• "Battlefield 6" is the next FPS title of the franchise
  • EA and DICE earlier confirmed that the game will arrive this year
  • Rumors suggest that "Battlefield 6" could get its reveal trailer in May

EA and DICE are seemingly taking wide strides to make sure that "Battlefield 6" is the next major entry in the popular series. The upcoming FPS title would reportedly feature a battle royale mode, a massive player count on its multiplayer matches, a new feature and a lot more.

In a new post to the "Battlefield 6" subreddit, user bf6leaker shared some interesting details about the upcoming game. This includes the return of familiar maps like Metro, Locker and Wale Island. The insider also mentioned in the post that the game would handle up to 128 player matches.

The inclusion of a battle royale mode is also shared in the post, which is not surprising since its predecessor also has a BR mode called Firestorm. The insider claimed that its information came from someone close to the game. This is backed by the subReddit's moderator confirming the insider's contact.

Meanwhile, industry insider Tom Henderson shared new information about "Battlefield 6," as well. On Twitter, Henderson posted a newsletter detailing eye-catching information about the unannounced FPS title. The upcoming game apparently will allow players to select their own path, according to the insider.

Players can recruit their very own specialized team throughout the campaign based on their skill sets. Additionally, these assets obtained along the way will help players in their progress.

"Battlefield 6" will feature a single-player campaign, as well as a co-op experience. The insider also mentioned that the game would be set in 2025 and would feature military robots, jets and drones, among others. Henderson also offered some details about the game's battle royale mode.

According to him, the mode would be "completely disconnected from the Firestorm name and instead will adopt a new name, probably for obvious reasons." He added that "players will still be able to play as the 4 different types of soldiers, but instead of just having unique gadgets, players will also have different "abilities", which are similar to Call of Duty perks. To illustrate, Henderson explained that "for example a Scout soldier might have silent footsteps, whereas an Assault soldier might be able to sprint for a longer duration".

Rumors have it that EA and DICE might release the reveal trailer of "Battlefield 6" in May. The game is anticipated to officially roll out this year.
