The Anticipated WW2 FPS Launches in October
The open beta for Battlefield V is going to start on September 4th for gamers who’ve pre-ordered the game or are “members of Origin Access Premier, Origin Access Basic or EA Access”, according to an official press release.
For other Origins members on PC and console users, the open beta will begin on the 6th, per the press release.
The open beta will take place in Battlefield V’s Rotterdam map on Conquest mode along with the Arctic Fjord map on Conquest and Grand Operations mode.
The Rotterdam map takes place in the streets of the Dutch city and some gameplay of that map can be viewed in the video posted above.
Here’s a rundown of what exactly Conquest mode and Grand Operations actually are, according to Battlefield’s official website:
“Grand Operations is the ultimate multiplayer experience, designed to seamlessly showcase the maps and modes of Battlefield V. Each Grand Operation presents a powerful narrative experience inspired by historical events. You can deploy in Grand Operations at launch and as part of Tides of War, the Battlefield V live service where you’ll fight across other unseen and unplayed battlefields of World War 2.
Grand Operations is our upgraded version of Operations in Battlefield 1 – but now much greater than the sum of its parts. This modular experience takes players across fictional in-operation ‘days,’ where each day is represented by a round played on a combination of a map and mode that brings the narrative to life. The actions you, your squad, and your team take on day one will have a direct impact on the narrative and gameplay start of day two, which in result will impact day three, and so on.”
“No game mode is more synonymous with the Battlefield series than Conquest. A version of this 64-player map control mode has appeared in every Battlefield game and will return this year with all the Battlefield V features at your disposal.
Fight for key locations on a massive map where you and your team will come closer to victory when you control the majority of the flags. Build defenses and solidify your frontlines using the recently-unveiled Fortifications system, towable weaponry, and Squad Reinforcements.”
Battlefield V is scheduled to come out on October 19th for the PC, PS4 & Xbox One.
