‘Battlefield V’ Battle Royale Mode, ‘Firestorm’, Leaked In New Video
Long-anticipated by Battlefield V players, the game's forthcoming battle royale mode, Firestorm, has now become a lot clearer thanks to a leaked video showing off its tutorial.
As posted on YouTube by user JROBtheFinesser, the video details the following points:
> Firestorm can be played solo, in duos, or in four-player squads.
> Games begin with players parachuting into the map.
> Urban areas have the best loot, but the greatest dangers.
> Capture objectives and safes to earn reinforcements and more.
> Weapons scale from common, to rare, to epic.
> Loot and ammo can be shared between squad members.
> Grab backpacks to carry more of said ammo and loot.
> When downed, the player can be revived by their allies.
> Bleed out before then, though, and it's game over.
> There are no benefits to picking any particular class.
> The survivable area shrinks as a circle of fire closes in on players.
Watch the video below, to see the above points in action...
Firestorm is expected to launch in the coming weeks - we were previously told "March 2019", and looking outside the office window, and the calendar on this here computer, that seems to be now. Firestorm shouldn't be a paid extra, but given to all BFV for free - EA has already announced that content updates for the game will be free.
Firestorm is set to support 64 concurrent players, working out to 16 squads of four. Developers DICE have previously said that the map for Firestorm will be the biggest ever seen in the Battlefield series. The map will feature vehicles, on both the ground and in the air.
A full trailer for Firestorm is expected soon, with a snippet of it finding its way to Twitter already.
