Battlefield 5 pre-orders are live ahead of the game’s release date. While some of you might want to pre-order the game today, others are better off waiting a few days, weeks or, in some cases, skipping a pre-order.
With Battlefield 1 development slowing down, EA DICE’s turned its attention to the next installment in the long-running series. The next Battlefield game is called Battlefield 5 (stylized as Battlefield V) and it takes Xbox One, PS4, and Windows PC players to the battlefields of World War 2.
DICE hasn’t confirmed a release for the Nintendo Switch so there’s a good chance the game will skip the portable console in 2018 and beyond.
The Battlefield 5 beta gave prospective buyers their first in-depth look at the next Battlefield game. We don’t have the full picture just yet, but we know quite a bit about character progression, maps, weapons, modes, Tides of War (this year’s version of DLC), and the features that will be missing at launch.
The beta and the return to World War 2 might’ve already sold some of you on a Battlefield 5 pre-order. There are also some other perks to putting in a pre-order including early access to the final version of the game.
Putting in a pre-order is certainly tempting, but there are also some reasons why you might want to hang back and wait for more information and for better deals to emerge.
In this guide we’ll take you through the best reasons to, and not to, pre-order Battlefield 5 for the Xbox One, PlayStation 4, or Windows PC right now.
Pre-Order if You Want to Play Battlefield 5 ASAP
If you want to play Battlefield 5 the second it goes live you'll want to pre-order a very specific copy of the game.
Pre-ordering the game's Deluxe Edition will grant you early access to the final version of the game later on this week.
Those who pre-order the regular version of the game ($60) will get access to Battlefield 5 on November 20th while those who pay a little bit more for the Deluxe Edition ($80) will get access to the game on November 15th.
If you want to play even earlier than that, you should think about getting an EA Access (Xbox) or Origin Access (PC) account.
The Battlefield 5 Play First Trial for EA Access and Origin Access members opened up on November 9th. Both of these require a paid subscription, but you can start playing right now if you have a membership.
If you think you might want to start ranking up your character the second Battlefield 5 goes live, think about putting in a pre-order.
