Battlefield 5’s Battle Royale Mode Won’t Launch Until Spring 2019

Battlefield 5 Firestorm battle royale Spring 2019

Battlefield 5 will be the first game in the series to feature a battle royale mode, though the mode will be launching several months after the game does. EA and EA Dice have revealed the game’s post-launch plans, which shows that the battle royale mode, Firestorm, won’t launch until Spring 2019.

This information was revealed in a new blog post from the developer, with the game’s release window starting in March. The mode is set to feature 64 players that are split into 16 4-player squads, with vehicles and destructible buildings being included. DICE’s Jonas Elfving has said that this will be an experience that elevates the battle royale genre, which will be done by incorporating the best elements of the Battlefield series.

While the developer obviously needs more time in order to launch this new mode, this is definitely a big loss when dealing with the competition. Call of Duty’s Blackout mode was available straight out of the gate this month and has received high praise, and by the time Firestorm launches it will have been on the market for basically half a year. This means Treyarch has 6 months to improve upon the mode and add new content to it, growing its playerbase and making Battlefield 5’s job that much harder.

This also comes in the wake of the Battlefield 5 controversy surrounding the questionable comments its dev made about including females in a war set in World War 2 (going so far as to put a lone woman on the cover of the game). The backlash from this has been severe, resulting in projected sales and pre-orders being well-below games from the series’ past.

The upcoming game from the creators of the Danganronpa series has found a publisher in Sony subsidiary Aniplex. However, it’s worth noting that it won’t be initially released on the PS5. It is highly likely that The Hundred Line: Last Defense Academy will be released on Sony’s system at a later date, just like Master Detective Archives: Rain Code in October. However, the development team is currently focusing on prioritizing the release of their latest title on the Nintendo Switch and PC.

Described as a strategy game, the title allows players to step into the shoes of teenager Takumi Sumino, who resides in the perpetually secure Tokyo Residential Complex. When monsters suddenly unleash chaos upon the town, Takumi finds himself thrust into the Last Defense Academy. His mission? To protect the school alongside 14 other students for a grueling 100 days.

As one would anticipate, alongside the strategic gameplay, it is crucial to foster strong relationships with your comrades. Moreover, the outcome of the game can vary greatly, with a staggering 100 possible endings contingent upon the choices you make. We will reach out to Aniplex to inquire about the possibility of a PS5 port. However, it is important to note that Aniplex operates independently from PlayStation, as it falls under the Sony Music umbrella.

The photo mode in Alan Wake 2 on PS5 doesn’t hold many surprises

Most new games these days have some kind of photography feature, so it’s hard to remember a time before Photo Modes. Some developers don’t think it’s important for players to be able to take pictures right away, so the feature is added later. One great example of this is Alan Wake 2, which now has Photo Mode thanks to a new update that is now available.

If you look at the trailer above, you can see that you can really get creative with your photos by adding cool borders, overlays, and filters. We always like photo modes, where you can move different lights around in the scene. As the video shows, Remedy really lets you use your imagination with the different colors and lighting props.

There will be an update for Elden Ring next week that sounds pretty important. The patch will come out on June 20, right before Shadow of the Erdtree goes live on June 21. “New features” and “balance adjustments” are what FromSoftware says the update will have.

Luckily, the developer went on to give more information. We went ahead and put them all together in the patch notes below:

New parts of inventory:

  • Items that were just gained will have a “!” next to them
  • There is now a new tab called “Recent Items” that lets you look at items that you just got

What’s new in Summoning Pool?

  • Now, active summoning pools will follow you to NG+
  • The newly added Map Functions Menu now lets you turn on and off individual summoning pools
  • When you use the Small Golden Effigy, it will only choose active Summoning Pools

All new hairstyles:

  • The game now has five more hairstyles to choose from. You can choose them when you make your character, with the Clouded Mirror Stand, or with Rennala’s Rebirth feature.
    FromSoftware also says that the patch will have extra features that aren’t listed here. I hope they’re a pleasant surprise!

Would you like to see any of these changes made? Are you still excited about Shadow of the Erdtree? Get ready by reading the comments below.
