Wake Island Comes To Battlefield V

Looks like more intense action to try out.

Just in time for the holiday playing season, DICE is bringing back the
return of Wake Island, arguably the most popular map in Battlefield
franchise history. The beloved map will launch for free on Thursday,
December 12, as part of the latest Tides of War update, Chapter 5: War in
the Pacific.

Wake Island made its debut as an E3 demo for the original game, Battlefield
1942 back in 2002. Since then, the map has appeared in numerous Battlefield
games, including Battlefield 1943, Battlefield 2, Battlefield 3 and
now, Battlefield
V. Mr Battlefield himself, Lars Gustavsson, recently discussed the history
of Wake Island in a blog post that can be found here

Battlefield veterans will get to revisit this iconic map with the same
classic layout, but now with the looks, sounds and features of Battlefield V,
including the game-changing fortification mechanics. Wake Island will
feature both the fast-paced action of Breakthrough mode, and the more
traditional Conquest Assault mode. Both gameplay modes are certain to
deliver nonstop action as squads set out to conquer their objective.

In celebration of the return of Wake Island, DICE has also released a new
trailer that can be viewed here

To assist soldiers in preparing for battle, the developers themselves
compiled a few tips on how to ensure victory on Wake Island, listed below:


   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
   Use them.

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