After already having focused a fair bit on Battlefield 5s multiplayer in the games beta, DICE moved on to give out more details on the single player side of things, the War Stories, recently. Now, it seems like theyre going to start pulling back the curtain a bit on the games marquee edition this year- the battle royale mode, Firestorm.
Battlefield 5s global community manager Dan Mitre recently took to Twitter to mention that the developers, whove been pouring their passion for Battlefield into the mode, cant wait to start talking about Firestorm, before adding that an update on the mode will inherently be a part of DICEs update on Tides of War for the week.
Firestorm looks like its going to set itself apart from other battle royale titles on the market, by having its player count of 64 divvied up between 16 teams of four players each, and as such placing a focus on squad-based play, as well as Battlfield hallmarks such as vehicles and destruction.
Firestorm, however, is not being developed internally at DICE, and will instead be handled by Burnout developers Criterion. The mode wont be included in Battlefield 5 at launch when it releases for the PS4, Xbox One, and PC on November 20.
