“The game will feature several new multiplayer modes, including the “continuous” campaign mode “Tides of War”, “Firestorm”, and “Grand Operations”. The Grand Operations mode is an expansion of the “Operations” mode introduced in Battlefield 1, which focuses on matches taking place across multiple stages to simulate a campaign from the war. In Grand Operations, each round will have specific objectives, and performance in each stage will influence the next. Games will culminate with a “Final Stand”, with players using only a primary weapon with limited ammo, and no respawns. Similarly to Battlefield 1, the game will feature a collection of single-player “war stories” based on aspects of World War II.”
During the Microsoft X018 event in Mexico the Xbox team announced the imminent arrival of Xbox One keyboard and mouse support which will be available from November 14th, 2018.
