After already having briefly detailed the roadmap for Battlefield 5’s post-launch content through Tides of War over the next few months, DICE have now dropped more specific details about Chapter 1, called Overture. In an update on Reddit, DICE’s global community manager Dan Mitre confirmed that the first Tides of War chapter will be going live for all platforms on December 4.
Overture will bring a new War Story, the German-focused “The Last Tiger” (which will also be the last War Story for Battlefield 5). A new map called Panzerstorm is also part of chapter 1 of Tides of War, as is the firing range mode, called Practice Range. In addition to that, vehicle cosmetic customization, which wasn’t included at launch, will be added to the game as part of Overture. It’s also been confirmed that limited-time assignments and progression elements tied to Overture will be going live two days later on December 6.
Battlefield 5 is currently available on PS4, Xbox One, and PC for all those who pre-ordered the game’s Deluxe Edition (and for Origin Access Premier subscribers on PC). The game’s full global launch is two days from now, on November 20. Make sure you read our review of the game to find out what we thought of it.
