Remember when Battlefield games were named after the year they were set in? If EA still followed this convention, then the upcoming Battlefield V would be set in, what, 5AD? Not sure the Lee-Enfield was that popular back then. Anyway, I digress. For PC owners, the publisher has just released system requirements for the game, so you can know ahead of time if you'll need to upgrade or not.

Battlefield 5's Beta Feels Too Slow

I dove into the Battlefield V beta last night. While I enjoyed the tense gunfights, I'm not so sure about some of the game's changes. From shifts in how ammo is handled to changes to weapon customisation, my fun was tempered by some scepticism about what my favourite multiplayer shooter might be like at launch.

No big surprises, really, though I'm starting to wonder when Windows 7 will drop off the minimum-supported list of operating systems for AAA titles. As a staunch advocate of 7 over 10, I hope it doesn't happen for a while.

But, with long-term support from Microsoft ending at the start of 2020, and usage dropping below 30 per cent amongst gamers, it could very well disappear within the next two years.

Battlefield 5's Battle Royale Mode Won't Launch Until 2019

Battlefield V will launch on November 20 without its new battle royale or co-op modes, EA and DICE confirmed today. Instead, these highly-anticipated features, part of the game's free Tides of War post-launch updates, will land somewhere between January and March, 2019.
