Following its reveal, one of the things that really stuck out to me about this year’s Battlefield is that it’s incentivising and pushing squad play more than it ever before.
This was echoed by one of DICE’s developers at the London reveal event, saying that the team “want squads to stay together in the game.” As such, the team have implemented a handful of ways into incentivising players to keep together and play as a team.
One of the more noticeable changes, in terms of gameplay, is that players will now drop into the battlefield with less ammo than prior games. You’ll be able to survive one or two gunfights, but will struggle to go much further than that. Of course, if you have a support class player with you, you’ll be able to stock up on ammo thanks to them. Similarly, enemies will now drop ammo upon death, too.
