Battlefield 5's Second Free DLC, Lightning Strikes, Available Now
Chapter 2 of Tides of War is about to begin.
Battlefield V's second free DLC expansion is almost here. Developer DICE is rolling out the first wave of Chapter 2: Lightning Strikes on PS4, Xbox One, and PC this Tuesday, January 15, bringing new modes, weapons, and other content to the World War II shooter. [Update: Battlefield V's Chapter 2: Lightning Strikes update is now live on all platforms.]
First, the update will introduce Squad Conquest, which DICE describes as "an intense version of Conquest that enables more tactical gameplay." In this mode, two teams of eight players--each of which is further divided up into two four-person squads--can do battle on "smaller, more tactical" versions of the Arras, Rotterdam, and Hamada maps.
On top of that, DICE is adding four new weapons to the game. These can be unlocked by completing Weekly Challenges in January and February. The four weapons are as follows:
- Zk-383 SMG (Medic class)
- Modele 1944 semi-automatic rifle (Assault class)
- M1922 MMG (Support class)
- Mk. III bolt-action rifle (Recon class)
Finally, DICE is implementing a handful of improvements to Time to Death and Death Experience in this week's update. Among other things, the developer has added a camera that zooms in on and follows players who have killed you. You can find the full patch notes for the update on the Battlefield website.
