Battlefield V 'Firestorm' adds teamwork to battle royale

Today, EA released a new trailer for Battlefield V, 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.

Aside from providing an overview of the known game modes and setting, developer DICE revealed "Firestorm". Firestorm is the game's 64-player battle royale experience where teams of players fight to be the last ones standing. Unlike PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds, there is a greater focus on teamwork.

  • Wage war in a ring of fire that slowly shrinks the battlefield.
  • Fight to be the last infantry squad standing of sixteen squads.
  • Biggest Battlefield map to date.
  • Destructible environment which changes the arena.

Battlefield V on Xbox One X supports "4K Ultra HD", "HDR10" and "Variable Refresh Rate". The game probably achieves native 4K resolution at 60 FPS just like Star Wars Battlefront II.
