BFV’s new multiplayer mode appears to stay true to the battle royale concept, with a variety of weapon classes at different levels of rarity, limited ammo / health, as well as vehicles, including even what appears to be a WW2-era take on some sort of helicopter or VTOL (vertical take-off and landing) aircraft.
Over the coming weeks and months, we’ll see whether the Battlefield player base takes a liking to the Firestorm mode, which was built by Criterion Games, makers of the Burnout series. Personally, I know what I’ll be doing once the Firestorm update hits on March 25th.
It’s been nearly four months since Battlefield V was launched and the game’s planned battle royale mode, Firestorm, now has a firm launch date. Starting on March 25th, according to Electronic Arts and DICE, the Swedish developers behind the Battlefield game series, Firestorm will launch for Battlefield V in the form of an update, downloaded via the Origin app or from Xbox Live / PlayStation Network.
Firestorm will be the first time a battle royale game mode has been added to the first-person shooter series that places an emphasis on destructible environments and large-scale warfare. In the cinematic trailer available below, players will drop as a team into an open-world map without any gear. Upon landing, your first objective will be to acquire weapons and supplies, immediately followed by combating anyone who challenges or lands near you.
