Battlefield V Battle Royale Confirmed

EA rolled out the Battlefield V Official Multiplayer Trailer today at their pre-E3 show. This was a quick drive-by, but they mention a few details about the game in passing, including word on plans for a battle royale mode after rumors of one had been seemingly shot down. As for the video, in spite of being the official multiplayer trailer, it seems to consist entirely of cutscenes. Here's word from the description:

Every battle is unique. Every mode its own challenge. Battlefield V multiplayer provides unmatched intensity and scale in a sandbox of all-out war.

Take on classic modes like Conquest or experiences like Grand Operations, where you'll participate in vast historical battles across multiple maps – and modes – and relive moments of bravery and desperation while fighting your way to the final objective.

I've seen all I think I need to see of the gameplay. I'm interested in three answers: Will there be player-run servers? Will there be a server browser? Will there be forced auto-balance? Even after removing the loot box stuff, Battlefront 2 is a crap show without those three things.

1) player-run servers are never coming back.
2) probably, won't know till they release beta through
3) difficult to force auto-balance in a game where you want to play with your buddies in squads. If you're not grouped into a party together then you'll probably be the one selected for team balance.



It would be enough if they autobalanced aggressively every minute, in BF1 auto balance only triggers at the end of a round, which is why nearly every single game in BF1 is a lopsided boring mess, just like BF1 is.

Also I just played it yesterday (already uninstalled it again though) and when I pressed quick play it put me in an EMPTY SERVER. So they didn't even fix the release day bug with matchmaking. Lmao

What the FUCK!? Tanks will have limited ammo in BFV? NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!

No more blowing up everything all day long with a tank, without resupplying. Hopefully the resupplying mechanic for vehicles doesn't take all damned day long, aka grenade resupplying in most BF games.

*EDIT* In Grand Operations mode only, apparently. Phew.

It might have also been a squad unlock tank... which I have to imagine aren't meant to be a forever power-up.

I am not much of a multiplayer gamer but 2142 was my hands down favorite of all time. What could be cooler than rocketing up to a massive floating airship and destroying it from the inside? It's a travesty that there's never been a follow-up. Screw all this "WW2 is new again!" crap - it really isn't.

There's another E3 multiplayer BFV video out there, and it clearly shows the player getting experience while building/repairing some structures.

In other words, I will be level 100 the first week, after building non-stop all over every map 10-12 hours a day.

This game looks gorgeous, I hope they don't fuck it up too much.

I hate EA as much as the next guy but to think this wasn't inevitable or to bag on it as if the game was exclusively Battle Royale is a little reaching.

It's one of several modes. Conquest will always be my jam.

Well said. Variations on Battle Royal have been around for a while just like ctf, tdm,dm etc. UT99 had last man standing. Anyways, they can add whatever game mods they want as long as they don't subtract core ones.

Hell yeah. Scoreboard shooters are so 80's, about time they did something different.

This is EA as it lives and breathes, bravo!

I can't wait till Slick drops here to tell us how Battlefield is TOTALLY NOT TRYING TO BE LIKE FORTNIGHT

I guess this gives the #metoo hashtag a whole new meaning

It's not them. It's EA. EA is the #MeToo publisher, and they want some of that sweet, sweet Battle Royale pie.
