Battlefield V: Tides of War Coming Tomorrow

Tides of War: Chapter 1 comes out with contents like Practice Range mode and War Story for Battlefield V on December 4.

Even though critics and fans were not much in favor of Battlefield V, the newest release of the first-person shooter game series Battlefield, EA DICE and Electronic Arts are keeping up their efforts in changing core gameplay fixes and slew of new contents.

Most of the player had a complaint about the single-player campaign being felt too short and incomplete even. Starting from December 4, EA is rolling the dice with their first batch of free content, Tides of War Chapter 1: Overture.

Long-time fans of the series are quite familiar with terms like "Premium Pass" and "Expansion Packs", which BV has gotten rid of completely to create a singular journey for all players to take part in together, without paying any extra buck for it.

This voyage is what they call Tides of War, a series of ongoing experience that introduce new gameplay and improvements to reinvent your World War II journey. There will be maps, modes, rewards and weekly events to keep up the flow.

If you want to get accustomed with the weapons and vehicles of the game, it would be logical if you take it to the Practice Range rather than choosing one of the regular multiplayer maps and then spend the rest of your day spawning other than fighting.

You can simply start with the Shooting Trial to practice your aim or Driving Trial, both of which will come in handy and as you score higher, you actually get better. So, switch up to different Shooting Exercises and hone your accuracy and then challenge yourself with an increased difficulty.

Overture brings in a brand-new single-player War Story, The Last Tiger featuring the tale of a solo Tiger I Tank crew. It takes place during the time when the nearly unstoppable Axis forces were slowly driving towards their ultimate defeat in WWII.

While trying to defend the homeland, a Veteran Tank Commander Peter Müller and his crew tries to take a last stand when Allied forces came knocking. At that point, he starts to question his own ideology that has brought him at that point. It's going to be interesting.

The stellar experience of Battlefield expands with the launch of massive mechanized war machines into a new map called Panzerstorm. In 1940, Axis forces takes on British defenses in Belgium, where you roll in among a land of damaged and abandoned tanks.

There are 17 of them to plough through the lands and forests of the town or you can just try your luck by going on foot. As you can find scopes for Infantry ambushes strong defenses and enemy trenches, keep an eye on an unsuspected air attack.

Till now, players had to be content with the limitation to change the look of soldiers and weapons. Overture cranks up the appearance tweaking by letting you change the exterior of their vehicles to make a sweet memory of your glorified victory.

These customizations however, are purely cosmetic and doesn't actually change or increase combat performance of the vehicles or whatsoever. Nevertheless, it lets you stand out among the crowd and help leave your mark behind, which is the actual point.

Chapter 1 from Tides of War also has weekly events to take you to the detailed gameplay of B5 and let you earn reward at the same time while you make progress for your company. As your Rank is improved by playing more and more, you get access to new items and cosmetics as well.

Overture is just the beginning of the oncoming surge of new content that DICE and Electronic Arts have planned up to release for Battlefield V players in the foreseeable future. With each new mode, maps and gameplay mechanics, the experience will never be the same.

Although the game didn't suffer from a micro-transition outrage on social media like Star Wars Battlefront II of last year from DICE, some fans have mocked their idea of including female soldiers in the WWII shooter that even hurt their pre-order sales.

Already packed with so many choices and modes to explore, Battlefield V also promises exciting post-launch content like battle royale mode Firestorm and brand-new Tides of War live service. With all that jammed into one title, EA actually makes BV a worthy successor of Battlefield 1.

Firestorm mode will debut on the third chapter of the planned content roadmap after the first two chapters; Overture and Lightning Strikes. The former features Panzerstorm map for a tank-based battle and new War Story, The Last Tiger along with vehicle customization.

The lead competitor for Battlefield V, Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 is already released and making buzz around the town with their very own battle royale mode Blackout. So, EA DICE and Electronic Arts probably do not want to risk anything and taking more time.

Because of Firestorm not being included in the recently closed Battlefield beta, we have less detail on the game mode. However, focused on World War II, the game hold much promises to shine and entertain all the eagerly waiting fans.

