The Breakaway Redesign

As expected, the Breakaway map will also undergo a complete overhaul, offering a more exciting experience than today. There is reason to be confident because of the work already done on previously redesigned cards. The expected improvements are:

Glacier Peak: Formerly a wide open area with little cover for protection, the Penguins have created an outpost with buildings to traverse to gain control of the immediate area.

Ice Shelf: Significant improvements have been made to the Breakaway Ice Shelf area, with a new flag on the glacier and new routes to encourage flanking between the glacier and the relocated oil rig.

Oil Rig: One of our favorite game locations has been moved to the base of the Glacier, allowing for even more frenetic combat as it’s closer to the action than before. New ways to attack an oil platform have been defined and new paths and covers have been introduced to the game.

Snow Cave: Nestled in the glacier, you’ll find a snow cave with a crashed Condor MV-38 inside. Valuable resources are scattered around this location as your team works to secure this new capture point.

Workers’ Village: Military presence and fortifications have increased in this area. Cleaner navigation and shorter distances between pick-up points should ensure traffic remains smooth in Fahla Village. Rumor has it that the workers of this village also throw the best parties. But we haven’t received an invitation yet.

Other new features to come

In addition to these great additions, Battlefield 2042 version 3.2 will introduce thermal sights. Unlike older games, the entire screen will not benefit from the effect, only what the player will see in the viewfinder. Zain will also be able to take advantage of this with the XM370A. Smoke from equipment or vehicles will be opaque, while smoke from the environment will be transparent.

Thanks to new weapons and equipment, enough other new elements are added to the thermal landscapes to make the game more consistent.
