Battlefield 5’s battle royale mode will launch this month

Battlefield 5 servers might see an influx of activity on March 25 as its battle royale mode, called Firestorm, launches.

In Battlefield style, this isn’t just about soldiers duking it out from house to house. Add in tanks, helicopters, tractors and much more to get around the map and either turn yourself into a big target, or mow down enemy squads.

Firestorm takes place on a map made for 64 players to fight it out, either alone or in 4-player squads. Besides the normal shrinking circle and loot, players can claim objectives to earn rewards, like a beacon that calls in a V-1 rocket strike.

It will be interesting to see where Firestorm fits into the picture, as there was a lot of chatter about it before Battlefield 5’s launch. However in the interim Apex Legends has muscled in and taken the world by storm. Can Firestorm find a regular audience, or is everyone already locked into their battle royale of choice?

If it has the letters RPG in it, I am there. Still battling with balancing trying to play every single game that grabs my interest, getting 100% in a JRPG, and devoting time to my second home in Azeroth.
