• Battlefield V Closed Alpha Begins Tonight

    In about four hours from the time of this post, the closed alpha for Battlefield V will begin. The Battlefield website provides all of the details that players may want to know, including the system requirements, what maps are included, and more.

    Invites for the alpha went out earlier today. Apparently, those who signed up for the Battlefield Insider newsletter however long ago had a chance to be invited. There are also some Twitter accounts that are currently giving away some keys for the alpha. Good luck with those.

    I also hear that some streamers and YouTube personalities may have some keys to give out during the course of the alpha.

    Here is a look at the content included with this alpha.

    What Modes and Maps will the Closed Alpha Contain?
    If you get invited, you can tackle Conquest mode or the Grand Operation Fall of Norway. Taking place on the map Arctic Fjord, Fall of Norway lets you experience two of its in-game “days” and play two of the modes that the Grand Operation strings together: Airborne and Breakthrough.

    Playing Airborne, you’ll either paradrop down to the battlefield to deal with enemy artillery, or fight to counter this attack if you’re on the other team. In the frantic fights of Breakthrough, you must capture sectors as an attacker or keep the opposition at bay through on-the-fly planning.

    As for Conquest – this is the timeless Battlefield classic where two teams use infantry and vehicular combat to seize a majority control of key control points.

    The alpha also has some system requirements to share.
    Minimum requirements:
    Operating System: 64-bit Windows 7, Windows 8.1 or Windows 10
    Processor (AMD): AMD FX-8350

      It was pretty good. It was very stable and responsive and didn't crash. There were some things that I didn't like, but those were some mechanics and visuals and were some of the things others were talking about as well, so hopefully they will get fixed.

      If DICE keeps the TTK and setup the way it is then it's going to be one of the most team oriented and "tactical" Battlefield since BF2/142.
