Today's press conference also reiterated the message of "no loot boxes, no premium passes" for the upcoming first person shooter.
Oskar Gabrielson, general manager of game developer DICE, had to address the backlash against Battlefield V over the inclusion of female soldiers when the sequel was first revealed. "Every battle is unique, and every mode brings its own challenges - from the way you interact with the environment around you, to compelling single-player stories, to the next level of large-scale multiplayer that spans across multiple maps and modes".
The addition of a battle royale mode should come at no surprise, considering the surge in popularity of titles like "PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds" and "Fortnite". For example, players will be able to move fences and air-turrets around on the field, and they can even dive and crash through windows like action stars. Fans can also expect the same kind of destructible buildings that they know and love which means you aren't necessarily safe hiding out in a house.
Under the cover of the EA Play presentation, NVIDIA released a new video showing gameplay footage of the Grand Operations multiplayer mode.
"Battlefield V" is coming out October 21 for Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC.
