Battlefield V is an upcoming first-person shooter set in World War II. The game features single-player campaign scenarios similar to Battlefield 1. For example, one of the main missions focuses on a female solider, her history, and her family. The developer said that Battlefield V tells the "untold stories of World War II", but it's unclear if they're works of fiction or interactive reenactments.
Today, EA released a roadmap which details future DLC. While the majority of the slide reveals standard content, it looks like "Firestorm", Battlefield V's battle royale mode, has been delayed to March 2019. Beforehand, many gamers thought that it would launch with the title in November. It's unclear why it'll launch next year.
It seems like Firestorm was pushed back to polish the gameplay. It'll be interesting to see how DICE's take on the overcrowded genre stacks up against Call of Duty: Black Ops 4's "Blackout" mode. Instead of a forcefield, there's a ring of fire that closes in as the match progresses.
Battlefield V was supposed to launch earlier this year, but was delayed to November 20, 2018 a few weeks ago. Hopefully the game will be a polished experience next month. The beta test was quite rough around the edges, especially when it came to performance on Xbox One. Even the Xbox One X performance wasn't that great.
