Battlefield 5’s battle royale mode is called Firestorm – come watch the trailer

"Battlefield V" developer DICE dropped some hints about the game's new battle royale mode in a trailer released on Tuesday.

It's officially called Firestorm and it features 16 teams of four players all competing to be the last team standing in what DICE calls "the largest "Battlefield" map ever".

Although the most popular Battle Royale games feature 100 players there's nothing to say it can't be more or less than that, and although Activision hasn't yet confirmed how many Call Of Duty: Black Ops 4 will support it's also been implied to be less than 100. As the titular storm of fire closes in on the map, you'll be able to get the full Battlefield V experience out of this mode, including destructible buildings and driveable vehicles.

It has removed the Highlights feature introduced past year , and is bringing back a simple interface that is easy to understand. Users will have until the end of this month to download their Highlights before they disappear forever.

In addition, the trailer offers a fresh look at the War Stories single-player missions, confirming players will be engaging in ferocious tank battles in North Africa, battling in freezing conditions in Norway, fighting in the streets of Rotterdam, and slugging it out with the Nazis across the French countryside. A fifth story, the Last Tiger, will be added to the game's campaign mode post launch. It takes place in France and will deliver a steady stream of daily and weekly events. A second untitled chapter was also announced for 2019 and will "see the resistance rise up to take on the Axis threat", debuting a new location in Greece.

Prior to this trailer, EA DICE hadn't shared many details about the game's Battle Royale mode, although the mode was mentioned during EA's latest earnings call with investors. The open beta is still scheduled to start on September 6 (or September 4 for early access players).
