Update: Developer DICE has released an all-new, six and a half minute Battlefield V video titled \u201cThis is Battlefield V,\u201d providing an in-depth look at Single Player War Stories, Multiplayer maps and modes and the free post-launch journey, Tides of War.\r\n\r\nThe video also details the highly-anticipated Battle Royale mode, Firestorm. In Firestorm, 16 teams of four will fight it out to become the last squad standing on the largest Battlefield map to date. You can see the video below.\r\n\r\nhttps:\/\/www.youtube.com\/watch?v=UZW4cPUIVf4\r\n\r\nThe original story follows:\r\n\r\nAhead of Gamescom 2018, publisher EA dropped an epic new trailer for its upcoming WWII shooter Battlefield V. If you stick around until the end, that ring of fire confirms a battle royale mode is on the way.\r\n\r\nThe action-packed multiplayer trailer is called The Devastation of Rotterdam, and it begins with the Rotterdam map. This map is influenced by the city in Holland during May 1940, where the invading German forces met fierce opposition from the Dutch military.\r\n\r\nThe jumping, sliding, and vaulting seen in the trailer are examples of Battlefield V\u2019s improved soldier movement. It\u2019s also our first look at how the concussive force of explosions affects nearby soldiers, blowing them off their feet.\r\n\r\nThen the trailer moves on to the new Devastation multiplayer map. This one\u2019s inspired by the second half of the Rotterdam blitz by the German forces. Devastation recreates the aftermath of intensive bombardments. The ruined streets are built with dynamic destruction. Different parts of buildings crack, shift and crumble over time.\r\n\r\nhttps:\/\/www.youtube.com\/watch?v=-FEgeuGsmzQ\r\n\r\nNext up is Twisted Steel. Set during the initial invasion of France, this map is open marshes and sporadic dense thickets of trees. The massive bridge that towers over all is the biggest structure ever modelled in a Battlefield game. The bridge is a vital location for squads to either prepare a defence with hastily constructed fortifications or mount a coordinated assault on a Conquest point.\r\n\r\nThe final map revealed is Hamada. It\u2019s one of two North African maps and encourages tank warfare. Hamada is inspired by a strategic point between Libya and Egypt and the scene of pivotal battles between the Axis and Allies during 1941 and 1942.\r\n\r\nThen we score a brief look at the new battle royale mode. It\u2019s set within that ring of fire threatening to engulf the environment. We don\u2019t know much about this mode other than it will NOT be playable at launch, but sometime after Battlefield V\u2019s release.\r\n\r\nA battle royale mode feels like a natural fit for the Battlefield franchise. This series excels at large-scale destruction with 100+ players on a map at any given time, so it makes a lot of sense for developer DICE to adopt this as one of the new game modes.\r\n\r\nMaybe we\u2019ll see some battle royale gameplay at Gamescom Germany which commences August 21. Battlefield V arrives on PC, PS4 and Xbox One October 19.\r\nCheck it out\r\nHave you subscribed to Man of Many? You can also follow us on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and YouTube.
