With the Firestorm battle royale mode just days away, DICE has released an updated content roadmap for Battlefield V detailing what will be coming our way over the next six or so months.

The new Battlefield 5 roadmap concerns Chapter 3: Trial by Fire and Chapter 4: Defying the Odds.

Trial By Fire kicks off on March 25th and is headlined by Firestorm Battle Royale. 64-players drop on the largest map yet, scavenge for weapons, and battle to survive. Yadda, yadda, you know what the score is with battle royale by now.

Then, in April, it’s the arrival of new missions for the Combined Arms co-op mode, including hardcore mode and, at least, matchmaking. This is swiftly followed by Mercury, a new map based on Operation Mercury and featuring the Battle of Crete, in Greece. Trial By Fire is rounded out in June with the arrival of a new mode called Outpost, although DICE isn’t quite ready to share what this new mode is just yet.

A grand total of six new weapons will be added during Trial By Fire’s run.

Once that’s out the way it’s the turn of Chapter 4: Defying The Odds. Details are a little flakier on this but it includes at least two new maps and modes focused on close-quarters play. One is called Marita and builds on the Greek conflict, while the second is a “closely guarded secret that we know our Battlefield Veterans will enjoy!” It’s a classic Battlefield map, basically, so answers on a postcard if you have any idea what it could be.

Looking even further afield, Chapter 5: Awakening The Giant arrives in Fall 2019, adding in an all-out invasion in a new theater of war. Judging from the name, this is probably going to introduce the Russian or US factions.

Overall it looks a little bit light in terms of maps compared to a traditional premium pass but there's still a decent haul of content coming between now and the summer. Three maps should help freshen things up, while Monday's release of Firestorm will surely prove a welcome distraction.

What do you think the classic Battlefield map could be? And which giant do you think will be awakened? Let us know below!

Wow. 4 entire new maps.
To be frank, with the level of content we are getting now they've moved away from charging for map packs, I would prefer to go back to paying for map packs.
In those we would get 5 new maps every couple of months.
