Battlefield 5 will be launching worldwide on October 19, 2018, for all global audiences that purchase the standard edition of the game, but it’ll release over a week beforehand if you’re an EA Access or Origin Access subscriber.
EA today unveiled Battlefield 5 for the first time, revealing a World War Two setting for the first-person shooter. We all but knew the shooter was set to release near the end of 2018, filling in the gap left by Star Wars Battlefront from last year’s release, but now we have a firm date. If you're wondering, Rockstar's Red Dead Redemption 2 releases on October 26, and Activision's CoD Black Ops 4 arrives on October 12.
As of right now, the locations EA has confirmed for Battlefield 5 include France, Norway, Rotterdam, and North Africa. We'll have to wait until EA's E3 2018 event to see if more locations are revealed for the game.
However this is merely the final release date for the standard edition of Battlefield 5, as EA revealed that those who purchase the Deluxe Edition of the game will be able to play three days earlier, from October 16.
But those who are subscribed to EA Access or Origin Access will be able to play Battlefield 5 eight days earlier, on October 11 - the amount of content available during this trial is yet to be announced. We don’t yet know the final retail price of the Deluxe Edition of Battlefield 5, which we assume EA will announce closer to the final release of the game.
