Play Battlefield V Starting Today with EA Access

Get ready to enter mankind’s greatest conflict in Battlefield V with a World War II experience unlike any other, taking you to unexpected and previously unseen fronts.

If you’re already a series fan you probably know that Battlefield V Deluxe Edition launches on November 15, and the Standard Edition on November 20. But did you know that EA Access subscribers can start playing today on Friday, November 9? Here’s how to start your 10-hour Battlefield V trial before the full game launches later this month.

Get EA Access Today

An EA Access subscription lets you play EA’s best Xbox games as much as you want, exclusively on Xbox One. Subscribers get automatic access to a collection of over 50 games including hits like Battlefield 1, EA Sports FIFA 18, Burnout Paradise Remastered, and many more.

Subscribers also save an additional 10% on EA digital purchases on the Microsoft Store, including full games, season passes, DLC, and Ultimate Team content. But arguably the best perk is access to exclusive early trials of EA games. These Play First Trials give you 10 hours of game time before launch at no extra cost — download the trial, start playing, and see how much progress you can make before time runs out. And if you decide to buy the game your progress carries over. Pretty sweet, right?

Battlefield VBattlefield V

Play the Battlefield V Trial Today, November 9

Play as much multiplayer action as you can handle across eight incredible maps that will take you from the frozen Arctic circle to the blazing deserts of North Africa. Join the fight in both new and classic modes then prepare yourself for the ultimate multiplayer experience – Grand Operations. You’ll fight your way through vast historically inspired battles on a variety of maps and modes over fictional in-operation days. The days are represented by rounds played, and the actions you take on each will affect your circumstances and access to resources on the next. Your only limit is how many multiplayer battles you can squeeze into 10 hours.

Experience New Single-Player War Stories

We’ve got an amazing anthology of single-player experiences for you as well. In each of our War Stories you’ll visit a new, unseen front in the global conflict and witness these human dramas through the eyes of the men and women who helped change the world forever.

Battlefield VBattlefield V

During your Play First Trial, you’ll be able to play through the Prologue and Under No Flag stories. The Prologue will give you a chance to step into the boots of a variety of soldiers on the front lines, fighting for the greater good or desperately trying to stay alive. In Under No Flag you’ll join a band of scoundrels including Billy Bridger, who’ve been given a nearly impossible task far behind enemy lines.

Learn More About the Under No Flag War Story

Let’s take a closer look at this War Story and the challenges you’ll face. It begins in a London jail, where ne’er-do-well Billy Bridger is sitting out the war. That is until he’s hand selected to join the British Special Boat Section or SBS – they have a plan for young Billy, and it involves blowing up a Luftwaffe base in a sweltering desert far from home. Suffice it to say, Billy’s not too keen on this “opportunity” to serve king and country.

Battlefield VBattlefield V

You’ll guide Billy on his path to redemption by sabotaging the enemy operations in any way you can — but remember you’re in enemy territory and act accordingly. Keep a low profile, take out soldiers, and plant your explosives without raising a fuss if you don’t want a whole lot of enemy reinforcements to ruin your day.

Suicide mission or new beginning? Only you can decide when you play through Under No Flag.

Don’t Miss Out – Sign Up Today for EA Access

You still have time to get in on all the combat and adventure before anybody else. Join EA Access today, download the Battlefield V Play First Trial, and get ready to deploy for 10 full hours of the most immersive Battlefield yet.

Stay tuned to Xbox Wire for the latest news and information for all things Xbox One and Battlefield V.

GAMES

November 8th : New Preview Alpha 1811 Update (1811.181107-1810)

Coming in hot!

HOW TO GET IT:

  • If your console is in Instant-On mode and you have been selected to receive the update, it will download and install the update and reboot to standby.
  • NOTE: Once the update is available to you, you can manually begin the update by launching the Guide and navigating to All Settings > System > Updates.
  • If your console hasn’t downloaded and installed the update by 3:00 AM PDT 11/9/2018 (10:00AM GMT 11/8/18), you will be prompted to do so at that time.

 

DETAILS:

OS version released: rs5_release_xbox_dev_1811.181107-1810

Available: 6:00PM PST 11/8/18

Mandatory Date/Time: 3:00 AM PST 11/9/18

Starting at 6:00 p.m. PST today, members of the Xbox One Preview Alpha ring will begin receiving a new 1811 Xbox One system update (181107-1810). Read on for more about the fixes and known issues in the latest 1811 system update.

