Battlefield 5 Wake Island Map Out Soon

If you’re a fan of the Battlefield series, then you should be familiar with the Wake Island map. It originally debuted as an E3 demo for Battlefield 1942 in 2002, and has since appeared in various entires in the series, including Battlefield 1943, Battlefield 2, and Battlefield 3.

Here’s some tips from the development team on the new map:

  • In Breakthrough, attackers get tanks in the first sector, defenders don’t. If you’re attacking, take advantage of this. Also, if you spot defenders hiding in the Hotel, take it down! Defenders can build Fortifications to counter this.

  • Attackers can find ways to destroy the Hangar as well. Defenders should set up tank traps as soon as possible to stop the tanks from moving into the Hangar.

  • Some of the bunkers can be destroyed, some cannot. Defenders can use the tunnels leading to the bunkers to their advantage by creating a choke point.

  • The last sector is the prime target for calling in artillery or rocket Reinforcements. Use them.

  • Do not underestimate the small boats! They are fast, nimble, and perfect for flanking.

Battlefield 5 was released in November 2018 for the PS4, PC, and Xbox One, and its latest update launched earlier this week. Get the full details here.

EA recently announced that the next chapter in the series won’t launch until FY22, which probably means we’ll see it out for the PlayStation 5 in late 2021. For now, the publisher is focusing its attention on Apex Legends.
