Battlefield 5 is getting into the battle royale business with its new Firestorm mode, which will be available to all players on March 25. Check out the reveal trailer HERE.

The battle royale mode was unofficially revealed last week, when a leaked tutorial video was uploaded to YouTube. It’s still there, and you can give it a watch to see some proper in-game footage.

As well as squishy humans duking it out, vehicles will prowl the battlefields. If you’re feeling vulnerable, hop in a tank. They’re not indestructible, though, and make you a big target. Some vehicles will be all about thick armour and firepower, while others will let you get around the map quicker, while offering a bit of extra protection from flying bullets. 17 types of vehicles will be available, including a helicopter and a tractor.

As we reported first on Monday, a Battlefield V Patch would be pending, offering NVIDIA DLSS Support for GeForce RTX graphics cards. EA and DICE just issued the patch and that will enable DLSS, and some more.

DLSS requires Tensor cores, ergo you need an RTX based graphics card for the feature to work. DICE mentioned DLSS as a feature “which uses deep learning to improve game performance while maintaining visual quality.” More tweaks have been made like support for ultrawide monitors on the PC, particularly with the “Rotterdam” map.

If you own an RTX card, the patch will auto install. We recommend you to install the new GeForce 418.91 WHQL drivers (download) which supports DLSS, actually, it is a mandatory install for it to work. I’ve quickly ran some numbers. On our GeForce RTX 2080 Ti with today’s released driver DLSS would not enable. After switching towards GeForce RTX 2080, it did kick in, but only at Quad HD and Ultra HD. At Full HD, the feature disabled itself. The default BF-V TAA seems to get automatically disabled once you select DLSS.

Guru3D has written a Battlefield V: DLSS PC Performance article in which they check out the benefits and disadvantages of what is called AI AA in this small first update with Battlefield V.

battlefield-5From jumping into a Panzer tank and piloting a Spitfire in the skies to supplying squadmates and building new fortifications to protect the team, this is World War 2 like only Battlefield can do. Battlefield V, the highly anticipated new game in this award-winning franchise, has been released from DICE, an Electronic Arts Inc. (NASDAQ:EA) studio. During the early access periods, the game has driven the most subscriptions for PC players on Origin Access Premier and Origin Access Basic. Battlefield V has also seen global critical acclaim with Screen Rant calling it “the best shooter of 2018” and Jeuxvideo.com claiming “the king of FPS is back.”

“With Battlefield V we set out to build the best playing game in the franchise’s history. Few other games are able to provide the kind of amazing and unscripted moments you experience in Battlefield, like pulling off crazy stunts in a plane while flying through a blown-up bridge as tanks and soldiers battle it out on the ground. The team here at DICE can’t wait to see what Battlefield V becomes in the hands of our community,” said Oskar Gabrielson, GM at DICE. “We have also set out to create a game that will grow and evolve over time, and we’re going to keep tinkering with the gameplay, and provide new experiences to our community for a long time to come.”

Battlefield V gives fans the chance to play the untold stories and visit the unexpected locations of WW2. In multiplayer, DICE builds upon the deepest and most immersive Battlefield experiences yet with massive gameplay changes and the development of new core systems. Whether it’s by foot, driving one of the many different armored vehicles or going swiftly by plane, squad up with three others to play the objectives in any given mode and choose between the recon, assault, medic or support class for whatever the team needs most. Players can prepare for battle across the eight maps and eight multiplayer modes and learn more about the game’s new innovations by visiting the Boot Camp.

In single player, Battlefield V brings back the acclaimed War Stories from Battlefield 1 to portray different people facing brutal warfare filled with Battlefield moments. Players will witness the war through the eyes of the men and women who helped change the world forever as they take on untold stories of human drama. Fight as a Norwegian resistance fighter in Nordlys, a Senegalese French Colonial fighter in Tirailleur or a British criminal in the Special Boat Services looking for a chance at redemption in Under No Flag.

On December 4, players can jump into the new single-player War Story, The Last Tiger, a new tank-focused map called Panzerstorm, the introduction of the Practice Range and a chance to stand out on the battlefield with vehicle customisations for both tanks and planes. Additionally, in the same week, Battlefield V will begin time-limited events from the first chapter of its new live service commitment to players, Tides of War. Each new chapter throughout Tides of War will feature evolving gameplay, an expanding world, new experiences and game improvements all completely free, bringing a new Battlefield with each one.

Chapter 2: Lightning Strikes, debuting in January, will see the introduction of the cooperative Combined Arms mode and the return of Rush and Squad Conquest. Launching in March, Chapter 3: Trial by Fire will see the introduction of the highly anticipated Battle Royale mode, Firestorm, and a new map set in Greece. Beyond the first chapters, more experiences will keep coming as the battlefields keep evolving.

