Battlefield V Battle Royale Said to Be in The Works at DICE

Battlefield 2018 Set During World War II

Quick, pick a side in Fortnite vs. PUBG, because the field's about to get a lot more crowded.

EA's DICE studio is testing a battle royale mode for Battlefield V that features similar gameplay to megahits like Fortnite and PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds, according to someone with knowledge of the studio who asked to remain anonymous. The key word is "prototype" - this hasn't been greenlit for full development, and is unlikely to be done in time to meet the game's release date later this year.

So the battle royale gold rush is on, and DICE is investigating how a massive, last player-standing mode would work with its current mechanics.

For those unaware, such games involve 100 players arriving on the battlefield and fighting to take each other out, as the map's size keeps on shrinking.




With the ongoing craze of Battle Royale games, it seems even AAA titles are going to dip themselves and bask in the recent boom of this genre.

Per the report by Grubb, if the mode is given the go-ahead by EA, it could end up in the game as a free update, but we'll have to wait and see before we jump the gun on any speculation. It is not a surprise to see many developers chose to work on a battle royale project, to be honest. the genre is getting bigger and bigger every day. DICE is certainly capable of achieving this with Battlefield V, and doing so with a game that features the Frostbite Engine could create plenty of opportunities. And today would write about hearing about Battle Royale Battlefield for 2018.

But EA of all people should be aware of the dangers of chasing trends; the firm was also in on the MOBA craze with its own, Dawngate, but that ended up being cancelled as the market had already solidified with League of Legends and DOTA 2. Anything is possible, though.
