Battlefield V is going to launch October 19 for PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4.
There's an update to operations now and it is called "grand operations" that will be taking players on a tour across different game modes on multiple maps.
Besides the regular details Dice mentioned that they give much thought on how to handle the monetary involvement in the game and made a decision to avoid the lootbox fiasco that plagued the Star Wars Battlefront II.
The live stream is still ongoing and we're getting all sorts of details from the reveal. Despite it being well-documented that women played a key role in WWII (though mostly not on the front lines), this decision to have a female front-and-center of Battlefield 5 has drawn criticism from some.
Players are set to get access to a slew of new features and changes, including a Company of customizable characters, the ability to lie on one's back, additional game modes, support for destroying the environment, and more. The Fall of Europe will feature live gameplay events and thematic rewards.
Battlefield 5 made is grand debut today and, well, to be honest, it was kind of a disappointment.

Securities and Exchange Commission" by Disney and Fox in advance of their upcoming shareholder meetings slated for the summer. While Comcast noted that nothing is finalized in the press release, this follows reports of it displacing the Disney deal .
The game's livestream event included a hard confirmation from DICE senior producer Andreas Morell that no "pay-to-win" system will ever appear in BFV-meaning the game's players shouldn't expect to confront any Battlefront II-style currency system to access higher-level perks.
However, fans that order the Battlefield V Deluxe Edition will get access three days early on October 16, while EA Access and Origin Access members will be able to jump into the Play First Trial on October 11. Players' soldiers can now tow stationary weapons, build fortifications and fix war-torn structures to turn the battlefield to the player's advantage. In what ended up being the most exciting reveal for Battlefield 5, DICE announced there will be no premium pass. All of the game's major post-launch content - maps, modes, etc. - will be free for everybody in an effort to keep the community together.
Curiously, BFV doesn't seem to have a battle royale mode.
Overall, I have to admit I was a little disappointed in DICE's Battlefield 5 reveal.
Some other big news that was confirmed this week includes EA's plans for a Battlefield 5 beta. Those who pre-order will also get early access to the Battlefield V Open Beta, an extra Special Soldier Set, and access to five weapons as soon as they begin playing.
