Battlefield V is another entry in the bestselling series of first-person shooters developed by DICE, a subsidiary of Electronic Arts. The game takes place during the World War II and it returns to the roots of the series.

The action is presented from the first-person perspective. No matter which mode the players choose the battles during the game are fought on a large scale, with a variety of weapons, vehicles, machines (including planes and tanks), and secret inventions.

Singleplayer campaign

In the singleplayer story campaign, the players aren’t limited to a single protagonist. Similarly to the previous installment, the developers are presenting a few separate plotlines as part of the War Stories. One of the protagonists is a woman that belongs to the German resistance and fights the Nazis.

Co-op mode

The greatest novelty in Battlefield V is Combined Arms a cooperation mode for up to four players, who assume the roles of paratroopers working behind enemy lines. The action takes place on procedurally generated maps.

Multiplayer mode

Battlefield V of course features a multiplayer module with various competitive gameplay modes, with Grand Operations being the centerpiece. The mode features battles divided into a few phases, during which the players must complete various tasks on dynamically changing maps. There are four classes available: medic, scout, support and trooper, and all of them perform different tasks on the battlefield. The players participate in battles in Africa, Rotterdam, France etc.

Compared to the previous games in the series, the multiplayer in Battlefield V features some changes. Fortifications are among the greatest novelties they enable players to construct defenses and place heavy machine guns. In addition to that, the health bar was split into a few segments – the life regenerates only within a segment. Healing a fallen companion takes more time than usual, but he can be treated by each party member – a medic isn’t the only class able to do it.

Mechanics

Another big addition is customization – the looks and equipment of characters can be modified through the Companion system. The players can determine the gender, face, face paint, clothes, accessories, skins and accessories for weapons.

The improved movement system enables the players to throw dive in various directions during shoot-outs and, for example, keep shooting while lying on the back. Each weapon now features a different recoil pattern. The developers modified the amount of ammunition (the base number is enough only for a few shootouts, but there are chests with supplies on the maps) and grenades (their numbers were limited, but they can be thrown back at the opponents or destroyed with an accurate shot).

Technical aspects

Battlefield V is powered by Frostbite, the same engine that was used in previous entries in the series. It provides high quality three-dimensional graphics. The textures are detailed, the lighting is realistic and the destruction of the environment is even greater than before. The audio, including the realistic sounds of the battlefield, is of high quality as well.

Expansions and microtransactions

Contrary to the previous entries in the series, Battlefield V does not feature paid add-ons or a premium pass. All expansions are released free of charge.

The game features microtransactions. Players can buy cosmetic items for character personalization. The game lacks any payable bonuses that would give players an edge on the battlefield.
