The Road to Battlefield V Starts with Free Expansions and In-game Rewards by Xbox Wire
At DICE, it’s currently all hands-on deck for the launch of Battlefield V on October 19. However, we’re not forgetting our Battlefield veterans and have planned ongoing giveaways as well as plenty of award opportunities this summer for our current players.
We’ve called all the above the Road to Battlefield V. The road’s foundation is built on opportunities to grab expansions from both Battlefield 1 and Battlefield 4. Battlefield 1 players can also earn gear for later use in Battlefield V, such as exclusive paratrooper gear and weapon skins.
More than 20 maps worth of free content
The anticipation for Battlefield V is real. In the meantime, why not grab each expansion from both Battlefield 1 and Battlefield 4 for free? You’ll have to watch our calendar to ensure you’re ready to pick them up them when they arrive.
Some players have already claimed Battlefield 1 In the Name of the Tsar with its six massive maps and ability to join the ranks of the largest mobilized army to enter World War I. Others have jumped at the opportunity fight in a British amphibious assault using a powerful torpedo boat and airship in Battlefield 1 Turning Tides. And before the end of July, two of the most infamous battles of WWI will be free with the giveaway of Battlefield 1 Apocalypse.
If you missed the previous expansion giveaways, don’t bang your head against a tank – you may still get the chance to claim them again in the future.
Weekly rewards and the best place to earn them
There are also more opportunities to make the battlefield your own with weekly in-game rewards just for playing Battlefield 1. When logging into Battlefield 1, a new menu lists daily tasks that go toward earning various rewards, like weapon and equipment skins, dog tags, and squad XP boosts. The available rewards unlock weekly and can be earned during that window. Missed a week? Don’t worry, you can still catch up by playing!
We’ve even added tailor-made map playlists on that rotate every Tuesday. Consider these a tour through the variety of Battlefield 1 maps and modes as well as a great place to complete those daily and weekly challenges.
Get Battlefield V gear now
Those Battlefield 1 in-game rewards also include periodic, exclusive vanity items for Battlefield V, available for use in that game at launch. Battlefield V will let players customize their own company of soldiers with special soldier sets containing weapon skins, camo patterns, head gear, and face paint for the British Special Air Service (SAS) and German Airborne troops. There are eight available before launch. You can grab six of these when you pre-order the Battlefield V Deluxe Edition, but the only way to earn the additional two soldier sets is via the Road to Battlefield V.
Join the fight in Battlefield V on Xbox One starting October 11 with the EA Access Play First Trial, October 16 for Battlefield V Deluxe Edition early enlister access, and October 19 for the Battlefield V Standard Edition.
