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.

Anthem Gameplay Details

After long period of waiting, Bioware and Electronic Arts finally released more than a trailer and offered details on gameplay of Anthem.

Long after the first unveiling of the game, developer Bioware and publisher Electronic Arts finally released an official trailer for their open-world action role-playing game Anthem. The game is a main talking topic at E3 2018 press conference as it is coming from the same developers who previously worked on games like Mass Effect and Dragon Age. To satisfy many eagerly waiting fans, some gameplay details and plot elements of the title were revealed as well.

The exciting gameplay footage offers the closer look players have been waiting for all along, following the new cinematic trailer. We already know that it sets up in a dystopian future where society has fallen because "God" has left them but humanity has found shelter. Freelancers among humans are trying to save their peers from a rival group called the Dominion. They are after a force known as "Anthem of Creation" to destroy whatever remains of civilization.

The game allows you to take part with three of your teammates to go and fight against Dominion. Freelancers wearing Javelin exosuits have four different types; Colossus, Interceptor, Ranger and Storm. Just as their name suggests, Colossus is good with hitting hard, Interceptor is lightning-fast, Ranger is versatile in features and Storm is a destructive force. Despite each of these suits have distinct nature; all of them are loaded with enough firepower to take down major obstacles.

You and three of your teammates can pick the one that suits your own style of approaching a mission or just go with the wind. These Javelins are up for some major customization, whether that is gear or guns. As you make sweet progress along the way, every kit and weapon will be unlocked, which means you don't have to buy loot boxes for advancement. There will be micro-transaction but the contents are strictly just some cosmetic items and skins. No pay-to-win mechanism there.

As a multiplayer action role-playing game, it will share a world with whole community of players. It could be night time or day, a stormy weather or clear sky, everyone playing online will experience that simultaneously. The world around you will never be the same and always be on constant change. Bioware has plans of providing post-launch content to expand the story further and maybe arranging time-limited events for everyone to join in to have some good time together.

Anthem release date is currently set for February 22, 2019 when it will see release on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. The game seems to be a fun-ride, which will deliver a unique gameplaying experience mostly when played in teams, because the developers made it to play as group. That way, it is more rewarding for gamers but that doesn't mean you can't ditch a squad and join solo. Although many people are already trying to draw its resemblance with Destiny, it sure is different in many aspects and that will be settled once it comes out.

Battlefield V Multiplayer Trailer

EA launches Battlefield V’s first multiplayer gameplay trailer featuring the unmatched intensity of all-out war.

It was only two weeks ago when developer EA Dice and publisher Electronic Arts revealed their upcoming first-person shooter game Battlefield V in a live-stream reveal event, slated for October 19 release. During their EA Play press conference at Los Angeles convention center, EA made a presentation on few of their upcoming titles and luckily, BFV got its fair share as well. The newest trailer for the latest game of Battlefield series has just debuted with lots of action from World War II era.

Check out the brand-new Battlefield V official multiplayer trailer taken from gameplay footage, showcasing some powerful battle moments.




The clip above shows a lot of cinematic aspects meshed with some gameplay videos at the same time. Players now have a new perspective at this war scenario and some of the key environment mechanics like sliding after running is focused in it. One of the multiplayer maps had a small town setup and "Airborne" mode is also hinted at. This one will be a part of Grand Operations, which is an upgraded and extreme version of Operations mode from Battlefield 1.

Grand Operations are designed to raise the stakes of bringing those iconic WW2 experiences, Dice made Airborne an exclusive mode to it. Parachuting into the middle of a conflict to forefront an assault is a specialty to this mode. An attack team will try to destroy a couple of artillery cannons which the defenders will try to avert. If you are former, try and locate bombs with your team but if you belong to the latter, place your towable weapons and anti-air guns to mount your defense.

One more important mechanics introduced is a reviving system, which is new to the series and one of the changes that will evolve combat as we know it. When one of your teammate is down, you can drag him to safety and then revive them. In crucial situations, this sure will come in handy. BFV was one of the early entries from E3 2018 games and though it is already confirmed, a battle royale mode like PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds or Fortnite is still not shown in the clip.

Belonging to a long-running story-based shooter series, Battlefield V will be available to play on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. By now, we already know that BF5 is set on the period of Second World War and it sets apart from rest of the franchise by moving forward with new features like overall player customization and adding female characters in the mix for the first time, which immediately drew some fan backlash, which the game's developers defends saying, they are here to stay.

Anthem E3 Trailer

BioWare and EA finally showcased its shared world action-RPG of Anthem during EA Play, coming in February 2019.

