Battlefield V Enters Battle Royale Market

Just when you thought there were enough big names in the Battle Royale market, EA’s Battlefield V recently announced Firestorm, their version of Battle Royale which will be released on March 25th.

Battlefield V Firestorm was developed by Criterion Games in partnership with DICE. “Mix a shrinking playing field with trademark Battlefield elements such as team play, powerful vehicles, and destruction, and you get a battle royale so intense it’ll make your lips curl.” Players will parachute into the Firestorm map and will fight within a ring of fire that will shrink as the match progresses, following the same methods as other popular battle royale games with map shrinking storms and safe zones. Matches will consist of 64 players, 16 squads which will have access to all of your favorite Battlefield V elements. You will also have the ability to work together to secure objectives for chances to obtain better and rare gear…all on the biggest Battlefield map to date, Halvoy. These objectives operate similar to objectives found in the Conquest mode with some being fixed and others being random locations. All Firestorm matches will be tied to your Company and Battlefield V progression.

Firestorm will be available free for all current owners of Battlefield V editions on Playstation 4, Windows PC, and Xbox One.
