The Battlefield Franchise Portal has details on Operation Blue Pearl, a new map to be included in future patches for both Battlefield 2 and Battlefield 2142. The article gives insight into their design principles, as they must use fog to limit draw distances to serve lower-spec machines, even though many gamers have more powerful machines than were available when each installment in the military shooter series was released. They also describe efforts at making use of some less-familiar elements as they re-use objects from the original games. They also explain the purpose of a new map: "We here at DICE also felt that BF2 lacked a map with a beach landing scenario – like 'Omaha Beach' in BF 1942. That’s why we’ve made this map into a beach landing and hopefully you guys will enjoy that experience." They say they are eager for feedback from beta testing, but do not specify when testing will begin.
