Battlefield V open beta is a week away from starting and given that Nvidia has partnered up with DICE, Nvidia has rolled out the game ready driver, Nvidia 399.07 WHQL, for the upcoming open beta for Battlefield V.
Aside from bringing support and optimizations for Battlefield V open beta, Nvidia 399.07 WHQL driver also brings optimizations for F1 2018, Immortal: Unchained, Pro Evolution Soccer 2019 and Strange Brigade. Check out the full release notes here.
Battlefield V open beta will start for everyone on September 6, however, those who have pre-ordered the game will get early access to the Battlefield V open beta on September 4, 2018.
Battlefield V Open beta will feature 64 players Conquest and Grand Operations game modes.
In conquest mode, players will play Rotterdam Map or Arctic Fjord map and will fight for the control of the key locations on the map.
The Grand Operations is a “modular narrative experience” which has been inspired by historical events in which players actions will have a direct impact on the next round.
Players will also get to play a chapter of Tides of War which is a five-part journey through World War 2.
Those who complete the Tides of War chapter in Battlefield V open beta will get an exclusive in-game Dog Tag at launch.
Speaking of the game, Battlefield is the main competitor to Call Of Duty and while Battlefield 1 was ahead of its competition but, things are very different for the upcoming Battlefield V.
According to report, Battlefield V pre-orders are 85% behind Black Ops 4.
According to analyst Doug Creutz, Battlefield V will be a serious disappointment and is lagging far behind Black Ops 4, Red Dead Redemption 2 and Assassin’s Creed Odyssey.
This is very far off the tracking levels of previous Battlefield titles in 2011, 2013, and 2016. With a release date directly in between CoD and RDR, we worry that BFV could be headed for a similar fate as 2016’s Titanfall 2, which got squeezed out by its launch date directly between Battlefield 1 and Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare.
The game’s pre-order numbers being below expectations could be the result of the remarks made by one of the EA’s executives who suggested not to buy the game if they don’t like it.
Furthermore, Battlefield V is one of the first wave of games that will support Rea-Time Ray Tracing. However, this feature will not be available at launch and will be added sometime after as DICE is still optimizing it for the game.
Battlefield V is a first-person action shooter in development at EA DICE and is scheduled to launch on October 19, 2018, for PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4.
