EA and DICE will be unleashing a new update for Battlefield V in just over a week right now, with the second chapter of Tides of War dropping teased as 'Lightning Strikes'. The new update will reportedly roll out on January 17.


The only tease we have now turned up from the in-game calendar and simply reads 'A Few Good Soldiers' but we definitely know Lighting Strikes "Lightning Strikes focuses on vehicle warfare and rapid infantry movement. The chapter brings to life the fear created by the Axis war machine through original content and challenges built around vehicle play".

The developer continues: "Combined Arms: Join forces with up to three friends and take on the co-op experience of Combined Arms. In a series of Combat Strike missions across several maps, you and your squad will fight against AI components in various challenges. During the chapter, two game modes will be added to Battlefield V. A revamped Rush is one of them. Say goodbye to MCOM stations and hello to bombs as you take on this classic, only available during Lightning Strikes. Speaking of classic modes, in Squad Conquest, you'll take on the most iconic way to play Battlefield, but in a more intense way. Only 16 players - two squads per team - will fight for map domination".

Battlefield V's new Lightning Strikes update will arrive on January 17 for all versions: PC, Xbox One, and PS4.
