Battlefield V’s Battle Royale Mode Gets Pushed Back to March 2019; DLC Roadmap Detailed

EA has announced today that their upcoming Battle Royale mode for Battlefield V will be getting pushed back to March 2019.

Instead of launching alongside the official release of the game, EA decided to push it back to ensure it runs well, stability issues, and whatnot. However, during their time discussing the pushback for the battle royale mode, which will be titled Trial By Fire, they also detailed their roadmap of DLC maps.

Check out the roadmap of DLC planned for the game, alongside a detailed description of Trial By Fire down below:


Battle Royale comes to Battlefield with Firestorm and the war reaches Greece as the third Tides of War chapter is unleashed in the Spring.

Firestorm: During spring, DICE and Criterion start the fire with Battlefield V’s battle royale experience. Firestorm elevates the mode by bringing in the best of what Battlefield is known for. Mix a shrinking playing field with trademark Battlefield elements such as team play, powerful vehicles, and destruction, and you get many unique Battlefield moments coming your way.

Greece map: Join a massive aerial invasion along the Cretan coast. The Allied side is desperate to cling to the island under attack by the Axis, attempting to break through the British defenses air superiority and paratroops. This map brings all-out war defined by a power struggle between tank control versus air superiority.

Again, just like the other chapters, Trial by Fire will let you tackle weekly events to earn rewards, and as you progress through the chapter, further unlocks await.

In recent news, Battlefield V’s single player campaign has been released and it showed off a good portion of what players could expect when the game releases next month. It looks like Battlefield V will follow similar suit to Battlefield 1 in the single player sense of things.

Instead of focusing on one character and one story, BFV’s campaign seems to be multiple stories told across different areas during WW2. This lets players experience the infamous war from all fronts. Check out the single player trailer out right here!

Battlefield V is set to release next month on November 13th for the PS4, Xbox On, and PC. How do you feel about the BFV battle royale getting pushed back to March? Let us know in the comments below!
