Battlefield 5 update will add 4-player co-op and Nvidia DLSS support tomorrow

An update for Battlefield 5 which is set to drop tomorrow will add four-player co-op as well as Nvidia DLSS support.

We first heard about the four-player co-op last year. The mode, named Combined Arms, will let you team up with up to three friends to take on AI enemies in eight different PVE missions with objectives across four different maps. As for multiplayer, Rush mode will be back at the beginning of March, but only for a limited time during Chapter 2: Lightning Strikes.

Additionally, the update will add Nvidia DLSS support for RTX cards. Paul explains what the system does in detail here, but essentially DLSS (Deep Learning Super Sampling) is a rendering technique that delivers "pretty visuals and faster performance than anti-aliasing at QHD and 4K resolutions" through machine learning.

A whole host of bug fixes are also addressed in the update affecting maps, modes, vehicles, and weapons, as well as improvements to TTK (Time to Kill) and TTD (Time to Death). You can check out the full patch notes here.

Sarah's earliest gaming memories involve playing Jet Set Willy on the ZX Spectrum at a friend's house. These days, and when not writing guides, most of her spare time goes into MMOs—though she's quite partial to JRPGs too. She has spent much of the last decade playing the likes of Star Wars: The Old Republic, TERA, Final Fantasy 14, and World of Warcraft. Sarah has been writing about games for several years and, before joining PC Gamer, freelanced for the likes of TechRadar, GamingBible, and Rock Paper Shotgun. One of her fondest hopes is to one day play through the ending of Final Fantasy X without breaking down into a sobbing heap. She probably has more wolves in Valheim than you.
