'Battlefield V' hops on the battle royale bandwagon

Adjust Comment Print

Electronic Arts revealed that Battlefield V will have a battle royale mode during its press conference at E3 on Saturday, an announcement that comes just weeks after Activision revealed Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 will be doing the same. Players complained that this wasn't historically accurate (even though many women did fight on the front lines of the war for certain countries) and that it broke the "immersion" that DICE promised for Battlefield V. Most of these arguments are flimsy covers for men who hate women. Battlefield V will not contain loot boxes nor will it have a premium pass.

"With our next Battlefield game, the team at Dice is bringing the intensity of combat to life in new and unexpected ways", said EA CEO Andrew Wilson at the time. The trailer, seen above, shows off what the developer described in the earlier event, such as dynamic destruction, the new fortification construction feature, among the usual gameplay snippets. Players will have the ability to dive and smash through windows and move around heavy turrets from their fixed position. There will also be a new battle royale mode, but it wasn't given a video preview. Those are the incidents that proved to be decisive moments during the second World War.

Battlefield V will launch on October 16th for Xbox One, PS4, and PC. And are you eager to revisit WWII?

"It will be unlike anything you've played before, and we'll have more to talk about later this year", the developers teased.
