Today, EA and DICE revealed a lot about their upcoming plans for Battlefield 5. Not only will Chapter 4 kick off later this month—around June 27—but fans can also look forward to a trip to the Pacific Theater of War later this year.

Set to arrive this fall, Battlefield 5 will feature a chapter that focuses solely on the Pacific Theater of War, more specifically around iconic locations like Iwo Jima, and other well-known scenes of battle in the Pacific Ocean Theater of World War 2. Not much is known about the new map aside from the fact that it will be a completely reimagined version of it. They did show off some concept art, which shows off a war-torn piece of the island itself.

No specific release date was given for the update, though there was talk of several other big pieces of content coming to Battlefield 5 in the months leading up to it. Most notably was Operation Underground, a new map inspired by the original Operation Metro from Battlefield 3. Players will also see a update to the max rank, bringing it from 50 to 500, giving you plenty of room to level up and progress.
