Battlefield V‘s schedule was already confusing enough, and now publisher EA has made it a little bit more confusing—in a good way.
Battlefield V has gone live a little early for Origin and EA Access players on PC and Xbox One respectively.
ResetEra users are reporting the game is already playable on both platforms, and Twitch is hosting a ton of Battlefield V streams as of the time we’re writing this. Origin and EA Access members have access to a 10-hour trial of the game and are required to purchase the game if they want to play further, while Origin Access Premier subscribers have full access to the game for as long as they’re subscribed to the service.
If you don’t have an Origin or EA Access membership, the earliest you’ll be able to play Battlefield V is November 15th, but that requires preordering the deluxe edition of the game. Everyone else can jump in on November 20th, when the game officially launches for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC.
You don’t have to wait that long to check out new Battlefield V gameplay. EA GameChangers, a promotional program that the publisher has with several prominent Battlefield YouTubers, have started posting new videos of gameplay on maps and with weapons that were not available during the closed alpha or open beta test programs. JackFrags, for instance, has a solid 25 minutes of new gameplay to enjoy:
As a reminder, Battlefield V will feature eight multiplayer maps at launch, with another multiplayer map coming in the month following the game’s launch through its Tides of War live service program. On those eight maps, five standard game modes will be available, as well as Grand Operations, an extended battle over the course of three to four game modes with some exclusive game modes and variations. One mode that won’t be available is the game’s battle royale mode, Firestorm, which is launching in March 2019.
