Battlefield 5's Battle Royale Mode Not Coming Until Spring 2019

Based on the updated roadmap for BFV, we're getting eight maps and eight modes at launch, as well as the "War Stories" single player component.

While fans will have to wait a lot longer to play Firestorm than originally thought, DICE also outlined the first two chapters of the TIdes of War that will hold players over until the Spring. But this narrative is no hero's story.

The next step is Chapter 2: Lightning Strikes, which has a January 2019 until March 2019 window. Combined Arms allows you to join up to three friends for a series of co-op, Combat Strike missions across several maps, facing off against AI. What is surprising is that the mode won't be available at launch - or even this year. Squad Conquest, on the other hand, is a 16-player mode where two teams of two squads attempt to capture and hold the flags in a mini version of Conquest.

HP has unveiled its new Spectre x360 product lineup featuring the new Spectre x360 13 and Spectre x360 15 convertible notebooks. The 13-inch model can optionally be purchased with gigabit-class 4G LTE for on-the-go high-speed mobile data access.

"Battle Royale comes to Battlefield with Firestorm and the war reaches Greece as the third Tides of War chapter is unleashed in the Spring", DICE explains in the update. In contrast to Battlefield 1, which initially required players to purchase a Premium Pass to receive its expansions, all future maps, modes, and other content for Battlefield V will be free for all players.

The Overture brings weekly events and rewards that will keep highlighting the finer details of Battlefield V gameplay. Iconic WW2 hardware like vehicles, weapons, and gadgets will also be added. With each chapter, the game will be expanded with new modes, maps, features, and more. In this chapter, multiplayer will receive the Panzerstorm map, focusing on tank battles in Belgium.

Game Improvements: Quality of life updates will regularly improve Battlefield V, fix bugs, and balance the game.
