I got the opportunity to play against tons of other media outlets, YouTubers, streamers you name it at Gamescom in the next Battlefield game. We did of course had the option to record the gameplay, as I did, but sadly my recording was corrupted so I’m adding jackfrags video with his impressions at the bottom of this article.
First of all, the hour and half I got to play didn’t exactly feel like an hour and half. It felt like I just started up the game, when I was told that my playthrough was over. We got to test the all new “Rotterdam” map in Conquest mode with 800 tickets. Before I continue with my hands on impression, here is a small disclaimer or “intel” of what type of platform and specs I played on:
We played on a PC with:
- CPU – Intel Core i7 8700K
- GPU – NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 Ti
- RAM – 16GB DDR4 Crucial Sport LT
- Mainboard – ROG Strix Z370-F Gaming
- ROG Swift PG27VQ Gaming Monitor (2560×1440 16:9 aspect ratio, WQHD, 165Hz, 1ms, G-SNYC
- Logitech G Pro mouse, Logitech G512 keyboard
Even though Battlefield V might seem like a reskin of Battlefield 1, it sure performed incredible well. Sure I did die a lot, but the experience in a whole was incredible. The new map “Rotterdam” is perfectly designed, and in the conquest mode, each capture point were designed like a “dice”, two points on each side of the river and one in the middle. Each capture point had their own feel and strategic points as well.
I tried all of the different classes such as Medic, Assault, Sniper and Support. But most of the time, I’ve played as Medic and Assault. As I like the mobility the Medic class has, with their SMG providing fast medical support. And dying in Battlefield feels more brutal this time, as each time you die and is available to be revived by teammates. You’re laying their screaming at you buddies, reaching out your hand to get that last hope of survival. I will let the video down below showcase more of what I experienced, as the core gameplay itself is simple enough. You never know what happens in Battlefield. In my opinion, this might be one of the best Battlefield titles, that will be available soon.
Battlefield V is postponed to November 2018, but it will release on the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.
