​Battlefield 5's New Battle Royale Mode Named As Firestorm, New Trailer Released

EA DICE has just released a trailer which shows off a bunch of new Battlefield V features, and the mysterious battle royale mode has finally been named.

Firestorm will allow 16 four-player teams to compete against one another, with the final squad standing being crowned victorious. According to the new trailer, Battlefield V's Firestorm boasts the biggest ever battle royale map - which includes a variety of deadly vehicles and destructible buildings.

Also, it looks as if squads will be the only option in terms of party size, but that doesn't mean solos, duos, and larger teams won't be introduced at some point. "This is Battlefield V" made it clear that future content is a top priority for the guys at DICE, so expect multiple updates to hit Firestorm, plus other games modes, post launch.

On the matter of other game modes, details on single-player, multiplayer, and expansions were also revealed in the trailer. Battlefield 1's iconic War Stories will be making a return for V, and there will be four segments to pick from at launch. Another, named The Last Tiger, will come at some point after the initial release.

Online multiplayer will welcome a new Grand Operations game mode. This will see soldiers battle across four in-game days, with the final day allowing either team to win the match. And to make it less repetitive, the Grand Operations location will change every four weeks, and the tasks you have to complete on each in-game day could switch between different game modes.

DLC wise, Battlefield V wants to keep the it's audience playing together. This means no Premium Pass, which EA DICE are just about to give away for Battlefield 1. There'll be four chapters of DLC released across the first year, and it's likely even more will come
