Battlefield V Announces Chapter 2: Lightning Strikes Update Details
I am curious to see the new stuff in action.
Battlefield V begins 2019 with a blast of new content in the Chapter 2: Lightning Strikes update, going live tomorrow, January 15. You can find all the details on Chapter 2 in today’s new blog post, along with the new trailer, here. As a reminder, all DLC and additional content that comes to Battlefield V is free to all players as part of Tides of War.
Kicking off tomorrow is Squad Conquest, a tighter and more intense version of Conquest that enables more tactical gameplay between two teams of 16 players on the Arras, Rotterdam and Hamada maps. Launching alongside Squad Conquest are four new weapons, which can be unlocked through Weekly Challenges, including:
Zk-383 SMG (Medic class)
Modele 1944 semi-automatic rifle (Assault class)
M1922 MMG (Support class)
Mk. III bolt-action rifle (Recon class)
A new Grand Operation, called Battle of Hannut, will deploy in Chapter 2. Set in the French and Belgian countryside, players will give it their all in Airborne, Breakthrough, and – for the first time in a Grand Operation – Rush mode. Time to Death and Death Experience fixes have been updated following community feedback in those areas. Combined Arms, a co-op experience, will be launching with Chapter 2 in February. In the first Combined Arms endeavor, players will attempt a surgical strike on a single objective in eight missions. Players can also look forward to the return of Rush mode exclusively for a limited time in March. In Rush mode, the objective depends on whether you’re on the attacking or defending side. The mode will be available on the maps Twisted Steel, Narvik, and Devastation. Other content, like the Tank Hunter vehicles, will be added to Battlefield V in later updates throughout Lightning Strikes.
