The launch of Battlefield V is now coming forth, due November 20th on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. David Sirland, Multiplayer Producer for Battlefield V at DICE, once again answered some fan questions on Twitter yesterday. He revealed that the game will feature 60Hz tickrate servers on PC at launch, while consoles will have 30Hz tickrate servers. The goal is to improve from there after launch, however, presumably on all platforms.

Sirland also said that 120Hz tickrate servers will be used whenever smaller game modes become available in Battlefield V. These were used with Battlefield 1’s Incursions, a competitive small-scale mode which is a big departure from traditional matches given its 5-versus-5 setup. We’ll see if DICE comes up with a similar mode for Battlefield V.

Sirland then suggested that maps from the single player War Stories could be eventually converted to become multiplayer maps later on.

Are you planning to get Battlefield V in a  few weeks from now? Let us know in the comments.
