Along with the first real gameplay videos - we received the news that the hottest trend in the gaming world will not miss the old war series from EA Games
The announcement of Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 last month informed us, among other things, about the series' joining the hugely popular Battle Royale genre, where many dozens of players are "thrown" into a particularly large game map and fight among themselves with Anything they can find in the field, right down to the last survivor. Battlefield V, which was introduced a few days later, did not provide a similar statement - and made us think that its creators are rejecting the trend and do not intend to promote it. Or maybe actually yes?
At the EA Games press conference at the E3 show, we received an official announcement thatBattlefield The new one will include a new Battle Royale-like online game mode - a simple Royale neighborhood, and promises to be different from all the other offers already available on the net. There are no further details at this stage, other than a statement that this situation will contain a variety of tools vehicle, And even an emphasis on environments that can be destroyed and collaborated between players (which does not necessarily constitute a basic requirement in other titles).
The first gameplay videos of Battlefield V that were unveiled at the same time as the exhibition did not present the Royale mode, but did present small and interesting innovations to the familiar formula fromBattlefield 1, and were received with much greater sympathy than that of the initial launch video which featured mostly pre-made animated clips.
In general, it seems that too Battlefield The new and also Call of Duty: Black Ops on the way try to spread over as many groups of players as possible and provide something that will speak to everyone - these two games will include modes Battle Royale Their own hoping to conquer a bit of the huge cast of PUBG and Fortnite, but only as a secondary dose to other, more familiar game modes aimed at appealing to older fans. Is this the sure recipe for success? Next October we will find out the answers.
