Electronic Arts revealed that Battlefield V will have a battle royale mode during its press conference at E3 on Saturday, an announcement that comes just weeks after Activision revealed Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 will be doing the same.
He added that there is "lots of good energy" at DICE related to the new battle royale mode.

DICE's Oskar Gabrielson and Lars Gustavsson unveiled the news and revealed that Battlefield Battle Royale will feature destructible environments. We also got a tease for it's upcoming Battle Royale mode as well. Oversaturation of the market isn't good for anyone, and it looks like that's where we might be headed, going forward.More news: NATO Agrees To 'Four 30s' Plan To Counter Russia