 

New Features:

 

Family Settings

  • Children signing up for new accounts will now be asked to add a parent only if required to by local privacy regulations (e.g., GDPR or COPPA). This means that some minors, like teens in the U.S., will no longer have to add a parent and join a Microsoft family during signup. Xbox privacy and online safety defaults will still be applied based on age, and in order to change those, the minor would need to add a parent on Xbox who can then change their settings. Minors not in a family can add a parent anytime in Settings > Account > Family settings > Add a parent. Joining a family would also allow the parent and child to use other family features like content restrictions, screen time, activity reporting, and spending.
  • Children that are subject to local privacy regulations will still be required to add a parent during signup. While this will create a Microsoft family through which the parent can use family features like content restrictions, screen time, activity reporting, and spending, the parent will no longer be required to sign in on Xbox. If a parent wants to change their child’s Xbox privacy and online safety settings, the parent can sign in separately on Xbox and manage their family in Settings > Account > Family settings.
  • Existing child accounts are not affected by this change and will remain with their parents in their current Microsoft family.

 

Mouse & Keyboard Support

  • We have enabled mouse support in this release.  Please check out the Quest in the Xbox Insider Hub to experience mouse and keyboard support in Warframe.

 

Search Enhancements

  • The search function has been enhanced across the console and will now return responses from the Xbox Assist application for example to help with help, support and troubleshooting.  Please check out the Quest in the Xbox Insider Hub to help us gather feedback.

 

Fixes:

Unhide titles in My Games and Apps

  • The sequence of keys to press to unhide titles from My Games and Apps has been changed:
    • To Unhide items in you collection, press down on the left stick and hit ‘X’

 

System – Localization

  • Fixed localization issues throughout the OS.

 

System – General

  • General app stability

 

Known Issues:

Audio

  • We are tracking audio issues in which some games have audio that cuts in and out.

Controllers

  • We are aware of an issue where controllers may need to be re-synced after taking an update.

Rock Band 4 Owners Can Play Rivals Expansion for Free Until November 14

If you consider yourself a fan of music, you owe it to yourself to check out Rock Band 4 this week. Starting at 11:00 p.m. PDT on Tuesday, November 6 and running to 8:59 p.m. PDT on Wednesday, November 14, everyone who owns RB4 will have a week of free access to the Rivals expansion.

That gives you access to Rockudrama, the hilarious campaign that sets you as the star of your very own live-action rock documentary, 44 free songs exclusive to the Rivals expansion, online Quickplay, and the eponymous Rivals mode, which is where the heart of the action is.

As an added bonus for Rock Band 4 players, we’ll run a special one-week challenge that showcases the spirit of Rivals and awards an exclusive track skin to everyone who participates.

Rock Band Rivals We Elect to Rock ChallengeRock Band Rivals We Elect to Rock Challenge

For those of you who haven’t played in a while, or have been curious about the Rivals expansion, now’s a great time to check out all the cool stuff it adds to the Rock Band 4 experience!

If you are curious about Rivals mode; here’s a quick overview:

Crews: Rivals mode pits groups of up to 10 players against other Crews. A Crew’s collective contribution over the course of the weekly challenge will determine whether they are promoted or not.

Rewards: Rivals mode provides unique rewards to players based on where they finish the season – from wild character assets to exclusive track skin designs.

Challenges: Each week, the team at Harmonix sets up a unique weekly challenge that asks the Rock Band community to compete against each other using a subset of the Rock Band 4 music catalog. Think of it as a themed playlist – one week may focus on metal songs, while another week may focus on easy songs, or songs with the word rock in them.

Seasons: Challenges are grouped into a Season. Seasons generally last for 8 weeks. Over that time, Crews will be promoted to new tiers based on their play.  Each promotion tier offers an exclusive reward. Get as far as you can each season to collect everything!

Season 9 will start on November 29, right after Thanksgiving – get your Crew together now and join the fun!

Surviving Mars’ First Expansion Coming to Xbox One November 15 with a Free Weekend

Surviving Mars is certainly not your average console game. Sure, it’s set in a sci-fi future where humans must fight to survive in the arid wastelands of space, but you’ll find that surviving our Mars is more about keeping tabs on your colonists’ mental health than flying spaceships. It’s a city-building game where players lead a colonization effort on behalf of a sponsor back on earth. You must manage resources, research scientific anomalies, and build your own life-supporting dome on the red planet. And now with our first-ever expansion, Space Race, launching on November 15, you’ll have to contend with rival colonies too!

Space Race puts you up against other sponsors who want to outdo your colony’s efforts, and that comes with more responsibilities and challenges to face. Here’s a look at a few of them in our latest trailer.

Or, you could see the new expansion for yourself! We are hosting a streaming event tomorrow at 17:00 CET / 08:00 PST at the Space Race: Rival Colony stream, and you can join our own Space Race here: https://mixer.com/paradoxinteractive

To celebrate this first expansion, Surviving Mars will have a free weekend for Xbox One players at the launch of Space Race from November 15 to 18, so now is a great time to explore another planet for the first time here.

With rival colonies on the map, players can vie for milestones, anomalies and even important colonists with several other AI colonies backed by competing sponsors. Or you can keep it friendly by establishing trade agreements and responding to their distress calls (and hoping they respond to yours). Your relationship with them will be dynamic, and can even get difficult at times, but ultimately Earth is far, far away and you might need to rely on your Martian neighbors. After all, humankind is most resourceful in a competition

We’ve also seen a lot of members of our community asking to know more about the lives of individual colonists in the middle of this grand experiment. What’s going on at the colonist level of this massive endeavor? What’s with the Flat Mars Society and how can it even exist? What happens when a dome wants to secede from the colony? With Space Race, players can now play out narrative events throughout the colonization process that help add a much-needed human, personal feel to each game and reveal the realities of life in the dome.

Lastly, we’ve also reworked some of the mission sponsor mechanics so that each sponsor has a really different playstyle with their own goals to complete and unique advantages such as special vehicles or buildings. Adding unique buildings and vehicles was critical for our goal. Now every sponsor feels acutely distinctive, and we expect our players will play them differently. This means that even if you successfully establish your colony, you can always go back and take on a whole new challenge with a new mission sponsor (and we’ve added more sponsors, to boot)!

If you get the Space Race Plus bundle, you can also listen to pop music while you play from some of the sponsors’ home countries with the Marsvision Song Contest and get a special Colony Design set for some special buildings to add to your dome. These are some fun extra additions that we thought the community might enjoy. The music especially makes a big difference in a game like Surviving Mars where you might get absorbed in a play session for hours.

All of these changes have come from a vocal and engaged community of players who’ve stuck by our sides since the beginning. They’ve been clear about what would really take this game to the next level and we’d be fools to ignore them. That’s why we’re so excited to be able to launch Space Race next week and have even more content to come!

Warface Gets Battle Royale Mode and a New Raid

Today we would like to take a closer look at the first major update for Warface that is now live on the Xbox One. The update will feature a bunch of new content that includes new maps, a new raid, and most importantly – the long-awaited battle royale mode that we hope will provide Xbox players with an unmatched experience of fast-paced FPS gaming. Let’s take a closer look.

Warface ScreenshotWarface Screenshot

First, let’s look at the most important part of the update – the all-new battle royale PvP mode. Today the battle royale mode can be found in almost every shooter. It has become a sort of a common element by which numerous extremely different (gameplay-wise) projects can be compared and measured against each other.

Warface ScreenshotWarface Screenshot

Warface in this instance has a number of distinctive features that shape its unique gameplay, and the first of them is its adrenaline-fueled dynamics. While most of the BR matches require about 30 to 40 minutes, Warface battles will not last more than 5 minutes. Most likely, you will meet your first opponent in the first minute, meaning you do not have time to camp or peacefully loot for 10 minutes or so. Coupled with hundreds of distinctive weapons and pieces of original equipment, Warface drives you to experience arguably the most aggressive and fast-paced battle royale matches ever.

Surely enough we could not forget about the PvE players – and we’re happy to announce the new Black Shark PvE raid. Players will have an opportunity to try out one of the most immersive raids in Warface, and meet some of the game’s most interesting enemies. The story takes us to a newly discovered Blackwood HQ, seemingly reminiscent of the skyscraper taken down in the “Tower Raid” operation. This tower is only under construction, so it is the best opportunity for Warface operatives to take it down, planting charges on each of its numerous floors. Meanwhile, operatives will also have to hack the servers and obtain data from internal Blackwood networks.

The update will also include a pack of five maps, each featuring its own PvP mode, in addition to the already rich Warface portfolio of PvP maps.

Motel: A fast-paced team deathmatch between Blackwood and Warface operatives will take place in a motel located in a scorching desert.

Palace: One of the most popular Warface maps set in an eastern-styled palace is coming to the Xbox One with the classic Plant The Bomb mode.

