Battlefield is returning to World War 2, where it all began for the Battlefield series. The team aim to deliver the untold stories, previously un-played moments, just something that hasn’t already been done to death in films and games before. Above all they want this to be the most immersive experience in the series to date.
Grand Operations is the new multiplayer mode, fight through multiple game modes over multiple maps. It’s operations, but bigger. There will be an extra round known as Last Stand. After fighting for four rounds, resources are low and all remaining players fight until the last man standing. Staying in a squad is recommended as this will allow you access to health and ammo. So after shooting your way through three modes expect one more battle.
Combined Arms is the co-op mode that allows you and up to three other players to go behind enemy lines and complete numerous objectives. Try and push through for bigger rewards or extract early, it’s up to you.
War Stories are back, featuring many perspectives on what it is like to be in the trenches during dark times. One story is of a young resistance fighter who is trying to save her family in the top of Norway.
Players will see an expanded arsenal of weaponry and vehicles that were used during World War 2.
Fortifications is a new defensive strategy system that allows all players to carry a toolbox which can be used to dig out a foxhole, build up barricades and assemble an MG.
The Company is the heart and soul of Battlefield V, it will affect how you play and how your team looks. Players create their own personal experience, your collection of soldiers, weapons and vehicles, tailored to your choices. Looks can be customised for those wanting their unique look.
There is no more premium pass, meaning no paying for new maps or modes, players will stay together, no-one gets left behind.
Tides of War is open to all players and will provide new battles, new fronts and rewards consistently. There will be themed chapters, based on World War 2 history that span multiple months. Participate and receive rewards for doing so. It is an evolving live service journey. New vehicles, new weapons, times events, dog tags, emblems, face paint, soldier skins and weapon skins will all be available to get. Fall of Europe will be the first chapter of Tides of War and begins in November.
