Battlefield 5 Battle Royale: Everything We Know So Far

Does it stand a chance against Call of Duty: Blackout?

EA

With Fortnite and PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds vying for top spot in the gaming world over the last couple of years, it seemed only a matter of time before other developers and franchises got in on the action. So when Lars Gustavsson of EA DICE revealed that the Battle Royale game mode would be getting the Battlefield treatment at the company's EA Play event at E3, it came as exciting, if not entirely unexpected news.

Battle Royale is the hottest thing in gaming right now, with PUBG amassing an incredible total of over 400 million players since launch, while Fortnite has seen an astonishingly speedy surge in popularity, gaining over 125 million players in its first year and becoming a genuine gaming phenomenon, with celebrities and sport stars joining in on the fun and playing the game in their downtime.

The Fortnite dances and "“Winner Winner Chicken Dinner” phrase from PUBG have become part of popular culture, and this new style of game has quickly become one of the world's favourite ways to play, but can Battlefield V's effort have the same sort of impact?
