While tomorrow’s trailer will provide our first official look at Firestorm, fans got an early look at the mode recently when Firestorm’s tutorial video recently leaked online. According to that video, the mode will support Solo, Duo, and Squads options, and just as in other battle royale games, each match will begin with players parachuting out of a plane, then scrambling to find weapons and other items to help them survive.
EA has previously said that Firestorm will support up to 64 players. Unlike the rest of the game, the mode isn’t developed by DICE, but rather Criterion, the studio behind the Need for Speed series. The mode derives its name from the ring of fire that gradually closes in on the battlefield as matches progress.
In the meantime, the final event of Chapter 2: Lightning Strikes, dubbed Unstoppable Force, is now live. Along with two Weekly Challenges, the event brings back the fan-favorite Rush mode, but it’ll only be around until March 20.
