When I believe “Battlefield,” I believe “giant participant counts.” I will recall popping Battlefield 1942 into my PC for the primary time and being in awe on the 64-player vehicular battles, a rarity on the time (in most cases it used to be one or the opposite). So after I listen 16 years later that EA and DICE are targeting 64 players for Battlefield V‘s battle royale mode, I am understandably upset.
Speaking to VG247, reside provider construction director Ryan MacArthur famous that once Firestorm (their take at the battle royale style)^( , that the “present goal is 64 players” — as a word battle royale video games/modes usually intention for 100. MacArthur says they at the beginning need it to “really feel like Battlefield,” which is an admirable sufficient purpose that DICE intends to make use of to permit it to break free from the pack, however will not be sufficient to in reality destroy thru.
After being pressed concerning the doable for upper participant counts one day VG247 used to be close down. That…may well be it for Firestorm’s higher vary, however EA intends to proportion extra data at the mode main into its March release. I am hoping so.
