Battlefield V Will Have No Premium Pass

Battlefield V Will Have No Premium Pass

When prompted by host Trevor Noah if players would be able to pay, DICE gave a prompt "no" and stated that players will "can't pay for an unfair gameplay advantage in Battlefield V" and "have to play the game to earn new gear and skill is key". And even Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 is going to have a battle royale mode (though the developer is cagey about quite how large it'll be).

EA is big on live services, and in its most recent financial call, CEO Andrew Wilson said Battlefield 5 will feature "additional innovations on the future of multiplayer in first-person shooters", and such innovation will be available from "launch and over time as part of a live service".

Battlefield V's multiplayer will introduce two new games mode on top of the traditional ones from previous entries: Combined Arms and Grand Operation. More information about Grand Operations will be shared at E3 next month.

Overall, I have to admit I was a little disappointed in DICE's Battlefield 5 reveal. The company has also confirmed that it is ditching the premium pass. EA Access and Origin members will get access on October 11, a week ahead of the October 19th launch date.

The Battlefield franchise already boasts big maps and vehicles in its modes, so putting together something similar to BR gameplay shouldn't be hugely challenging for Dice.

Are you looking forward to Battlefield V? "Prepare for multiplayer that spans multiple maps and modes, meaning you'll experience more varied and exciting Battlefield moments". The first chapter of Tides of War starts in November and will focus on the fall of Europe.

Interestingly, the reveal trailer was deemed to be representative of the Xbox One experience by the developers, suggesting that Battlefield V PC could look much better at maximum settings. While the concept art that was shown was absolutely gorgeous, the presentation did little to generate hype.

One other interesting point touched upon in the reveal last night was the inclusion of co-op.
