Battlefield 5 Battle Royale Mode Rumored Ahead of EA Play Reveal

Battlefield 5 Battle Royale Mode Rumored Ahead of EA Play Reveal

This probably won't surprise you, but DICE is reportedly working on a battle royale mode they intend to implement in the next Battlefield game. It is a slower version of the RPG, but it allows Fortnite Battle Royale players to ride the rocket by firing it themselves or from teammates firing it without exploding. Battlefield 5 has been rumored for a few months now but the addition of a battle royale mode could bring something totally different to the series.

We are seeing some reports of meteor fragments entering the map atmosphere in Fortnite Battle Royale, as shown briefly in the video above.


According to someone with knowledge of the studio, DICE is trying to see if they can get a mode similar to that of Fortnite and PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds to work in their upcoming title.

For those unfamiliar with the game, "Fortnite Battle Royale" is completely free to play, and highly accessible: It's a free download on the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC, and even iPhone and iPad. Instead, Treyarch will focus on the game's multiplayer and Zombie modes.


EA is yet to announce the game.

As Fortnite Season 3 comes to an end and players start looking at Fortnite Season 4, the comet that has been spotted on the Fortnite Battle Royale map is now joined by many meteors that are galling in the game. The key word is "prototype" - this hasn't been greenlit for full development, and is unlikely to be done in time to meet the game's release date later this year.


These players had their wish granted for what seemed a limited amount of time, as Epic Games removed the guided missile from the game in order to fix an animation issue with the weapon. "Let us know how you would like to see private matches used". The reports add that this year's Call of Duty may be the first game in franchise to leave out campaign for a battle royale mode.
