Following the reveal that Battlefield V will be receiving a post-launch single-player campaign titled ‘The Last Tiger’, DICE design director Eric Holmes has confirmed the campaign will be a “German war story.”
Building on Battlefield V‘s E3 single-player hype, DICE promised a multitude of interconnecting vignettes to build the foundation of its single-player campaign. These stories, titled ‘War Stories’, will be in five parts. DICE has already revealed two War Stories, including ‘Nordlys’ and ‘Under No Flag’.
So far, the campaigns appear to indicate that DICE is pushing into underrepresented areas of WWII. ‘Nordlys’, for example, is a Nordic perspective on the war. ‘Under No Flag’, by contrast, moves into the brutal campaigns of North Africa, and ‘The Last Tiger’, as confirmed by Holmes on Twitter, will be from a German perspective:
Yes, "The Last Tiger" is a German war story.

Further details have come out today, too, stating that ‘The Last Tige’r takes place in the twilight of the war. Players will assume the role of the leader of a German tank battalion as its members collectively consider defection. While the other four stories will be available day one, ‘The Last Tiger’ is set to be release at a later, currently unspecified date.