The story of Nordlys features a young resistance fighter that is set on 1943, during German occupation as she makes an ultimate sacrifice to save her family and her journey carries a weight not lesser than the weapons and ammo she carries around.

Tirailleur is centered on high-intensity warfare of Senegalese units from the French Colonial Forces and Under No Flag follows the journey of a young British criminal who tasked to blow up German air bases in North Africa, which he messed up badly.

Apparently, Battlefield 5 will play out the part of single player story quite differently than their World War I themed previous FPS title Battlefield 1. Vehicular combat is highlighted in both air and sea set on different locations during the conflict.

Most of the gameplay elements will go hand-in-hand with the multiplayer mode of the game. Meanwhile, watch actor Mark Strong (Shazam!, Kingsman: The Secret Service) lending voice for the story trailer and even dropping F-Bombs to make sure that players stick to their playing objective without deviating.

Everyone is talking about how the Blackout battle royale mode of CoD: BO4 is better than even the pioneer of the genre, PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds and quite excited to see what promises BF5 holds with their version in Firestorm mode.

Despite facing issues like historical accuracy, a controversy of using female characters that led to a social media stir that probably led to poor pre-order sales, Battlefield V still remains one of 2018's biggest titles regardless of what anyone else thinks about it.

Battlefield V Delay Hurts EA Stock Price

Electronic Arts' stock price sees sinks after developer DICE delays the release of upcoming Battlefield V.

When general manager Oskar Gabrielson of developer EA DICE announced earlier that their upcoming first-person shooter game Battlefield V has been delayed back to November 20 from previously scheduled October 19 for making some adjustment they thought necessary following the Closed Beta program, reactions has been mixed among the gaming community.

However, this one month delay has apparently caused a sudden drop at the stock price of publisher Electronic Arts.

In most cases, when a game is delayed for a month or two, it actually means good in terms of the studio having more time to polish the game before launch. Gabrielson stated that DICE will take this extra time to make some final adjustments to B5 gameplay and their newly introduced Tides of War live service.

While this one will offer players an immersive experience of war from an all-new perspective, several new events will be arranged later for the whole community to enjoy together.

Regardless of what they want the public to believe, EA was carefully moving their release window for Battlefield V from competing with other titles like rival title Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 and Red Dead Redemption 2.

While this may not upset players much because they are only a few days away from Open Beta on September 6, their sales projections for this fiscal year are lowered as a result of this move. An expected net booking of $5.55 billion has reduced to $5.2 billion, says CNBC.

By Thursday morning, EA's shares have dropped down to almost 10 percent upon the month-long delay announcement. Analysts suggested a weak sales number for the crowded window of October, which has impacted to the decision that led to a price drop of stocks.

The current release date will only have BV competing against Bethesda's Fallout 76 when it launches on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. So, as they take this hit right now, it may help them in long run to sell more copies.

Battlefield V Delayed to November

Developer EA DICE has announced a new release date of November 20 for their upcoming game Battlefield V.

Originally scheduled to release on October 19, 2018 for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, first-person shooter game Battlefield V has now been delayed and pushed back to November 20 by developer EA DICE and publisher Electronic Arts.

After they showed off the game at E3 2018 press conference in June and then recently at Gamescom 2018, a Closed Alpha session was arranged this summer for the latest Battlefield title and the decision to make delay is an apparent result of that.

According to their statement, the developers actually need the extra time to polish the game even more and make some adjustments to ore gameplay experience.

In past, they were more focused on the major battles but this time, they are working more on new aspects of BFV that are not popular or renowned among the players. DICE claims that the newly debuted Tides of War mode will change the course of battle and everyone will witness that when Open Beta launches on September 6.

Despite whatever DICE expects everyone to believe, skeptical fans points out that the real reason of this sudden delay is being competition. We know that pre-order sales report of Battlefield V is looking pretty bad and they simply do not want to struggle with their biggest competitor Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 from Treyarch for sales, which will come out on October 12.

They are also avoiding crossing paths with upcoming anticipating titles like Assassin's Creed Odyssey, Fallout 76, Hitman 2 and Red Dead Redemption 2.
