Everything you need to know about Battlefield V

Lynette PayneMay 24, 2018

Electronic Arts finally took the veil of Battlefield V.

This last-player-standing concept appears to be Battlefield's take on the popular battle royale trend now running through gaming. A debut trailer gives players their first look at the game, which is set during World War II and its "unseen locations".

Battlefield V is now available for preorder. Battlefield V will offer more customization than any other title in the franchise's history, making it even easier for players to step into the shoes of their soldiers. That's because technology has advanced to the point where game developers can do so much more than a decade ago.

Mind you, this isn't Battle Royale set in World War II. The latter features multiple matches that span days, with the outcome of one match affecting the next. But Battlefield V takes everything to a whole new level with a new progression system that applies to everything, including you, the player, but also the weapons, vehicles, soldier class, and chapter. It sounds like Combined Arms will also have you scrounging for resources as you make it to objectives, raising the stakes further as you need to decide if you can push through or extract early.

The chapter of war is also an interesting idea.

"It's a brand-new experience and still everything you love about Battlefield - where every fight is different and brought to life across unexpected theatres of war". That's right, you'll get to experience war from a historical perspective, regardless of what side you play. "Prepare for multiplayer that spans multiple maps and modes, meaning you'll experience more varied and exciting Battlefield moments". As well, Deluxe buyers will get early access on October 16. Interestingly there will be no premium pass, all players will have access to the same maps and modes, keeping the community unified as they progress through Battlefield V. There will not be paid for "loot boxes", just some cosmetic items to purchase in game for currency/cash. All of these will count towards your progression and upgrades as well, in case you were wondering.

Battlefield 5 launches worldwide on the 19th of October.

As suspected, the setting for Battlefield V will be World War 2, but instead of focusing on the most famous battles from that conflict - Normandy, Berlin, Dunkirk - developer DICE is seeking to focus on the untold stories set in the unexplored corners.
