Welcome to the October 8th edition of ‘This Week in Battlefield V’!

Full disclosure: we previously stated in passing, at the water-cooler, or in DMs that we were going to focus on the Game Economy and Progression this week. Unfortunately, we’re still working on the blog and want to ensure we get the right details in there as to answer standing questions around our economy and progression system, but also to mitigate against opening up more questions that might be present from a half-polished article. That said… on to this week’s focus, Weapon Specialization & Customization and Vehicle Specialization!

As always, timing on these items can always shift, but we want to give you a glimpse into what we have planned so you can tune in as each beat goes live.

UPDATE: New Blog Added: Wednesday, October 10th - The Importance of Bullet Penetration in Battlefield V - We added a new blog that focuses on how the bullet penetration system affects gameplay. We sat down with Sr. Game Designer Rickard Antroia as he elaborated on:

  • What bullet penetration is
  • How we approach the concept

  • How different weapons and bullet types penetration materials in different ways
  • How the bullet penetration has changed after Open Beta

Update #2: Blog topics adjusted and Reddit AMAA hosts shift.
  • Blogs - Both of the 'How to Specialize Battlefield V Weapons' and 'How to Specialize Battlefield V Vehicles' blogs will focus on just that, specialization and what you can expect at launch. Unfortunately, we've had to remove elements of visual customization as we aren't ready to discuss those yet, but will dig into that prior to launch.
  • Reddit AMAA - We've got some revolving availability within the Dev team, so we're currently locking down who will join us on Friday's Reddit AMAA as we discuss Weapon and Vehicle Specialization, Bullet Penetration, and Gunplay.

    If the uniform unlocks for bfv look good i might have to re-download bf1 and play just long enough to get'em. Will we be getting a sneak peek at vehicle customization at some point even though it will be a post launch feature? Even just more concept art would be cool!

    Yes! Once we're ready to show it we'll give you a glimpse. I can't guarantee that it'll be before launch though.

    Tides of War is the Battlefield V live service that adds more weapons, vehicles, gear, factions, maps, etc. through our multi-year journey. The first chapter will be detailed in an upcoming week.

    Will there be multiple types of foliage that can be added to the weapons? As a sweaty faced recon player this type of camouflage gets me all hot and bothered lol.

    Sounds like you guys might need some sleep, or coffee, or maybe some of that white powdery stuff lol. 😆

    Brother... when in the crunch leading up to launch, we live off of no sleep, tons of coffee, and mountains of white powdered stuff.

    Wish we could get into customization now, but we'll have to wait a few more weeks. Sorry!

    Some people don't use Reddit, bro. Some people like to stick to forums to get their information. Going to where our community likes to digest news.

    It really suprises me that a tripple A game like battlefield has so few people being active on the forums and on reddit, i mean only 275 posts as of now on todays AMAA. Feels like a small community for such a big game. That being said, the dice team is doing a great job lately answering all the questions!

    Is that white powder what I think it is?
    Good luck on the final crunch though, it sounds terrifying.
