Which might mean Friday September 7 for the ANZ region, but either way best to pencil that weekend in for some WW2-era Battlefield V action. This follows on from the Closed Alpha that recently took place and will feature 64-player Conquest mode on both the Rotterdam map, set in Holland, and the Arctic Fjord map, set in Norway. Grand Operations and the new story-driven Tides of War modes are also expected to be included.
Here are the details from the announcement.
What Multiplayer Maps and Modes Can I Play? Players can jump into the up 64-player Conquest mode on the Rotterdam map, set in the embattled Holland city, or the Arctic Fjord map, set in icy Narvik, Norway. In Conquest, you must battle for control of key locations on a massive multiplayer map, using the new Fortifications, towable weaponry, and Squad Reinforcements system.
Two “days” of Grand Operations are also available to players in the Open Beta. In this modular narrative experience inspired by historical events, each day is represented by a round of play, and player actions have a direct impact on the next round. Up to 64 players can deploy in the Airborne and Breakthrough modes on the Arctic Fjord map.
A Quick Ride on the Tides of War A preview of the Tides of War — the ever-evolving journey through WW2 featuring a new narrative every few months — also awaits players in September. Each chapter of Tides of War is designed to focus on an aspect of the era, with unique gameplay experiences to drive players forward.
A five-part Tides of War chapter will be part of the Open Beta. Players who complete the chapter will earn an exclusive in-game Dog Tag in Battlefield V at launch.
The Tides of War stuff sounds interesting, but either way it'll be cool to finally go hands-on with some of the new features coming in the classic Conquest mode. Especially the Rotterdam map which is highlighted in the Battlefield V Gamescom trailer.
In keeping with Battlefield history, those that pre-order will get early access to the beta a few days before it opens up to everyone.
