At launch, Battlefield V moved at a faster pace than previous games in the series. Not only could you run around quicker than before, but you could kill enemies faster, needing only a handful of bullets. This week, the game rolled out some changes to that gameplay rhythm, alongside a new hardcore playlist, and it has left the some members of the community confused and fractured.

The V-1 rocket is the scourge of Battlefield 5. It scurries in from off the map and smashes enemies, and it’s hard to avoid once it is coming for you. Reddit user osamadeep has figured out a tactic to keep that from happening.
Battlefield V’s first post-launch addition, Overture, released today after an initial delay. The expansion moves the game’s timeline forward with new story perspectives and massive, tank-focused multiplayer battles.
Overture is a mix of disappointing and exciting elements; it has terrific storytelling, but it also has one of the series’ least interesting maps. Also: Nazis.
I’ve enjoyed Battlefield V so far, but it’s about to get the one thing it’s been short on since launch: a massive increase in the number of tank-related fatalities.
Lately I’ve been playing a lot of violent games for work. In the last week, I’ve thrown knives and lit people on fire in Battlefield V, blasted people away with my revolver in Red Dead Online, and engaged in all sorts of wacky assassinations in Hitman 2.
It’s often a lot of fun, but every now and then I need to help folks instead.
Briefly: The developers of Battlefield V are looking into rebalancing the game's time-to-kill and time-to-death. In a post on the game's official Reddit, the devs wrote: "We're seeing players die too often/too quickly and get frustrated because of it. So, we're looking at how we can improve the experience for new players and veterans alike." While there are some slight weapon tweaks in the newest patch, there is no current timeline for extensive rebalancing.
Every year, the art team at DICE do some of the best work in video games, and 2018 has been no exception. Battlefront II featured some of my favourite pieces from 2017, and some of the work that went into imagining Battlefield 1 could have been hung in a War Memorial.
Given the game’s bizarre debut trailer, I wasn’t sure what to expect when I sat down with Battlefield V’s singleplayer game mode.
Battlefield V, playable now for EA Access and Origin Premier members, takes the series back to its World War Two roots with far more spectacle than when the series premiered in 2002. I was sceptical after the game's rough betas, and while I've only had a handful of hours with its latest incarnation, Battlefield V has largely proven itself. It plays fast, tells lesser-known stories, and while not everything has clicked yet, it's an intense experience.
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 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.
Video: YouTube is back, everything is fine, Battlefield has released a slick cinematic trailer for the single player experience in the upcoming Battlefield V. Warning: like previous trailers this one also has women in it, so you might want to stay away if that's likely to upset you. And as always: never read the comments.
