According to the game’s updated DLC roadmap, Chapter 5 will include three new maps (including a modern take on Iwo Jima) and at least seven fresh weapons and gadgets before the end of the year.
It will also introduce new factions (the US and Japan) and vehicles, including boats.
DICE has confirmed plans to raise Battlefield V’s maximum rank from 50 to 500 too.
Chapter 5 will arrive following the conclusion of the game’s upcoming season of content, the recently detailed Chapter 4: Defying the Odds, which kicks off on June 27 with the release of a new 64-player map set in the North African desert.
Additionally, EA has today made Battlefield V available to EA Access and Origin Access subscribers, on Xbox One and PC respectively. It’ll be available on PS4 when EA Access launches on Sony’s console next month.
Today’s Battlefield V news was announced at the EA Play 2019 event, which was also used to show off the first Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order gameplay, announce FIFA 20 details, and share information about the second season of Apex Legends.
