Battlefield V's Chapter 5 takes us to War in the Pacific

We're getting Iwo Jima and Pacific Storm maps with this, alongside a reimagined Wake Island, new weapons, and more.

EA and DICE have revealed that Battlefield V's Chapter 5 is coming on October 31, taking us to the War in the Pacific, with players able to try the content for free on November 1 to 4 as part of a trial weekend.

Two new factions are included with this, including the US Armed Forces and the Imperial Japanese Army, and the classic maps Iwo Jima and Wake Island have been reimagined for this new Chapter.

Iwo Jima is coming at launch, along with the map called Pacific Storm, seeing bad weather come in similar to Paracel Storm in Battlefield 4. Wake Island, however, will be landing in December, remade for the new audience.

Classic weapons are included with this Chapter as well, including katanas, M1 Garand, Type 99 Arisaka, M3 Grease Gun, Nambu Type 2A, and more. The katana, however, is a battle pickup that needs to be found on the map, and another pickup is the M2 Flamethrower.

As for vehicles, the M4 Sherman is a medium tank, while the Japanese have the Type 97. The LVT and Ka-Mi are amphibious tanks too, and there's even the F4U Corsair and Japanese Zero Fighter planes. Specialisations have also been added, so you can customise how you use vehicles.

Reinforcements come in the form of the Sherman Calliope tank barrage, as well as the Sector Artillery, JB-2 Rocket, and more. New elite skins are on the way too, as well as chapter rewards, including outfits, skins, and assignments, not to mention the weekly challenges with their own rewards.

For more on the finer details of the Chapter head this way. Are you excited to head to the Pacific?

REVIEW. Written by Kim Orremark

"All the work DICE has done in renewing the core mechanics has resulted in an experience that feels tighter than it has done for many years."
