Battlefield V DLC Lightning Strikes available January 15

The second free DLC for Battlefield V – Lightning Strikes – is available from tomorrow.

The new DLC will add the Squad Conquest mode, which pits two teams of eight, who are then split up into two four-person groups, to take part in more tactical battles.

They’ll also be able to use the four new weapons added to the game, unlocked by completing Weekly challenges. They are.

  • Zk-383 SMG (Medic class)
  • Modele 1944 semi-automatic rifle (Assault class)
  • M1922 MMG (Support class)
  • Mk. III bolt-action rifle (Recon class)

Lightning Strikes will be updated through March, with a Tank Hunter vehicle, Rush mode, and Grand Operation.
