Battlefield V Battle Royale Plans?

In an unconfirmed story, VentureBeat says that DICE is testing a Battle Royale mode for Battlefield V in a report similar to yesterday's rumor that a Battle Royale mode is being created for Call of Duty: Black Ops 4. They say this will probably come as a free update after the release of the military shooter sequel, attributing the rumor "to someone with knowledge of the studio who asked to remain anonymous." They say Electronic Arts declined their request for comment.

I feel like Fortnite is the first big PC game this place has completely missed the trend on. A few people here occasionally say they enjoy it, but there's no real mention of it. But it's the biggest thing in gaming right now, with kids being utter lunatics for it.

I can't think of a single major video game trend this place has basically ignored. Even Pokemon Go had more enthusiasm around here.

Most of us playing it have learned not to talk about it around the Cutterverse.

Eh in this instance I'm not using it to directly refer to Cutter but rather the, seemingly more than, 50% of this board who are hostile to anything popular... which of course is best exemplified by the namesake himself.

People have been asking for this since H1Z1 - and it would be damn awesome (as long as the TTK isn't ridiculously low).

BR is way more tense and interesting than the typical shooter scoreboard round after round BS we've been stuck with for the past 20+ years.

Good to see we are finally starting to leave that 'bandwagon' behind.

Fortnight is Minecraft combined with an FPS. It's no wonder the kids love it.

It would have been great if RSI had said they were adding a BR mode on April fools day.

A BR mode using Frostbite would be great.

It's funny that Ubisoft has said that it would be too much work to implement a BR mode to Wildlands, probably becuase that game's sales have totally tapered off, and they can't justify spending more development on it. The Wildlands existing map and engine would be PERFECT for a BR mode, Ubi really let this one slip through their fingers IMO, and looks like EA and DICE will be there to pick up the slack.

The engine, vehicle mechanics, and all the amazing art assets should make a Battlefield BR mode pretty great. And maybe I'll actually play it, as I've been taking a break from BR games for the last 6+ months as I was just getting bored of em.

At least EA has extensive technical knowledge with creating extremely large maps, supporting large player counts with intertwined gameplay mechanics, and operating the network infrastructure to support all that.

PUBG and Fortnite play cluncky and unpolished, partly because of the comparison to the standard EA has put forth with Battlefield, Battlefront, COD, etc.

*awaits a beheading for extending a compliment to EA*

Best compliment I can think to extend to EA is that they didn't create COD.

Is there a BR game where you can make/break alliances with other players? I know Fortnite has a squad based mode, but I'd like to see a game where you can emerge from cover with a 'Handshake' symbol over your head, indicating that you want to team up with others, and then later, after you've decimated the rest, you get to stab each other in the back

Is this "battle royale" mode the game style of this PUBG game everyone is talking about? Sorry, serious question. I don't play much online MP anymore.


BR = Free for all + no respawn


How does this differ from what you could do in quake?

They add a magic barrier that shrinks the map as time goes on, to force a quicker finish.



It does tickle me to see a mere game mode that people used to consider 2nd rate blow up into an entire game.
