Players can choose from a large selection of game modes at launch. These include classic modes like Conquest, Team Deathmatch, Frontlines, and Domination accompanied by new modes Breakthrough, Airborne, and Final Stand. Finally, there’s the controversial Conquest Assault, which was introduced in Battlefield 1. Rounding out the games modes is Grand Operations, a multi-stage game mode that takes players through the largest campaigns of the war.

These modes will be fought across eight maps at launch. Participate in one of the biggest tank battles in North Africa, survive the freezing landscapes of Norway, fight in the packed streets of Rotterdam, and battle across the French countryside.

DICE also provided the first details about Battlefield V’s Battle Royale mode. Titled Firestorm, the mode splits 64 players into 16 teams of four. Each squad must work together to be the last squad standing. Several Battlefield features are present in Firestorm, including a large array of weaponry, vehicles and destructible buildings.

Single player War Stories return. These bite-sized vignettes follow unlikely heroes as they tackle the effects of the war. At launch, players can enjoy four War Stories; Prologue, Nordlys, Tiralleur, and Under No Flag. A fifth, The Last Tiger, arrives after launch.

Finally, there’s Tides of War, Battlefield V’s free post-launch content plan. Tides of War takes players on a journey through World War II, adding new maps, weapons, and gadgets. The first chapter, Fall of Europe, comes after launch and follows the fall of France. The second chapter, which launches early 2019, focuses on Greece.

Battlefield V is out November 20 on PS4, Xbox One, and PC. The open beta kicks off today for those who pre-ordered the game, and September 6 for everyone.
