EA and DICE have released a free new map for download. Operation Aberdeen is set in North Africa and lets players duke it out in one of the biggest tank battles of World War II. Each team starts with armour-filled control points, and it's a quest to grab outposts and points surrounding the map's central town.
This release came as something of a surprise to EG's resident BF1942 fans, who recently had to fork out for six new maps in a 20 quid mission pack. At the time of the review, Martin said that "this is the sort of content that should be made available to faithful customers absolutely gratis". It remains to be seen whether this move represents a change of strategy with regards to free BF content.
You can grab Operation Aberdeen from EA's official website.
