What you need to know

  • Battlefield V is a first-person shooter from EA.
  • It wasn't as popular as Battlefield 1.
  • The game will stop getting updates after this summer.
  • You purchase Battlefield V for $30 on Amazon (opens in new tab).

Battlefield V didn't garner the thunderous response Battlefield 1 received, but that hasn't stopped EA from working on new content for the game. Recently, the team released the "Into the Jungle" update that wraps up on April 29. After that, there's going to be one more standalone content update and then it looks like the updates will stop.

Ryan McArthur, the game's Senior Producer, said the following on EA's website.

As you are aware, the current Battlefield V Chapter, Into the Jungle, wraps up on April 29. As we look to the future, we will release one more standalone update this summer that brings with it some new content, weapons, and game tweaks. We are targeting June for this update. We're still tackling the challenges from working from home and will let you know how things progress for us over the next month.

The team will also focus on anti-cheat technology going forward. However, there's a possibility that this may end in June too.

  • "If you don't like it, don't buy it." The fans listened. Let this be a reminder to the gaming industry that gamers are primarily squaded through political stances in games. The SJW approach to BattleField V led to small growth within the community and altered player's preference in games. Assisted my the success of Modern Warfare; BattleField V failed to deliver true World War 2 experiences which the fans were expecting and thus killed their own game. Damn shame. BattleField was once a beloved franchise by many. Let's see how they fair with the next one.
  • WTH are you talking about? There is no "SJW approach" (whatever the hell that is supposed to mean) in BF5.
    If what you are bemoaning is the fact that you can't play as an "Einsatzgruppen" and murder innocent jews with abandon, then **** you.
