The promised Battle Royale mode for Battlefield V is almost upon us. EA has officially revealed that Firestorm will launch for all players on March 25, which is much sooner than we anticipated. The mode was leaked last week when a tutorial video of all things was posted online to Youtube, and believe it or not but it’s still there.
Firestorm is DICE’s response to the growing popularity of the Battle Royale genre that has taken the gaming world by storm as of late. Matches will host 64 players, and will take place on the largest map in franchise history according to DICE. You’ll have the option to go it alone, or rally up with three other players in a 4-man squad. In addition to hunting down enemy players, you can also attack objectives for in-game loot which includes a gun that can call in a V-1 rocket strike.
Other than that, players can expect the signature Battlefield combat gameplay that they know and love, just with the aspects of a Battle Royale match. Despite facing tough competition form the likes of Fortnite and Apex Legends, Firestorm does appear to have some interesting concepts to it. On top of that, you’ll still be able to pilot helicopters, tanks, and a variety of different vehicles, as well as enjoying destructible environments. We’ll just have to see how it does once it finally comes out.
Battlefield V’s Firestorm mode launches on March 25 for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. You can check out the reveal trailer here:
