Two Battlefield expansions are free to Xbox Gold Subscribers.

 

The Battlefield Hardline: Robbery downloadable content (DLC) is the 2nd of four expansion packs announced for the game. Take down the opposition head-on with 4 new maps – Precinct 7, The Docks, Museum, and Break Pointe. Pull off that big job with your crew in the new competitive Squad Heist game mode, hit Legendary rank status, and sport new gear: 4 new weapons, 2 new gadgets, 2 new rides, and new camo.

Battlefield 4: Dragon’s Teeth drops you into urban combat across Asian cities in four all-new multiplayer maps. Wreak havoc in a floating restaurant or drain the lake opening up for a frontal tank assault, all while the battle rages between the modern high rises of Sunken Dragon. Fight among the huge monuments of despots in the grey concrete Propaganda. Wage wars within the bustling alleyways and upon the rooftops of Pearl Market. Cruise with fast-moving PWC’s on the canals in the pristine park to get the upper hand in the rapid-paced infantry battle of Lumphini Garden. Dragon’s Teeth also includes five new weapons, the controllable unmanned ground vehicle R.A.W.R., ten assignments and the new game mode Chain Link, where you create chains by linking together capture points to win the battle.

It’s not clear how long the freebies last, or if they’re coming to Playstation, too.

Battlefield 4 is backwards compatible with Xbox One, and also has several free expansions, including: Legacy Operations (featuring familiar Battlefield maps), Community Operations (jungle fighting), and Night Operations (night-vision recommended!). Both Battlefield Hardline and Battlefield 4 are among the games in the EA Access Vault – a subscription service for EA games. If you’re curious about it and if it’s worth it, read our review.

The Battlefield franchise will announce its next entrant into the storied franchise this Friday (May 6th) at 4 PM ET on the Battlefield official Twitch page. In the meantime, there’s a countdown timer (because we love those, right?) over at the game’s official website. EA and DICE have yet to announce an official title for the upcoming game, or release any details about its setting. Speculation based on the available information indicates the game may be set in World War I or World War II. One of Battlefield Hardline‘s expansions added WWI weapons, though there has been much debate over how appealing such a game would be, given the nature of trench warfare.

Wherever and whenever the Battlefield franchise is going, we’ll know on Friday.
