DICE Partners with NVIDIA for Battlefield V PC; Pre-Order Details Revealed

Battlefield V

There will nearly certainly be a very flashy first trailer released for Battlefield 5, along with details on key modes.

Rather than waiting until E3 in a few weeks time, EA made a decision to hold its own separate Battlefield 5 reveal event last night. But importantly, the result of each round or day, has a greater impact on the supplies and respawn reinforcements available to each side at the start of each new day, and also whether the Operation leads to a climactic finale, in which each player may only have one life and it is a last man standing situation. EA/DICE says that modes like the 64-player Conquest return, with the game's multiplayer culminating in Grand Operations, an all-new live, event-based experience fighting across several maps and modes.

The game launches on PS4, Xbox One, and PC on October 19th, although you can expect more footage until then. It sounds suspiciously like a battle royale mode but DICE, unlike Call of Duty: Black Ops 4, did not call it that. You may have heard this about other World War II games in the past as well, but the new Battlefield will give you the most immersive war experience yet. During the stream, which featured minimal gameplay - save for a heavily-edited trailer at the very end - Noah would toss softball questions at the developers from DICE and they would provide textbook PR answers about the new modes and features. EA Access and Origin members will get access on October 11, a week ahead of the October 19th launch date. There is a 4-player coop mode called Combined Arms too.

Finally, EA also announced that Battlefield 5 would get rid of the Premium Pass, releasing its major post-release content for free. Unfortunately, not much else was divulged about this mode, but hopefully, we learn more at E3. Yes, no two Battle Royale games are similar, but neither game offers any sort of background story.

As for the trailer, it's incredibly unlikely that your actual gameplay experience will even remotely resemble what was shown. And it really looked a lot like Battlefield 1, just reskinned for with World War II.

Players are set to get access to a slew of new features and changes, including a Company of customizable characters, the ability to lie on one's back, additional game modes, support for destroying the environment, and more.
