Battlefield V Gets New Progression System – EA Admits To Past Mistakes
In a financial conference call for Electronic Art’s analysts and investors, the monetization plans and other details involving Battlefield V were discussed. The news may be the first sigh of relief EA fans have had in a while. With the disasters the company faced over Star Wars Battlefront II behind them, it seems possible that they have learned a thing or two from the experience.
The model for Battlefield V isn’t so dissimilar from Battlefront II, at least in the fact that EA hopes to deliver a game that is big with a long life. The difference comes in their re-evaluation of the progression and monetization systems previously in place. Instead, what has surfaced is an entirely different progression system that the developers have built from scratch.
Chief Financial Officer, Blake Jorgenson, noted that EA is also taking a hard look at their pre-ordering methods, purchasing intent, and other elements of Battlefield V. According to Jorgenson, they are happy with the way their plans are turning out. On top of what is described as a “long-term service plan,” players can expect a game that will last a long time and won’t repeat the mistakes of Battlefront II.
At this time the details are a bit thin on what this new progression system and monetization process will look like. The fact that EA is trying, however, is in and of itself exciting. Fans will get a chance to find out first-hand when Battlefield V releases on Xbox One, PS4, and PC October 19th. What are your hopes for the coming Battlefield V?
