Thank you for being a part of the Battlefield™ V Open Beta. It’s been great to see you deploy on the rowdy streets of Rotterdam and among Narvik’s snowy scenery, getting a taste of how Battlefield V will operate on its November release.
We appreciate your feedback and it will come to good use – in some cases it already has. Next week, we’ll share a detailed article on our learnings from the Open Beta, together with a new, beta-focused episode of Battlefield V Dev Talks. Until then, here is a high-level list on issues we’re addressing.
Squad play and Matchmaking – Several changes are already in place and additional improvements will be made to secure the best possible launch experience.
Attrition – Scarcity of ammo and health is something we want to get just right, and the Open Beta gave us a lot of info on how to balance it.
Visibility – Distance haze, lighting, general contrast and other visibility aspects are being tinkered with, letting you see your enemies better in the world.
Death Experience – We’re adjusting bleed out and spawn times to make your virtual deaths as good as virtual deaths can be.
Vehicles – Damage states, movement, and weaponry of tanks and other vehicles are being tweaked.
TTK and TTD – We’re adjusting automatic weapons to make the Time to Kill and Time to Death as fair and fun as possible.
Progression and Customization – We’re working on making the user journey one that’s smooth and personal.
Chat Profanity Filter on PC – We are evaluating the Open Beta feedback and are making many adjustments for launch.
Thanks again for your participation and your feedback. Stay tuned for more Open Beta learnings and make sure to follow @EA_DICE on Twitter for insights straight from our development team as part of our Dev Takeovers.
