    Well Battlefield fans, the moment we've all been waiting for is finally here. Even though DICE has moved on to Battlefield Hardline, they have still continued to update and add patches to this two year old title. Now, after releasing Night Operations just one month ago, they are bestowing upon us the Community Operations DLC. This new map pack will be absolutely free to all players, across all platforms.

    Announced earlier this year, DICE said they would take suggestions and ideas from the community to collaborate with us on new maps that would include features we've wanted to see make their way to the game. Earlier in the week, they revealed one of the maps that will be making its way onto this DLC, named Operation Outbreak. This map consists of an ancient temple with a vast waterfall, a medical facility in the depths of a valley, along with a dense jungle. All of which will surely test your wit and instincts amongst the differing environments.

    The part of the map which features a valley has very limited access, and will certainly be based around utilizing a heavy infantry presence. Although, the strategic use of RHIB boats on the river, along with quads and light armor vehicles will make for a tough battle. Not much else is known just yet on this map, except the fact that it will surely bring a breath of fresh air to the game.
    DICE hasn't announced an exact release date for this new DLC, besides mentioning that it will be coming out in Fall of 2015. They have also said that this DLC is separate from the Fall patch, and that they will reveal more news for the DLC, and Operation Outbreak in the coming weeks. I will be updating this article when DICE announces more details, so be sure to click 'Watch this Article' for the latest on Battlefield 4's new map pack!

    UPDATE - In a week's time the information that has been revealed about Community Operations is somewhat little, to say the least. DICE has only detailed six key points of interest since the original announcement. Besides those, it is slowly becoming more evident that the developers may only be focusing on a single map as they did with Night Operations.

    A few of the quick facts that DICE has revealed have already been described in this article, including that Operation Outbreak has a temple with a waterfall, and that the map was created with the help of the Battlefield community. The other four facts which weren't exactly known are that the map will have five key locations, presumably being where the five flags would be stationed for Conquest matches. Furthermore, the map will take place at a secret Indonesian medical research facility which was attempting to develop some sort of virus, while testing said virus on monkeys. What followed was a chaotic situation where the test monkeys got loose and began destroying the area around the facility, giving the map a bit of a backstory.

    Apart from that, the only other facts that were mentioned are that the location could've been in a desert or mountain region, which were the two other options the community could've voted on. Lastly, DICE has said the community was also able to vote on the name for the map. As the developers took on a plethora of suggestions, and then put up a poll for us to make the final decision. There have also been a few more screenshots published onto Battlelog which are in the spoiler below.

    Want this game still, but dont want to download Origins

      What do you mean by 'download Origins?' If you're referring to connecting to Battlelog, it's actually really easy and doesn't require any downloading.

      Like Origins, on PC, where you launch lots of EA games from. I dislike it lol.
    3. RaoulDuke
      Oh lol I got you. I don't think it's a requirement or anything to have to use Origins on PC. Then again I'm not a PC gamer, but I'm pretty sure it's not needed.

    This is cool news, I love BF4 and new maps are always fun! Even though it's "an old game" I don't usually have any problems finding a full server to join ( in response to ItalianLad's comment)

    Still releasing DLC for BF4? As long as people keep buying it good on them I guess!

      Missed that part. Regardless, they are still attempting to keep the game up to date. What other reason would there be than some sort of profit?
    3. AlienFreek01
      Well, the certainly aremt making money from Hardline lol... the only real way for them to make money is if people buy thr game, but there is probably very few who are going to buy a game for one map lol.
    4. Wavy
      True :tongue: Although it's the collection of free DLC they have released that they want people to be attracted to, then to buy the game. Then in hopes, to buy DLC.

    I'm looking forward to this, when I first heard about this coming to Battlefield I never actually thought it would happen but I'm pleased that it is. And the fact it's free is a bonus!

    I don't know why they are still making DLC's for this game, its 3 years old, they have Battlefield Hardline and now Battlefront. I guess they just want money.
    1. RaoulDuke
      Not exactly sure that I agree with you here. This DLC is free for everyone, so they will be making $0 dollars off of it.
    2. AlienFreek01
      Uh that doesnt make sense. Its a free dlc, so they arent making money. The only reason they still do stuff for BF4 is because no one likes hardline, so they please more people this way

    Haha can't wait to get it.

    Looks awesome! Can't wait!

      So true. I am just now going back to it, since no-one plays it on pc anymore and only a decent amount play it on consoles. It died very quickly. The night operations is the coolest thing ever. :smile:
    3. RaoulDuke
      I have to agree with you on those points. Also that Night Operations is a really fun map to play on. Albeit, quite challenging. But, that's exactly why I play BF4. :biggrin:

      Same here :tongue:
