It's not too late to get into Battlefield V, even if you're only looking to dip your toes in. DICE is hosting three free weekend events for the game this month – from October 10-13, October 17-20, and October 24-27 – and honestly, that's ample time to get your fill of WWII multiplayer mayhem.
If you're down, you can install Battlefield Von PC. The freebie is Origin-only right now. The other caveat? Not every game mode will be available – they're running on a week-by-week schedule.
Any progress you make will carry over to the full game, including unlocks like the Captain Hadlow vehicle skin for the Stug IV (Week 1), the Trench Carbine (Week 2), and the anti-air Fliegerfaust (Week 3).
I don't think I'm the only one who tends to skip most free weekends –it often doesn't feel worth the download time or data-cap investment to play a game once or twice at most before your free access is revoked –but the fact that Battlefield Vis doing three trials in a row makes this a little meatier.
