Battlefield V gets new campaign, map, practice range, and vehicle customization soon (update)

Updated December 3, 2018: Tomorrow's Battlefield V update has been delayed to December 5 due to an unforeseen issue.

Battlefield V is a first-person shooter set in World War II. The game features single-player campaign scenarios similar to Battlefield 1, alongside an expansive multiplayer mode. The title launched a few days ago on November 20, 2018. Battlefield V has no premium pass or paid expansions so players won't be divided anymore.

On December 4, the game is getting an update called "Chapter 1: Overture." The download brings a new map, an untold mini-campaign, and rich rewards as you progress through different challenges. The campaign, called "The Last Tiger," lets you join the German crew of a Tiger I tank, operating a near-indestructible vehicle in a losing battle on the country's borders.

According to EA, Chapter 1 also brings the "Panzerstorm" map to Battlefield V multiplayer. Players clash in steel vehicles of World War II on the Belgian countryside's rolling hills. The chapter also adds a practice range and vehicle customization. Unlike Battlefield 1, it seems like the focus here is to merge all forms of gameplay — foot, vehicular, and aerial — into every map.

Battlefield V was supposed to launch earlier this year, but was delayed to November a few months ago. The beta test was quite rough around the edges, especially when it came to performance on Xbox One. Even the Xbox One X performance wasn't that great. However, it seems like the full release has come a long way and even targets 4K 60 FPS on Microsoft's new machine.

  • Who the heck cares
  • I sure don't! 👎👎
  • I've played and enjoyed every BF game up until BF1 and I preordered BF V but still haven't even played it once. I was really disappointed by the two betas and (like most people) I've been too immersed in RDR2 to even bother loading up BF V. Sorry Dice, maybe next time make a better game.
  • So how do you know this isn't a good game if you haven't played? Just curious.
    If the betas are the only thing you are going by then you aren't making a knowledgeable statement.
  • I've been playing BattleField since 1942 and BFV was a giant f you to veterans IMO. I will not support their political agenda.
  • Are you talking about there being women in there? Cause if you cared at all to research the history other nations had women in the actual war. The russians had dedicated sniper teams that were all women the british had female spies...
    Go do your research before you make any more stupid comments please
