DICE provides a fresh look at an old favorite.

DICE is set to release the Operation Underground map for Battlefield V very soon. In fact, it may actually be released this week. Operation Underground is essentially a Battlefield V take on Operation Metro from Battlefield 3. It was first announced back in June during EA's E3 event.

This week, a new preview for the map provides us with a new trailer. We learn that the original designer of Operation Metro was also the lead designer of Operation Underground. It's simultaneously recognizable but with enough "newness" that isn't not a carbon copy of the original.

Operation Underground is still very much a close-quarter focused experience. Given the design of the map, there are no vehicles. However, the game will be playable in the following modes: Conquest, Squad Conquest, Breakthrough, and Team Deathmatch. There will also be limited time periods where Rush will be included.

Let's take a look at the key areas of Operation Underground.

BF5 - Operation Underground

Capture Point A: Crossroads
This point is all about city streets and courtyards with plenty of enterable buildings with several floors. The area was an important hub for the city’s military activity, which is why it was bombed by the Allies before the attack.

Capture Point B: Train Station
The train station served as both a shelter and a crucial part of the supply line in and out of the city. Down here, German soldiers are still lingering and must be defeated before the Allies can claim the city is free of enemies. The area will be familiar to fans of Operation Metro-style gameplay – but with more flanking routes! Prepare for occasional floods, opening and closing access to handy shortcuts.

Capture Point C: Plaza
This is the command center of the city’s German operation. The plaza is a more open area with a big accessible town hall in the center. Converted to a military command center that pulls the strings of the German defense of the city, the town hall has limited access to higher floors, but many rooms on the first floor.
