Battlefield 5 lands in October, will do away with the 'premium pass'

Battlefield V Will Not Have a Premium Pass

EA held a reveal event for Battlefield V today and confirmed a whole lot of details. Host Trevor Noah took to the stage with producers Andreas Morell, Lars Gustavsson, and Ryan McCarthur from developers DICE and wasted no time in nonchalantly revealing that the game will indeed be going back to its roots and be set in World War II, as had been suspected.

EA is big on live services, and in its most recent financial call, CEO Andrew Wilson said Battlefield 5 will feature "additional innovations on the future of multiplayer in first-person shooters", and such innovation will be available from "launch and over time as part of a live service". The company has also confirmed that it is ditching the premium pass.

Battlefield V will release on October 19th this year, while the Deluxe Edition will release on the October 16th, and through EA Access on Xbox One and Origin Access on PC you'll be able to play from October 11th. Players will meet new characters, the men and women who changed history.

And it turns out we will be able to explore those unseen locations with some friends - yes, Battlefield V will see the return of four-player co-op gameplay. Featuring a fresh portrayal of one of mankind's biggest conflicts, Battlefield V promises to allow players to feel the unmatched intensity of all-out war and travel to unexpected but crucial moments of World War 2 through new and signature multiplayer modes, single-player War Stories and the cooperative Combined Arms.

Battlefield 5 also contains a new co-operative mode called Combined Arms. More information about Grand Operations will be shared at E3 next month. The first chapter of Tides of War starts in November and will focus on the fall of Europe.

Players that preorder any edition of the game with the Battlefield V Enlister Offer gain early access to the Open Beta and other in-game benefits including soldier customization options, access to Special Assignments starting at launch week and immediate access to five weapons to use in Battlefield 5. With a mode that so clearly leads the current gaming zeitgeist, it comes as a surprise that the reveal stream for Battlefield V didn't even mention battle royale. However, if there is no clear victor by day four, the game turns into a Final Stand mode, where the last person standing wins. So that means no more paying for modes and no more segmentation of the community.
