The official Battlefield V The Company trailer has been released by DICE, as well as new details on the bundle. For the first time ever in Battlefield, assemble a customized collection of soldiers, weapons, and vehicles, and take them on a journey through World War 2. Select specialized combat roles for each soldier in your Company, then get the gear to match. Upgrade your vehicles and aircraft — from durability to firepower, the choice is always yours. Check out the trailer now in the player below!
As players journey through World War 2 in the game and continue it through Tides of War, it all starts with your Company. A player’s Company is their own personal collection of soldiers, tanks, vehicles, and weapons where they can pick which ones they want to bring into battle, customize them to fit their play style and grow them over time. The more they play, the more they’ll progress, and the more rewards they can earn to outfit their Company.
With nearly every minute spent on the battlefield, you will earn new abilities and customization options that help calibrate your ability to maneuver, exploit, and turn the ever-changing battlefield in your favor. Each choice you make will impact your overall effectiveness on the front, and nearly every gameplay experience will demand a deeper level of strategy from your Company.
There will be two multiplayer factions at launch — the British and German armies — that you can build your Company from. You’ll be able to create one personalized Company per faction, each containing a set of soldiers and vehicles to tinker with. Although armies fight for the same goal, each unit stands on their own.
Your Battlefield V accolades and achievements are forever etched in your Company. From each Chapter in Tides of War to every multiplayer mode, your time spent playing Battlefield V contributes to the growth of your Company. Soldiers, weapons, and vehicles can be unlocked and then advanced through deep feature customization, thanks to the five progression ranks: Career, Class, Weapon, Vehicle, and Chapter.
The Company is designed with teamwork at the forefront. Because no one soldier can do it alone, more depth has been introduced to the iconic classes of Recon, Support, Assault, and Medic with the introduction of Combat Roles, previously known as “Archetypes.”
The iconic classes of Recon, Support, Assault, and Medic return — each excelling at different battlefield conditions than the other, according to their distinct abilities and loadout. You can switch between classes during matches, so you’ll always have the best tools and skills for the fight. Weapons and gadgets are set per Class.
Combat Roles for each class offer a deeper level of customization, which lets you better adapt to the battlefield situation. Think of them as a type of swap-able package of benefits that gives you more flexibility to tackle a specific objective.
Your class and Combat Role can then be further refined by equipment loadouts, tuned to best suit your upcoming fight. You can also design the look of your soldiers through cosmetic changes, by applying distinct faces, diverse outfits, and war paint. Building your own soldiers, customizing their weapons, and selecting their visual design gives you a more personal and tactical experience.
The more you play Battlefield V, the more abilities and customization options you’ll unlock. Tides of War brings new items to your Company, inspired from the locations you’ve deployed to on your journey. With these personalized loadouts, you can easily switch styles during matches and be prepared for any encounter.
Each soldier in your Company will start with a base loadout of weapons, which varies by class. More weapons can be earned or unlocked using in-game currency. The more you use your weapon in battle, the more you open additional customization options such as receivers, stocks, barrels, muzzles, and others.
Your one personalized Company per faction contains one tank and one aircraft at the start. Like weapons, vehicles can be earned through gameplay or unlocked using in-game currency and are upgraded according to how often they are unleashed in battle. Vehicle visual customization will be available after launch, so start planning to customize your tanks with paint jobs, sandbags, leaf camos, and more to really stand out.