After Mass Effect: Andromeda saw an unexpected sales drop in 2017; developer Bioware and publisher Electronic Arts effectively killed the Mass Effect series. All of their efforts are then invested into the Anthem game project, which also happens to be one of the top 10 most anticipated video games of 2018. We've been promised to get some glimpse at the game in development for some time after it was teased back at E3 2014 but had no luck so far until now.

In its E3 2018 reveal, open-world action role-playing game Anthem unveils a brand-new cinematic trailer that will give the fans enough reasons to wait some more till it releases.




RELATED: Anthem Gameplay Details

This expansive trailer offers a much better look and understanding of Anthem game, which is set in a futuristic dystopia. Civilization is ruined long ago but humanity still managed to save itself by surrounding some sort of wall around. Bio-mechanical extra-terrestrial creatures are rampaging everywhere and a small band of human survivors forming a fraction known as Freelancers wearing Javelin exosuit fights back in groups against those hostiles a savage environment.

Judging by its action-based gameplay, it is safe to assume that Bioware is finally stepping out of their comfort zone to create something extraordinary. Some are even saying that Anthem is going straight for Destiny's throat but we need to consider that both are two different types of game. After fighting long period in development hell, we sure are glad to see the game finally coming out of closet and hope that EA does not mess it up post-launch with some of their corporate agenda!

Anthem is an online multiplayer action role-playing game from Bioware and EA, which is set to release in February 22, 2019 for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. While many players are trying to compare the game to Mass Effect and Dragon Age, it actually departs itself from any past influence of studio's previous projects to create a persona of its own. Another video featuring gameplay details is about to drop soon and by the time the game releases, we will likely be seeing more footage of Anthem as well.

E3 2018 News and Rumors

World’s best gaming expo E3 2018 is s almost here. So, news, rumors and trailers on games are here as well.

The annual grand gaming show is returning to Los Angeles convention center with the biggest gaming news you can expect. As that moment approaches, we are eagerly waiting for a bag full of E3 2018 games that are waiting to be announced officially. We are so close to E3 2018 now and for the past few months; we've been bombarded with news of latest leaks in weirdest way possible and we got the most number of them in last few weeks. On Saturday, June 12, all conferences and shows will start off and will run till June 14.

Press conferences at E3 2018 will be running from June 9 with EA Play briefing and then Nintendo will be concluding on June 12 with their seminar. We expect announcements and appearances from big companies like Bethesda Softworks, Devolver Digital, Microsoft Studios, Sony, Square Enix and Ubisoft as well. We have tons of news heading our way for upcoming titles from Triple A games list awaiting their release this year.




RELATED: Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 Revealed

Activision at E3 2018
Publisher company Activision typically keeps a pace of releasing games that are able to satisfy the gamers but no one really ever surprised by any of their release announcements. Obviously we are getting more detailed look at Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 or maybe an update on where they are with Spyro. A possible look at the next Destiny 2 expansion wouldn't be too much to ask since their Year 2 reveal is marked for June 5. Releases from Blizzard division will probably be saved up for a later occasion.




RELATED: Fallout 76 Announced

Bethesda at E3 2018
This publisher has the tendency of making announcement of new games shortly before their release. Though Bethesda E3 lineup may not excite a hell lot of people and they are sort of new to these press conferences and showcasing upcoming projects, they do have a change of pace. Games revealed at E3 2018 by them will be some titles that are not going to drop very soon. News of Rage 2 from Avalanche Studios was leaked and eventually it was revealed last month while promising for more on E3.

RELATED: Doom 2 May Be Announced at E3 2018

Latest installment of their post-apocalyptic role-playing series, Fallout 76 is already revealed and some new gameplay trailer is on the way and we may finally know if the latter is focused on multiplayer. Does a declaration for The Elder Scrolls 6 or Dishonored 3 sounds too far-fetched? Or maybe Doom 2 from id Software? Yes, the kind of does but then again, rumors heavily suggests of something like that likely to happen. However, we certainly can hope for The Elder Scrolls Online to get a new expansion.




RELATED: Star Wars Battlefront II Micro-Transactions Outrage

Electronic Arts at E3 2018
Branded as "Worst Company in America" in 2012 and 2013 wasn't enough, Mass Effect: Andromeda from Electronic Arts failed terribly last year, their development studio Visceral Games was shut down and then there was the infamous micro-transaction outrage regarding Need for Speed Payback and Star Wars Battlefront II, which has them being accused of trying to introduce some sort of gambling mechanics into video games. Legal questions were raised for having such progression in one of their Triple A games.

