Cheers for the info, I'm not gonna read it all just now. But was there any mention of it also being the biggest map on console? I'm thinking this map on console will be the same size as Caspien or Firestorm.

They did say that it'll be the biggest one yet, so I assume they automatically mean on console aswell

Looking at the video of it, it does look good, hope it's not too big for 24 players

(sorry for the double post, I had trouble editing the other one)

 

a nice comparison was posted in the text aswell saying:

 

"As a comparison, Caspian Border is roughly 1,100 meters between the U.S. and Russian deployments — around 800 meters difference both in width and length. Should you count the distance between your spawned jet and the enemy spawned jet, you will end up with 2,400 meters on Bandar Desert"

 

EDIT:

I only just found out that there are already some vids out on youtube for instance this one:

Please let that AC 130 Gunship be actually controllable in the DLC.....

 

That would be sweet!

It's just a spawn point. I think it'll be kinda like those 3 airplane bomb drops from 1943. Who ever takes the flag at that airbase, can use the AC130 every now & again.

you know what, this looks great, I have never been a fan of the tight / small maps, but what I really want is the *****ing game fixed.

 

I find it incredibly arrogant of both EA & DICE to keep pumping this stuff out while the game is still broken, and chargeing people for things to "enhance" a broken game at that.

 

seriously, it's so much of a "***** you" were going to make as much money as humanly possible attitude

 

Considering this game is on a platform as old as the PS3 is, along with its limited graphical capabilities etc I think it's good, however, they have missed out on the oppopportunity of releasing one of the greatest fps shooters so far with their short-sighted view on things.

It'll probably take days to get from the base, to the objective. When you're on foot, after your teammate has zoomed off in the last jeep. :Lol:

 

Does sound pretty nice. Can only hope they can work some magic, so we're not stuck on 24 players for a map of this scale.
