Battlefield 5

A representative for Electronic Arts has confirmed to Polygon that Battlefield 5 will have two currencies at launch. The first is the usual “grind currency” which can be earned in-game. The second is a premium currency that can be purchased with real money.

DICE’s Battlefield 5 won’t have a Premium Pass, meaning that all future maps and modes will be free to players. While microtransactions are a given in this case, it was then confirmed that there would be no loot boxes. Instead, cosmetics can purchased with real money but it would also be possible to unlock those cosmetics with in-game currency.

It’s possible that certain cosmetic types (like emotes, colour schemes, etc) will be acquired through the in-game currency. Meanwhile, more elaborate skins and cosmetics can be bought with premium currency, with can still be acquired through regular play but at a slower pace. Either way, neither option will have an impact on actual gameplay like Star Wars Battlefront 2’s system.

We’ll learn more about this in the coming weeks/months so stay tuned. Battlefield 5 is on October 19th for Xbox One, PS4 and PC.
