Battlefield 5 isn't coming until October 19, but Electronic Arts and DICE want to make sure that players are prepared. Over the course of the Summer, DICE will be giving away the expansions for Battlefield 1 and Battlefield 4. You have to own the base version of either game, but if you do, you'll get all that downloadable content (DLC) without paying a dime.
Battlefield 1 Turning Tides and Battlefield 4 Second Assault are free until July 17, 2018. There are also weekly rewards for Battlefield 5 that player can get just for playing Battlefield 1. From now until July 17, playing Battlefield 1 will net you a Gewehr 96 weapon skin and the Canadian Cur skins for the Huot Auto Rifle.
After July 17, Battlefield 1 Apocalypse will be the next free expansion.
The first expansions for Battlefield 1 and Battlefield 4 have already passed by their free period. There will potentially be other chances to pick up that DLC for free.
"Don’t fret if you missed the previous giveaways, either, because players may still get another shot to claim them again in the future," said Battlefield 5 writer Jeff Landa on the PlayStation Blog.
Battlefield 5 will launch on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on October 19, 2018.
