There might be some major changes in the works for the Halvoy map in Battlefield V Firestorm, if potentially leaked information is to be believed.
While gamers might still be enjoying jumping into the title’s current Halvoy map, it looks as if a significant expansion may be coming soon.
"While managing the co-ordinated of the spawn locations I came across the idea that the Firestorm map seems to be cut horizontally,” the data miner said. “We’re currently just playing on the lower half of it.”
This would suggest that players have only yet seen half of Halvoy, which may or may not tease an expansion in the future.
Comparing the Halvoy layout with Twisted Steel, a vast multiplayer map, it was clear to see that the former had a clear center point, whereas the latter’s X axis is actually much closer to the border than the middle.
Battlefield level designer Matt Wagner has responded to the leaked information on Twitter, where he explained that having the point not in the center is completely normal.
This is based on you assuming that 0,0 (x,y) has to be in the middle of the map? Fuck, that means Devastation was planned to be 4 times as big, right? Someone should have told me. pic.twitter.com/lArdPGest9— Matt Wagner 🦈 (@Kenturrac) April 17, 2019
“This is based on you assuming that 0,0 (x,y) has to be in the middle of the map?” he tweeted. “Fuck, that means Devastation was planned to be 4 times as big, right? Someone should have told me.”
Whether or not the designer is simply trying to hide a future change to the map is unknown. He might well have killed the expansion theory, but it’s certainly one aspect of the game to keep tabs on.
