Just a tease of Battlefield royale at EA Play

Battlefield 5 will include a battle royale-style multiplayer mode, DICE confirmed at Electronic Arts’ EA Play press conference today.

DICE said that Battlefield 5’s take on battle royale will include the brand of action and destruction that the Battlefield franchise is known for, but offered little in the way of additional details, including how many players the mode will support and when the mode will be released. DICE said it will talk about “Battlefield royale” later this year.

EA and DICE revealed Battlefield 5 in May, confirming that the game will be set during World War II and will include a new fortifications mode, letting players build (and destroy) defensive structures. In addition to battle royale, Battlefield 5 will ship with a number of other new and refined multiplayer modes, including Combined Arms, Grand Operations and the Tides of War.

Battlefield 5 will be released on Oct. 19, and will be available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Windows PC.