Battlefield V is now available both digitally and in stores on Xbox One, PlayStation®4 and Origin™ on PC.

EA has released a new trailer for Battlefield 5 that showcases the multiplayer maps that will be available at its launch. According to its description, players will fight through the unexplored settings of World War 2 on maps that will challenge their squad in epic multiplayer experiences. Battlefield 5 is currently scheduled for a November 20th release and its battle royale mode, Firestorm, will be released in Spring 2019. The game will also offer 60hz server tickrates on the PC, and 120hz in smaller modes.

battlefield-5This evening before gamescom DICE announced that the Battlefield V Open Beta will begin on September 4 for early access and September 6 for all players on Origin for PC, Xbox One and PlayStation®4. The Open Beta will showcase the soon-to-be-iconic Rotterdam map on Conquest mode as well as the Arctic Fjord map on both Conquest and Grand Operations. Revealed just last week, the Rotterdam map will immerse players in a battle fought throughout the streets of Holland where the game’s dynamic physicality and destruction will be on full display. New to the Battlefield franchise, Grand Operations is a multiplayer experience across multiple maps and modes that that takes players through a powerful narrative journey inspired by historical events. All of this Open Beta content can be previewed by attendees of gamescom this week, where it will be playable in Hall 6 on the show floor on PC and Xbox One X.

Also, this evening, DICE showcased NVIDIA’s new RTX technology announced during NVIDIA’s press conference with a jaw-dropping live demo of Battlefield V on PC, one of the first games being developed on the NVIDIA RTX platform to feature real-time ray tracing as a rendering technique. Previously used to pre-render lifelike worlds in movies, ray tracing with the NVIDIA RTX platform brings real-time, cinematic-quality rendering to video games. In Battlefield V, NVIDIA RTX allows DICE to imitate the way light is reflected in the real world enhancing the fidelity of reflective surfaces in every level, map and locale in the game. This will ensure Battlefield V feels more lifelike and dynamic, leading to a more immersive experience that makes players feel like the battle is unfolding in a full 360-degrees around them. The use of real-time ray tracing in Battlefield V is made possible by NVIDIA’s new GeForce RTX 20 series GPUs.

It’s always been important to us as a studio to stay one step ahead as we look to increase the graphical fidelity in games,” said Christian Holmquist, Technical Director at DICE. “With this new NVIDIA RTX platform, more detail than ever before can now be seen on the battlefield, from recognizing the flash of a muzzle being reflected off a car to spotting the detailed reflection of a devastated facade in a splash of water on the ground. Things in the environment will feel more lifelike and real and all-out war will never look the same.

We’ve been close partners with DICE for many years and we’ve spent much of the last year deeply embedded with their team in Stockholm to bring this vision to life,” said Tony Tamasi, Senior Vice
President of Content and Technology at NVIDIA. “With the help of NVIDIA RTX, DICE is creating a revolutionary moment for computer graphics in Battlefield V, as ray tracing has been used in film for years and has long been considered the Holy Grail for real-time rendering in games.

Building upon this partnership with NVIDIA, both NVIDIA Ansel and Highlights will be also be integrated into Battlefield V for GeForce PC gamers. NVIDIA Highlights automatically captures a gamer’s greatest gaming achievements in video. Integrated directly with the game, it knows precisely when that magic moment will happen and automatically records it using NVIDIA ShadowPlay technology, making it easier to capture those Only in Battlefield moments.

NVIDIA Ansel, available in the single-player War Stories in Battlefield V, is a revolutionary way to capture in-game photography. Users can compose shots from any position, adjust with post-process filters, capture HDR images in high-fidelity formats, and share their screenshots with the world.

A Battlefield V Deep-Dive on the Battlefield Website takes a detailed look at gameplay details in Battlefield V, the upcoming installment in the Battlefield series of military shooters. Here’s the introduction explaining the goals of the article:

Battlefield™ V is a vast game. It will have many improvements to the classic formula, as well as new additions and features. Following the reveal of the next chapter in the Battlefield saga, we know you’ve been eager to get a lot of gameplay questions answered.

Let’s jump right in to the core gameplay changes and improvements that are coming in October. Remember, we are still working on the game, and the specifics of many features will evolve over time.

Two Key Elements: Immersion and Squad Play

A lot of ground will be covered in this post, but it will all center around two common denominators of the Battlefield V gameplay philosophy: immersion and squad play.

Now, immersion can mean many things. For Battlefield V, it spans visuals and sounds, your soldier’s movement, combat situations, how you will shape the environment and vice versa, and how players will act and react more naturally than before.

Let’s start with how you, as an infantry soldier deploying into battle, will maneuver through the battlefield.
