Long-time fans of the series are quite familiar with terms like "Premium Pass" and "Expansion Packs", which BV has gotten rid of completely to create a singular journey for all players to take part in together, without paying any extra buck for it.

This voyage is what they call Tides of War, a series of ongoing experience that introduce new gameplay and improvements to reinvent your World War II journey. There will be maps, modes, rewards and weekly events to keep up the flow.

If you want to get accustomed with the weapons and vehicles of the game, it would be logical if you take it to the Practice Range rather than choosing one of the regular multiplayer maps and then spend the rest of your day spawning other than fighting.

You can simply start with the Shooting Trial to practice your aim or Driving Trial, both of which will come in handy and as you score higher, you actually get better. So, switch up to different Shooting Exercises and hone your accuracy and then challenge yourself with an increased difficulty.

Till now, players had to be content with the limitation to change the look of soldiers and weapons. Overture cranks up the appearance tweaking by letting you change the exterior of their vehicles to make a sweet memory of your glorified victory.

These customizations however, are purely cosmetic and doesn't actually change or increase combat performance of the vehicles or whatsoever. Nevertheless, it lets you stand out among the crowd and help leave your mark behind, which is the actual point.
