Battlefield Game is the most recent installment in the popular series of war-themed video games. Unlike previous installments, which had some semblance of a story, this one is more action-packed. This is further exacerbated by the fact that the game is being developed by EA. So you’d expect the game to be more intense and full of thrills. And it’s not just the action part – the gameplay is also as gripping as ever.
Battlefield Game is a break from past military shooter dogma. For the first time, you are allowed to venture into the single-player campaign, free of the usual overwatch and attack modes. Instead of the usual ‘one vs. all’ scenario, you’re put in the boots of a soldier who goes into battle head-to-head with the enemies. The campaign puts you into the shoes of many different characters, all of whom have special weapons, abilities, and statistics that will help you fight the odds and win the game. In short, you are playing each character in each mode as you struggle through the campaign.
There are two game modes in Battlefield Game: Team Deathmatch and Land Battle. Team Deathmatch sees you pitted against the opposing team in a race to complete objectives on the battlefield and earn points. On the other hand, Land Battle sees you defending your point against waves of enemy soldiers. These waves come courtesy of destructible buildings, which can be destroyed or damaged depending on the nature of the mission. The objective may also be to capture an Airfield or a zone of the map. Your objective may vary, but each mode is highly enjoyable regardless.
When you’re into the game, there are three possible classes you can choose from Recon, Ground Control, and Support. Each class has its own specialties, abilities, and weapons that will help them in either offense or defense. Recon is primarily used as a tank player; using barriers to protect yourself, or sniping from a long-range distance to take down opponents. As a Recon soldier, you have the ability to remain hidden from your enemies long enough to get in range to shoot at them from a safe distance. The terrain in the game can be used to your advantage. Hills, trees, and mountains can be used to create barriers and hideouts, while also providing cover for your teammates.
Since the game is multiplayer, you and your friends can play against each other in head-to-head competitions. You can choose to play on offense or defense, though the game will let you switch between the two if you find yourself behind the majority of the competition. There is a ranking system involved as well, where your overall score is based upon the total number of kills you have made as well as the number of deaths you have sustained. This helps give each player a sense of challenge and achievement as well as motivating you to play for longer periods of time.
When playing on offense, the objective is to capture the most points for your team. There are several objectives spread across the map that can be taken by your team while on offense, and these include capturing control points, pods, and elevators that will allow you to gain access to the center of the map. However, these points are often tough to get to, and there may even be some areas that are filled with enemy soldiers that cannot be killed. If you want to win, you must work your way through these difficulties using only the resources that are available to you. On the other hand, if you are playing on defense, the objective is to prevent the other team from getting any of the capture points you have established, which requires careful planning, teamwork, and being on your feet.
As you can see, the gameplay in Battlefield V is much more varied than the typical shooter games. Each mission offers a unique challenge that requires a different kind of approach, and the maps are designed to test your ability to think quickly and make wise decisions about your actions. The maps are extremely detailed and offer many opportunities for players to become involved in the fight from a strategic point of view. Whether you are looking for a challenging map with plenty of action or one that helps you think out of the box, you will be able to find an enjoyable experience with this multiplayer first-person shooter.
In addition to the single-player versus multiplayer focus in the single-player campaign, DICE has created several single-player experiences that are equally exciting and well-designed as the multiplayer offerings. For example, Battlefield Vietnam is a completely standalone game that follows the events of the Vietnam War, using the same settings and technologies as the popular video games of today. Likewise, the award-winning Counter-Strike: Global Offensive also is a standalone single-player offering that imitates the quality of military CounterStrike games offered today. These games offer up the chance for you to experience the thrill of military CounterStrike with the full scope of a modern multiplayer environment, delivering fresh gameplay, dramatic moments, and the opportunity to sharpen your competitive skills with a challenging single-player campaign.
