As part of EA's "Road To Battlefield 1" campaign, the company is giving away DLC for its newest Battlefield games, and now, it looks like the next offering has been revealed. Reddit user Trentandmike spotted a listing that shows Battlefield 4's Final Stand expansion will be free starting on Wednesday, May 18 (via DualShockers).

The listing was for Xbox One, but EA said when announcing the free DLC campaign that content would be offered across Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC.

Final Stand includes four maps (Operation Whiteout, Hammerhead, Hangar 21, and Giants of Karelia), all of which take place in wintry environments. There are also near-future weapons and gadgets such as a DS-3 DECOY gun attachment that emits false blips on enemies' mini-maps and the XD-1 Accipiter, a remote-controlled, LMG-equipped drone.

The content, which came out at the end of 2014, normally sells for $15 on its own. It's also included in the $50 Battlefield 4 Premium pass.

Battlefield 4's Dragon's Teeth expansion was free May 3-10, while Battlefield Hardline's Robbery expansion was also free during that week. We'll bring you more details on the forthcoming Final Stand freebie offer, and whatever else gets announced, as new information becomes available.

Battlefield 1, which is set in World War 1, is scheduled to come out in October for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. For more, check out GameSpot's recent interview: "It's Not Worth Stepping on People's Memories."

@rosinmonkekyx17: It's old DLC. They are just making it free for everyone now to hype up Battlefield 1

@moose-fitz: Technically, it's not free for everyone, only for people with a gold subscription, which I find to be very strange since it doesn't require PS+ on Playstation.

@moose-fitz: Exactly, the only reason they are giving this DLC for free, XD. Clear their image to get more people to buy BF1.
