Battlefield V is Getting Battle Royale Mode After All

Nichole VegaJun 11, 2018

The move to add a Battle Royale mode to the beloved "Battlefield" franchise was divisive among fans when EA announced it on Saturday afternoon at its annual "EA Play" event in Los Angeles. We don't know enough about Battlefield V's Royale mode to make a judgment, but we sure know Blackout sounds cool. Furthermore, the highly requested Battle Royale feature will be coming to the game post-launch, but fitted with Battlefield-style team and vehicle mechanics.

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.

Call of Duty: Black Ops 4's new Blackout mode has been shown off to us a little more extensively than Battlefield V's has, and we know a bit more about it as a result. Instead of asking players to pay extra to get new maps, every update is now free, and developer DICE is focusing on cosmetic items as a way to generate revenue from the game as an ongoing platform. Meanwhile the most popular battle royale games will put 100 players on one map.
