Thanks to @Dannyonpc for the heads up. In the Server Browser there are 3 new maps:

-Wake Islands
-Solomon Islands
-Al Marj Encampment

"Marj" is arabic for range. So probably a large open map with 0 cover.

    That's very interesting. Looking forward to this. Hopefully all Conquest and Breakthrough maps. Well at least Wake Island is.

    Yeah I posted the Temporyal tweet of Solomon Islands is the Jungle map in RSP thread.  I believe Temporyal was guessing long before that Solomon was jungle like a few months back.  Marj is probably a dull map like Hamada/Al Sundan desert with little cover and running for miles.

    North Africa most probably, a seperate campaign in WW2.

    Marj, also spelt El Merj, generally believed to be on the site of the ancient city of Barca or Barce, is a city in northeastern Libya. It lies in an upland valley separated from the Mediterranean Sea by a range of hills, part of the Jebel Akhdar Mountains.

    During the World War II North African campaign, the 1st Field Regiment, Royal Australian Artillery won a battle for the region of Barce on 5 February 1941.

    I just recently found out that my grandfather was a tanker in North Africa. His tank got hit and he got blasted out of it. All his crew were killed, but he survived. Sobering thought.

    It is still a part of british struggle against germans which was the only thing we got during the whole first year. Became boring and uninspiring already. Unless Dice can pull it off somehow.

    It must have been chaotic for British/Commonwealth tank crews in North Africa, going up against the 75mm plus anti tank guns and the longer barrel German tanks, later in the African campaign.. the lay out of the land gave them massive sight lines.

    Marj in Libya seems to have plenty of vegetation and it looks like a very built up urban area today, which would be completely different to any of the base African maps.

    It's about the map, not the costumes

    Al Marj Encampment was one of the 5v5 maps.

    It's actually about the atmosphere and general enjoyment. Default maps do not have those unfortunately.

    Another unknown battle for the Brits? Could at least have put it in Burma to get some Japan vs Britain action.

    As stated above it may be a reference to a battle Australians fought in. Libya is of huge significance to skips and kiwi veterans of WW2. Solomon Islands could be also. Which also means the Owen gun could be inbound,

    Twisted Steel and Arras are fine, the rest are bland. The rest don't really feel like large open battlefield maps.

    They should've done a Dunkirk map, possibly something like Tubrok for Africa.

    or how about some blooming Battle of the Ardenne? Specifically with a Belgian faction defending, so we can all ''resist and bite'' ;) but knowing DICE, I feel that they will just make it Brits vs Germans. I'd be down for a Belgian uniform cosmetic though, soften the blow a little

    The unkown battles aspect has nothing to do with how the game feels.. it's all to do with map design.

    They could easily have done the paratroop invasion of Crete in 1941 as a breakthrough/conquest map. The Dieppe raid with the Canadians in 1942, if they had to go down the known battle aspect to keep it immersive.

    Pacific led maps, I'd like to see the Brits in Burma, Borneo or Malaya. The battle of Kohima kept the British Empire in India and eventually, I believe, it was the first time the [email protected] retreated against the British Army.

    When I played today, I was kicked from a game, and then that level image came up.. Others had this issue?
