If you’re a fan of Battlefield 5’s battle royale mode Firestorm and wanted a more compact experience than playing with a full squad, then you just got your wish! Today, DICE announced that a Battlefield 5 Firestorm duo mode is now available, though for a limited time.
It’s available now, and will be accessible until Monday! Here’s the official announcement:
Today we’re introducing Duo to Firestorm. It’s available in game for you to play right now.
It’s our first time putting Duo out into the wild having started work on the mode much later in Firestorms development. We love it, and we think it’s a great addition to the game, but we recognize best that we’re better hearing that from you, and we’d appreciate your support in helping to make it a strong addition to Firestorm, and Battlefield V.
We’re making it available until 10am UTC on Monday 15th April, at which point we’ll come back to you all to ask how you found the experience. Did it change the pacing of the games for you? Did it cause for hotter drops? Were you enjoying it as much as Solos and Squads? Were you primarily playing with Randoms, or Squadding with a friend, and how did each of those two matchmaking types change things for you with the experience?
You can add your feedback here on the thread, so don’t be shy to share your thoughts as you go. Next week, we’ll look at the hard data that we get from our various teams, as well as the feedback that you share with us here. We’ll then come back and share our learnings next week.
Needless to say, if the community likes it, you can bet it’ll be a regular part of Firestorm.
Have you tried duos in Firestorm yet? What do you make of it so far?
