Free-To-Play Battlefield Mobile Revealed With First Details
As mobile gaming continues to grow as one of the biggest sectors of the gaming world, the biggest game publishers are seeking to gain a foothold in the mobile industry. With publishers like Square Enix making new mobile-specific games of their hit franchises like Hitman, the potential to reach new audiences is higher than ever. The Battlefield franchise has proven to be one of the most popular franchises for EA, though it had yet to have any place in the mobile gaming world until a mobile project was announced this year. Now, new details about the Battlefield mobile game have finally been revealed.
EA has updated its official website with new details about the upcoming Battlefield Mobile, alongside its new listing on the Google Play store. The game will soon be entering the play-test portion of its release, with this early version of the game only being made available in the Philippines and Indonesia for Android phones for now. Players in these regions are now able to register to participate in these play-tests, though, even they will not be guaranteed entry. With the big question on everyone’s mind likely being about the game’s monetization system, here’s what EA states about the game’s free-to-play status:
“Battlefield Mobile is free-to-play and only includes cosmetic items. Battlefield Mobile will feature its own Battle Passes, collectible cosmetics, and unlockables unique to this mobile game.”
So far, EA has only confirmed that the Grand Bazaar map and the classic Conquest mode will be available during the testing period, and that the Battlefield mobile game will not utilize cross-play, as it is being made specifically for mobile. Android 7.0 phones or higher will be needed to play the game (iOS device compatibility has not been confirmed for the game yet) and progress from the playtest will be wiped before the final version of the game releases. Still, Battlefield fans looking to play their favorite shooting game out on the go will have a fun time with this one. Their love for the franchise knows no bounds, and that love is indeed a Battlefield.
