New Map: Caen


Following the Invasion of Normandy, the Allies recognized the city of Caen as an important junction for several roads and railways. The city was a vital objective to keep for both the Allies and Axis, and led to the Battle of Caen in 1944.

This console exclusive map is based on this famous battle site. Caen took over five months to create, and combines an urban French city with rolling green hills, a central bridge, and lots of hiding spots!
