Battlefield 5 Battle Royale Mode, Firestorm, Leaked in New Tutorial Video

The first look at Firestorm gameplay.

We've known about Battlefield 5's upcoming battle royale mode for a while now. Firestorm was announced around the launch of Battlefield 5, but EA said it wouldn't be ready until the spring. Now we know what Firestorm looks and plays like thanks to a leaked tutorial video for the upcoming battle royale mode.

When EA Dice revealed Firestorm with a cinematic trailer, we knew it would feature the staples of the battle royale genre with some Battlefield flourishes. That means last player standing gameplay with loot scavenging and a red zone, but also destructible environments and vehicles.

The leaked tutorial video for Firestorm seems to confirm all of these elements. Like other battle royale games, Firestorm will task players to droping into a map via parachute and scavenging for weapons classified by rarity and ammo type. Unique to Firestorm is what looks to be a loot safe mechanic which holds rare weapons and vehicles. There are several vehicles available including tanks, helicopters, and amphibious cars.

Piloting a vehicle looks to offer advantages like increased firepower and travel distance, but will also make you a bigger target to other players. But it might be worth it since judging by the look of the Firestorm tutorial, the map is huge.

The tutorial is leaked, and therefore not at all confirmed by EA. But it's in the style of Battlefield 5's other in-game tutorials, complete with the same sounding narrator as Battlefield 5's other videos.

We still don't have a release date for Firestorm, but earlier today Battlefield 5 players received a daily order to participate in FireStorm. Either Firestorm came out without anyone even realizing, or it's in the pipeline and someone at EA Dice accidentally sent out the order too early. Either way we expect to hear more about Firestorm soon.
