Developer DICE is continuing down the Road to Battlefield V by giving away even more expansions for Battlefield 1 and Battlefield 4.
Starting today, PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One players can download Battlefield 1‘s Turning Tides expansion and Battlefield 4‘s Second Assault for free until June 30th.
Turning Tides introduced larger-scale naval combat to Battlefield 1 when it launched back in November 2017. Players who download Turning Tides will gain access to four new maps, a ton of new weapons, and new vehicles like the L-Class destroyer and the C-Class airship.
Second Assault updated four classic Battlefield 3 maps—Metro, Operation Firestorm, Caspian Border, and Gulf of Oman—for the then-new Frostbite 3 engine in Battlefield 4. Players who download Second Assault will also be treated to five new weapons and a hit-or-miss Capture the Flag mode.
Today also marks the beginning of the Road to Battlefield V‘s second stage. As with the first stage, for the next five weeks players can complete point-based and objective-based challenges in either Battlefield 1 or Battlefield 4 to unlock new weapon skins, squad XP boosts, melee weapons, and a dog tag in Battlefield 1, as well as a weapon skin for Battlefield V.
Right now, every reward beyond week 1 is still blurred out on the in-game Road to Battlefield V screen, but the Battlefield V skin players can unlock in week 3 might confirm a new weapon—specifically, what looks to be a new bolt-action rifle—for the upcoming WWII shooter. Stage 1 revealed that the Lewis Gun would be returning to Battlefield V, so it will be interesting to see if yet another Battlefield 1 weapon will make the cut for the next Battlefield game.
One thing that DICE has still yet to announce is when Battlefield 1‘s June 2018 update is rolling out. The update will mark the last monthly content update for the World War I shooter and will introduce a new game mode, Shock Operations, which is a single-map, 40-player version of Operations that resembles Breakthrough mode in Battlefield V. DICE LA engineer Julian Manolov stated on Twitter (via Battlefield Bulletin) that the update is still waiting on first-party certification from Microsoft and Sony before it can roll out, so hopefully that will happen in the next day or so.
Battlefield 1 is available on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
