Battlefield V Dev Looking Into How Battle Royale Could Work

Battlefield V Dev Looking Into How Battle Royale Could Work

EA held a reveal event for Battlefield V today and confirmed a whole lot of details.

Battlefield V is due to launch on October 19th, exactly one week after Call of Duty: Black Ops III and one week before Red Dead Redemption 2 in what's going to be the hottest October in many years when it comes to game releases. But rather than focus on some of the war's biggest fronts, Battlefield 5 will center on the "unexpected battles and untold stories" for the Second Great War, according to DICE.

We now know that DICE teamed with NVIDIA for Battlefield V, after years and years and many Battlefield games that were optimized for Radeon as DICE used to work with AMD. until now.

One of the more surprising announcements is that Battlefield V will not launch with a Premium Pass of any kind.

Battlefield V will be heading to PS4, Xbox One and PC. Deluxe Edition owners will gain early access on October 16, Origin Access and EA Access subscribers will receive a Play First trial on October 11.

Conquest mode is among the popular Battlefield multiplayer game formats - featuring 64 players - to return, joined by new Grand Operations - which take place within Tides of War and involve players fighting through up to four "days" of combat, with each day's engagement directly affecting the next.

Battlefield 5 has a much bigger emphasis on character customization, and players will be able to customize several aspects of their character in a way not seen in any other Battlefield game to date.

Co-op is also returning in Battlefield 5 under the name Combined Arms.

Here are some high resolution screenshots from the game that reveal tantalising clues into Battlefield V's story line and game play.

The chapter of war is also an interesting idea. It's part of the game's attempt at a live service since it will update and give players new overarching chapters and questlines that can yield "unique items and cosmetics". However, like Battlefield 1, DICE is aiming for another "reimagining" of events.

Curiously, BFV doesn't seem to have a battle royale mode. The new features and modes should've been shown off with actual gameplay, not four dudes sitting around a table discussing it with the occasional artwork being shown. DICE has also confirmed that the single player War Stories will also return, in the form of anthologies. Well, not quite. Tight games of Grand Operations - Battlefield's multi-round epic game mode - will now culminate in an extra round, known as Last Stand.
