With each passing day, the popularity of Apex Legends is growing and it seems there is stopping it for the time being. Fortnite failed to maintain its dominance in the Battle Royale genre and while Black Ops 4 Blackout is doing good for itself, it is nowhere near Apex Legends. EA and Respawn developed this new Battle Royale game that released PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. However, this isn’t the only Battle Royale game currently in development at EA. It is easy to forget that EA DICE is working on Firestorm, the battle royale mode for Battlefield 5. The mode is set to release soon but will it be able to attract a significant player base? Battlefield 5 Firestorm is set within a ring of fire that slowly shrinks the battlefield. There are 64 players divided into 16 squads. The unique element here is that players can use Battlefield Vehicles. The use of tanks can affect the balance of the game unless EA DICE manages to implement it in a way that it doesn’t. Players can get … [Read more...] about Apex Legends Will Kill Battlefield 5 Firestorm At Launch?
Battlefield 5 squads not working
In terms of raw scope, Battlefield 5 is one of the year’s biggest games. To better serve our readers, we will be publishing stand-alone reviews for both the single-player campaign and multiplayer modes. What follows is our multiplayer review. At their most effective, successful WWII tankers famously fought at only two speeds: full power or full stop. Battlefield 5’s multiplayer plays similarly. It is one of the fastest military shooters to be released in years. The experience left me breathless at times. After a full weekend of play, all I want is more. But to buy into Battlefield 5 in 2018 is to accept a number of flaws and compromises. With multiple game modes still in development, including a battle royale mode that is still months from being available, Battlefield 5 is a work-in-progress. Battlefield 5 multiplayer completely sells the chaos of war. Moment-to-moment, it’s exceptionally demanding, even to an experienced player. I still feels like I have a lot to … [Read more...] about Battlefield 5 review: a rough draft for an excellent multiplayer shooter
The comparisons with Fortnite: Battle Royale are inevitable. But don’t let that dishearten you, or detract from the fact that Battlefield 5 is very much its own, unique game… and quite possibly the most ambitious evolution of the franchise in years. This is DICE making a WW2 shooter quite unlike we’ve ever seen, and it’s possibly going to make last year’s Call of Duty: WW2 look a bit silly.Senior Producer, and Battlefield stalwart, Lars Gustavsson makes a standard boast at the start of my extensive, behind the scenes look at Battlefield 5. “This is the richest, deepest and most immersive BF ever created,” he says. It’s a line we’ve all heard before, but this time it seems true. The scale and ambition of this game is vast, so to simply compare it to Fortnite, PUBG, Destiny 2 or any big shooter of this generation is perhaps an understatement. If DICE's grand ambitions fall into place, this could be the shooter of this generation.So, … [Read more...] about Battlefield 5 learns from Fortnite and Destiny, aiming to be the only shooter you’ll need this year
Battlefield 5 has finally been revealed. It's heading back to World War 2, and while DICE didn't pull any sort of big pivot—which we didn't really expect—some of the series' core systems are being redesigned dramatically. If you don't already play Battlefield, these adjustments may not seem like big deals, but they are. Squad play is much more emphasized, reviving has been overhauled, supplies will be more scarce, the animation system has had a ton of work, co-op is returning, and that's not the half of it.Yesterday, at EA's invitation, we watched a live three-hour presentation covering much of what's to come in BF5. They're still holding onto a few cards, which will probably be revealed at EA Play in June, but there's still a ton of information to process now. Here's everything we know about Battlefield 5 so far...What is Battlefield 5's release date? Battlefield 5 arrives first for Origin Access members on October 11. If you don’t have Access, the Deluxe … [Read more...] about Everything you need to know about Battlefield 5
We know Battlefield 5 is on the way in 2018. A couple of months ago, a credible leak made us aware that the game existed, and suggested that the Battlefield franchise was heading back to World War 2. A more recent report suggests that DICE is working on a Battle Royale mode for Battlefield 5 (which seems odd, but very on trend), and an EA investor call confirmed that the game is due some time in 2018. That all makes sense - Battle Royale might be old news next year! DICE is working on this new Battlefield game, and it's operating under the codename: Battlefield V (which is the same thing the developer called Battlefield 1, before its unveiling). The leak also suggests that we'll be getting a co-op mode, and a proper story mode - similar to the campaign seen in Battlefield 1. Obviously there will be vehicles that operate on land and in the air, and boats are highly likely too. There has been rumors of lootboxes too, although given how badly burned publisher EA was with stablemate … [Read more...] about Battlefield 5 coming in late 2018
