Battlefield V Battle Royale Mode Confirmed

Dice and Electronic Arts have finally confirmed that Battlefield V is getting a Battle Royale mode after all.

Kicking off with a brand-new trailer for multiplayer mode of their upcoming story-based shooter Battlefield V during EA Play press conference at Los Angeles convention center, developer EA Dice and publisher Electronic Arts went on to reveal more details about the game from long-running Battlefield series. Dice also have confirmed shortly afterwards that a battle royale-style multiplayer mode will be included, which will be set in WW2 period as well as the main game.

Although they talked about many other notable features and details about the latest game of Battlefield series, EA have not spoken much about their inclusion of a battle royale mode in BFV yet. All we know for now is that its part of a post-launch live service called "Tides of War", which has core gameplay of the franchise, destruction, vehicles and other key aspects. They always tease for a game and then upon revealing, they tease for some more content to show off in future.

So, we hope EA has been saving up the best for later time and besides, the developers are still exploring this new experience to make it work in a World War II setting. Rival game Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 is also bringing battle royale to the table with their newly introduced mode called "Blackout". Perhaps one of them will charm the large-scale sandbox gameplay by letting a large amount of players take part but sadly, BFV is still stuck with their typical 64 player count cap from sixteen years ago.

Battle royale is such a cliché and currently a running trend as a sub-genre, pioneered by games like PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds and Fortnite. Because of these trendsetting games, many have been following the footsteps of a last-man standing shooter these days. Brendan 'PlayerUnknown' Greene, creator of PUBG has taken Twitter to express his response to this new announcement, welcoming Dice to the club with a short Tweet.

However, given their recent history of suing a several games that followed their style, people are skeptical at his response. A lot of people have sarcastically started pointing out how they have grown a tendency of suing other creators, instead of fixing their own game. Greene obviously did not appreciate their honesty and blocked or muted them out. Even if they take out Epic Games in court, a huge drop-off in their player base and loads of in-game issues are not something you can simply overlook like that.

BF5 can really turn heads with "Tides of War" battle royale mode in a WW2 background or maybe Black Ops 4 can do that. This seriously leaves the future of PUBG in question considering they have already lost half of their concurrent players in one month lately. First-person shooter game Battlefield V will launch worldwide for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on October 19. Pre-ordering the game on EA Access or Origin Access will let you start early from October 11.
