EA’s prepping the launch of Battlefield V. While the game still has a few months left, it seems like the folks over at EA has changed their mind a bit following the conclusion of the Alpha.
UPDATE: We were reached out by a PR agency for EA. They corrected our original story concluding that Battlefield V would indeed come with the Grand Operations at launch despite the contradiction of words. They said:
“Battlefield V Grand Operations is an experience that will be playable at launch and as part of Tides of War. As we are still in development of the game, things change and what we disclosed in a blog that we released at EA PLAY, when we revealed Grand Operations, has been updated to reflect that.”
Now, Grand Operations has to be one of the biggest things to come to Battlefield V. Its the way and the main reason players would want to jump into the game. The game is full of chaos and gives you some context of why and how these battles were fought. Since EA wants Battlefield V to last for more than a while, they’re taking Nintendo’s approach at building hype and longevity. In a blog post, the folks over at EA said that they would be launching a series of different operations over a the course of a few days. This in tandem, with the mayhem would introduce a whole new level of immersion and context for the game.
This modular experience takes players across fictional in-operation “days,” where each day is represented by a round played on a combination of a map and mode that brings the narrative to life. The actions you, your squad, and your team take on day one will have a direct impact on the narrative and gameplay start of day two, which in result will impact day three, and so on.
Since Grand Operations would play a key role in the longevity of the game, there would be a constant flow of updates that would be coming to the game ensuring that fresh content and context would allow players to enjoy the game with whole new level of immersion.
Considering the Fortnite has been following the same tactic called “Seasons”, it wouldn’t take time for other teams and games to catch along considering the competition a lot of these games would be facing at the time of their launch.
