Combined Arms, the co-op mode that was announced as part of Battlefield V’s Lightning Strikes update, is now available to all players as part of a free update.
Combined Arms will allow up to four players to play cooperatively in eight PvE missions, with four different objectives across four maps. DICE intends for these missions to give players the opportunity to ease themselves in to the Battlefield V experience against AI enemies, allowing players to “improve your skills before jumping into multiplayer”. Players will earn Company Coins through Combined Arms, so if you’re helping your buddy out you needn’t feel like you’re completely wasting your time.
The announcement of the update also confirmed that Rush will finally be returning to Battlefield V for an unspecified “limited time” on Thursday 7th March.
DICE says that they are also targeting netcode issues in this update, with general quality of life improvements on maps and in ground vehicles being addressed. There are an absolute mound of bug fixes, quality of life improvements, and weapon balancing changes listed in the full patch notes, and you can read them all here.
The update is live right now on Xbox One, PS4, and PC.
