It’s been awhile since we’ve had an in-depth discussion on Community Games, and this broadcast will provide all of the details regarding what to expect from this highly requested community feature.
To recap the news shared a couple of weeks back: Based on the feedback we’ve received from the Battlefield community, we’ve decided to rebrand this feature as Community Games to better reflect the experience we’ve built.
Throughout the year, we’ve presented the vision that we had for Community Games, and today we can discuss the complete feature set that we’ve developed. By the end of this Broadcast the goal is that you’ll be clear on what you’re getting.
The features listed below will be coming December 9, 2019 and we’ll be back in the New Year with an update on the continued development of Community Games.
Community Games are specifically designed for players who want to create a more personal experience in Battlefield V. Whether you are a content creator that wants their own space to create great stories, or you simply want to create a playlist of your favourite maps for you and your friends, this feature has something for everyone.
Make use of the custom filter system within the Server Browser to search through all of the Community Games that have been created by other players, allowing you to find the experience you’re looking for.
Personalize your Community Game with your own playlists that allow you to pick the number of rounds in your rotation and mix up the game modes (if they share the same Player Count). Choose from the list of available maps, and store all of your choices in your own set of preset configs that you’re able to save for future use.
Protect your experience with a password, or make use of the server kick functionality so that you can more closely control the experience that’s shared by your own close-knit Battlefield V community.
We set out to build Community Games in a way that allows players to have more agency and ownership in Battlefield V, and get into the matches that they want.
- Find the right experience for you – Browse games with a custom filter set to your needs. Want to focus only on Rush? Find Rush 24/7 matches created by the community with Community Games.
- Create a personalized experience – Create your own playlists and store them in your preset configs which can be saved for future use. Saved playlists can be applied when you create a game, allowing you to hit the battlefield faster.
- Create a safe play space – Protect your experience with a password. Kick and ban functionality is in place so that you can build a happy community of players.
- Play some of our time limited modes – Even when your favourite time limited experience is out of rotation, you can keep playing via your own server. (Grind and Fortress are currently not available. These modes are technically built as variants of existing modes and won’t be available in Community Games next week).
- Continue your Battlefield journey – Weapon, vehicle, and rank progression will all stay active on non-password protected servers* so you can continue your journey.
- Struggling to find what you’re looking for? Create your own Community Game, communicate it with friends and through social channels to keep playing.

With Community Games, we wanted to give our players the toolset to share the Battlefield experience with their friends. As noted, we are bringing Community Games on December 9th, 2019. We’re really excited to see what you think once you get in and create your own experience.
