Stretching 1.9km between U.S. and Russian deployment zones, Battlefield 3‘s upcoming Bandar Desert map for the ‘Armored Kill’ DLC is being touted by DICE as the biggest in any Battlefield game to date – longer than Caspian Border and longer even than Fushe Pass from Battlefield 2.
“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,” writes DICE Designer Inge Jøran Holberg. “From the closest capturable flag to the furthest capturable flag, you are looking at around 1,200 meters. For Caspian Border, the equivalent distance is just about 400 meters.” Holberg also offers some tips for handling the extreme new open vistas in-game, so take a look.
