Been busy duking it out in the muddy Nordic trenches of Firestorm mode? Fancy a holiday? DICE has you covered, as Battlefield 5’s new Mediterranean map Mercury has finally been unveiled. Unfortunately warfare is still included in this holiday package.
The map comes as part of Chapter 3 of Tides of War, (as outlined by DICE’s live service roadmap), and will be downloadable for free on 30th May.
Aside from looking pretty, Mercury is also based on the real-life events of 1941, where the British sought to fend off invading Nazi paratroopers in Operation Mercury (also known as the Battle of Crete). DICE describes Mercury as a medium-large map focused on “verticality, all-out war and asymmetrical vehicle forces”. Appropriately, the Brits will dominate the tank game, while the Germans “control the skies” with more planes than their allied opponents.
