The previously announced Battlefield Mobile has recently gone live on the Play Store. We haven’t had the chance to try the game out as of yet but according to the game’s description on the store, it promises the same all-out bombastic experience that the Battlefield series is widely known for and why it’s beloved by so many fans. The description reads:
“ONLY IN BATTLEFIELD
Across all game modes, you’ll experience the same wild situations and explosive spectacles Battlefield is famous for. Whether it’s outrunning a collapsing tower on your ATV, parachuting off a building while firing a rocket launcher, or burying your enemies under the rubble of a building you destroyed with your tank, every match is unforgettable.”
The game also seeks to deliver the same class-based loadout system as the previous games and is all-in-all advertised as a portable version of that same thrilling experience. The mobile game also features a customization system that lets you personalize and customize your soldiers according to your personal playstyle. This feature is probably going to be the moneymaker for EA considering their monetization practices and how easily monetizable this feature can really be, remains to be seen.
While it remains to be seen how an experience like Battlefield would work on a smartphone, it’s quite fascinating that a handful of major franchises are seemingly making their moves into the portable market. It’s a pretty smart decision too considering the success of major IPs on phones like Call of Duty Mobile and PUBG, as well as the overwhelming popularity of mobile-centric games like Mihoyo’s Genshin Impact and Gameloft’s Asphalt series. Mobile has also long been home to various ports of renowned titles like Castlevania: Symphony of The Night, the Grand Theft Auto series, Max Payne, Final Fantasy, Ace Attorney, and many others. It’s going to be interesting to see how far mobile gaming will go in the near future.
