The Reveal Has Arrived! Battlefield V and What We Know…

So it’s finally here… Battlefield V Reveal Trailer was shown last night during EA & DiCE Reveal Event and there was a lot of features discussed. Some that you may have missed. This is what we know so far…  Battlefield V will be available to play for the first time at EA Play, EA’s satellite event to the E3 gaming conference in Los Angeles, which is taking place a couple of weeks from now. The deluxe edition of the game goes on sale on October 16th for Xbox One One, PlayStation 4, and PC, while the standard edition will be available on the same platforms on October 19th.

Battlefield V Reveal

• No Season Pass

• Launch locations are France, Africa and Rottedam and North Africa desert

• Coop Mode called Combined Arms

• Single player War Stories return

• Fortifications are things like sand bags, trenches, tank stoppers. Only supports can build offensively defense fortifications such as machine guns, field cannons and are much faster at building everything.

• Predetermined areas to build such as at flags, can rebuild destroyed buildings

• Attrition system – health bar is in stages, only regen up to closet stage not to 100 anymore

• Physical interactions – every action in the game requires a player interact for things like medkits, spotting, ammo, ledge grabbing (example: healing requires walking over to a health pack, character animation to pick it up, then start healing)

• No more HUD/map spotting, spotting is based on movement/changes around you

• Attrition system – much less ammo on spawn, out of ammo after a few fights, but more ways to resupply ammo in the battlefield from packs, crates, or grabbing small amounts of ammo off of bodies (all requires physical interactions)

• Revive system has a full on animation, takes a few seconds to complete, no more revive trains, takes time to complete

• Ragdolls are server side, can now drag a downed player’s body elsewhere

• Any class can do a squad revive, takes longer than a medic revive, does not give full health points

• Can call for help when down such as in the trailer

• Ragdolls (player bodies) effect the environment, push down grass etc.

• Gunplay completely changed

• No more visual recoil

• Each gun has a unique recoil pattern that can be learned and mastered

• Bipods easier to use and setup

• Bullet penetration through thin wood, sheet metal, walls

• Movement change, can now dive froward, backward, left and right similar to R6 Siege prone system

• Diving has a delay to prevent dolphin diving

• Crouch sprinting is in the game

• Can burst out of widows and commando roll, no destroying windows first

• Can catch, throwback or shoot grenades

• Less grenades because less ammo

• Can tow items in the game with vehicles such as previously stationary anti-air guns, teammate can use an anti-air gun while you tow it with a vehicle

• For example, can drive a tiger tank towing a field cannon behind it or a truck towing ammo crate to resupply teammates on the front line

• Destruction explodes inwards or outwards based on where the destruction happens. Throw a grenade inside of the building? The explosion sends things outside of it. Outside of it? Breaks inwards.

• Tank driving into a building slowly destroys a building, walls slowly crack/fall, not instant

• Heavily focused on squad play, instant placed in squad when joining a game

• New squad spawning system, squad deploy system that shows what squad mates are doing in third person in real time before the tactical map screen, so spawning on squad is kicker than spawning on tactical map screen

• Since squad spawning/deploying is faster than tactical map, squad wipes are serious

• Squads accumulate points that can be spent on “squad call-ins”, only squad leader can spend them in

• Squad Call-ins are V1 or JB2 rockets as seen in the trailer, supply drops with ammo/health, a smoke barrage, heavy weapon pickups (not hero kits), squad only vehicles such as Churchill crocodile flamethrower tank or the Sturm tiger

• Elite classes are gone

• Behemoths are gone

• Large, non-fatal explosions can knock a player over

• Four classes are back: assault, medic, scout, support

• Create a solider, add them to a company of soldiers, then can customize things like gender, face look, face paint, outfit, accessories, etc. and assign them a class archtype

• Class archetypes highly customizable

• Can be an assault that specializes in anti-tank or anti-infantry only, or a mix of both, etc.

• Highly specialized archetypes called exotics such as a recon paratrooper, stealthy short-range behind enemy lines person who uses a suppressed SMG and silent gadgets like pistols and garrotes comes with silent footsteps and throwing knives

• Can change and add specialization trees such as agility, flak armor, suppressive resistance

• The more you play a class more you get more specializations/archtypes within said class
