Battlefield 5: How Realistic is Rotterdam?
25 September, 2018

Is the upcoming Battlefield 5 realistic enough? We won’t talk about women and black characters, but let’s discuss the game’s maps. 

Travel blog writer Zoe shared several photos and screenshots comparing the game and real-life Rotterdam. The similarities here turned to be remarkable. Just look at the Rotterdam’s Erasmus statue to understand how much time DICE spent studying the Dutch city.

Make sure to read Zoe’s article to learn more about the stories of the city and how they made it into the game. You learn about one church’s beautiful stained glass “removed before the bombings to prevent damage,” and eventually re-installed after the war, for example.

There’s also the Witte Huis which was the first high-rise building to be constructed in Europe, becoming a useful sniper point for the Dutch army during the Battle for Rotterdam.

 “I think it is impressive of DICE to have made the map so realistic,” Zoe told Eurogamer. “The features of the map make it very recognisable and brings to life the ‘old Rotterdam’ from before it was bombed.”

Make sure to check out Zoe’s amazing blog post for more details.
