From buildable fortifications to towing heavy artillery, the shape of battles look to change in a big way in Battlefield V. Here are some of the big gameplay changes coming to this year’s game.
Let’s get the big one out of the way first: fortifications. Gone are the days of not being able to camp out in buildings that have been destroyed, or sitting on a flag in conquest with a ‘hope for the best’ attitude. You’ll now be able to craft a range of different fortifications — like sandbags, trenches, and fox holes — in the midst of battle, giving you a better angle for potential tactical play. Further, destroyed buildings will now be able to be rebuilt to a degree, meaning you’ll be able to set up camps across the place without too much of an issue.
This should add a fascinating dynamic to the traditional Battlefield experience, with players now given the ability to set up specific firing lines across the game’s maps. Combine this with another new addition, that being the towing mechanic, and we’ve got quite a different kind of game on our hands.
