Battlefield V to dip its toes in the ‘Royale’ mode

Many have tried and only a handful have succeeded, but EA is still taking a bet on the hugely-popular Battle Royal game mode that seemingly everybody is trying.

During this year’s EA E3 press briefing, the company announced that a Battle Royal mode will be making its way to its newly-announced Battlefield V game.

There are still very few details about it, but EA did say that it has been “re-imagined for Battlefield” and promising to “bring you an experience that you haven’t had before.”

Apart from that, EA also announced a few more details about Battlefield V – like Grand Operations.

“Grand Operations is the ultimate multiplayer experience, designed to seamlessly showcase the maps and modes of Battlefield V. Each Grand Operation presents a powerful narrative experience inspired by historical events. Shortly after launch, you will be able to take part in the first Grand Operation. In the months that follow, you’ll continue the fight across other unseen and unplayed battlefields of World War 2,” EA explained on their website.

If that sounds familiar, it’s because Grand Operations “is our upgraded version of Operations in Battlefield 1.”

Then there is Airborne, which essential sees team attacking or defending artillery cannons while players drop in from the sky.

“Airborne centers around a group of artillery cannons that the attacking team will try to destroy, while the defenders try to prevent this from happening. The attackers enter the action from waves of airplanes, and each attacker decides when and where to eject. Once your boots hit the ground, work with your squad to locate bombs and destroy enemy defenses. Playing the objective can determine the success of the invasion.”

While the Battlefield franchise isn’t the most realistic portrayal of war, we are still super excited for it.
