The more recent Battlefield games have a touch of nostalgia for the classic games, as seen in the likes of Battlefield 3’s remake of Battlefield 2’s best maps for the Strike at Karkand DLC. That nostalgia hasn’t stopped, and the latest new-old map is Dragon Valley, which has been remade for Battlefield 4.
The winner of a poll, a full remake of Dragon Valley has been made available in the Community Test Environment of Battlefield 4. The map has significantly more foliage thanks to the vast differences between BF2 and BF4’s engines. Lack of sight thanks to a poor draw distance in BF2 is gone, but since that was a characteristic of the map some taller terrain elements have been added to mimic the effect. The repairable bridges that were such an iconic part of Dragon Valley are back too, providing a great tactical opportunity.
The map is only in CTE right now, but will eventually be made available as a main map in the standard game.
