Battlefield V are set to release their 5th chapter of the game with Chapter 5: War in the Pacific, releasing October 31st. Re-immerse yourself in the historic battle between the U.S. Armed Forces and the Imperial Japanese as Battlefield is set to re-introduce Iwo Jima (Battlefield 1942), Pacific Storm and a miniature Wake Island!
Watch the intense trailer for the new update here.
As teased in the trailer, the Katana and the American-made M2 flamethrower are set to be introduced to the arsenal of weapons available within the game as a Battle Pickup. Whether you’re looking to cut through your opponents like butter or char them beyond recognition, in order to use these new additions, you’ll have to scour the battlefield of the three new available maps.
If you’ve ever thought about ruling the skies as a pilot, dominating the seas or simply tearing up the earth in the most dangerous land vehicles of the time, the folks at EA Dice have got you covered. Chapter 5 is set to introduce you to some of the most iconic vehicles used in World War II, including the M4 Sherman, alongside added specialisation trees allowing you to intimidate your enemies beyond what you even thought possible.
Chapter 5: War in the Pacific brings a whole new premise to Battlefield V and will provide gamers with that ‘a whole new world’ feeling, and all within this free update – it would be wrong to miss it… and that’s why Battlefield are providing a free weekend trial from November 1st right through to the 4th, so all players old and new can experience this new game– sorry, “update”.
So, you’ve seen the trailer and want to try it out, but don’t know whether your hardware can handle it – you’re not alone. Luckily, prior to its release (November 20th 2018), the developers kindly provided their recommended Battlefield V pc requirements on Reddit
The developers have of course recommended the use of ray tracing graphics cards to fully utilise the DXR (DirectX Ray Tracing) capabilities that this game boasts. This is not strictly necessary but will provide you with the best possible gaming experience (especially for those that love seeing the gore of each individual kill).
If you’re not quite confident with building your own custom PC, or are looking to treat yourself to a better gaming experience, here is our personal recommendation for PC’s that have proven themselves at running Battlefield V with ease and efficiency:
Reign Sentry MKIII
