Battlefield V no longer taking COD on head-on

EA has announced that Battlefield V will no longer be coming out on October 19th, but will arrive a month later on November 20th. With the game previously being wedged between Black Ops 4 and Red Dead Redemption 2, it makes sense for them to give the game a bit of breathing room.

In a blog post Oskar Gabrielson, the general manager of developer DICE, said: “We’re going to take the time to continue to make some final adjustments to core gameplay, and to ensure we really deliver on the potential of Tides of War.” Tides of War is a replacement for the Premium Pass, which divided the player base, and the new mode is a live service with regular events and new maps, which uses an overarching story to keep players coming back for more.

There have been rumours that preorders for Battlefield V have been quite sluggish so far, and DICE had admitted that the much hyped new Battle Royale mode won’t be available at launch. So perhaps this delay is to enable them to get this new feature ready for when the game releases? Either way, the hope is to give the preorders a Medic-style shot in the arm. The open beta for the game goes live on September 6th, so players can get to grips with Battlefield V quite soon.

Although sociopathic man-babies are probably hoping that the delay is being used to remove all women from the game, this is very much not the case. Suck it up, losers.

I've been addicted to gaming since my parents bought an Atari console way back in the 70's. I progressed to the iconic Speccy, Amiga, and all the Playstation platforms. Having seen games evolve from single pixel bat and ball, to HD constructed environments, gaming has changed much from my early years. Having defeated the rock hard R-Type on the Speccy, the biggest challenge I've faced so far is putting up with the hordes of American teens spouting abuse in the current generation of consoles, noob indeed!
