Battlefield V hopper selvfølgelig også med på battle royale-bølgen. Deres spiltype er navngivet Firestorm, og der er nu kommet et væld af nye detaljer.

Den største overraskelse er nok, at det faktisk ikke er DICE selv, der står for udviklingen af Firestom. Det er Criterion Games, som vel nok er bedst kendt for deres Burnout-serie. De har dog været med inde over Battlefront II, så de er ikke fremmede for DICE-shooterne.

Firestorm kommer til at have plads til 64 spillere i 16 forskellige squads, og det finder sted på den største Battlefield-bane til dato. Den største forskel fra andre spil i genren er jo nok Battlefields maskiner, der altid har været en del serien, samt mulighederne for at ødelægge banens bygninger. Det skal nok blive interessant at mose igennem en bygning fyldt med campers i den tonstunge Panzer kampvogn!

Herunder kan du læse lidt mere om, hvad DICE og Criterion Games leverer i deres udgave af battle royal, direkte fra hestens mund:

Today we are dropping knowledge bombs on Firestorm, the battle royale mode coming to Battlefield™ with a unique focus on iconic Battlefield™ squad play and vehicular combatWe’re also revealing a new Battlefield V pre-order offer that includes the special Firestorm Ranger Set, inspired by (but not limited to) the mode.*

Developed by Criterion Games in partnership with DICE, Firestorm elevates battle royale by bringing in the best of what Battlefield is known for. Mix a shrinking playing field with trademark Battlefield elements such as team play, powerful vehicles, and destruction, and you get battle royale so intense it’ll make your lips curl.

Expect even more details on Firestorm to come as we head closer to launch, but here’s a quick primer:

  • Wage war in a ring of fire that slowly shrinks the battlefield – don’t get trapped
  • Fight to be the last infantry squad standing of 64 players in 16 squads
  • The game-changing addition of Battlefield vehicles lets you wipe out unsuspecting squads with a tank or drive to survive with transport vehicles
  • Work together as a squad to secure objectives that grant better and rare gear
  • Clash on the biggest Battlefield map to date
  • Transform the map with Destruction
  • Feel battle royale brought to life with stunning Battlefield graphics and audio
  • Matches are tied to your Company and Battlefield V progression

Battle Royale is a Burning Thing, and it Makes a Fiery Ring

From the moment you fall, down, down, down, from the sky, to when your boots hit the ground on the largest Battlefield map ever created – the encircling ring of fire presses in on you and your squad in an all-out war for survival among 16 squads of up to four players.

Firestorm Objectives

There will be several types of Objectives in a Firestorm match. These will operate similar to those found in the iconic Conquest mode, except some will be found at fixed locations and some at random, with varying types of supplies, weapons, and vehicles. Work with your squad to play the Objectives and unlock the most valuable gear to increase your chances at being the last ones standing.

The Largest Battlefield Map Ever

You and your squad must rewrite the definition of squad play on a massive Battlefield map. With no weapon loadout to start with, you’ll need to loot equipment scattered throughout the map. Securing Objectives and controlling key landmarks will define most confrontations, but how you and your squad get there – and how well equipped you are when you do – will never be the same.

Command Devastating Vehicles

In Firestorm, combat vehicles like the powerful Panzer tank have now entered the battle royale fray. Getting hold off a tank can give you a great edge, but you won’t be invincible – and you need to measure risk versus reward if you challenge other squads to secure the battlefield’s most fearsome hardware. Jumping into a transport vehicle will give your squad an edge in speed and power. If you find something with wheels, you can drive it into battle – or plot a quick escape.

 

Mange har været yderst positive over den igangværende betatest af Battlefield V, der dog ikke har budt på Forestorm spiltypen. Det lyder dog til, at det velkendte Battlefield-gameplay er både intakt og velfungerende. Og ganske som er tilfældet med Call of Duty: Black Ops 4, bliver det ganske interessant at se, hvad genrens gamle mastodonter kan gøre med nutidens absolut mest populære spiltype.

Battlefield udkommer den 20. november 2018 til PC, Xbox One og PlayStation 4 efter den “lille” forsinkelse.

6 KOMMENTARER

  1. #1 Yeah, det er jo ikk 100. Men det kommer jo også an på, hvor stort mappet er. Og 9/10 battle royal kampe i PUBG, ser jeg ofte ikke andre spillere, før vi er nede på 30-40 spillere tilbage på kortet. Så måske kan det fungere fint. Det må tiden vise.

  2. #1 Behøver der være flere? PUBG har 100 spillere og 60 af dem hotdropper så du vader rundt i 15 minutter uden noget action.

    PS: 16 squats? Lyder hårdt
