Next BF2 patch gets new map

Beta for patch opens in July; Road to Jalalabad map, tuning, various bug fixes "only a small portion" of updates.


The Digital Illusions CE Battlefield Team has revealed that a new patch for the wildly popular PC shooter Battlefield 2 is in the works. On the official Battlefield 2 page, a post in the Community Update section gives cybersoldiers their first taste of what to expect in the next update.

The biggest addition to the game will be the Road to Jalalabad map, which has been running on test servers. The map, which wasn't detailed, will be free of charge and not part of a booster pack. In addition to the map, the usual array of gameplay tuning, bug fixing, and issue resolving are "only a small portion" of the changes being made, with more details expected to be announced in the future.

The open beta test for the patch will be scheduled for July. DICE did not mention any specific time frame for the patch's release.

Battlefield 2 is rated T for Teen and retails for $39.99. For more information on the game, check out GameSpot's review.
