Battlefield V battle royale prototype in the works according to a rumour

We know very little about Battlefield V (or Battlefield 2018 if you will) right not, except for a few pieces of leaked information suggesting that the game will have a World War 2 setting and that there will be loot boxes, but they will be cosmetic only. What we do know for a fact is just how big the battle royale genre has become, so it comes as no surprise really that Battlefield V could have a battle royale mode, especially since Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 might have one as well.

Now, according to the latest rumour about Battlefield V, there is a battle royale mode prototype already in the works. The rumour comes from VentureBeat, who claims someone with knowledge of the studio (DICE) and who asked to remain anonymous, stays DICE is already testing a battle royale mode for Battlefield V, which will feature similar gameplay to PUBG and Fortnite.

As always, it is important to remember to take rumours like this one with a large helping of salt until such time as EA DICE officially reveals the game and the mode.

At the end of February this year it was reported that EA DICE is already working on the reveal trailer for Battlefield 2018. However, it is likely that we won’t see anything about the rumoured battle royale mode in the reveal trailer, as the report by VentureBeat speculates that if EA DICE decides to release the mode, it would be as a post-launch update.  

Since the rumoured mode is still just a prototype, it might obviously not make its way into the game at all and there is no other information available at the moment. Even so, a battle royale mode in almost every big shooter after the success of Fortnite and PUBG wouldn’t surprise me one bit.

The question remains if battle royale would be the right fit for Battlefield V. One thing that would be concerning for me is that everyone would just play the battle royale mode and not focus on those great modes like conquest and rush that makes the Battlefield franchise so darn fun. In South Africa, a community split between modes would definitely hurt the game, as there possibly wouldn’t be enough players to populate both standard Battlefield modes and the battle royale mode. That’s only my opinion though, so I don’t think we really need another game with a battle royale mode at the moment.

What do you think about the rumour and would you like to see a battle royale mode in the next Battlefield game? Let us know in the comment section below.
