Battlefield V Preload Date Announced, Starts Days Before Release

Battlefield V is currently up for preorder on Origin, PlayStation Store, Xbox Store and many other third-party retailers. The game is releasing on October 19 but players can grab the deluxe edition for early access on October 16.

For both the standard as well as the deluxe edition, preload will begin on the same day. According to EA DICE, Battlefield V preload will begin on October 12. The game’s file size remains under wraps but we can expect it to be somewhere around 60GB.

More details about Battlefield V preload and file size will be shared in the coming months as we head closer to the game’s release.

The next time we’ll see Battlefield V it is going to be at EA PLAY so make sure you keep an eye on the live stream on June 9. During the event, players will get access to the game’s multiplayer and many other details that should have been shared at the recent live event.

Battlefield V takes us back to World War 2 where it all began for the series. The game includes female soldiers and for those who failed their history lesson, yes, women did serve the frontlines in World War II. The community is showing mixed reactions to the game mainly due to messed up messaging by EA DICE.

Hopefully, EA PLAY is going to change that and DICE’s in-depth research will pay out. While you wait for Battlefield V preload to begin, check out our review for Battlefield 1.
