Last week, Call of Duty laid its cards on the table, drastically changing the CoD formula to shoe-in a battle royale mode. If you order the "Battlefield V Deluxe Edition" you get to start playing on October 16.
While we had to wait until the very end of the live stream event to see actual gameplay, or at least a clearly scripted version of it, I won't be as cruel.
"Because of this, we suggest not even blinking during the Battlefield V Live Reveal".
Returning to its roots, Battlefield V will take place during the WWII era, after the original Battlefield was first set in the second World War in Battlefield 1942, released back in 2002.
Overall, the Battle Packs offered no in-game advantages (unless you count XP boosts), but DICE appears to be removing all element of chance from Battlefield 5's cosmetic reward system. One of them will be told from the perspective of a female Nowegian Resistance fighter, battling against the German occupation.

The big new mode for multiplayer in Battlefield V is Grand Operations, which builds upon the popular Operations mode first introduced in Battlefield 1, which similarly combines several modes and maps over one big match. Grand Operation will support 64 players in total. There will be a mode called "Combined Arms", which will put up to four players up against waves of bots in a "wide variety of missions".
"You can of course expect large-scale multiplayer in the next Battlefield - but Battlefield V takes it to the next level".
Construction aspects are also being brought into the game.
Big release date news is expected to be announced during the Battlefield V reveal today. All of the game's major post-launch content - maps, modes, etc. - will be free for everybody in an effort to keep the community together. But as nostalgic as we are about World War 2, we wanted to challenge the preconception of the era with an unexpected portrayal of this familiar setting.
