Battlefield five is going back to the Pacific in its subsequent free of charge update.
Regardless of charging by way of Globe War two for practically a year, an whole ocean of conflict has been largely ignored by Battlefield five. That is all set to transform in the subsequent huge free of charge update for Dice’s period shooter.
Announced currently, Chapter V: War in the Pacific will ultimately bring the far-Eastern front into the mix later this month.
War in the Pacific pits the US Armed Forces against the Imperial Japanese Army across two new maps. The rocky fortress island of Iwo Jima will have you sprinting amongst wide-open beaches and claustrophobic tunnel encounters. Pacific Storm, meanwhile, is substantially sunnier than the name lets on. Teams will take manage of the skies and seas to go island hopping for manage of the archipelago.
There’s 1 far more addition, and it is a huge kick in the nostalgia. Wake Island is coming back. The Pacific Ocean’s favourite horseshoe will not arrive with the rest of War in the Pacific this month, alternatively dropping later this December. We’ve constantly got the old Battlefield 1942 demo ’til then.
Chapter V also brings the Sherman tank and F4U Corsair plane into Battlefield’s vehicular sandbox. But for these of us stuck on foot, you can also now choose up a flamethrower and set fire to the ocean. Failing that, the Japanese can start out slicing yanks up with a Katana.
The free of charge update also brings the usual host of new weapons (each handheld and stationary) and new rewards to plug towards. Far more information on these, and all of the above, can be discovered on the War in the Pacific official web page right here.
That is all nicely and excellent if you are a Battlefield veteran. But to enlist far more bodies for the war, Dice is kicking off free of charge weekend events more than the subsequent two weeks. From October 24th to 28th, you will be in a position to attempt out Battlefield 5’s Grand Operations. War in the Pacific will go on trial the following weekend, opening the sea to new recruits from November 1st by way of 4th.
Chapter V: War in the Pacific arrives on October 31st.
