EA and DICE have shared a new trailer for Battlefield V's upcoming battle royale mode Firestorm. The trailer reveals raw gameplay footage for the first time and showcases available vehicles including tanks, helicopters and tractors.

Battlefield V players will finally get their hands on the long-awaited battle royale mode Firestorm that is dropping in just a few days. To prepare the players for everything that Firestorm is about to throw at them, EA and Dice have shared a new trailer which showcases some of the Firestorm's features.

The trailer starts by introducing the huge map, various locations and terrains that vary from snow-covered hills to pine forests and meadows. Also, you'll notice different weather types such as blizzards and light snow but some areas closer to the sea look sunny with clear blue skies.

Just like in the reveal trailer that was released earlier this month, EA and Dice are once again emphasizing the deadly ring of fire that destroys everything in its path including buildings and vehicles. 

Speaking about vehicles, Battlefield V Firestorm will have a total of seventeen drives at launch. These vary from big and armoured vehicles like tanks to small prototype helicopters. Some vehicles, like tanks, will work a bit differently in Firestorm. You won't be able to drive and shoot tank at the same time, instead, every position in the tank will require one player. 

As for the loot, Firestorm will have Common, Rare and Epic rarity levels of weapons, gadgets and armour. Some of the best loot in the game will be stored in strong boxes and safes and the rarest vehicles will be locked in vehicle lockups. Apparently, working together will open these lockups a lot faster. 

Furthermore, players will be rewarded with Rare or Epic loot if the complete resupply point objectives. Supply drops will be another valuable objective that will offer artillery strikes, V-1 rockets and even a tank.

All in all, Firestorm looks pretty decent and hopefully, it introduces some additions to battle royale genre to make it stand out from other games on the market. We'll have to wait until 25 March 2019 to see just how good or bad Battlefield V's battle royale arena actually is.
