A while back, we talked about the road ahead for Battlefield 4 [battlelog.battlefield.com]™ and how we will continue to support the game with more content. We were pretty vague. Now however, the time is right for shedding some more light on what you can expect going forward.

We plan to release new content in a slightly different way, always with our ear to the ground and enhancing the game based on your feedback. Expect game updates and tweaks, but also bigger content drops.

Create the Community Map with Us



Ok. This is something we’ve never done before. There’s a piece of content coming in 2015 that we’re really excited about. We will build a Battlefield 4 map together with you – the community. Together with our development team, you will get to shape a playable map based on your input and expertise on what makes a fun multiplayer level. This map will then be tested and tweaked in the CTE (Community Test Environment), available for Battlefield 4 Premium members.

View our youtube video here:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c8i3DGUGwfo [youtube.com]

As part of this CTE testing you will be providing feedback* on the map, and creating the final thing together with us. During this process we’ll be sharing behind-the-scenes details of what the development process for making a multiplayer map looks like.

As a thank you to the Battlefield community for sticking to your Battlefield 4 guns and giving excellent feedback to improve the game, we want to show our appreciation by releasing the “Community Map” on all platforms.

Give Community Map feedback on the Battlefield 4 CTE forum [cte.battlelog.com]

Winter Patch Arriving in March



In March, we’ll deploy what we call the Winter Patch, polishing things like netcode and soldier collision. This update will also tweak one of our competitive game modes, Squad Obliteration. Fast-paced and hugely focused on team work, this will become the lead competitive game mode for Battlefield 4.

In case you haven’t had the chance to try it yourself yet, Squad Obliteration features two five-player teams fighting for possession of a bomb on the map. Your goal is to destroy two out of three enemy bases with these bombs to win. 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.

More to Come



Stay tuned for more news on Battlefield 4 updates including the Community Map and more. It should be a fun ride since you’ll be helping perfect the experience together with us.

Try playing on servers close to your area.....yes a do have lag....but its maybe once every 15 games. Then its comes and goes....Playable enough for me

I would love for lag compensation to be addressed so US servers weren't full of high ping bullet sponges.
If you're thinking about buying Battlefront, watch this first: http://xboxdvr.com/gamer/eXc%20Drake/video/12909329

I want to be able to enjoy what we have first. to even be able to play the game without high ping exploiting cheats in every and i mean EVERY dam server i join in my own region . FIX THAT then get back to us

I think a map where the teams are on multiple planes... then about 3 minutes into the round the plane blows and you crash in an ocean etc. with islands and wreckage around you. (Note it would be nice if the plane was levolution based, f.e. Someone could blow a hole in the side with C4 and the plane would crash...)
But if you guys feel the island idea is getting old... maby something that hasn't been done before... like... a type of post-nuclear explosion in a city or something, that's up to the Premium members to decide... but anyway... I would love it if you look at this message and maby take some of my ideas. Sorry if I've given negative feedback up untill this point, I was extremely frustrated with all the DLC's and Instant unlocks going on like a F2P game. Used to stay away from the big names, but BF4 has brought me closer again (After I got the ACW-R of course!) I also love the idea of BF Hardline, going to buy it as soon as I can! Thnx for a great game and all your hard work sofar!

We need a down out right in your face a$$ kicking map.....make it kinda small so it becomes a bigger fire fight an the option to have 64 players. No upstairs no roof camping just a strait up front line fire fight. Somthing like storming the beach an the other team has to dig in fast an stop us from pushing them back .

What would be great in the map is either the map being a jungle map or part jungle. It would be awesome to fight through jungle terrain and foliage. I really hope to see some jungle in the map!

I would love to see hacking devices with real Puzzles...and not blowing Mcoms,

i mean : Defender team create some Code in the Mcom, so attackers need to disable it in order to achieve the infiltration. This mcom unlocks some weapons for the attacker team or maybe a vehicle... or visceversa!

Im thinking more of a city map like seige of shanghai, but match it with the rain theme of the game, the setting will be night time, city, lights coming off buildings, raining, every 5-6 minutes lightning strikes; Showing parts of the map lit up, i think that type of setting would be amazing

That would be an awesome fight in an ancient Inca/Maya city :p
And the levolution would be some kind of judgment day prophecy xD

A cardboard box would be nice. Shove 64 players into a 4x4 hole and watch and the one guy places down C4 and instantly becomes 32-1.
