You'd be hard-pressed to search online for gaming topics and not come across battle royale. It has taken over the gaming industry.\u00a0<em>Fortnight<\/em>, <em>PUBG<\/em>, and most recently <em>Apex Legends<\/em> have been staples for this genre.\r\n\r\nTheir concepts are simple: battle it out against other players until only one remains. Such a simple recipe seems to be spreading like wildfire. Companies have made millions off of this mode, and it seems like the profits don\u2019t seem to be stopping any time soon.\r\n\r\nNow, it appears <em>Battlefield V<\/em> is entering the fold. EA recently released some trailers of their upcoming battle royale mode, Firestorm. Although the trailer doesn\u2019t show actual game footage, we do learn some important details.\r\n\r\nThere will be different modes available, including solo, duos, and squads. It\u2019s nice to see <em>Battlefield <\/em>give gamers some added variety. The solo made has been instrumental for many battle royale games. However, there\u2019s something so fun about going toe-to-toe with another friend.\r\n\r\nLike most other battle royale titles on the market today, players will parachute in from planes. Once they land, they\u2019ll search frantically for weapons and other survival items. <em>Battlefield <\/em>really has the chance to stand out in terms of their weapon variety and stellar graphics. This mode is currently being developed by Criterion and will go live March 25.\r\n\r\nEven though there hasn\u2019t been any game footage showing exactly what Firestorm will offer, there\u2019s a lot to get excited about. The <em>Battlefield<\/em> games have always had amazing graphics and an addictive shooting system. One has to assume that these strongpoints will show up in this new mode.\r\n\r\nHopefully, they can include some amazing weapons. This seems to be a huge aspect that determines whether these types of games will do well or not. Criterion could put a lot of emphasis on weaponry and really help Firestorm become an instant classic.\r\n\r\nAs far as the number of players this new mode will support, there have been reports of 64 being the magic number. That\u2019s quite a lot of users battling it out until one remains. This should make for some intense combat and supreme gratification by being the last man standing.\r\n\r\nWe\u2019re just a couple of weeks out, but it\u2019s exciting to see what potential this latest mode could do to the <em>Battlefield<\/em> franchise going forward. Their fifth installment wasn\u2019t received that great given its lack of story, and this new mode could be just what the series needs to restore good faith with its fanbase. Criterion has all of the resources to make Firestorm a hit right out of the gate.
