What Can You Do In The Battlefield V Open Beta?

This is where it gets fun as the traditional Battlefield we know and love is still there, but there are some major tweaks that will be in the full game, but briefly teased in the open beta. There's the expected 64-player mayhem that Conquest mode will deliver with the exciting new Rotterdam map which is set in Holland, or the Arctic Fjord map that is set in Narvik, Norway.

DICE changes the game up completely with their new Fortifications feature, towable weapons, and the Squad Reinforcements system. The fortifications feature I think will be a game changer, where you can strengthen buildings and provide protection for your fellow players. You can restore cover by using the fortifications feature that lets you throw sandbags down for protection, but your tool kit could include barbed wire that make it harder for the enemy to flank you. If cover is totally destroyed, you can restore it which is a big change to Battlefield.

DICE knows how to tease us with Battlefield V, as the Grand Operation Fall of Norway is set to be epic. The developer explains: "In Fall of Norway, Day 1 will be spent in the Airborne mode, where you'll paradrop down to the battlefield and be on either side of a fight where explosives are deployed on control points. Day 2 features Breakthrough, where your team either attacks or defends vital sectors. In this mode, stay aggressive and tactical as an attacker - or use on-the-fly planning to keep the enemy at bay when defending".

"Then there's new scenery to explore: Rotterdam. You'll fight in the streets of the Dutch city in its pristine, pre-war state before battles left it in devastation. Deploy on this map and try the signature Battlefield game mode: Conquest. Returning to classic rules, Conquest is a 64-player fight where two teams fight for control over key flags on the map. Hold the majority of these points to drain the opposition's score and win the day".
