Battlefield V comes on PS4, Xbox One and PC in less than a month, and it will offer a variety of modes for players to dive in right from the start. It will certainly not be the extent of content it will receive, however; Developer EA DICE will roll out a regular stream of shooter updates as part of its Tides of War live service and now we have a much better idea of what it will bring.
DICE has outlined its post-launch roadmap for Battlefield V on the game’s official website. Unlike Battlefield 1, which initially required players to purchase a Premium Pass to get their extensions, any future maps, locations and other content for Battlefield V will be free to all players.
The first chapter of this post-relay content, duplicate Overture, is slated to arrive in December, about two weeks after the game launch. It will introduce the tank-focused Panzerstorm map and a further war story titled The Last Tiger. In addition, DICE will carry out car customization and the first iteration of the game’s Practice Range, as well as weekly events.
The second chapter of Tides of War, Lightning Strikes, will launch January-March. It adds the Combined Arms mode, where you and up to three other players take Combat Strike missions on multiple maps. Additionally, Lightning Strikes provides the new Squad Conquest mode, an upgraded Rush mode and another assortment of weekly events and rewards to the game.
The third chapter of DICE after launch content is called Trial by Fire, and it is scheduled to kick in March. The biggest addition to the game is Firestorm, Battlefield V’s game royale mode. It supports up to 64 players divided into four teams, and as other combat royal games, kisses them on a gradual shrinking map in a match to be the last team left. Trial by Fire will also add a new Greece map and more weekly events and rewards.
DICE argues that more new maps, weapons, vehicles and other content are also on its way. Details about them will be revealed later. Battlefield V launches for PS4, Xbox One and PC on November 20th. Those who pick it up within the first week get two free bonus points in the game. Those who have an EA Access subscription can also play up to 10 hours of the game early early November 9th.
