In the press release, DICE has also shared a few tips on surviving and winning in Wake Island.
In Breakthrough, attackers get tanks in the first sector, defenders don’t. If you’re attacking, take advantage of this. Also, if you spot defenders hiding in the Hotel, take it down! Defenders can build Fortifications to counter this.
Attackers can find ways to destroy the Hangar as well. Defenders should set up tank traps as soon as possible to stop the tanks from moving into the Hangar.
Some of the bunkers can be destroyed, some cannot. Defenders can use the tunnels leading to the bunkers to their advantage by creating a choke point.
The last sector is the prime target for calling in artillery or rocket Reinforcements. Use them.
Do not underestimate the small boats! They are fast, nimble, and perfect for flanking.
Chances are, this new map won’t require a download to be made available, and will be triggered via server-side. We’ll let our readers know once it’s playable.
