Battlefield 5 battle royale mode announced

During the EA Play press conference today, DICE announced a Battlefield 5 battle royale mode—they literally just said "Royale" and showed a screen we've seen before, indicating that it's a fairly recent development. 

It's "Royale re-imagined for Battlefield," they say, with destruction, teamplay and other "pillars" of Battlefield, and it'll come after launch. We'll apparently know more about it later this year.
