Battlefield 5’s Firestorm trailer has leaked, and it has a gyrocopter

Battlefield 5’s Firestorm trailer has leaked, and it has a gyrocopter

Despite the early leak, the video itself gives a good amount of new details for what to expect from Battlefield 5's battle royale mode ahead of release.

If you're a Battlefield vet, you'll no doubt recognize the Father of Battlefield Lars Gustavsson's voice as the narrator, which adds further credibility to the leaked trailer.

A tutorial video for Battlefield 5's battle royale mode has made its way online after apparently being featured in a new "Daily Order" that appears to have signified that the mode might be on the horizon very soon for release. It's got an uphill climb, but there's a lot of Battlefield fans that should be willing to give it a go.

Looking at the above video carefully, there does seem to be some glaring differences that will hopefully make Firestorm stand on its own.

A leaked in-game tutorial video has given us our first look at the Battlefield V take on the ludicrously popular battle royale genre.

Battlefield 5 sold more than 7 million copies, but overall it failed to meet EA's commercial expectations. Players must then find weapons and other items on the map and use them to be the last player standing. Instead, weapons are divided into three classes-Common, Rare, and Epic. After players drop onto the map, they'll be able to crack safes and complete objectives that will reward them with reinforcements, loot, and rare vehicles.

Assuming the video is legit, one of the cool things that will be a part of Battlefield V's battle royal mode is the ability to fire a sidearm like a pistol when you are knocked down.

You'll have weapons of varying rarity and effectiveness, and have to manage your inventory to ensure you don't run out of the right ammo type for your specific gun.
