Editor's Note: This is an early recording on Battlefield V for PC; A full review is in the work, but we will require many more hours to fully engage and evaluate all the game has to offer. The overall perception can be changed through the review process.
The battlefield series has always been about catching the war scale, and Battlefield V delivers as expected. Large maps made of both open fields and narrow lanes pit players in chaotic matches to capture goals and empty enemy respawn counting. Different classes provide soldiers with specific abilities that provide different benefits in the right situations. And of course, thinking and flying do not just change the gameplay dynamics, but can swing the time of battle in cool hands. The first impression is that Battlefield V burns in familiarity ̵
It has been a while since the franchise set foot in World War II, but this time it does with lesser-known conflicts ahead. It is strangely refreshing to discover aspects of history being overlooked. While we have had a solid diet on the snowy Narvik map before the release, the game's collection of landscapes varied set pieces. The lush vegetation of Western Europe and the tough deserts of North Africa are shining in the wake of complete destruction. All of these battles have been inspired by history books and realized in a refined Frostbite engine, which has never been better.
Conquest has always been the battlefield's poem. Two major teams fight to control catch points across a sprawling map, which helps to speed up the drainage of the enemy's ticket draw. It's a timed mode, but it also highlights the shortcomings of some maps. I can admire the experience of Mountain 652 and the tight firefighters that take place around the catchments, but it has not been much fun to navigate the narrow paths of the map. Narvik's catch points encourage a variety of meetings with regard to distance, height and space, but instead of flowing together, the maps feel like a collection of different parts to enable these types of engagements. Metropolitan maps have certainly worked in the past of the series, but Rotterdam has not been a good show of Battlefield V's strengths, as fighting can easily turn into boring shots in the city streets.
If you get taken out, you are punished – in other words, you will be shot in the back and flanked from unsuspecting places often. While it can be frustrating, overcoming seemingly hopeless scenarios is part of the process.
Grand Operations takes you into warlike scenarios that set the teams up for a series of three consecutive games, each in another game mode and map (or variety of a map) from the same theater. This mode can be a great time perspective, but it has been the best part of Battlefield V so far as Grand Operations keeps up the moment and shakes up games just enough to keep players through the whole set of games. The easy contextualization of what both sides try to achieve, which goes into each phase, helps (ever so little) to paint a more tempting image of multiplayer, rather than having you confident in the jump.
The success of Battlefield V depends very much on being in the right place at the right time. If you are taken out of place, you will be punished – in other words, you will be shot in the back and flanked from unsuspecting places often. While it may be frustrating, overcoming seemingly hopeless scenarios are a part of the process. Adapting to situations that develop on the pitch and being a helpful teammate, are further encouraged by the four back classes: Assault, Medic, Support, and Recon. So far, a small tweak seems to help get employees. – Squadmates can revive each other regardless of class, without rejecting the importance of Medics since they can revive someone and exercise additional health packages.
Battlefield V – Top Rated Weapon Gameplay
Player Progression is spread in several ways. For one, you have career progression, which is your simple overall ranking. Then there is class trial, paving the way for unlocking equipment to further customize the release. And finally, both weapons and vehicles contain their own progression courses. There seem to be many systems at work, but the rewards seem rather weak outside of leather and individual weapon benefits.
Microtransactions are currently absent from the game so we can not comment on the business model yet. However, you earn in-game currency called Company Coins, which seems to be mainly for acquiring cosmetics like soldier uniforms and weapon camouflage. A few things like gunpants cost Company Coins, but fortunately they are cheap and require you to reach a certain level in advance.
The game is not a multiplayer-only attempt to return War Stories, the singleplayer campaign offering debuted in Battlefield 1. It serves as a tool to familiarize yourself with the fundamentals of the game while providing basic perspectives from contrasting krigates . Battlefield V itself does not start on a main menu, but in a playable teaser of every vignette from War Stories. Some of me want to fully accept the sincerity that tries to be conveyed through the narrative and the cut scenes, but I can not help but feel that the melodrama goes wrong. I've just touched the English campaign, but I hope it's doing well on the humanizing tone it seems to be going for.
Battlefield V can be rough around the edges. Player models can squeeze through the geometry of the world, and sometimes send the bodies to a ragdoll frenzy. You can see teammates being revived just for their cartoon model to freely slide 20 feet in a different direction. From now on, servers have occasional instability in terms of performance and loss (which causes choppy movements in the game). Fortunately, I have not experienced hard crashes or drops from servers.
The first impression is that Battlefield V burns in knowledge – this post does not go away from the franchise formula, but it has been a nice finish so far.  It seems like Battlefield V is a variation of a well-established theme. It maintains the serial tradition with great performance with incredible sound design, offensive weapons and large-scale multiplayer chaos. There is much more to dig into, such as the fortification system, strength training benefits, and how destruction can change map dynamics, and spending more time with the game will paint a better picture. At the end of the day, it is still Battlefield, and Battlefield V is making it a good one.
