Battlefield V 'Firestorm' battle royale may not come with the standard PC version [updated]

September 7, 2018: EA has updated the Battlefield V preorder page which now says that Firestorm will be part of the standard edition on PC. It's unclear if this is a change in policy or the company fixed a mistake on its website.

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.

"Firestorm" is the game's 64-player battle royale experience where teams fight to be the last ones standing. Unlike PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds, there is a greater focus on teamwork.

However, it looks like Firestorm won't be available to PC players who simply purchase the standard edition of the game. If you go to the Battlefield V preorder page, it clearly shows that it's part of the standard edition on Xbox One and PlayStation 4, but not PC.

We've reached out to EA for comment and shall update you as soon as we receive a response. Hopefully this is just a mistake because the PC crowd won't be too happy that they have to spend more for something included with other versions.
