Battlefield V announced
Next entry in the shooter franchise will launch this October, no DLC Season Pass planned
DICE and Electronic Arts have announced Battlefield V, taking players to World War 2.
Battlefield V multiplayer promises a sandbox environment that portrays the battles of World War 2. Players’ soldiers can now tow stationary weapons, build fortifications and repair war-torn structures. Whether dragging a squad mate to safety or shooting a grenade out of the sky, there are new mechanics across the field.
The Company allows players to create and customize their soldiers, weapons and vehicles. Modes like the 64-player Conquest return, with the game’s multiplayer culminating in Grand Operations, a new live, event-based experience within Tides of War. These multimap, multi-mode dynamic events take players through large battles to the final objective.
The single-player campaign mode from Battlefield 1, War Stories, returns for Battlefield V. Taking place during World War 2, players will visit Norwegian landscapes as a young Norwegian resistance fighter or come ashore into the desert heat of North Africa - and more.
Tides of War is DICE’s new approach to live services. There will be no premium pass, and all players will reportedly have access to the same maps and modes. Themed experiences will include events and new ways to play like Grand Operations, while also unlocking rewards such as weapons and vehicles customizations.
Battlefield V will be available worldwide October 19th on Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and Origin for PC. Those that order the Battlefield V Deluxe Edition will get access three days early on October 16, while EA Access and Origin Access members will be able to jump into the Play First Trial on October 11. Players that pre-order any edition of the game with the Battlefield V Enlister Offer will get early access to the Open Beta and other in-game benefits including soldier customization options, access to Special Assignments starting at launch week and immediate access to five weapons to use in Battlefield 1.
