Battlefield 5 developer DICE has officially announced the name of its Battle Royale mode as Firestorm. The developers also emphasized how they have tweaked and re imagined the battle royale mode compared to the popular multiplayer style.
Firestorm was announced in a new video that gave a brief overview of the gaming modes and gameplay features that will accompany Battlefield 5.
Firestorm mode features a round of 64 players in a map. It will be a squad based structure meaning there will be 16 teams of four players. DICE also adds that the buildings in the environment are destructible and repairable to enhance the gameplay. The buildings can also be destroyed by tanks as combat with tanks will also play a big part in Firestorm.
Other details that were given in the video include information on the single player campaign mode. At the launch of the game, 4 short campaigns will be available while the fifth will later be added post launch and is called The Last Tiger.
DICE also talked about the addition of the free service called Tides of War. This feature will introduce new content to the game and it will not require any premium pass. Immediately after the game’s launch, the first themed chapter called The Fall of Europe will come out and will take place in 1940’s France, with new content being introduced weekly.
A second chapter announced for 2019 will see the resistance rise up to the Axis threat, with a new location in Greece
