The move to add a Battle Royale mode to the beloved "Battlefield" franchise was divisive among fans when EA announced it on Saturday afternoon at its annual "EA Play" event in Los Angeles.

This is new territory for the Battlefield series, which has traditionally done team-based multiplayer where there is no lack of resources for players.

Battlefield V was a major focus of Electronic Arts' EA Play press conference for E3 2018, and a new trailer revealed previously unknown details about the game's Drop mode.

It was reiterated that Battlefield V will not include a premium pass program that the previous installments offered, and its release date is set for October 19, 2018. We do know that developers are promising to bring us an "experience that we haven't had before", but we've heard that before.

It was DICE's Oskar Gabrielson and Lars Gustavsson who made the announcement along with a brand new trailer for the game.

EA's preview of Battlefield V also stressed a faster and more active multiplayer.

The Call of Duty Black Ops 4 Battle Royale mode is called Blackout and will take place on a huge map that is 1,500 times bigger than the Nuketown map.
