Battlefield V's Tides of War means new story content will arrive in the game "every few months," and that Battlefield V will launch with just two factions - the British, and the Germans. In perhaps the game’s most historically-accurate statement yet, DICE revealed that American soldiers would not be playable at the beginning of the war.
In a series of blog posts, DICE have been discussing how your band of soldiers will evolve over time and as the war progresses. As mentioned above, the game will launch with just two factions. While the UK and Germany were clearly pretty major players in the war, the decision to leave out French, Italian, and Russian soldiers at this point is surprising.
Battlefield and COD are the biggest, but which are the best FPS games?
The most recent blog post also details Tides of War - DICE’s ongoing solution to prevent premium content from separating the community. Tides of War “will be an evolving journey featuring a new narrative every few months,” that will allow the developers to grow the game’s world over time. Every few months, new story will be released, with each chapter focusing on a “particular aspect of the era.”
Tides of War will begin with the Fall of Europe, and operations will span several months of new missions and timed events. As new chapters are released, more factions will be released, but there is no current roadmap for those releases.
