EA has given players tiny glimpses of Firestorm; Battlefield V’s battle royale mode, over the past weeks. This latest trailer, however, properly introduces Battlefield’s take on the insanely popular; Battle Royale genre. From what’s on display within the trailer, it seems that Firestorm will implement all of the key elements of the Battle Royale genre while mixing Battlefield V’s unique brand of large scale warfare. Like the base game, Firestorm seems to focus on destructibility as one squad of players is seen calling in an airstrike that obliterates an enemy house. Vehicles seem like another focus as the characters were seen riding a tractor with a mounted gun.
