That means Battlefield 5 Firestorm will launch sometime today on Monday, 25 March 2019 around or before 7PM GMT+8 for regions in Southeast Asia, including Malaysia, Singapore, Thailand, and more. That also translates to roughly 7AM EST or 4AM PST in the United States.
In other related news, Firestorm developer Criterion Games recently clarified that Battlefield 5‘s battle royale mode will not be going free-to-play, unlike Apex Legends, which is also published by EA. Read the full story here.
