Battlefield V Firestorm Battle Royale Gameplay Trailer

Firestorm Battle Royale mode will bring new aspects to last-man-standing shooter and comes to Battlefield 5 on March 25.

Though first-person shooter Battlefield V from developer EA DICE and publisher Electronic Arts didn't fare well when it was released back in November 2018 for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, many hoped for the post-launch content to change that.

Battlefield fans were hoping that upcoming Battle Royale mode Firestorm would really shake things up for good and we even had an early peak at it from a leaked footage. We saw an official introductory video of what it is about and now there is more.

A more detailed gameplay trailer has been dropped by EA for players to know more about what they are getting into.

We saw four player squads dropping in parachutes from above and then immediately forced to engage in a combat within a massive sandbox where they all race against a deadly ring of fire quickly consuming everything on its path of destruction.

Firestorm mostly embraces different gunplay mechanics of BV along with combat vehicles, destructible surroundings and impressive visuals. It offers you a wide array of different rides at launch, including a tractor with mounted cannon on its back.

Whether you are roaming on land, sky or water, with or without assistance, always have a look out for someone trying to ambush on you even if you are in an armored vehicle, because enemies can always fire up some anti-vehicle weapon at you.

You will also be looking for common, rare and epic weapons throughout the map while sometime even came across strongboxes or safes to get the best loots available but chances are, there will be some risks of going after them as well.

Struggle for survival is real in this World War I era based last-man-standing shooter title but there are some powerful land vehicles stored in lockup houses that would take some effort to open before you get some advantage over your opponents.

Basically, this gameplay trailer is an extended version of the official Firestorm reveal trailer for Battlefield V that DICE released about a week ago with detailed definition for things and stuffs, with additional footage capturing the intensity of the 64 players Battle Royale mode.

Battlefield V Firestorm Official Reveal

Official Firestorm reveal trailer for Battle Royale mode of Battlefield V heralds the release date to be March 25.

Even though standard Battle Royale games offer a 100 player stand-off to death, developer EA DICE and publisher Electronic Arts will allow only 64 to compete in Firestorm mode of their latest first-person shooter game Battlefield V.

A statement issued back in October 2018 announced that players will not receive battle royale mode until March 2019 and now, March 25 is revealed to be the release date for it to all BFV players worldwide via a new trailer dropped by EA.

Check out the brand-new official reveal trailer for Firestorm, featuring brief battle royale action sequences from Battlefield 5.




RELATED: Battlefield V: Tides of War Chapter 2: Lighting Strikes Release Date

The trailer starts with a typical style for last-man-standing shooter where we see soldiers jumping off planes in parachute to their destined battleground and help each other out to bring them to their feet, only to notice other squads to drop nearby.

Then they each head to nearby establishments to seek cover and weapons, followed by a shootout between two parties. Bombs starts dropping from above when a red flare is shot at the house next to barn filled with a rival group.

RELATED: Battlefield V Player Visibility Issues Experiment

The gang who arrived first is now out in the open and one of their members finds a tractor that they use to ram through opposing force to break out of the barn they were in. To evade an ever imposing ring of fire on them, they all hop in a helicopter found close at hand.

Moving to a new land to fight, they come across an enemy boat and one of them is lost in the ensuing gunfire. By the time they reach to ground, tanks are deployed, dams are destroyed, forests are burnt and the fire is closing in quicker.

The fight reaches to a climax and the leader of the group draws out his melee weapon to charge at an enemy when he is out of ammo and another of his squad member bites the dust while one of his teammates attempts to shoot that man by targeting him via rifle scope.

Introducing Battlefield's biggest map ever from DICE team, Firestorm lets player engage solo or in 4-person squads as they collect loots and unlock vehicles to ride to victory parade aside from calling in V-1 flying bomb for reinforcements.

RELATED: Battlefield V Battle Royale Firestorm Footage Leaked

Despite a lot of complaints against the developers for failing to live up to expectation and release of an early leaked footage of Battle Royale mode, Firestorm trailer still manages to shine and promise players a great experience that would probably help them redeem themselves.

Set on World War II era, Battlefield V is currently available for everyone to play on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Though it may sound a little disappointing but those who want to play in duos will have to wait till April 2019 for the mode to finally arrive on the game.

Battlefield V Battle Royale Firestorm Footage Leaked

Scheduled to come in spring 2019, video of battle royale mode "Firestorm" for Battlefield V has been leaked online.

Ever since first-person shooter title Battlefield V from developer EA DICE and publisher Electronic Arts is launched on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One last year, it has been in series of troubles but players are still waiting for some of its post-launch content.

After waiting for months, fans are finally getting an early look at the game's battle royale mode, Firestorm through a leaked tutorial video slightly ahead of an official reveal, which was set to arrive at some point on March 2019.

Below is the actual leaked footage of "Firestorm" Battle Royale mode of Battlefield 5 that has found its way online, offering an early glimpse.




RELATED: Battlefield V Player Visibility Issues Experiment

Though many already knows that Firestorm is designed as a last-man-standing shooter on World War II premise where 64 player will try to hunt each other down for the ultimate glory but there will be twist on traditional Battle Royale fashion.

