Battlefield V Battle Royale Firestorm Coming in 2019

EA DICE has recently announced that Battlefield V will get its Battle Royale mode "Firestorm" in 2019.

November 20, 2018 is now less than a month away and upcoming first-person shooter game Battlefield V from developer EA DICE and publisher Electronic Arts is awaiting launch on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One worldwide.

Previously, the game was scheduled to release on October 19 but were pushed back saying the studio needs time polishing the game and work on Tides of War mode. If that has hurt your anticipation, here comes another one; the game's battle royale mode, Firestorm won't come until 2019.

DICE has recently laid out their plans for post-launch content of the new Battlefield title, which has the surprise reveal of its anticipated battle royale mode Firestorm not launching until March 2019 and no further details on the topic.

This mode will bring a 64-person action experience to players and will allow four-player squads. As a ring of fire closing in on engaged combatants, they will fight for their lives while scavenging for weapons and ride vehicles until the last man or squad remains standing.

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 latter is all about Combined Arms and Squad Conquest for all we know for now. Overture launches within two weeks after the debut of Battlefield 5 and Lightning Strikes will likely to drop from January to March before Chapter 3.

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.