High Hill: Xbox One players would get to play the Storm mode on this variously leveled forest map.

Construction: The construction site offers players plenty of tactical opportunities to capture the enemy team’s launch codes

Mojave: The long-awaited battle royale comes to Xbox One on a large detailed map located in the Mojave desert. Be sure to keep an eye out for those easter eggs!

Descenders Update Adds New Trick System

Pip from publishing label No More Robots here! I’m wheelie excited (sorry) to bring you the latest update about Descenders that will see you pulling sicker runs than ever before – the Trick or Treat Update!

Made by Dutch team RageSquid, Descenders is a downhill mountain biking game that sees you bombing across five environments at high speed, from open fields to fiery crags. This new update will see you step up your game with a whole new trick system, as well as a replay feature to capture your best moments from their best angles.

The team has been listening to all your feedback, and one of the main things you’ve been screaming for is tricks – we’re talking nac nacs, no handers, and other iconic moves, all of which have been added to make your runs sicker than ever! Combined with a new bail system, this update will challenge even the best riders to get the best flow out of a run.

In addition to tricks, the update will bring you the replay mode – a way to save, replay and re-record levels you’ve played so you can capture them perfectly. Make amazing videos and show the world your skills, highlight that fantastic moment when you land a boss jump flawlessly or maybe teach a new player how to navigate a scary obstacle – with clever camera angles and replay modes, you can go as far as your creativity will take you. We can’t wait to see what you share!

As always, Descenders updates never come without cool loot for you to unlock and find. As well as shiny new bikes, clothes for your body, gear for your bike and a nice visual upgrade for crew members, the latest update sees a brand new bonus environment. You’ll have to hunt it out, but you’ll be glad you did when you find it! It’s possibly the best map yet, with plenty of features to keep each team happy and lots of room to try out all those new tricks! The new update is available now.

New Preview Alpha Ring 1811 Update – 11/6/18

Starting at 2:00 p.m. PDT today, members of the Xbox One Preview Alpha Ring will begin receiving a new 1811 Xbox One system update (181104-1920). Read on for more about the fixes and known issues in the latest 1811 system update.

 

New Features:

 

Family Settings

  • Children signing up for new accounts will now be asked to add a parent only if required to by local privacy regulations (e.g., GDPR or COPPA). This means that some minors, like teens in the U.S., will no longer have to add a parent and join a Microsoft family during signup. Xbox privacy and online safety defaults will still be applied based on age, and in order to change those, the minor would need to add a parent on Xbox who can then change their settings. Minors not in a family can add a parent anytime in Settings > Account > Family settings > Add a parent. Joining a family would also allow the parent and child to use other family features like content restrictions, screen time, activity reporting, and spending.
  • Children that are subject to local privacy regulations will still be required to add a parent during signup. While this will create a Microsoft family through which the parent can use family features like content restrictions, screen time, activity reporting, and spending, the parent will no longer be required to sign in on Xbox. If a parent wants to change their child’s Xbox privacy and online safety settings, the parent can sign in separately on Xbox and manage their family in Settings > Account > Family settings.
  • Existing child accounts are not affected by this change and will remain with their parents in their current Microsoft family.

 Mouse & Keyboard Support

  • We have enabled mouse support in this release.  Please check out the Quest in the Xbox Insider Hub to experience mouse and keyboard support in Warframe.

 Search Enhancements

  • The search function has been enhanced across the console and will now return responses from the Xbox Assist application for example to help with help, support and troubleshooting.  Please check out the Quest in the Xbox Insider Hub to help us gather feedback.

 

Fixes:

 

Audio

  • Additional fixes to improve the stability of Audio so users would encounter no audio is games.

 Clubs

  • Fixes to enable Club owners who want to name their club channels with any non-alphanumeric characters (including Asian characters) are able to do so.
  • Users are now able to Select the Show in my feed option or update the list of games to show in the feeds.
  • We have fixed the state of the “Show/hide in my feed” button for the Main feed.
  • Users are now able to manages games in Activity Feed with latest update

 Controllers

  • Fixes to improve the connectivity of controllers to the console.

 System – General

  • Fixes in Guide to correctly show what music is playing when apps such as Spotify are running.
  • Stability fixes to the platform.

 

Known Issues:

 

Audio

  • We are tracking audio issues in which some games have audio that cuts in and out.

Profile Color

  • Sometimes users may encounter the incorrect Profile color when powering on the console.