According to the leaked BV clip, you can jump into the middle of action after picking from Solo, Duo and Squads options. Scavenging for items and weapons will begin as soon as people are dropped on the open-world map in parachute.

RELATED: Battlefield V Multiplayer Trailer

Depending on where you chose to land, availability of loot would vary from their quantity and type. As landing spots, urban areas will reward players with more gear but would also present great challenges as everyone else would be after them.

Throughout the map, you will come across objectives and safes that will lead you to combat vehicles, rare items and reinforcements. These are the tools with advantages that one needs to change the course of fight and secure victory in the end.

RELATED: Battlefield V Delay Hurts EA Stock Price

Weapon categories are divided into three different tiers; Common, Rare and Epic, all requiring unique ammo and not much of them can be carried. So, inventory management skill would come in handy or you can share loot with your teammates until you find a backpack to extend slots.

Class specific perks are not a part of Firestorm battle royale mode as you and your squad is fighting for life. Downed players can still use their sidearm while being revived by some allies but it would only work as long as you don't bleed out completely.

RELATED: Battlefield V Single Player Story Trailer

In overall comparison, B5 apparently made many improvements to the genre that would hopefully get enough traction and responding to the original Reddit leak, EA took Twitter to state that there are more to come than what we just saw here. Can't wait to find that out!

Although there are no respawning like Apex Legends and no 100-player support like we have in Fortnite or Playerunknown's Battlegrounds, Battlefield V is adding their own unique takes to make Battle Royale mode great again.

Battlefield V Player Visibility Issues Experiment

YouTuber Jackfrags exhibits how Battlefield 5 allows you to hide in plain sight in hilariously ridiculous manner.

The latest in the line of Battlefield first-person shooter titles, Battlefield V was a game from developer EA DICE and publisher Electronic Arts that players were looking forward to with high regards but it came out greatly disappointing for both fans and studios.

Aside from failing to receive a decent amount of pre-order for the title and getting into controversy of enraging fans on social media, BV has its fair share of issues like player visibility problem that even bugs the die-hard series fans.

Below is a video from YouTube channel Jackfrags, where he exposed just how the game allows you to be invisible. Don't believe us? See for yourselves.

Before the guy got killed for the first time in the clip, he has shown just how difficult it is for some players to see others and he ran past the guy next to him to prove that and even sat next to him while someone else pass him by before being shot down by someone else.

All of this happened in a real live server where he had a hard time getting noticed by enemies running around him. On his next try, he goes into the middle of a conflict and idly sits there to prove that people actually cannot see foes coming at them at times.

RELATED: Battlefield V Battle Royale "Firestorm" Coming in 2019

He goes into the Devastation map to conduct an experiment by lying in open or down by come corridor only to see everyone running past him ignoring his existence as if his character has vanished from sight. We promise that you won't believe your eyes when you will see it.

Earlier, the developer made adjustments for time-to-kill values to make it less punishing for normies that led to many seasoned players start voicing concerns over the change and the game suffered a huge hit to the player count.

RELATED: Battlefield V Multiplayer Trailer

DICE has just rolled out their second major B5 expansion "Lighting Strikes" for free last week along with resolve for few gameplay issues but not resolving some basic issues like player visibility isn't going to help them much in the long-run.

Of course, the team behind Battlefield 5 has done a great service to fans by getting rid of the "Premium Pass" from game and moving away from their games-as-service philosophy was highly appreciated but they have to fix the game first to deal with the growing community frustration.

RELATED: Battlefield V Won't Have Premium Pass

Studios involved to the game handled it so poorly that it couldn't make it to the list of best-selling games for year 2018, which is the first time in the Battlefield series history but Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 on the other hand has made it to the list with ease.

In any way, Battlefield V is not a bad game but studio approach for fixing those issues from DICE and EA was so poor that many hardcore player of this online shooter are abandoning ship. It is not a question whether or not they can; it's a question of when they would focus on the problem?

Both Squad Conquest and Rush mode returns only for a limited time, so you shouldn't probably want to miss them out. New multiplayer experience of Grand Operations offers to relive some historical battles that took place in Belgium on several maps and modes.

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.

RELATED: Battlefield V Battle Royale Mode Confirmed

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.

RELATED: Battlefield V Battle Royale "Firestorm" Coming in 2019

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.

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.

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.

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.

World War II-themed shooter game BF5 is introducing features like dragging teammates or help them heal, to make sure that they come up with the best Battlefield games ever made. The game already won awards for "Best Multiplayer Game" during E3 and Gamescom, which tells us that they really have aced their multiplayer mode this time.

Considering that fact, hopefully waiting a little longer will not be a problem. Besides, in few days we can find out what they are up to in Open Beta.

Among all those gunfire and explosions, soldiers were busy fighting each other on streets of Dutch city. Aside from gunfights, melee combat will have its unique place when players will come face to face with enemies. Developers have previously disclosed about some engaging "War Story" campaign modes that will probably shape up the outcome of war. Nearing the end of the video, what we momentarily saw can be the exclusive first-look at the much-anticipated Battle Royale mode.

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.
