Battlefield V Pacific War Update Coming Next Week (VIDEO)
After almost an entire year, Battlefield V is finally getting new factions in its next free update. The battlefield is moving to the Pacific where Japanese and American forces will face off on Iwo Jima and Wake Island.
EA and Dice have thus far ignored the fact that WWII was fought all over the world between many nations. Despite having a ton of potential in locations, factions, weapons, and vehicles, the developers of Battlefield V were content to keep the fighting between British and German forces. Until now.
New American and Japanese weapons will be included like the M1 Garand rifle and Katana. Carrier-based aircraft and amphibious assault craft should also add an interesting dynamic to the multiplayer battles. New maps like Pacific Storm will pit opposing forces against each other in land, sea, and air combat for control of a remote archipelago. Wake Island from Battlefield 1942 is making a comeback as well.
Though it’s clear Battlefield V was not on the top of EA’s priority list, it’s nice to see them showing this shooter and the people who play it a little love with some fresh content. The best part about the update is it’s free! No need to pay for the blood-soaked atolls of the Pacific theatre.
Chapter V: War in the Pacific arrives on Oct 31 for Battlefield V.
Will you be playing War in the Pacific for Battlefield V? Do you think EA will add new factions and weapons in the future (fingers crossed for an Eastern Front chapter, Soviets v.s. Germans in Stalingrad!) or is EA moving on after this?
