DICE is taking a very different approach to delivering downloadable content to players in Battlefield V. While it was announced that there would be no Premium Pass for the game, today they’ve elaborated on just what that means.
They’re calling their new content delivery system as “Tides of War” and they say it’s the answer to the community fragmentation that paid expansion packs create. With Tides of War, DICE says they will continue to grow the world of Battlefield V every few months.
“Tides of War will be an evolving journey featuring a new narrative every few months. Each chapter of Tides of War will focus on a particular aspect of the era, with unique gameplay experiences to drive players forward. We will use content, soldiers, visuals, and narrative to immerse our players deeper into the gameplay.”
Tides of War will give players a chance to compete in timed events to unlock new gear and customization options like dog tags, emblems, face pain, soldier skins, and weapon skins. The timed events can include things like multi-week Grand Operations, Special Assignments, and new Missions.
