Battlefield V Royale Mode Announced to Launch After October 19

Today, during EA Play 2018's lineup of game announcement, Battlefield V was confirmed, perhaps unsurprisingly, to have its own Battle Royale mode. Battlefield V will allow gamers to shape the sandbox of war.

Back in April we reported that both the latest Call of Duty and Battlefield games may feature a battle royale mode.

It was reiterated that Battlefield V will not include a premium pass program that the previous installments offered, and its release date is set for October 19, 2018.
