final update

EA had previously said this Summer Update will be the game's final big update. It's a major one, but today's update notes explain EA's decision not to promote it as usual: "we recognize that there are more important conversations taking place in the world today... We’re otherwise encouraging that we all take notice of what’s happening in the United States, as well as other places around the world, and ask how we can all do more, as we must do more." The notes also refer to EA's recent announcement of a $1 million donation towards organisations "dedicated to the fight for racial justice", as well as the company's plans for how it aims to "drive meaningful change".

The update adds in new two new maps: the all-new Al Marj Encampment, set in Libya, and a redesigned Provence map. The Al Marj Encampment map is infantry-only with "close-quarter fights and ranged combat", while the Provence map has a new playable area allowing for land vehicles. There's nine new weapons: the Sjögren Shotgun and Chauchat for Support, M3 Infrared and K31 for Recon, the Welgun for Medic, the M1941 Johnson for Assault, and the PPK/PPK Suppressed, M1911 Suppressed, and Welrod for all classes. New gadgets include the Doppel-Schuss and RMN 50 Grenade Launcher for Recon, the Pistol Flamethrower for Assault, and the Shaped Charge and Kampfpistole for Support. There's also three new grenades for all classes: the Firecracker Grenade, Demolition Grenade, and Type 99 Mine. Lastly, there's new vehicles, including the A-20 bomber, P-70 Night Fighter, P-51D fighter plane, P-51K fighter plane, M8 Greyhound and Puma Armored Car. The update also includes other changes, which you can check in the update notes.

The Summer update is out for Battlefield V now.

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!
