Battlefield 5 Adds New Free Map On PS4, Xbox One, And PC
Marita goes live on July 30.
A new map has arrived for Battlefield V players. Marita, the next free map to be added as part of the game's Chapter 4: Defying the Odds expansion, is now available on PS4, Xbox One, and PC. The map went live on all platforms alongside the game's 4.2.1 update today, July 30.
Set in Greece, Marita emphasizes verticality and firefights, making for an intense addition to the rotation. As developer DICE describes: "Deploy on a sloping mountain ridge and within the tight streets of a rural town on this infantry-focused map. Tanks and aircraft will stand aside for intense gunfights and sneaky flanks in the cobbled streets."
The 4.2.1 update weighs in at 500 MB on Xbox One and 300 MB on PC. Following Marita's addition to the game, a Marita-only playlist is also now available. As DICE explains on Reddit, this playlist will rotate between one round of Conquest and two rounds of Breakthrough. A new Marita playlist will follow on August 8; this one will be for 32-player modes and will switch between Domination, Frontlines, and Team Deathmatch.
Marita isn't the only piece of new content coming to Battlefield V this week. Also arriving today are two new Elite skins: Norman Kingsley and Ilse Schattenwolf. Both will be available for purchase from Battlefield V's in-game store shortly after Marita goes live. You can read more about the new Elites on the Battlefield V website.
Next month, DICE will introduce two new close-quarters maps to the game: Provence and Lofoten Islands. Then in October, the game will receive its Operation Underground map, which takes place in an underground subway system, with a new Iwo Jima map set to follow later in the year.
