Battlefield 5 gamers must be restless in anticipation as this action-filled game is coming out with not one, not two, but 5 free game modes. Launching as a part of the Lightning Strike update, this mode allows players to team up with up to three friends and venture out on eight PvE missions. Members of this game will also enjoy the feature of the Four Key objectives spanning over four maps.
DICE says Combined Arms is a great area where players could practice together to get more equipped and familiar with the game itself, before battling it out in the more competitive multiplayer mode. Battlefield 5 also has a variety of loadouts and difficulty settings, so that players will have a good amount of time playing the game and with the gear of their choosing. Another great addition is that in any event it gives the player Company Coins, which is vital to help the gamer unlocking new features.
Publisher EA recently shared some disappointing financial results of the game’s progress, stating it as a “difficult quarter.” Although Battlefield 5 sold 7.3 units, which many would think of as a great victory, EA expected more sales. Andrew Wilson, their CEO, came to a few conclusions as to why their sales did not reach their expectations. He cited a few reasons: the marketing campaign failed to grab the gaming audience’s interest, a tough competitive environment against other Fall games, the free-to-play Fortnite, and the decision to focus on Battlefield 5’s single player mode instead of focusing all their time and efforts into completing the Firestorm battle royale mode.
Firestorm won’t be out until March, but EA just launched Apex Legends from Respawn and has gained massive success. The studio will release more Combined Arms missions in later updates as well as the multiplayer Rush mode, which will be out for a limited of time on March 7. The updates will also come with improvements like increasing the speed when dragging allies to safety, so don’t miss out. Battlefield 5 will be available this week on PC, Xbox One and PS4.
