DICE has announced that Firestorm, Battlefield V's dedicated battle royale offering, is getting a new Duo Mode.
The mode does exactly what it says on the tin, allowing you to team up with another player to tackle the battle royale experience. It joins the Solo and Squad modes that are currently available in Firestorm, and will be available until April 15.
'It's our first time putting Duo out into the wild having started work on the mode much later in Firestorms development. We love it, and we think it's a great addition to the game, but we recognize best that we're better hearing that from you, and we'd appreciate your support in helping to make it a strong addition to Firestorm, and Battlefield V,' said DICE.
Battlefield V was released on PlayStation 4, PC, and Xbox One in November 2018, with Firestorm arriving as part of an extensive post-launch slate last month. Battlefield Currency was rolled out for the World War II shooter just a week ago.
Battlefield V developer DICE has released a new update for the game's battle royale mode, Firestorm.
Among the changes include a buff to the Armor Plate limit, which has been increased to five. Player health has been increased from 200 to 300 when in a downed state, and Firestorm now offers more XP-giving opportunities, as DICE felt it was a bit lacking in comparison to other modes.
Meanwhile, vehicle deaths have also been tweaked, so that the player's body is shoved outside of the vehicle, and it's now possible to be revived during Duo and Squads. It's not just Firestorm, though; this feature is now implemented across the entire Battlefield V experience.
There's a few other changes being made too, so be sure to give the full patch notes a look.
Battlefield V was released on PlayStation 4, PC, and Xbox One in November, although Firestorm didn't arrive until March. Still, the game is in much better shape now than it was at launch, with fresh content arriving throughout the year.
