In a new post detailing the post-launch Battlefield V roadmap that will introduce free content coming for all players, we've got confirmation that the upcoming Battle Royale-inspired mode Firestorm is set to drop March 2019. This follows the addition of a new single-player War Story called The Last Tiger and a co-op mode called Combined Arms, in what looks to be a steady stream of new stuff.
Called Tides of War and split into different Chapters, each new addition will expand and grow the Battlefield V experience.
CHAPTER 1: OVERTURE (EARLY DECEMBER – JANUARY)
Roughly two weeks after Battlefield V’s release, we kick off Tides of War and its first chapter.
Chapter 1: Overture brings the Panzerstorm map, where the German mechanized war machine plunges into Belgium, smashing into Allied defensive forces. On this tank-focused arena, you’ll roll across ridges, ditches, and elevated roads with a massive force of armor, carving a path of destruction through the countryside.
The first chapter also lets you take on an addition to our single-player War Stories: The Last Tiger. In it, a lone Tiger Tank crew begins to question the ideology that got them to this point.
CHAPTER 2: LIGHTNING STRIKES (JANUARY – MARCH)
With Lightning Strikes arriving early next year, the Tides of War continue – this time with a focus on vehicle warfare and rapid infantry movement. The chapter brings to life the fear created by the Axis war machine through original content and challenges built around vehicle play.
Combined Arms: Join forces with up to three friends and take on the co-op experience of Combined Arms. In a series of Combat Strike missions across several maps, you and your squad will fight against AI components in various challenges.
CHAPTER 3: TRIAL BY FIRE (STARTING IN MARCH)
Battle Royale comes to Battlefield with Firestorm and the war reaches Greece as the third Tides of War chapter is unleashed in the Spring.
Firestorm: During spring, DICE and Criterion start the fire with Battlefield V’s battle royale experience. Firestorm elevates the mode by bringing in the best of what Battlefield is known for. Mix a shrinking playing field with trademark Battlefield elements such as team play, powerful vehicles, and destruction, and you get many unique Battlefield moments coming your way.
Each Chapter is also set to bring new maps and modes and feature with Chapter 1 introducing vehicle customisation and a Practice Range. Battlefield V launches November 20 for PC, Xbox One, and PS4 with early access available for premium editions and subscribers to Origin Access Premier.
