With Battlefield 5, the first-person shooter series returns to the World War II scenario on the PC for the first time since the Battlefield 1942 release (Xbox 360 and PS3 still have the download title Battlefield 1943).
As usual, the big multiplayer battles between up to 64 players take place on land, water and in the air. The war stories known from Battlefield 1 return and form the singleplayer part of the game, while new is the co-op mode for up to four players called Combined Arms.
In multiplayer, the operations are expanded from the predecessor to Grand Operations. These large-scale battles span multiple maps and game modes whose output influences each other. In addition to Team Deathmatch, Domination and Conquest, there is also a new game mode with Airborne.
For the first time in the Battlefield series, players can build their own fortifications such as trenches, bagguns or even guns or bridges in Battlefield 5 multiplayer. In addition, there are many new animations for movements, picking up medicine and ammunition or pulling wounded teammates in cover. Life points do not regenerate completely automatically, but only up to a certain limit. Battlefield 5 puts more focus on teamwork and automatically places players in a squad whose members can revive each other without a Medic. The squad leader may also request certain abilities such as a special tank or a V1 missile if the group has earned enough points by successfully completing mission objectives.
A premium model is no longer available in Battlefield V, instead the game is regularly expanded with maps, weapons and vehicles via the free Tides of War. The Tides of War follow the historical course of the war, open up new fronts and bring more factions into play.
With Firestorm, Battlefield also gets a Battle Royale mode for the first time in the history of the series: 64 players fight for survival on the biggest battlefield map to date, which also features vehicles like tanks and proven dynamic destruction.
