Three Minutes From Battlefield 5’s Battle Royale Mode, Firestorm

Three Minutes From Battlefield 5’s Battle Royale Mode, Firestorm

The battle royale thunder might have been dominated by Apex Legends and Fortnite of late, but do either of those games let you ride tractors? No? Battlefield 5 does.

The Firestorm mode is set to officially launch next week, and as you’d expect there’s a much larger focus on vehicles than in other games. There’s vehicles for traversing the sea, air and ground, with more armoured vehicles available after squads complete joint objectives (think two people defending while another two work to open a locked bunker, which sounds an alarm while the doors open).

There’s also a tractor, which is pulling an artillery gun on the back. There’s also strongholds and safes available on the map – which take longer to open – and resupply points that squads can complete for powerful tools like tanks and V1 rockets.

The idea of specifically going around the map to complete objectives, rather than just dropping at comfortable spots around the map, is interesting. Firestorm supports up to 64 players in four-player squads or solo play, and you can see a shot of the full map below.

Firestorm will be released for free for all Battlefield 5 players early next week.
