Rumour Watch 2018: DICE Prototyping a Battle Royale Mode for Battlefield V

Call of Duty has always been best as a tighter, more twitch shooter.

It is unlikely that Battlefield's Battle Royale mode will bring innovation to the genre as rumors indicate the studio is investigating bringing a near identical copy to the game. With enough interesting gameplay tweaks, that could be a ideal fit for Activision's workhorse.

Is Battlefield 5 getting a Battle Royale mode? EA has provided a huge amount of support for its shooters in the form of regular expansions and downloadable content, and that is where a last-player-standing shooter makes the most sense. Whether other features, like parachuting into the area or picking up items like weapons and armor, are also included is unclear.

Darrell Wallace Jr., who also chose to make a stop under the caution, was penalized during the stops for speeding on pit road. Wallace was runner-up in a 2014 race and Byron's career-best run there was a fourth place in the 2016 truck race .

New Orleans led only 27-26 after one quarter but finished the second quarter with a 19-4 run to go up 61-43 at the break. Mirotic scored seven points during the spurt, all on layups set up by Rondo, including one as he was fouled by Gasol.

Shults then became one of the first female fighter pilots in the USA military, according to the alumni group at her alma mater. The death generated an outpouring of grief from Albuquerque business leaders, elected officials, poets, and activists.

Given that EA has neither named nor detailed "Battlefield V" at this point, and that development studio DICE "won't have [battle royale] ready in time for the initial release", there's plenty of space for speculation over its implementation of the trending format. Fortnite has been one of the most talked about games of 2018 and research companies say the game developer is making millions with its game on PC and consoles and its mobile version.

To the surprise of literally nobody, EA's DICE studio has been working on a battle royale mode. The reports add that this year's Call of Duty may be the first game in franchise to leave out campaign for a battle royale mode.

The battle royale prototype is described as similar in structure to both Fortnite Battle Royale and its predecessor, PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds. In case Black Ops 4 does come with a Battle Royale mode, it will be a small scale map with around 10 to 20 players on the map.
