Community engagement manager at DICE, Dan Mitre, will be a guest on the Gamer Crossroads podcast on Sunday, September 17, discussing Battlefield V and answering questions from the community.

Battlefield V’s recent open beta had a mixed reception, and after the release date delay, which pushed the launch to November 20 from October 19, EA shares plummeted.

But Battlefield has a strong and loyal fanbase, which will be eagerly awaiting release, and despite the issues in the beta, there is still plenty to look forward to, both in multiplayer, campaign and of course the battle royale mode.

Battlefield fans will get a chance to put some of their questions directly to Mitre on Sunday, and there will undoubtedly be a lot of questions to be asked, particularly coming off the beta.

The beta was multiplayer only, and only featured two modes and two maps, which is a tiny segment of what is to come in the full release.

Plenty of guns, vehicles and equipment was available however, and weapon customization was even available in the beta, something DICE are putting extra emphasis on this year.

The Gamer Crossroads podcast will be live on Twitch on September 17, at 4pm EST (1am PT, 10pm BST), and we predict there will be a heavy focus on Battlefield V throughout, amongst other topics.

Because it will be streamed on Twitch, the podcast will likely take questions from the chat. You can watch live on Sunday from Gamer Crossroad’s Twitch Channel.

Battlefield V dropped back on November 20, 2018, marking the 11th installment in the popular first-person shooter franchise. With the new release, EA Dice took things up a notch with multiplayer compared to previous titles, adding a battle royale mode as well as expanding on the mega Grand Operations.

With it’s one year anniversary coming around, as well as the release of the game’s fifth chapter, EA launched their annual Battlefest celebrations with a raft of content for players. Included in that has been free trial weekends – letting everyone jump into different aspects of the game.

When is Battlefield V’s free trial weekend?

The free trial weekends run on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and EA Origin for the PC. So, all you have to do is fine Battlefield V in your respective marketplace and hit download on the free trial.

Once you’ve waited for the long download and dropped into a game, you will be able to keep any progress you make should you choose to purchase the full game after that point.

It’ll take some time to download, of course, but it’s better to act fast than wait until the last minute – especially when you can get in plenty more matches, too.
