At the official unveiling of Battlefield 5 for the global audience today on may 23, EA revealed that there would be brand new “Companies” for the game, that players can create and fully customize while they’re playing the multiplayer side of the game.
You can customize absolutely everything in your online Company, including the individual soldiers, the weapons, and the vehicles including tanks and planes. EA wants this Company to function as your base of operations throughout Battlefield 5, and there will be plenty of opportunities to earn and unlock new gear for your Company.
For example, EA plans on introducing DLC “Chapters” for Battlefield 5, which introduce new content for all players, free of charge. You’ll be able to earn elite cosmetic items for your company soldiers, weapons, and vehicles while playing limited time modes included in the Chapters. You can also unlock new items through playing the War Stories, which EA hasn’t revealed too much about right now.
These new items can include face paint and hairstyles for your soldiers, camouflage, stocks, and scopes for your weapons, and new paint jobs for your tanks. It’s your job to earn new cosmetic items for your Company, and there are between five and seven cosmetic parts to every single weapon in Battlefield 5, all of which can be customized.
You can also earn new bonuses for your Company by completing Daily Orders and Special Assignments. Battlefield 5 will give you the chance to undertake three new Daily Orders every 24 hours, all of which can usually be completed fairly quickly to unlock various rewards. As for the Special Assignments, these will usually take “multiple days” to complete, and can reward you with rarer cosmetic upgrades for your Company soldiers, weapons, and tanks.
This is all we know about the new customizable Companies in Battlefield 5, but we can safely assume EA will reveal new details about the new feature in the runup to the launch of the online shooter, on October 19.
