Battlefield 5 lands in October, will do away with the 'premium pass'

Thursday, 24 May, 2018

This is something that we saw DICE begin to experiment with in Battlefield 1, eventually putting premium DLC maps on a rotating schedule for non season-pass owners.

In regards to multiplayer, EA are introducing a new live service to the Battlefield series called Tides of War, and in conjunction with the new live service there will be no multiplayer premium pass or paid expansions to Battlefield V.

As suspected, the setting for Battlefield V will be World War 2, but instead of focusing on the most famous battles from that conflict - Normandy, Berlin, Dunkirk - developer DICE is seeking to focus on the untold stories set in the unexplored corners.

However, fans that order the Battlefield V Deluxe Edition will get access three days early on October 16, while EA Access and Origin Access members will be able to jump into the Play First Trial on October 11.

In addition to the multiplayer modes and single-player War Stories campaigns, the game will include a four-player cooperative mode named Combined Arms. This is not a standalone mode, but the final round of Grand Operations.

The company explains that Battlefield 5 will be set in the lesser known regions during the second World War, including Rotterdam. While the event lacked in terms of gameplay footage, we did get a decent amount of information.

There's an update to operations now and it is called "grand operations" that will be taking players on a tour across different game modes on multiple maps.

A lot of news has been shared about EA's upcoming new shooter, Battlefield 5.
