Battlefield V Talks About Audio, Offers Free Battlefield 1 DLC

By Rebecca Smith, 3 months ago
With less than a month to go until release, the Road to Battlefield V is getting shorter but no less generous. Not only has the team released a new developer diary, they're also offering two Battlefield 1 DLC expansions for free to all players until tomorrow, before offering the Premium Pass for free for an entire week.

In the developer diary, the game's UX Designer Nathalie Ek is joined by Lead Sound Designer Andreas Almström and Senior Audio Director Bence Pajor as they talk about the audio in the game. Across the video's 14 minutes, they explain how the team has created an immersive soundtrack and battle effects, what the team was aiming to achieve, and how they replicated the sounds of the weapons and the infamous V-1 rocket.

If you're one of those people trying to squeeze as much as they can out of Battlefield 1 before the community moves on to the next title, you may be interested in the free DLC giveaways over the next few days. Up until tomorrow, October 23rd, players can get the "Turning Tides" and "Apocalypse" expansions for free. If you miss out on that offer, between October 24th and October 31st, the game's Premium Pass will also be given away. The pass does, of course, offer access to all four of the game's expansion packs, including "They Shall Not Pass" and "In the Name of the Tsar" alongside the two just mentioned, as well as 14 Battlefield 1 Superior Battlepacks, 14 unique dog tags and priority position in server queues. You can see what to expect from the two DLC packs that are currently free in the trailer below.

Battlefield V will be released on November 20th. Don't forget to pick up the free DLC for Battlefield 1 over the next few days to get some practice in while you wait.
