Battlefield V Reveals Battle Royale Firestorm Mode In Hot New Trailer (VIDEO)
For quite a few months, Battlefield V has been teasing its latest participation in the battle royale craze with Firestorm. As far back as last year’s E3, DICE have slowly revealed various tidbits about the all-out experience, with a post-launch release planned for sometime in 2019. Now that time has come with the fiery reveal trailer for Firestorm, it introducing gamers to the mode’s features ahead of it arrival later this month.
New footage sees the game’s World War II premise turned up to eleven as players engage in tense fast-paced battle, made even more so with threat of a scorching inferno closing in. Soldiers can be seen parachuting on the map, gearing up their 4-person squads, and taking off to war some even utilizing vehicles such as helicopters, amphibious jeeps, and even creatively-outfitted farming tractors. Of course, those looking for maximum firepower can instead go for the game’s teased inclusion of tanks. Check out the trailer below.
Battlefield V finally showing off their long-awaited battle royale mode is surely welcome sight for fans. However, the mode’s release will undoubtedly be met with competition from similar experiences such as Epic Games’ Fortnite, Activision’s Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 Blackout, and Respawn’s Apex Legends. Fortunately, DICE look to be carving out their own identity through its 64-player squad-based combat, rather than the 100-person free-for-all touted by games such as PUBG.
Battlefield V Firestorm mode is set to go live for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One on March 25.
