EA DICE has officially revealed the latest installment in the Battlefield series, Battlefield V. With the reveal comes information on multiplayer modes, story, release date, and more. One item players have been wondering about is what character customization options Battlefield V will have. Fortunately, EA DICE addressed this question yesterday by detailing Battlefield V’s new customization system.
What Customization Options Does Battlefield V Have?
Battlefield V’s character customization options come in the form of a new system called The Company, which can be found across all game modes in Battlefield V. Each and every character in a player’s “Company” will be fully customizable. Some of these customization options include race, gender, face, face paint, jackets, pants, helmets, and hats.
Additionally, each character in a Company will be able to customize each battlefield tool with weapons being broken into five or more components including sights, stocks, and bayonets. Battlefield V’s customization extends to vehicles in a player’s garage with tanks and biplanes having their own customization options.
As confirmed by EA, Battlefield V is ditching loot boxes and microtransactions will be restricted solely to cosmetic purchases. This plays into Battlefield V’s expanded customization options, although to what extent remains to be seen.
To make things easier on player’s wallets, microtransactions won’t be the only way to accrue in-game currency thanks to a new mission type called Special Assignments. By taking on one of these Special Assignments, players can grind for in-game currency without ever spending a dime.
Another thing EA is doing away with is the Premium Pass with EA no longer charging for DLC and multiplayer content. Battlefield V is currently available for pre-order and there are a variety of pre-order incentives on offer. Looking to get a jump on your character customization? Here are the official pre-order incentives for Battlefield V.
- Early Access to the Battlefield V beta

- Special Assignments
