Battlefield 5 Adds New Airborne Multiplayer Mode

Death from the skies.


EA and DICE are teasing a new multiplayer mode coming to Battlefield V. The "Airborne" mode will have players parachute into the combat area by plane, but it's not another battle royale. Instead, this mode is an objective-based attack/defend variant.

The details are so scant they were announced via tweet. It promises "you'll parachute into the battlefield and work with your squad to destroy enemy artillery, or defend them and make sure the threat from above is dealt with."

The paratrooper aspect seems aimed at making enemy entry points more unpredictable, which could add a wrinkle to a tried-and-true game type. EA recently began taking the wraps off of Battlefield V. Among other announcements, the company has confirmed it has no loot boxes and released its minimum PC requirements. It will release on October 13 for PC, PS4, and Xbox One.

We're likely to see some of Airborne in action at the EA Play event, taking place just before E3 in Los Angeles. EA's press conference will begin on Saturday, June 9 at 11 AM PT / 2 PM ET. You can check out our full press conference schedule to plan your watch times.
