In the world of video games, live services are one of the most common and often hated types of systems. And Battlefield V might be one of those games who have that kind of feature. For those new to the term, a live service according to one Reddit user is “a game designed with the sole purpose of keeping people playing for as long as possible in the hopes that those players will pay for microtransactions.” With that said, what if you already paid for all the future “live services” promised until a specific date and then suddenly the developers stopped delivering. That would be quite disappointing, right? Especially if you are expecting more content in the future.
Battlefield V News Updates
Well, if you own Battlefield V, then prepare to be blown away or disappointed this June. EA will stop the game’s live service after the delivery of the next update. Just in case you are curious about the upcoming content, below is a list straight from EA.
- New Content: A further update will be sent out this summer.
- Weekly Rewards: Following the summer update, you’ll receive Battlefield Currency or Company Coin as Weekly Rewards. This thing will give you a chance to unlock gear you may have missed.
- Events and Activities: We’re also planning various weekly initiatives such as the reintroduction of #FridayNightBattlefield servers, where the community can play Battlefield V in a friendly atmosphere. Throwback Thursdays, where we’ll look to bring you together across all of our Battlefield titles are in the works, too.
- Game Updates: We are continuing our work on Community Games Updates. We are committed to bringing these to the game, and we’ll keep you updated on when you can expect them to start coming online.
As the battles rage on for you and your squadmates, old and new, we’ll continue to pass out this thing with you for a long time. You’ve got to hold your head up high and believe that everything will turn out differently. Well, hopefully.
What does this mean for the game?
For new players, this means that they will know what to expect in terms of missions and other items featured on the game. However, this is the end of the line for veteran players who experienced the entirety of the game. In other words, EA will still provide updates for Battlefield V but maintenance purposes only. It is also possible that EA will introduce a new marketing model when the new update comes out. As unlikely as it may sound, the possibility is always there.
To be fair, it is also possible that EA will introduce a new marketing model when the new update comes out. As unlikely as it may sound, the possibility is always there. Battlefield V sold 7.3 million copies as of 2018. It is quite a bit low as compared to its predecessor Battlefield 1. Since its launch, Battlefield V has over 20 nominations, of which it only won the Game Critics Awards “Best Online Multiplayer.”
Nonetheless, it’s still up for you on whether you are going to continue the game or not. It might not only be you but a lot of players who keep their hopes high for this game. Moreover, this could be the end of the era, but of course, you never know if something greats await you in the end. Well, there’s still so much time before the release so you can think of pursuing the game or not.
