Battlefield 5 to Introduce Airborne Mode, Individual Progression Trees

Share.
Battlefield V teases a brand new game mode and individual progression trees for every class.

New details about Battlefield V have emerged since its official reveal earlier this month.

Battlefield V will feature a new multiplayer game mode called Airborne, where players parachute onto the map and destroy or defend artillery on the ground, all while explosive dogfights presumably take place in the air above.

The new mode was introduced with very few details on the Battlefield franchise's official Twitter account. The tweet stated: "Say hello to Airborne: a new Battlefield V mode where you'll parachute into the battlefield and work with your squad to destroy enemy artillery, or defend them and make sure the threat from above is dealt with." It included the image below.

Initial rumors about a Battlefield V battle royale mode turned out to be mostly false, so the airdropping element here (popular in battle royale games like PUBG and Fortnite) shouldn't be misinterpreted.

Instead of a pure battle royale mode, Battlefield V will add an additional stage to the multi-round Grand Operations mode (Battlefield V's version of Operations from Battlefield 1) called Last Stand, which is a last soldier standing, sudden death round to determine the winner of particularly tight matches.

Another tweet from the official Battlefield account mentions individual progression trees for each Battlefield player class and "specialized Archetypes."
