Head to the Firestorm page for the latest on battle royale, reimagined for Battlefield.
Today we are dropping knowledge bombs on Firestorm, the battle royale mode coming to Battlefield™ V with a unique focus on iconic Battlefield™ squad play and vehicular combat. We're also revealing a new Battlefield V pre-order offer that includes the special Firestorm Ranger Set, inspired by (but not limited to) the mode.*
Developed by Criterion Games in partnership with DICE, Firestorm elevates battle royale 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 battle royale so intense it’ll make your lips curl.
Expect even more details on Firestorm to come as we head closer to launch, but here’s a quick primer:
Battle Royale is a Burning Thing, and it Makes a Fiery Ring
From the moment you fall, down, down, down, from the sky, to when your boots hit the ground on the largest Battlefield map ever created – the encircling ring of fire presses in on you and your squad in an all-out war for survival among 16 squads of up to four players.
There will be several types of Objectives in a Firestorm match. These will operate similar to those found in the iconic Conquest mode, except some will be found at fixed locations and some at random, with varying types of supplies, weapons, and vehicles. Work with your squad to play the Objectives and unlock the most valuable gear to increase your chances at being the last ones standing.
The Largest Battlefield Map Ever
You and your squad must rewrite the definition of squad play on a massive Battlefield map. With no weapon loadout to start with, you’ll need to loot equipment scattered throughout the map. Securing Objectives and controlling key landmarks will define most confrontations, but how you and your squad get there – and how well equipped you are when you do – will never be the same.
Command Devastating Vehicles
In Firestorm, combat vehicles like the powerful Panzer tank have now entered the battle royale fray. Getting hold of a tank can give you a great edge, but you won't be invincible – and you need to measure risk versus reward if you challenge other squads to secure the battlefield's most fearsome hardware. Jumping into a transport vehicle will give your squad an edge in speed and power. If you find something with wheels, you can drive it into battle – or plot a quick escape.
Pre-Order Bonus: Firestorm Ranger Set
Drop in to the battlefield with a unique tactical loadout by getting the Firestorm Ranger Set and its goggles, light battle fatigues, and MKIII(S) Elite Combat Dagger – the weapon for all encounters as you fight for survival. This set is a bonus for pre-ordering Battlefield V and although inspired by Firestorm, it will be usable by players across Battlefield V.
Full Pre-order Enlister Offer
There are other benefits with pre-ordering. Along with the Firestorm Ranger Set, the Battlefield V Enlister Offer – for all players who pre-order Battlefield V or Battlefield V Deluxe Edition – gives players extra soldier customization options, as well as access to Special Assignments and their rewards, starting the week of launch.
