Dropping later this month.
Four months after the initial release of Battlefield 5, EA and DICE will finally be releasing the promised Firestorm battle royale mode for the military FPS shooter later this month. A new official trailer for Firestorm revealed its release date: 25 March 2019.
Battlefield 5 Firestorm battle royale is set to feature the “largest Battlefield map ever”, with over 17 types of vehicles to in 64-player matches. What differentiates it from other battle royale modes in games like Call of Duty Black Ops 4 is that there will be a gradually enclosing ring of fire around the map, which means that there’s literally a ticking time clock of death.
Players can either play solo or team up in squads of four (with a total of 16 teams in a single match). The Battlefield 5 Firestorm trailer highlights several of those aforementioned 17 vehicles, as well as what awaits players behind a bunker of sorts: an unknown type of tank.
