Battlefield 6 has 'levolution on steroids' and free-to-play element says insider
It still hasn’t been officially revealed but a regular Battlefield 6 leaker has shared more info, including the return of levolution.
The next Battlefield game (assumed to be called Battlefield 6) has been rumoured for quite a while and EA has already confirmed its existence, as well as a release date of this year.
So far, most of the information shared about it has come from proven insider Tom Henderson and he has even more claims per his latest video.
First, he claims that Battlefield 6 will once again feature destructible environments, but Henderson refers to it as ‘levolution but on steroids’.
Levolution, possibly the most irritating marketing term of the last few years, was a feature in Battlefield 4 and Battlefield Hardline which allowed players to radically alter the entire map. For example, on one map, destroying a dam would flood the whole map with water.
Henderson says that levolution is being implemented across every map and every building can be destroyed, barring some exceptions like any that contain an objective.
What’s more, destruction isn’t scripted, meaning if you were to destroy the right side of a building, said building will fall towards the right. Destroy the left side of it and it will fall to the left.
Henderson suggests that this can be used strategically as well as just for fun. One example he gives is destroying a building a certain way so it will fall onto a nearby road and destroy the enemy tanks that are positioned there.
The online squad groups will be making a return and, much like Battlefield 5, will be comprised of four members. However, while an exact number wasn’t given, multiple squads can be placed into a single unit, which could be for the rumoured 128-player battles Henderson previously talked about.
He also mentions cross-play between the PC, PlayStation 5, and Xbox Series X/S versions, which seems believable considering the series’ heavy focus on multiplayer.
He does add that cross-play will be implemented for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox one versions too if those versions ‘do come to fruition’, which could suggest that EA may scrap them and prioritise the next gen releases.
Lastly, he talks about the inclusion of a battle pass and some kind of free-to-play aspect. That last one is something EA even hinted at, perhaps a battle royale mode to compete with Activision’s Call Of Duty: Warzone.
Fans shouldn’t have to wait much longer for an official announcement or trailer, as Battlefield 6, or whatever it’s called, is believed to be heading for a reveal sometime in the spring.
