Battlefield V is doubling down on character customization, introducing more ways for players to express themselves than ever before.
Each player has their own Company, your one-stop shop for customizing each class, combat role, vehicle, and weapon. Each combat role has unique loadouts and abilities, and over time you can get access to more combat roles. As you progress, you must make tactical decisions about how your weapons and vehicles will evolve. For instance, perhaps you will upgrade your shotgun with a heavier buckshot with a longer range, or you opt for a tighter grouping of shots.
In addition, Microsoft announced Battlefield V Xbox One S and Xbox One X bundles.
The open beta starts September 4 for those who pre-ordered and EA Access, Origin Access, and Origin Access Premier subscribers. The wider public can join the fray on September 6 on PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
For the full game, the Battlefield V Play First trial begins October 11 on Xbox One and PC. Players who buy the deluxe edition can join the fray on October 16, and the standard edition launches on October 19 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
