Battlefield New Game Coming With A No-Cost Battle Royale Mode

A fresh report hints that the upcoming Battlefield game could be moving closer to the much-loved Battle Royale type by offering a mode you can play for free. This follows the series earlier try with the genre in Battlefield 5's Firestorm, which got varied reactions because it needed you to have the main game.


A New Try in the Battle Royale

Though it’s still up in the air, Insider Gaming’s report says the next Battlefield game might have a Battle Royale mode that you don’t have to pay for. It’s being made by Ripple Effect, which used to be called DICE LA. They’re trying to do better than Firestorm by letting more people play without needing to buy the game. The report also hints that this mode could be set between 2025 and 2030, which seems to fit with whispers about the main game’s modern warfare setting.


Release Date and Industry Landscape

The report talks about planning to launch something by October 2024, but it might get pushed to 2025. This makes people wonder: is it too late for Battlefield to join the Battle Royale trend? Big games like Apex Legends and Call of Duty: Warzone are already very popular, making it hard to get lots of players. But, having a game that’s free to play might help get new players and grow the game’s community, especially in places where people usually don’t buy games to play.


Uncertain Future for the Franchise

The news is about the Battlefield series. Ridgeline Games, helping make new games in the series, recently had a co-founder leave. This might change how the studio works a bit. But it probably won’t change the work on a Battle Royale mode by Ripple Effect.


Beyond the Battle Royale

The report gives us interesting points about a possible Battle Royale feature. Everyone who loves games is waiting to hear more from Electronic Arts (EA) about what’s next for Battlefield. People are curious about how this free mode will fit with the main game, how it will affect how money is made, and what EA is thinking about for the future of Battlefield. We’ll have to wait and see if this new idea gives Battlefield a fresh start or if it runs into old problems like Firestorm did. Also, experts who watch the gaming industry will keep an eye on how this Battle Royale feature does. Its success or failure might show a big change in how Battlefield works to meet what gamers want and keep up with new trends in games.
