DICE has dropped the official trailer for Lightning Strikes, the next season of content coming Battlefield V’s way. Tides of War Chapter 2 - Lightning Strikes is due to kick off on January 17th and includes a trio of modes, map updates, new vehicles, weapons, and company gear.
UPDATE: And so the Battlefield V merry-go-round continues. DICE has now announced it will be totally reverting all of its Time to Kill changes and we'll be right back where we started. 
And then there were six. This is where things really start heating up as our six champions now go head to head an effort to reach the final. We've separated the wheat from the chaff (*sniff* goodnight Monster Hunter, my sweet prince) and things are about to get serious in the 12 Games of Christmas 2019. It's the Semi-Finals and it's Battlefield V versus God of War.
Is it that time again? It's been a whirlwind year but we're already barreling toward Chrimbo. And on GD, that can only mean one thing - the return of the 12 Games of Christmas. Toot the horns, bang the drums. Make a big a song and dance.
DICE is deploying the first major update for Battlefield V shortly, albeit slightly delayed from its targeted arrival today. Tucked in among all the content inclusions is a major revamp of DirectX Raytracing (DXR) performance for PC players who own Nvidia GeForce RTX 20 Series graphics cards.
Nvidia has dropped a new behind-the-scenes video for Battlefield V, intended to show off the ray-tracing capabilities now available for its GeForce RTX 20 Series graphics cards. Battlefield 5 is the world’s first game to support ray-tracing. It looks fantastic but as we all know, comes at a prohibitive performance cost.
DICE has locked down the dates for the first bombardment of post-launch content for Battlefield V, kicking off on Tuesday, December 4th with the arrival of the Panzerstorm map.
The first raytracing benchmarks from Battlefield V are beginning to surface. A number of sites that have their mitts on Nvidia’s top-end GeForce RTX 20 Series graphics cards have been busy testing just how demanding the “holy grail” of graphics advancements really is.
Nvidia’s getting a bit too rapid with its graphics driver updates these days. In fact, we’d quite like them to slow down. It’s only been a few a matter of days since the GeForce 416.81 driver and now the GeForce 416.94 WHQL GPU driver is ready and waiting for GeForce owners to download.
Battlefield V is available to play on PC right now provided you stump up the cash for an EA Origin Access Premier subscription, just make sure you’ve got the latest AMD Radeon or Nvidia GeForce graphics card drivers installed and you’re good to go. However, if you’re one of the lucky few who’ve got your mitts on a GeForce RTX 2080 Ti, GeForce RTX 2080, or GeForce RTX 2070 graphics card, you’re probably wondering when you can finally see what the fuss is all about in regards to real-time ray tracing.
The latest Nvidia GeForce 416.81 graphics card driver fixes one of the high-profile BSOD issues affecting some GeForce RTX 2080 Ti users. This is a software-level fix only though, so it doesn’t tackle any of the hardware-based issues which appear to be causing a fair number of RTX 2080 Ti graphics cards to die.
