    I love how the decades old last man standing game mode is now called battle royal just because of games like PUBG and fortnite, it's not a bad game mode for those who like it, but lets not deny the fact it isn't anywhere near a new thing at all. The problem with this game mode is that when the game is new and nobody knows the maps and tactics etc. then the game plays brilliantly and quite realistic(I had some of the best gaming moments of all time in the early days of PUBG), once the that wears off it just becomes a camp fest and the game goes stale (PUBG is now uninstalled).

    BFV dare I say, looks a little dull on the multiplayer side. I would have preferred a new BF Vietnam. Not bothered about a Battle Royale mode either.. I think Battlefield is going to struggle this year with Red Dead Redemption 2 coming at roughly the same time.

    "With Battlefield 5 EA is doing away with paid DLCs and Season passes for upcoming extra content but will sell cosmetic items in game"

    Very similar to free-for-all modes of days gone by. I agree, it isn't anything new, just a variation of the mode.

    It will be fine - with RDR2 not coming out on PC I doubt it will impact sales too much - BF has always been a PC game really (it's terrible on consoles). I am looking forward to BF5 and I am curious about it's BR mode - it would be good if there was finally an alternative to PUBG on the PC (Fortnite really doesn't count given it's limited to TPP, which ruins the experience). I just hope they don't mess with the basic formula too much - the fact everyone is on the same footing at the start and the impact of loot RNG is really important for a BR game, so I guess we'll have to hope they have learnt from what PUBG has done. Cosmetics are fine we just don't want any paid boosts!

    On a side note I did play in the COD PC open beta last weekend and I was pleasantly surprised - it was actually fun to play for a few hours, so I might pick that up in 12-18 months time when the price drops to a reasonable level. It was fun but not worth £50 without a single player campaign...if there is still a sensible playerbase that isn't overun by hackers in a year, it will be worth picking up for £15-£20.
