Prime Gaming is adding two titles from the Battlefield FPS games series that members of the subscription service will be able to claim for free for a limited time, Amazon has announced today. Starting from today, subscribers will be able to grab EA Dice's 2016 shooter Battlefield 1 for free, and in a couple weeks' time, the most recent addition to the long-running series, Battlefield V, will also be available to claim.
Battlefield 1 standard edition becomes free to claim today and will be available until August 4. In case you're unfamiliar, this one – which, despite being termed '1', is actually the 15th installment in the Battlefield series – takes players to a World War 1 setting, letting players use weapons based on those from the period. The game takes players to locations across the world with different combat styles, such as intense urban battling in a French town under siege, sprawling combat in the Italian Alps, and others. It has both a single-player campaign and 64-player multiplayer modes.
Battlefield V standard edition, meanwhile, will be available for members to pick up between August 2 and October 1. This one takes players to World War 2, with a heavy focus on party-based features and mechanics – for example, resource management and scarcity – and allows for a lot of character customisation.
Battlefield V also adds a new layer of realism and depth to the series, allowing players to do things like create fortifications and repair war-damaged structures to gain an advantage on the battlefield and shape the outcomes of battles more directly.
