The last few days the team has been hard at work on Four Fronts. We have started work on one of our Pacific Theater maps for multiplayer. The map “Iwo Jima” (Working Title) will be featured in the game showing off its beauty before the US launched an artillery strike on the island.
The Island its self is fairly big and will feature key locations from our Facebook survey. Our Top pick from the survey was an Air Strip followed by a Small Island Town and a Beached Ship and Small Jungle are tied for third. All four locations will be featured on our Iwo Jima map given the size and scale of the map.
The terrain will be rocky and jungle like, depicting what the island looked like post battle. Although Iwo Jima has 2 Air Strips and one under construction during WWII, we will be removing one air strip and replacing it with the Small Island Town and the unfinished strip will probably be a jungle area. Currently the Beached ship is in place and have begun to layout the map around it. The ship is based off of the USS Oklahoma, with fully operational guns. The decks below in the haul of the ship will be accessible as well.
The Game Modes for this map will feature Assault (A revamped version of Battlefields Rush), Large Scale Domination, Team Death Match, And a new game mode we will announce at a latter date. Below are some photos to give you a glimpse at the scale and size of the map.
