Battlefield 5's Release Date, Deluxe Edition For PS4 / Xbox One / PC Confirmed
The new WWII shooter arrives on October 19.
EA and DICE gave the world its first look at the newest installment in the Battlefield series, Battlefield V, during a big livestream presentation recently. Along with revealing the first details about the game's setting and features, the publisher announced when the highly anticipated shooter will hit the market: October 19.
Like many contemporary titles, Battlefield V will launch in two packages. The standard edition retails for $60 and will be available on the aforementioned date, while the $80 Deluxe edition gives players access to the title three days early, on October 16. The latter also includes five sets of paratrooper outfits, an assortment of Special Assignments, and 20 weekly Airlift supply drops, each of which contains one customization item.
As previously rumored, Battlefield V takes place during World War II, making it the first installment in the series to be set during the conflict since 2009's Battlefield 1943. It's also the first game in the series since Battlefield 3 to feature a cooperative campaign, called Combined Arms, which allows up to four players to work together on missions. Like Battlefield 1, the upcoming installment boasts a single-player War Stories campaign.
During the same livestream, EA also revealed that it won't be offering a premium DLC pass for Battlefield V, as it did for Battlefield 1. Instead, the publisher will roll out a regular schedule of post-launch content to all players for free as part of its Tides of War live service. However, players will still be able to purchase cosmetic items in the game.
Battlefield V is coming to PS4, Xbox One, and PC via Origin. Players will have a chance to try the game ahead of its launch on October 11 through the EA Access Play First Trial. You can read more about the upcoming shooter in our roundup of everything we know about Battlefield V.
