Battlefield 5 Official Multiplayer Trailer
Battlefield 5 will be returning with a lot of multiplayer modes such as Conquest, Team Deathmatch, and Domination. However, the big new mode is Grand Operations, which builds on the Operations mode from Battlefield 1. Here the action takes place over four in-game days, with each day representing a new phase in the fight. Another new feature that DICE will be implementing into this game is ‘scarcity’ which means that you’ll spawn with less ammo and explosives than in previous games.
This mode will prompt players to request support classes for resupplies, and loot ammo off enemies. The respawn screen has changed too – you can choose whether or not to bleed out, then you get a view of how your squad is playing, so you can make an informed decision about whether to squad spawn or go back to deployment.
