Battlefield V comes on PS4, Xbox One and PC in less than a month and offers a variety of different modes players can immerse themselves in from the beginning. That certainly will not be the extent of the content it's getting; Developer EA DICE will release regular updates for the shooter as part of their live service "Tides of War", and now we have a much better idea of what that will mean.
DICE has outlined its post-launch roadmap for Battlefield V on the game's official website. Unlike Battlefield 1, where players initially had to buy a premium pass to get their upgrades, all future maps, modes, and other content for Battlefield V are free for all players.
The first "chapter" of this post The release title, called Overture, is scheduled for release in December, about two weeks after the game starts. It will feature the tank-focused Panzerstorm map and another war story titled The Last Tiger. In addition, DICE will implement the vehicle customization and the first iteration of the game's series of exercises as well as weekly events.
The second chapter of Tides of War, Lightning Strikes, will be out in January. March. It adds Co-operative Combined Arms mode, in which you and up to three other players on multiple cards perform Combat Strike missions. In addition, Lightning Strikes brings the new Squad Conquest mode, a revised rush mode and a range of weekly events and rewards into play.
The third chapter of DICE's post-launch content is called Trial by Fire and is scheduled to launch in March. The biggest expansion of the game is Firestorm, Battlefield Vs Battle Royale style mode. It supports up to 64 players split into teams of four. As with other Battle Royale games, they are placed on a slow-shrinking card to be the last remaining team. Trial by Fire also adds a new map of Greece and more weekly events and rewards.
DICE is annoyed that there are more new maps, weapons, vehicles and other content on the way; Details will be announced later. Battlefield V launches on November 20 for PS4, Xbox One and PC. Those who pick it up within the first week will receive two free bonus items in the game. Those who have an EA Access subscription can play for up to nine hours in the early morning of November 9th.
