The Wake Island map turned Battlefield into one of the top shooter franchises out there. DICE announced its plan to bring the map back when it first started talking about bringing the Pacific Theater to Battlefield V. Today, we see it in action.
Three minutes of nostalgia helps us forget the time-to-kill (TTK) change that went live this week. For a little while, at least.
The reimagining of the Wake Island map in Battlefield V is twice the size it originally was. According to DICE, the more sprawling map “helped us to create better pacing in matches.” But the complete overhaul also means more cover for pushing snipers. With the recent changes made to how much damage guns do at long range, I hope so.
DICE also designed the map to work well with the Breakthrough mode. This mode has been in Battlefield V for a while now, but I’ve been enjoying it much more on the Pacific maps. These maps lend themselves so well to the invasion-like mechanics.
