While DICE faces criticism on one end for a lack of substantial content in Star Wars Battlefront, another of its games is facing no such issues. Battlefront 4 continues to roll on strong and has gone live with its latest update, Legacy Operations.

Legacy Operations brings back the classic Dragon Valley map from Battlefield 2, reimagining it with additional features centered to fit Battlefield 4's aesthetic. It's being billed as one of the largest maps in the game, offering up land, air, and sea combat, along with five different bridges just aching for total destruction. Of course, like in BF2, those bridges can also be repaired at any time. Dragon Valley 2015 will be open to all game modes.

For more on Dragon Valley 2015, as well as the latest batch of fixes and balance tweaks, check out DICE's lengthy patch notes. The Legacy Operations update is free to all Battlefield 4 owners on all platforms. Credit to Chatty's ant_hillbilly for the tip.

Ozzie has been playing video games since picking up his first NES controller at age 5. He has been into games ever since, only briefly stepping away during his college years. But he was pulled back in after spending years in QA circles for both THQ and Activision, mostly spending time helping to push forward the Guitar Hero series at its peak. Ozzie has become a big fan of platformers, puzzle games, shooters, and RPGs, just to name a few genres, but he’s also a huge sucker for anything with a good, compelling narrative behind it. Because what are video games if you can't enjoy a good story with a fresh Cherry Coke?

            It wasn't my favorite map in that game and I generally disliked it with 64 players because it took forever and seemed to be mostly about jets and helis destroying everybody, but I really like it in small conquest. So we will see how these changes to it affect the map.

            A Karkand BF3 made clear to me, all the new mechanics in BF games radically alter the way classic maps play.

      I don't think it's available on PS3 or Xbox 360, so not all platforms.
