DICE’s Battlefield 5 has been in closed alpha stage as players experience the game’s gunplay, fortifications and other new features. Though only two factions will be available at launch, with more to come via the Tides of War seasons, there will apparently be eight multiplayer modes to enjoy.
According to Reddit user turntrout101, the in-game home menu for Battlefield 1 has an article confirming that Conquest, Domination, Frontlines, Team Deathmatch and Breakthrough will be available at Battlefield 5’s launch. Three yet-to-be-revealed modes are included but these will apparently be “brand new” to the series. Also, it seems that modes like Final Stand and Airborne will exist within Grand Operations only.
Obviously, because it’s not an official announcement, there is some skepticism to be had. Wait for DICE to confirm the number of modes before getting your hopes or, alternatively, lamenting how only Conquest, Team Deathmatch and Operations will have players available down the line.
Battlefield 5 is out on October 16th for Xbox One, PS4 and PC.
