Even though the release date was pushed back to November 20, the free Battlefield V Beta will still be available on September 6. To prepare you for the Beta launch, Electronic Arts and EA DICE have revealed a 6-minute Battlefield V preview, which includes details on the new Battle Royale mode “Firestorm,” Single Player War Stories, Multiplayer maps and modes, and the free post-launch live service, “Tides of War.”
Battlefield V takes the series back to its roots with a never-before-seen portrayal of World War II. Lead your squad to victory with new ways to turn the battlefield to your advantage. Assemble your Company of customized soldiers, weapons, and vehicles – then take them on an epic journey through the Tides of War.
Battlefield V‘s new multiplayer experiences are the biggest and boldest yet. Multi-map Grand Operations delivers iconic action – like paratrooper raids, tank assaults, and aerial dogfights – while the all-new battle royale mode and cooperative Combined Arms gives you more to look forward to after launch. Signature rock-paper-scissors gameplay rewards skill and strategy in 64-player all-out war against infantry, vehicles, and aircraft.
The anthology-style War Stories single-player campaign makes a triumphant return. Battle as a novice deployed behind enemy lines in North Africa, a Norwegian resistance fighter on a mission above the Arctic Circle, and more. Witness WW2 through the eyes of the men and women who changed the world forever, as you join untold, unexpected stories of human drama set against global conflict in a world that would never be the same.
With no paid expansions, all Battlefield V players can embark on Tides of War — the live service journey of you and your Company through an evolving, expanding WW2 experience. The battle begins with the Fall of Europe in November and continues on other unsung battlefields, featuring new factions, gear, Daily Missions, and Special Assignments. Every fight brings new challenges and opportunities.
