​Battlefield V’s Battle Royale Mode Named As Firestorm

Hold onto your butts as a load of new information has just dropped about Battlefield V.

Not only is there a brand-new trailer, but the Battle Royale mode (and its features) has also been revealed.

The mode will be called ‘Firestorm’ and will allow 16 four-player teams to compete against one another.

The new trailer also reveals that Firestorm has the biggest ever Battle Royale map.

In terms of game modes, Battlefield 1‘s iconic War Stories will be making a return for V, and there will be four segments to pick from at launch.

If you’re more into online multiplayer, you’ll be pleased to know that there’s a new Grand Operations game mode. You will battle across four in-game days, with the final day allowing either team to win the match. The Grand Operations location will change every four weeks, so there’s no chance of getting bored.

There’s also no Premium Pass, but four chapters of DLC released across the first year.

If you’re a fan of Battlefield 1, then you’ll be pleased to know that the Premium Pass is going to be completely free as of next week.

Between the 11th and 18th of September, you’ll be able to claim a Premium Pass (and keep it permanently). What do you get with it? Well, premium maps, weapons, vehicles, operations and elite classes from the expansions, reports EuroGamer.

DICE said that the giveaway is to “capstone all the giveaways and rewards from the Road to Battlefield 5.”

It comes after the close of Battlefield 5’s open beta, which is available to the public between the 6th to 11th of September.

This comes after EA announced that the highly-anticipated Battlefield V has been delayed by a month.

The good news is that DICE has confirmed that the delay is down to feedback from its community, which means delaying the game could be the smartest decision to ensure players get the experience they deserve from day one.

Oskar Gabrielson, General Manager of DICE has stated on the EA website: “Today, we’re announcing that Battlefield V will have a new launch date – November 20, 2018. I wanted to give you a little bit of insight into how we arrived at this new date.

“Over the summer, we’ve had tens of thousands of players get their hands on the game…

“You have told us that you are seeing an increased focus on squad play come through, you are also feeling the difference in our revamped player movement and we are getting a lot of positive feedback for our improved weapons handling.

“You’ve also spurred us to make some meaningful improvements to the core gameplay experience…

“We believe we have one of the best Battlefield games ever on our hands.  A game that will deliver on an emotional journey through the return of unseen single player War Stories, a deep multiplayer experience, Battle Royale, along with our new live service, Tides of War – a journey across multiple theaters of WW2 and designed to keep our community together.

“With the Open Beta just around the corner, we are excited about the millions of you who will join us and experience the game. And we fully expect to see even more feedback coming our way.

“And that’s why we’re moving our launch date. We’re going to take the time to continue to make some final adjustments to core gameplay, and to ensure we really deliver on the potential of Tides of War.

“We know moving the launch date means that we all have to wait a little longer. But we’re going to take our time to make sure we get it right.

“Thank you for your continued passion and support.  We can’t wait to see you on the battlefield in just a few days.”
