On Wednesday, November 14th, 2018, we will be releasing an update for Battlefield V for all platforms for the release of Battlefield V Deluxe Edition.
While this update has no downtime, if you are in-game when the update is deployed, you will need to finish your match and then restart your client to apply the update.

We know you’re eagerly awaiting update notes that detail what’s in the build. Those will be coming today, November 14th at 8a PT / 11a ET / 5p CET. Thanks for the patience.
Also note, PC players who pre-loaded: Origin will do a preparation check and notify you that a 16GB+ download is about to occur. This is false. It’s actually verifying files prior to the 1.56GB update file being downloaded and installed.
EDIT: UPDATED WITH PATCH NOTES
Fixed an issue that could result in a very uneven number of players at the start of a round.
Made improvements to matchmaking with a full squad which should result in less disconnects.
In some cases, the revive functionality would suddenly stop to function for all of the players on a server. This has now been fixed.
Further improvements to game client stability have been made.
In the Airborne game mode, spawn protection has been added when attackers spawn into planes. The planes are no longer as vulnerable to AA fire as they used to be at longer distances.
Fixed an issue in Airborne where the bomb carriers could finish arming the objective even though they were dead.
Players can no longer shoot down airplanes too quickly in Airborne, which could result in the attackers not being able to spawn.
In War Stories, players are no longer able to collect Letters while playing offline due to them not being able to update the persistence counters, which requires an online connection.
Fixed an issue where a weapon would disappear on the weapon selection screen.
Fixed an issue in Frontlines mode on Devastation where the bomb in some rare cases spawned inside a wall.
Fixed an issue which made the menus unusable when cancelling a matchmaking session.
Fixed an issue with the lens sight alignment on the MP34 weapon.
Xbox One Only
Improved how the game resumes when using the Xbox One Instant-On function.
DXR ray tracing can now be enabled with graphics cards that support this function.
