Battlefield V is on EA Play
For all of you at home on the edge of your seats wondering where last weeks’ reviews are, blame EA Play at Battlefield V. How am I supposed to review anything if EA is going to give me a hundred “free” video games at once!?
Game Pass Ultimate Members, by way of EA Play, just got Star Wars Fallen Order, The Sims 4, A Way Out, Battlefield, Battlefront, Madden, and Mirror’s Edge to name a few, and all I’ve been able to do for almost two weeks is, go to work, come home, then play more EA games.
My personal recommendation is to get yourself a squad and jump into Battlefield V, which is technically Battlefield XIII or something… Battlefield V is a continued improvement on the Battlefield Series, featuring planes, tanks, half-tracks, and a variety of other gas powered war vehicles, each with their own massive skill tree related to your level with that vehicle.
Buildings are back to being mostly destructible like the Battlefield Bad Company series and each character class is stacked to the teeth with upgradeable weapons and a handful of grenades or gadgets. Battlefield V has a crapload of maps from frozen stretches along the Bering Sea to the Swiss Alps and a little taste of Desert, not dessert. Battlefield V is set in World War 2 with both European and Pacific Front maps, mostly an equal split.
The weapons are intentionally terrible because they’re what, like a hundred years old at this point? You’ll get cross-mapped by a tank blast, your terrible teammates will snipe from the base for twenty-five minutes and put up four kills or less, and enemy planes will shoot you down so fast you’ll never click to spawn in a plane again.
All gripes aside, I truly love Battlefield V and I recommend Xbox owners worldwide subscribe to Game Pass Ultimate, now featuring EA Play.
