It turns out that the upcoming Battlefield V will be doing away with premium passes for additional DLC.

EA and Battlefield series developer DICE have announced that Battlefield V will be set in World War 2, will not have a premium pass or paid expansions and will release in October this year.

In Battlefield V, players will embark on a continuing, grand journey post-launch in the brand new Tides of War, created to make sure the battlefield is constantly evolving with new events, challenges, battles, and rewards that are always within reach.

EA has unveiled Battlefield 5 and numerous details fans want to know.

Battlefield V is going to launch October 19 for PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4.

The highly anticipated first-person shooter game returns back to its roots by setting Battlefield 5 during World War II, similar to what it did with its first franchise release - Battlefield 1942 - released in 2002.

64-Player Multiplayer in the Chaos of All-Out War - Lead your Company in all-out multiplayer with new experiences like the massive Grand Operations mode.

There is also a new co-operative mode called Combined Arms coming to Battlefield V, which allows up to four players to tackle a wide variety of missions together online. If you're a member of either EA Access or Origin Access, you can jump into the Play First Trial for the game on October 11.

You may have noticed that DICE did not mention battle royale at all during the Battlefield 5 reveal stream last night, not even as a joke.

But what about battle royale? While the concept art that was shown was absolutely gorgeous, the presentation did little to generate hype.

On top of that, the game's first trailer made its debut, which you can see above in all its glory. Where were the actual gameplay improvements?

Which means that it is safe to pre-order Battlefield V and enjoy the bonuses that come with it. Hopefully, DICE redeems themselves at E3 next month.
