One of the problems with multiplayer is that it only takes a small number of loud mouthed, racist jerks to ruin the experience for the community at large. In an effort to prevent this, Electronic Arts and DICE have implemented a profanity filter into Battlefield V, which is currently being tested in open beta ahead of the game's polished release. That's all fine and dandy, except that EA and DICE have chosen to censor some goofy words. Like what, you ask? In its current state, players are prohibited from saying that nasty "D" word in the Battlefield V beta. You know, DLC, short for 'downloadable content'.

There has been a lot of excitement brewing around Electronic Arts’ Battlefield V, and with good reason. The game has been held up as a showcase for NVIDIA’s RTX real-time ray-tracing, which looks absolutely amazing using graphics cards like the GeForce RTX 2080 Ti. However, there’s more to Battlefield V than just fancy effects – it will also bring with it a new battle royale mode to keep things fresh for gamers. The new mode is called Firestorm, and it supports a maximum of 64 players. However, these 64 players will be split up into 16 squads, with four people per squad. Firestorm is the largest map ever created for a Battlefield and players will be... Read more...

We are on the cusp of the era of real-time ray tracing in games. It effectively begins once NVIDIA starts shipping its GeForce RTX series cards based on the company's Turing GPU architecture, with dedicated Tensor and RT cores underneath the hood, but what kind of performance can we realistically expect? That depends on the situation. As you might already know, real-time ray tracing requires an enormous amount of horsepower. It deals with levels of detail that are beyond the scope of rasterization rendering, and can produce photorealistic visuals. To bring real-time ray tracing to games, companies like NVIDIA are focusing a sort of hybrid implementation, where parts of a scene are ray-traced.... Read more...
Now that NVIDIA has announced its GeForce RTX family of graphics cards, all that anyone can talk about these days is real-time ray-tracing. NVIDIA is billing it as a key selling point for the GeForce RTX family, and we can see why the company is so willing to unleash the feature on gamers. However, while gamers have been increasingly pushing their rigs to enjoy 4K gaming, future titles relying on NVIDIA RTX technology are currently running at 1080p. But given the footage that we've seen -- and that continues to leak out -- it could be worth the tradeoff if you like eye candy. Take for example this leaked alpha footage from Battlefield V. This footage goes beyond what we showed... Read more...
You can rake in a boatload of money with a "free" game these days: all you need to do is look at the insane popularity and over a billion dollars in revenue that Fortnite has generated for proof. EA is one of the biggest game publishers on the planet and Battlefield is one of its biggest franchises. Battlefield V is coming, and it was confirmed in late May that the game would use a WWII setting.  One of the big questions that have been burning in the minds of gamers looking forward to Battlefield V is if the anticipated battle royale mode for the game would be free like Fortnite and PUBG. The answer to that question is an unequivocal no. EA has said that Battlefield V will have a battle... Read more...
This week EA and DICE announced Battlefield V and gave up lots of details on the game with one of the most prominent differences between this game and others being the inclusion of female characters on the front lines. That fact led many gamers to complain about historical inaccuracies and problems with women in the WWII shooter. Battlefield V developer Oskar Gabrielson has now stepped up and is clearly laying down the law. He tweeted, "First, let me be clear about one thing. Player choice and female playable characters are here to stay." Gabrielson followed that up with, "We want Battlefield V to represent all those who were a part of the greatest drama in human history, and give players... Read more...
