Last week, EA Play was held which brought us many new information and trailers of our favorite upcoming games by Electronic Arts. One of the big announcements made at EA Play was regarding Battlefield V which surprised us all.
It was revealed during EA Play that Battle Royale mode is making its way to the Battlefield V this year. Battle Royale is one of the most popular genres at the moment and almost every game is trying to implement it and before Battlefield, we saw Black Ops 4 coming up with the same announcement.
Also, there is no premium pass this year. Thanks to DualShockers who talked with the Senior Producer Lars Gustavsson, who talked in detail about the battle royale and premium pass.
Gustavsson said that it’s too early to talk about the number of players or the map size because the mode is still in development and team is focused on launch. Afterward, he revealed why DICE decided to include Battle Royale mode in their game.
“That it can be unique is probably what triggered our interest to start with. We were kind of inspired by what we played and lots of talks in the corridors about “we really should… We really should. We have so much in our Battlefield sandbox that would be such a good fit for this.” That’s where the conversations started, and it led up to the announcement”
Battle Royale mode won’t disappear the traditional experience from the game.
“It is super-exciting and for us, Battlefield can do so much. Of course, doing Royale doesn’t mean that the traditional experience or where we constantly push forward disappears. Grand Operations will be there. The whole post-launch experience where players can play together and not divided by the pass. We want to take players on that journey through the war.”
Gustavsson revealed that the team is super happy about the lack of paid DLC in the game.
“We have so many talented people who have built some of our best maps ever post-launch. Usually, we build a game with a mindset and everything, and then when we do post-launch we learn from that, and allow ourselves to “go deep” on this or that. It’s been kind of sad to see that we’ve splintered our community through the years and some times those experiences haven’t gotten all the love they deserve. So that’s why the team is super-happy to do this.”
Pre-order today to play Battlefield V when it officially releases on October 19th for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.
