Basic Training Mode

Battlefield 5 leak

Despite releasing in November, it appears that there will be a new Basic Training mode heading to Battlefield 5 to serve as a walkthrough for new players. The training will be in the form of a mission and will explain how to play Conquest. It will also cover various details like classes, objectives, weak spots, and other gameplay mechanics. It seems this feature is heading to the game a bit late, but for anyone who hasn’t played the game yet, this should be a big help.

Firestorm Map Expansion

Battlefield 5 leak

Based on the X and Y coordinates of the Firestorm map, Temporyal believes that the map will be expanded as the battle royale mode continues to evolve. Essentially, he thinks that the map was originally twice as big as it currently is and that DICE will use that to expand the map in the future, adding in new locations. However, it is worth noting that this could just be scrapped development parts of the map that DICE never bothered to clean up.

It was just recently announced that duos would be permanently returning to Battlefield 5. So, it will be interesting to see if they decide to expand the map any, or leave it how it is.