RELATED: Battlefield V Reveal Trailer

At EA Play annual press conference, a demo of Anthem will most likely be displayed by Mass Effect team for media. We already watched Battlefield V reveal event to witness how they are carefully avoiding controversial loot box model and are eager to see more from BFV. Instead, they are going to offer cosmetic items and skins for weapon that does not provide any in-game advantage. FIFA 19 hasn’t officially been revealed yet, so hopes are up for that one too while we expect it to drop on September, 2018.




RELATED: Xbox Game Pass Adds Classic Star Wars Games

Microsoft at E3 2018
Through a wave of change in management, Microsoft is getting readied for joining the competition. Adding 4K support for Xbox One X was an advancement that only expanded new opportunities for their consoles with Xbox Play Anywhere initiative, building a bridge between PC and Xbox One. They might stage some more features of their devices and upcoming programs planned for future at E3. In terms of new games, they aren't probably bringing any of their big original franchises.

RELATED: State of Decay 2 May Come to Steam

What we have gathered is that Microsoft may actually reveal three new Gears of War titles, one of which is a usual sequel, another is Halo Wars type of real-time strategy and the last one is a Battle Royale game. 2011’s NBA Jam: On Fire Edition from Xbox 360 may get an update but otherwise, there are no possibilities of a new title from NBA Jam series. They clearly are not in for investing much time and budget in new projects these days. Lastly, we would like to get a release date for Crackdown 3.




RELATED: Super Smash Bros. Comes to Nintendo Switch

Nintendo at E3 2018
Earlier in January 2018, Nintendo Direct Mini teased the fans with so many upcoming titles waiting to be released this year and many already have made the jump. Metroid Prime 4, The World Ends with You – Final Remix and Yoshi has chances of showing up alongside a Pokémon game. Since its official, a gameplay trailer for Switch version of Super Smash Bros. will be much appreciated. An HD version of Mother 3 can get us cheered up like many fans as well. Other than these, we have nothing on them because of their very tight way of maintaining internal secrecy.




RELATED: Death Stranding Teaser Trailer

Sony at E3 2018
Sony apparently has an upper hand in gaming market currently following God of War's release, which set records for selling on PlayStation 4 that surpasses any number Microsoft could come up with PC or Xbox One at the same time. They also have sold more consoles than their rival and dominating the market. Sony's upcoming high-profile Death Stranding from Hideo Kojima's own company Kojima Productions, The Last of Us Part 2 and Marvel’s Spider-Man stands out as one of the most anticipated games of 2018 already.

RELATED: Days Gone Delayed to 2019

Their Days Gone and Ghost of Tsushima are also in line to take us all for a deep dive. Hopes of hearing about a sequel for Bloodborne and Horizon Zero Dawn are high from many players but chances are very slim. Sony’s conference may feature some new CoD: BO4 footage considering their DLC exclusivity on PS4. MediEvil Remastered or Syphon Filter remake have hooked us on some hope but some of them may remain unannounced for now and saved up for conferences at their own events like Paris Games Week and PlayStation Experience.




RELATED: Shadow of the Tomb Raider Trailer

Square Enix at E3 2018
In past, Square Enix and Konami used to rule at E3 but sadly they both are a dimmed shadow of what they once were. Speaking of shadows, the former have their focus on Shadow of the Tomb Raider from developer Crystal Dynamics now, which may bring them into limelight again. A reveal trailer for the game is expected at their E3 Showcase. Oh and let's not forget about their action role-playing project Kingdom Hearts III as it has an official release date waiting for announcement.

RELATED: Final Fantasy VII Remake Comes Before 2023

After long debacle and debates, their spokesperson revealed earlier that Final Fantasy VII Remake will come any time before 2023, meaning they are not in any hurry with that one. Some update on untitled Avengers Project with Marvel would be nice as we never heard anything else after 2017. With release of Final Fantasy XV and Nier: Automata in recent years, they are slowly trying to restore their former glory but time will only tell whether they would succeed or not.




RELATED: The Division 2 Announced

Ubisoft at E3 2018
Instead of arriving at the grad-party with flashy new range of video games, Ubisoft seems more comfortable to hang out with their old titles and keep those franchises alive by providing regular downloadable content or arranging seasonal events to support the cause. We have For Honor and Rainbow Six Siege to prove that theory. Fingers crossed for a brand-new trailer on Skull & Bones, The Crew 2 and The Division 2, because we know that Beyond Good and Evil 2 will eventually join the parade.

RELATED: Assassin's Creed Odyssey Confirmed

Speculations are pretty damn high for a new Splinter Cell sequel, which can easily become one of the Triple A games 2018 has to offer and who better can do that except for Sam Fisher? We still haven't catch our breath following the shocking revelation of Assassin's Creed Odyssey, a successor sequel to Assassin's Creed Origins. Following a surprise leak from one of their merchandise for the game on a French site named Jeuxvideo, Ubisoft swiftly acted by dropping a teaser that let us know it will be set in Greece.

