As of now, the official unveiling of Battlefield V several days ago has been a contentious subject for many within the gaming community, which has been evidenced by the fact that its reveal trailer has more dislikes than likes on the title’s official YouTube channel. Be that as it may, DICE and Electronic Arts recently shared details about the forthcoming first-person shooter’s Conquest Mode that has potential to unite most, if not all fans into agreeing that it’s a good move on the part of developers, as the game type will return to the series’ classic scoring system.
As seen in the tweet below from the official Battlefield V Twitter account, DICE and Electronic Arts plan to have Conquest “return to its roots”, which presumably means it will operate similarly to how it worked with its introduction in Battlefield 1942. This would mean that players will have to drain opponents’ number of tickets to zero or have more tickets than the enemy by the end of the round. This can be done by either capturing more enemy bases than the opposition, or by simply killing the enemies in large amounts.

For those who missed out on Battlefield V‘s direct predecessor – that is, Battlefield 1 – DICE and Electronic Arts changed up Conquest’s formula a bit for the 2016 release, which ultimately received a tepid response from the player base. To be specific, Assault was the variant of Conquest featured in BF1, with the game type featuring a score limit that must be reached in order to win. This is done by gaining points from capturing and defending a number of flags throughout the map, but unlike previous versions of the mode, killing enemies does not count toward gaining points.
All things considered, it will be interesting to see how Battlefield V is received by the gaming community as time marches on, especially if DICE and Electronic Arts continue offering such tried-and-true modes and features such as the original version of Conquest. While many were already on board with the sequel when it was announced that there won’t be a Premium Pass, some are still reserving judgment until more of the title is shown off to the public.
Battlefield V is currently scheduled to release on October 19, 2018 for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
