New War Story: The Last Tiger

Similar to all the War Stories in the game, this is showing the untold and unexpected sides of the war.

New Map: Panzerstorm
- This brand new map is a tank-focused arena where players will roll across ridges, ditches, and elevated roads with a massive force of armor, carving a path of destruction through the countryside. The map takes place where the German mechanized war machine plunges into Belgium, smashing into Allied defensive forces.
- In Overture, DICE will introduce the long-awaited Practice Range where players will be able to explore various weapons and vehicles, including the base weapons for each class and bombing runs in their favorite planes.
More Exciting Updates
- Overture will also bring new vehicle customizations and cosmetics to the game, along with a variety of updates and fixes based on the community’s feedback. All of the bug fixes can be found in the detailed report and blog found here.
