Electronic Arts is about to announce the next Battlefield game, and the publisher is marking the occasion by offering free downloads of expansions, starting today, for Battlefield 4 and Battlefield Hardline.

The Battlefield 4 add-on Dragon's Teeth is free for the next week, from today to May 10, on all platforms that the game is available on: PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Windows PC, Xbox 360 and Xbox One. The infantry-focused expansion offers four maps set in the Asia-Pacific region, and it was originally released in July 2014. Dragon's Teeth also includes the Chain Link game mode, and gadgets such as the R.A.W.R., an unmanned ground vehicle.

Battlefield 4 developer EA DICE is also running new community missions that, if completed, unlock special rewards for players. The current one, which runs until 9 a.m. PT on May 10, tasks players with racking up 2.5 million melee kills across all Battlefield 4 multiplayer modes. If the community meets the goal, participating players will receive a Gold Battlepack.

EA said it will continue to give away expansion packs for both Battlefield 4 and Battlefield Hardline "over the next few months." The publisher will unveil this year's Battlefield title during a livestream that is scheduled to begin this Friday, May 6, at 4 p.m. ET.

Update: In addition to Battlefield 4: Dragon's Teeth, EA is offering Battlefield Hardline's Robbery expansion free from May 3-10.
