Fire! Doobey dooo! I need you to burn, and it seems like my want will quickly be granted. A leaked trailer for Battlefield V‘s upcoming battle royale mode (foolishly known as Firestorm fairly than Battlefield Royale) hit the online final evening. There are tanks. There are weapons of various tiers. There is fireplace.
There are not any surprises, in different phrases, however I’m nonetheless eager to heat my mitts on this. And hope they don’t burn.
Trailer first, ideas to observe.
So. Dice have given us a deadlier ring, targets that summon autos, and the power to fireside pistols after we’ve been knocked down. Neat.
I do like how the closing ring is one thing to be feared. We’re used to forcefields that nip away at well being bars like overly enthusiastic garra rufa, however right here the shrinking circle is one thing from which you merely should flee. That does preclude some fascinating ways: simply final evening I had an Apex Legends game the place my crew opted for a prolonged jog by the ring, finally ambushing two squads without delay. We misplaced the battle, however we nonetheless felt cool.
I’m intrigued to see how all that fleeing impacts the preventing, although. Plus that ring earns factors for trying way more spectacular than different games, as Battlefield is wont to do.
It appears attachments aren’t a factor, with weapons as an alternative packing scopes and recoil reductions based mostly on their tier. That implies much less of an emphasis on looting, which is ok with me. Although Brendy was in that Apelegs game and he insisted the scavenging was his favorite half, so boo hoo for him I assume.
As for the remaining… yep, that’s what I anticipated Battlefield Royale to seem like. I doubt it’s going to tempt me away from Apelegs in the long run, however a tenser, slower final man standing fest appears like a pleasant change of tempo.
Dice introduced that Firstorm will likely be out in Spring. That means it might be out any time earlier than the tip of May, however this trailer and the current look of an in-game Firestorm Daily Order challenge suggests it will likely be sooner fairly than later.
