Electronic Arts and developer DICE confirmed that Battlefield V is getting a battle royale mode at some point in the future.

Today's press conference also reiterated the message of "no loot boxes, no premium passes" for the upcoming first person shooter. Instead of asking players to pay extra to get new maps, every update is now free, and developer DICE is focusing on cosmetic items as a way to generate revenue from the game as an ongoing platform.

EA came to play on the weekend before E3 2018.

Battlefield V is set against the backdrop of World War II. His tweet seems lighthearted enough, but considering how PUBG Corp. and Greene have responded in the past to games joining in on the fun with new battle royale modes, it would make sense that he's not too happy with Battlefield joining Call of Duty with the new mode. The companies made this announcement at the EA Play event in Hollywood today as part of a reintroduction of Battlefield V to fans. Players will have the ability to dive and smash through windows and move around heavy turrets from their fixed position. The game will also have classic modes including Conquest and Grand Operations, which will recreate real historical battles that will play out over multiple maps and modes.

Battlefield V launches on 19th October for Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC with three day early access on 16th October for Deluxe Edition owners.
