Battlefield V’s War In The Pacific expansion has gotten a fantastic new trailer. The new expansion will launch for free on October 31, bringing the war to the Pacific Theater once again, and series veterans will be pleased to see that we will be returning to Wake Island for even more bloodshed.
Invade the most iconic battlefields of the Pacific theater as U.S. and Japanese forces enter the fray in Battlefield V’s War in the Pacific. Available as a free update to Battlefield V on October 31: http://x.ea.com/60890 Fight on land, air, and sea on maps including Pacific Storm and modern takes on two absolute classic maps: Iwo Jima and, coming in December, Wake Island.
Wake Island is a classic map in the series and has appeared in many different versions of the game at this point. The expansion will introduce American and Japanese forces to the game and new maps, including Iwo Jima and Wake Island, although Wake Island won’t arrive until December.
There will be additional weapons, vehicles, and gear to use, including Sherman tanks and Katanas for melee attacks. The new weapons include the Type 99 Arisaka, the Type 100 SMG, and the powerful M19 19A6 machine gun.
There will also be a new Battle Pickups, the M2 Flamethrower, and the previously mentioned Katana. Both will give players powerful means to take the fight to their foes. The Sherman tank will be going up against the Japanese Type 97, as they battle for position alongside the infantry.
War In The Pacific looks fantastic, and as always, the DICE trailer team has done a stellar job in bringing the theater of war to a vivid, terrifying life. Will you be putting boots on the ground on October 31?
