Battlefield V Confirms Co-op, No Premium Pass (VIDEO)
The first official trailer for Battlefield V has just debuted, and it’s got a lot of Battlefield fans excited for the future of the series. The full-length trailer aired during a livestream hosted by Trevor Noah, wherein he speaks at length with the game’s developers about the latest entry in the series. Some of the more exciting news involved the game’s co-op mode, as well as details regarding the Premium Pass, a point of contention among veterans of the series. First, though, check out the official Battlefield V trailer below:
Co-op makes its triumphant return as “Combined Arms,” marking the first co-op experience in a Battlefield game since Battlefield 3. You and up to three players will “step into the shoes of the pathfinders, the paratroopers that go behind enemy lines.” This will be a high-stakes mode, where detection “might mean death.” Resource scarcity will also be another obstacle along the way to the objective. Squads will also be able to choose where to push on to the objective or extract early should the need arise.
Now for some excellent new: Battlefield V will not feature a Premium Pass. Revealed in a recent press release, all players will have full access to the same content, which means squadmates will no longer have to worry about being excluded due to paywalls. Here’s the official word from the press release:
There will be no premium pass, all players will have access to the same maps and modes, keeping the community unified as they progress through Battlefield V. In Tides of War, their journey through World War 2 will grow through themed experiences that will include events and all-new ways to play like Grand Operations, while also unlocking the latest themed rewards such as weapons and vehicles to further shape their Company.”
Battlefield V arrives on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One on October 19, 2018. A first look at the game’s multiplayer will be available during EA Play on June 9.
