As expected, EA's E3 2018 briefing delivered some more news about Battlefield V, the much-anticipated World War II shooter from developer DICE.

DICE did not provide a lot of specifics about its battle royale mode, but it did say it would have elements that are familiar to all Battlefield fans.

It's official. Battle Royale is coming to Battlefield 5. And of course, that means a battle royale mode. Battlefield V changes that up in a big way with a new focus on resource scarcity. Instead, it's said to arrive some time after launch as part of EA's plans for ongoing support of the game via downloadable updates. We do know that developers are promising to bring us an "experience that we haven't had before", but we've heard that before. Battlefield V will not contain loot boxes nor will it have a premium pass. "This new game will advance the state of the art for the franchise, while still delivering the signature gameplay and Battlefield moments that have captivated and grown our global community".


"Battlefield V" is the latest major blockbuster to add a Battle Royale mode - "Call of Duty: Black Ops 4" arrives this October with its own spin on the Battle Royale concept.

Focusing on the multiplayer side of the game, the trailer showcases the variety of vehicles, the impressive destruction, and the ability to move around weapon emplacements.
