- Deluxe Edition release was on November 15.
- Origin Access members were allowed to play a 10-hour trial from November

DICE announced that Battlefield would run on a battle royale mode called Firestorm which will be released in the spring of 2019. The other modes installed in previous versions feature such as Conquest, Domination, Frontlines, Breakthrough, Frontlines and Team Death-match. The new Combined Arms mode restores the cooperation in Battlefield through the introduction of 4-player missions where the team members have to work in unison not to die. The game ends when the four members are wiped out. Grand operations will be used as a test for this mode where team missions are of four days and the outcome of each day determines the happenings of the next day. For instance, the war itinerary for the second day will be the remainder of the first day and so forth. The trick for this game is to wipe other teams while ensuring that yours stays up at all time. The game will proceed to the fourth day if there is a draw.
There are four classes for this game that is; Assault, Support, Medic and Scout and each of these classes has a set of archetype to choose depending on their specialty.
The player progress in the game follows a cycle of obtaining class ranks and unlocking additional weapons in the organization of your company, and the higher you rank, the more the privileges. You can set several specializations and change them at will depending on your mood.
You can also change the physical appearance of the players with both male and female options with the options of customizing the clothing and face paint. You can complete three daily assignments which refresh after 24 hours to receive a higher payout in game-currency which you use to unlock other levels.
Team play is encouraged where you are automatically placed in a random squad, and you can stay in touch with team members through menus and loading screens. You can watch the progress of the team from an overview map and see your living team members and a death camera to show you the dead teammates. Team points accumulate with the kills the team makes. When all team members are deceased, they all return to the deployment map.
