In a lengthy Reddit post, Community Manager Ben Walke acknowledged that Battlefield V suffered from a rocky launch, “missing” content, inconsistent communication, and general gameplay issues. Operation Sunrise is meant to right all the wrongs.
“With Battlefield V, we are taking a new approach to the series,” wrote Walke. “We have removed premium and will bring all our players together on a journey as we explore new experiences, new content, new ways to play. We have been working hard over the last few months to fix the issues you are seeing and to add the experiences on offer. We want to move forward and kick off, towards an ever-changing live service.”
Operation Sunrise will consist of regular community broadcasts that focus on topics that are most important to players, dev talks to keep players informed, previously announced monthly surveys, and regular gameplay updates.
“Updating games has been a part of gaming for many years, and with Battlefield V we’re pushing ourselves even harder in order to improve and tweak your gameplay experience,” Walke continued.
DICE has been updating Battlefield V biweekly as opposed to releasing major updates on a quarterly basis like it did for the likes of Battlefield 4. The developer is also making an effort to introduce as many changes as it possibly can via server updates that don’t require downloading hefty patches.
