War in the Pacific is Free on Battlefield V's Trial Weekend

By Heidi Nicholas,
Battlefield V's free trial weekend starts tomorrow, November 1st, and runs until Sunday the 3rd. During the free trial, players can try out all of the multiplayer modes and the single-player War Stories. Players can also have a go at the new War in the Pacific update, which goes live today.


War in the Pacific introduces two new factions: the Imperial Japanese Army and the U.S. Armed Forces. It has a range of new WW2 weapons, including the Type 99 Arisaka and the katana, and new vehicles, such as the M4 Sherman and the Dinghy. Jack Culver and Keisuke Nakamura are the two new Elites, and there's two new maps: Iwo Jima and Pacific Storm. The reimagined Wake Island map will be coming in December.

Aside from the new weapons, factions, vehicles, Elites, and maps, War in the Pacific also brings tweaks and quality of life improvements. The update notes mention the fixes and changes, including players now being able to inspect their primary and secondary weapons while playing, and a bug which caused soldiers to look as though they were gaining health from an ammo pouch.

Rolling out today alongside the War in the Pacific update was the news that the Battlefield V Year 2 Edition is available for £54.99 as a digital download. The Battlefield V Year 2 edition includes the base game and the year one rewards for the Tides of War chapters. These include 17 primary weapons, four vehicles, two Epic Soldier Outfits; the Double Down and Baron von Zorn, ten weapon skins, and four vehicle skins. The Year 2 edition also allows players to customize their Company with two Epic soldier outfits.

The Battlefield V free trial weekend starts tomorrow, November 1st, and ends on Sunday the 3rd.

Hey, I'm Heidi! I've just finished studying a Masters in English Literature, but I've been obsessed with gaming since long before then. I began on the PS2 with Spyro, before graduating to the Xbox 360 and disappearing into Skyrim. I'm now a loyal RPG fan, but I still like to explore other genres — when I'm not playing Assassin's Creed Odyssey, or being lured back into Red Dead Redemption 2 or The Witcher 3!