RELATED: Serious Sam 4: Planet Badass Teaser Trailer

One of the few other things from our bucket-lists is clearly a trailer or gameplay of the much talked about Resident Evil 2 Remake from Capcom. A release date on YS Net’s Shenmue 3 alongside a gameplay trailer and new clip on CD Projekt Red’s Cyberpunk 2077 will do just fine. This upcoming open-world RPG has the potential of becoming the most anticipated PC games 2018 will probably see while it also rules on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, much like The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt from the same developers.

As we all are very excited for the arrival of E3, we surely cannot wait for some of those biggest E3 rumors come true and keep you all updated as much as we can.

Battlefield 2018 Trailer Coming Soon

Rumors were flying around about Electronic Arts and EA Dice working on the next Battlefield title for some time and then it was revealed that at EA Play 2018, the revelation of the next Battlefield experience is about to happen. In 2017, Dice had their hands full with the release of Star Wars Battlefront II and looks like they have focused all of their attention towards the acclaimed first-person shooter series that already got a soft reboot with WWI-themed Battlefield 1.

Last year, Electronic Arts made the announcement of bringing the next Battlefield title at the end quarter of 2018 in collaboration with EA Dice. Although no official details were spilled out yet, the game is supposed to be set during WWII era according to various rumors. If that is the case, then the series will return to its roots just like publisher company Activision did with their latest release Call of Duty: WWII. Or it can also be the long anticipated Battlefield: Bad Company 3.

While all the speculation was hyping up about the next Battlefield game, Randy Evans of EA Dice’s senior video & media director have taken Twitter to announce that the untitled Battlefield 2018 trailer is on the way.



Now we know for sure that we indeed are getting a peak at Battlefield sequel very soon and that could probably be within a few weeks. As EA did it in the past, a better look at the game may be unveiled at the 2018 Game Developers Conference following the Battlefield 2018 reveal trailer. By the time they make the full gameplay reveal of the game, we might need to wait until E3 2018.

Battlefield series started its journey back in 2002 with Battlefield 1942, when the game was released for Mac and PC. Having a great history of the series, whatever EA and Dice are planning to bring us to the table, we are hoping the game will do a great fan-service. Because after the nightmarish experience with Star Wars Battlefront II loot box controversy and being replaced by Disney to make Star Wars games, Electronic Arts and EA Dice are badly in need for a point to move on.

EA Play Brings Next Battlefield Game

For the past few months we've been hearing news flying around about Electronic Arts and EA Dice bringing an all-new entry to their first-person shooter Battlefield franchise in 2018, which was finally confirmed. Since Battlefield 1 is based on the era of World War 1, we only wonder what setting the upcoming title would choose. Reportedly, Electronic Arts is eventually going to bring the next Battlefield title to EA Play at E3 2018 convention.

Back in the days, EA was one of the most popular game publishers and made E3 great for everyone. But now that they have become more self-centered in the recent years, they created an event of their own. This way they can bring their newest or upcoming titles directly to their customers directly and sometime fans get the chance to try out these games months or years before they are available in stores for everyone.

Although, EA mostly brings out the typical EA Sports games to EA Play at Los Angeles each year along with a few bunch of their other projects for players to try out for free, they occasionally brings out some very good games as well. Respawn Entertainment’s Titanfall 2 and EA Dice’s Star Wars Battlefront II from last year's event was impressive. Looks like this year, EA will finally showcase their upcoming Battlefield game at EA Play and would make it official for good.

EA announced that at EA Play 2018, the next Battlefield experience will be unveiled for all and there will be exclusive peak at BioWare’s Anthem, which was recently delayed. From June 9, Saturday, they will launch the event at Hollywood Palladium and will run till June 11, the day before the E3 2018. Tickets for EA Play will be out during spring and to ensure that everyone on board has a better experience to access their favorite games at the occasion; EA will implement a better ticketing system.

While the announcement of EA Dice bringing next Battlefield game at EA Play is pretty exciting, the community of fans is still riddled about what title it's going to be? Currently, the internet has dubbed the newest entry of the series as either Battlefield 2018 or Battlefield 5. Some also suggested that the title might be Battlefield: Bad Company 3 and as par other reports, the game can be a title focused on WWII.

With the rise to fame of the new battle royale shooter games like Fortnite Battle Royale and PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds, EA’s CEO Andrew Wilson is seemingly very enthusiastic about this popular genre and probably looking for something that can even be something like Battlefield: Battle Royale. Whatever the game turn out to be, it would probably be available on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One with multiplayer option. We can only wait and watch as it all unfolds at EA Play 2018.
