EA and Dice have revealed the full size of Firestorm's Halvoy map. According to the official Battlefield V Twitter, battle royale arena Halvoy is ten times bigger than Hamada, which is, at the moment, the biggest map in the WW2 shooter.

Battlefield V's much-anticipated battle royale mode named Firestorm is finally dropping next week, and EA and Dice have offered some details about its snowy map, named Halvoy. In the official reveal trailer, we got to see some of the locations on the map, and Dice earlier confirmed that the map is set in the Scandinavian region. 

However, they didn't talk much about the map size, but in the latest series of tweets from official Battlefield V Twitter, a couple of details about the battle royale arena size have been revealed.

As expected, Halvoy is pretty huge when compared to other Battlefield V maps, and it's ten times bigger than Hamada map, which is, at the moment, the biggest map in Battlefield V. As you can see in the picture below, Hamada only fits into a fraction of Halvoy.

We also got a full layout of the Firestorm map and as seen in the picture, the giant lake in the middle splits the map into two parts - one of them is mainly covered by the snow while the western part offers a lot more vegetation.

It's safe to say that vehicles will have a big part in Firestorm, especially with the fire ring which looked pretty devastating in the reveal trailer.

Battlefield V's Firestorm will support up to 64 players in 16 squads at launch. A recent leak revealed that Solos and Duos could get introduced in the future, but at the moment, only Squad mode is officially confirmed.

Firestorm matches will also have several types of objectives. These will operate similarly to those found in the regular Conquest mode, except some will be found at fixed locations and some at random, with varying types of supplies, weapons, and vehicles. 

Battlefield V Firestorm is scheduled to arrive on 25 March 2019 as a free content update.
