To be fair it's actually quite unusual with the inclusion of vehicles. I quite enjoyed a brief blast last night.

Chapter 3: Trial by Fire.

A new Chapter for Battlefield™ V* is imminent – and this one’s flaming hot. Whether you’re new to Battlefield V or a skilled veteran, Chapter 3: Trial by Fire is bringing plenty to be excited about – hence this first article in a series detailing how it will evolve the battlefield. With that, let's go through the most frequently asked Trial by Fire questions and see what the Chapter’s first weeks will entail.

What is Chapter 3: Trial by Fire?
Continuing the evolution of Battlefield V, Trial by Fire is the third Chapter of the game. Delivered as free updates to Battlefield V owners, Chapters bring several new ways to experience the game, through maps, modes, missions, and more – some exclusive to the duration of the Chapter, some permanent.

When does it take place?
Chapter 3: Trial by Fire starts on March 28 and will be active for 12 weeks. Firestorm – battle royale, reimagined for Battlefield – will, however, be playable earlier, on March 25. Check in to Battlefield V regularly during Chapter 3: Trial by Fire, as we’ll add challenges and rewards on a weekly basis.

What new content and features are in Chapter 3?
In a nutshell: the climactic battle royale of Firestorm, the stunning Mercury map portraying the Battle of Greece, more co-op in a Combined Arms update, the strategic Outpost mode, and even more. That’s a lot. Let’s break it down.

What is Firestorm?
Free for all Battlefield V players, Firestorm lets you fight, scavenge, and survive as a deadly ring of fire encloses the largest Battlefield map ever. As mentioned, this is battle royale, reimagined for Battlefield. That means objectives to capture, combat vehicles to pilot, and Reinforcements to call in as you fight to become the last squad or soldier standing. If you want to learn more about all the different aspects of Firestorm, the Firestorm web page is a great start.

What’s Combined Arms and what new updates are coming to it?
Combined Arms is the Battlefield V co-op experience, where you can improve your skills before taking on multiplayer by squading up and fighting AI troops. As Combined Arms gets updated in April, you’ll get to enjoy matchmaking, two Fjell 652 map missions, and a Hardcore mode.

What can you tell me about the Mercury map?
When this Battle of Greece map arrives in May, you’ll experience unexplored fronts as the fight moves to the Mediterranean. Here, you'll take on a massive invasion along the Cretan coast, based on the real-life events of Operation Mercury. The Battle of Greece will continue with another new map coming in Chapter 4.

What is Outpost mode?
Spread the word and find new recruits in this multiplayer mode, coming in June. In Outpost, you’ll build and secure objectives to ensure your team assembles enough soldiers and resources to endure through the fight. We’re still putting final touches to Outpost, and we’ll have more intel to share soon.

Any other game modes coming?
Squad Conquest, a multiplayer experience we introduced during Chapter 2: Lightning Strikes is coming back for a limited time during Chapter 3: Trial by Fire. In this fast-paced, 8-versus-8 take on Conquest, two pairs of opposing squads compete to strategically capture and hold flags until they exhaust the enemy team of their Respawn Tickets.

What are mode variants?
During Tides of War, we're adding twists on existing multiplayer modes based on new ideas and community wishes. The idea is to test introduce these mode variants for a limited time and, potentially, bring them back if they're popular. For example, the first mode variant you'll see in Chapter 3: Trial by Fire is Grind - a tight, close-quarter take on Conquest. Here, we've reduced the playing field and number of flags on the Twisted Steel, Devastation, Rotterdam, and Narvik maps to create high-intensity infantry areas - meat grinders if you will - to cater for a certain play style. Fans of Battlefield 3's Operation Metro and Battlefield 1's Fort de Vaux will love this one.

What are the competitive system requirements?
As Firestorm approaches, Nvidia has recommended competitive specs for PC configurations that meet the needs of performance gaming with high refresh monitors. For players on high-end PCs, these specs will provide an idea of what it will take to get the best performance levels from their rigs.
Battlefield V Competitive System Requirements
OS: 64-bit Windows 10 or later
Processor (AMD): AMD Ryzen 7 2700 or equivalent
Processor (Intel): Intel Core i7 8700 or equivalent
Memory: 16GB RAM
Graphics card (NVIDIA): NVIDIA GeForce® RTX 2070
Online Connection Requirements: 512 KBPS or faster Internet connection
Available Disk Space: 50GB
You can read more about minimum, recommended, and DXR-related specs on our PC system requirements page.

What are the Weekly Challenges in Chapter 3?
There will be 12 Weekly Challenges in Chapter 3: Trial by Fire. Each week, you’ll have the opportunity to unlock awesome weapons, skins, and other items by completing tasks on the battlefield. Gear like the Commando Carbine, the Firestorm Fire Axe melee weapon, and more is waiting for you – find a detailed list of the first six weeks, their tasks, and their rewards on the Chapter 3 page.

Are you changing the structure of the Weekly Challenges?
Yes, in two ways. First, to make things clearer, we’re moving away from the concept of Chapter Events to instead focus solely on weeks and Weekly Challenges. Second, some Weekly Challenges will feature a bonus task available after completing the final task and unlocking the reward. This extra exercise challenges you to use your newly acquired reward. For instance: in Chapter 3, Week 4, you’ll unlock the Commando Carbine at the end of the Weekly Challenge. You can then take your carbine out for a spin in the bonus task Silent Death, where you need to score five kills with it.

What is Chapter Rank and how do I earn it?
Chapter Rank is a special rank which shows how active you’ve been in the current Chapter. It’s only available during the active Chapter and can be earned by simply playing the game. (Pro tip: completing Weekly Challenges will earn you a big chunk of Chapter XP, which will speed up the Chapter Rank climbing). For Chapter 3: Trial by Fire, there are 40 ranks.

What rewards do I get for earning Chapter Rank in Chapter 3: Trial by Fire?
You’ll earn a reward for each time you rank up. Here’s a complete list of the Chapter 3 rewards:

What happened with the Soldier Dragging feature?
Having discovered that soldier dragging would negatively impact the core gameplay loop, we’ve decided to not add the feature to Battlefield V. To make soldier dragging look and play well, complex and long animations are necessary. This would make reviving feel slow and unresponsive, which would affect the pacing of Battlefield V’s gameplay.
We’ll continue to explore ways to improve Battlefield V, but in doing so we have to ensure that the core elements, the essence, if you will, of the game remain unaffected. It’s been great reading the discussions on this subject and your feedback continues to play a part in all our decisions.

I tend to agree. I was thinking earlier I’m glad I only got the deluxe version although I’m still not convinced what benefits it has over the standard.

Bf has been changed beyond recognition in order to take market share and compete directly with cod. We all saw it coming. We knew when it was ported to console. We we more sure of it when it was made for console and ported to pc. If you're not certain now then I don't think you've considered it deeply. Fuck the franchise. Leave it to the kids. It will kill itself, and hopefully in a few years someone will remember what a great player base it once had and faithfully restore it with a new old version.
Easy now.
