A new Battlefield V trailer finally elaborates on one of the shooter’s most novel and complex systems: The Company.
Built from either the British or German faction, a player’s Company is the personalized collection of their available soldiers, weapons, and vehicles that they will bring into each fight. Starting with the soldiers, Battlefield’s four classic soldier classes will evolve in Battlefield V through the introduction of combat roles. Combat roles allow classes to specialize in distinctive playstyles, such as the Recon choosing between long-range shooting or stealth. Combat roles boast unique loadouts and abilities, with new roles opening up over time.
The weapons and vehicles that make up a player’s Company will be individually upgradable along different paths as the player progresses with them. New equipment can be unlocked through daily assignments. While many upgrades to weapons, gear, and vehicles boast a more practical use, some upgrades are just for the sake of the aesthetic.
Visual personalization is available for players’ soldiers, weapons, and vehicles. Companies can be personalized with unique looks designed by the player, or with preset designs that highlight specific achievements that player performed in the game. Unfortunately, vehicle customization will not be in the game at launch.
A trailer highlighting The Company in Battlefield V can be checked out below.
Battlefield V is slated to launch October 19th on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. Early access unlocks on October 11th for those that are subscribed to EA/Origin Access, and October 16th for those that pick up the Deluxe Edition.
