Battlefield V releases November 20, 2018 on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC Origin platform. EA DICE has that micro transactions are not planned at launch of the game. The micro-transactions will be added post-launch into the game.
EA DICE is putting emphasis that there will be cosmetic items post-launch and that Battlefield Currency will be required to purchase. Battlefield Currency will be the micro transactions system that will be introduced at later date post-launch. DICE further mentioned:
We want players to get hands-on experience with their Company [the name for players’ collections of items], the progression system, and earning Company Coin before introducing premium currency … Balanced rock-paper-scissors gameplay has always been the foundation of the Battlefield series, and our belief is that real-world money should not enable pay-to-win or pay-for-power
DICE also highlighted a five categories progression system. All the events focus on in-game rewards.
- Career rank: Overall progression. Increasing your rank earns you Company Coin and new vehicle unlocks.
- Class rank: Unlocks new combat roles and weapons for the four classes as you level up.
