Battlefield V developer DICE has lifted the veil on its 2019 roadmap for the World War II shooter, which sees free content rolling out for the game across PlayStation 4, PC, and Xbox One for the rest of the year.

Today kicks off Chapter 3: Trial by Fire, with the main attraction of course being the long overdue battle royale mode, Firestorm. This will be complemented by extra Combined Arms challenges next month, with Outpost, a new multiplayer offering, rolling out in June. 

If you're wondering about Firestorm, it will feature the Battlefield series' trademark destruction, heaps of vehicles, and the perennial threat of being roasted alive. It probably should have been there at launch, but there we go.

June will kick off Chapter 4: Defying the Odds. This introduces Marita, a new multiplayer map, plus an additional multiplayer mode that sees two teams of five slugging it out in an enclosed space. DICE will follow this up with Chapter 5: Awakening the Giant in the autumn, although details have yet to be confirmed on what this will offer.

Battlefield V was released on PS4, PC, and Xbox One back in November, and despite missing some key content at launch, is still a solid shooter. Of course, if you're only just jumping into the game, it's in much better shape than it was on release day.
