EA Play's pre-E3 presentation on Battlefield 5 focused heavily on a series of new maps coming soon to the multiplayer game. We also learned that max rank is increasing dramatically, from 50 to 500, along with confirmation that private games are on the way. And alongside the recent Origin Access release, Battlefield V is out now on EA Access on Xbox One. When the service launches on PS4 in July, the game will be available in the Vault on that console as well.
The first map shown is called Marita, based on the village where the Battle of Greece began. It features a sloping mountain ridge and tight streets, with lots of hills and multi-story buildings for verticality. Allies are in control of the town, while the Axis tries to break their stronghold. It launches in July.

The second new map shown, Al Sundan, is the next one to arrive: It launches on June 27. It takes place in an African desert and is a large, wide map leaving plenty of room for air battles, and the Axis has established an air base. When you play in Conquest Mode it will have six flags, and campaign players will recognize the map from the mission Under No Flag. It's coming as part of Tides of War Chapter 4, which will also see two new close-quarters maps added.
Finally, the third map is Operation Underground, an underground battlefield similar to Metro from previous Battlefield games but entirely reimagined. That one is coming in October, between Chapters 4 and 5.
Beyond this, EA also further confirmed that Battlefield V is adding the Pacific Theater. This will include the Iwo Jima map and M1 Garand weapon, among other things still to be confirmed.
