the free Legacy Operations DLC will be a separate, manual download available from the Origin My Games tab, the PlayStation PS Store, and Xbox Marketplace.

EA’s Battlelog has details on Battlefield 4: Legacy Operations, a free DLC pack coming soon to Battlefield 4 for Windows, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. At the center of the release is Dragon Valley 2015, an updated version of the Dragon Valley map from Battlefield 2, saying this “opens up for vehicular mayhem on land, air, and sea, with a massive number of flags, and destructible and repairable bridges.” This trailer shows off some play testing of the map, and here’s a bit on how the original had to be changed:

If you played Battlefield 2, you likely remember the map – it was huge, with a massive number of flags, and destructible and repairable bridges. Our goal for this map is to make a great, large vehicle map for Battlefield 4 but at the same time modernize the original where appropriate.

Some things had to change when reimagining the map. Battlefield 2 featured a poor draw distance (how far you can see in the game world) by today’s standards, and the original map was built around those limitations. We tackled this in several ways: first we increased the terrain verticality to closer mimic a real life Chinese river valley – and to give us more terrain occlusion for long distances, especially on the central island. We also added a dynamic cloud layer, which not only adds a welcomed air-to-ground separation in terms of gameplay, but also helps shroud far distances at ground level. This has the added bonus effect of allowing you to have intense aerial firefights above the cloud level, which looks really, really cool in Battlefield 4.

Though Battlefield 4 launched in October, 2013, developer DICE is still supporting it through updates. With the new Spring Update, Battlefield 4 has now enhanced the experience from several angles, adding new weapons, a new online mode, re-balancing the weapons, and much more.

The new weapons balancing is illustrated above in the image taken from EA and DICE’s patch notes. In addition, DICE is adding a new assault rifle in the AN94, a new carbine in the Groza-1, a new PDW in the Groza-4, a new sidearm in the Mare’s leg, and a new LMG in the L86A1. The new update also brings various netcode improvements including minimizing player stuttering and boosting the performance of fast-handling vehicles over the network. Those with a keen ear will also notice new audio improvements, including DICE introducing a unique sound for headshots and improved bullet sounds for soldier impacts.

DICE is also bringing back the Gun Master mode, which was found in Battlefield 3: Close Quarters. The mode plays out like team deathmatch, only you change weapons every two kills. The first player to record a kill with the final gun wins. The mode brings with it five preset playlists within it to give you a variety of different gun sets to experience Gun Master with.

If you’d like to read the full patch notes, you can head to EA’s PDF, which runs down all of the updates in painstaking detail.
