Like the previous Battlefield titles, EA DICE will expand Battlefield V after launch. However, the studio will be expanding the game with new game modes that were supposed to be at launch and the studio has confirmed that another new game mode, Battlefield V Combined Arms, won’t be available at launch.
DICE has confirmed on the official website for the game that Battlefield V Combined Arms game mode will not be available at launch. This means that two out of three new game modes won’t be playable at launch.
Also, the studio is yet to reveal when Battlefield V Combined Arms and the Battle Royale mode will be available post-launch.
The only new game mode that will be available at launch will be Grand Operations which itself is the evolution of the Operations in Battlefield 1.
Grand Operations are the representation of historical battles that consists of multiple rounds and each round representing a day in Grand Operations and players’ actions will impact the scenario in the next day.
Aside from the Battlefield V Combined Arms game mode, the game will also be missing some features at launch like the vehicle customization. Not only that, the feature to drag your teammates to cover might also be missing from the game.
According to the multiplayer producer at DICE, David Sirland, the feature to drag your teammates to cover in Battlefield V is still under development.
Furthermore, Battlefield V is among the first games to feature Real-Time Ray Tracing support. However, Real-time Ray Tracing will also be not available for the game at launch as the studio is still optimizing it to ensure that upcoming RTX 2080 Ti and RTX 2080 are able to play Battlefeild V at 60 FPS.
Also, repotedly the pre-order for the game are below EA’s expectations and not only that, the game’s pre-orders are 85% behind Black Ops 4.
Battlefield V is a first-person action shooter in development at EA DICE and is sceduled to launch on October 19, 2018, for PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4.
