Battlefield V Revealed And Returns Towards World War II
Dice and EA have unveiled the release date of Battlefield V. The WW shooter will be released on October 19th and takes place in a Second World War theme. Good to know it that there will not be any premium passes and DLCs to purchase, the pay-to-win design is gone.
A new gameplay mode, Grand Operations, was introduced. These are like the Operations from Battlefield 1but are bigger. They cover multiple game modes, take place over multiple maps, and they’re all wrapped up in a four-day narrative journey that covers historical moments from World War II. The single player War Stories mode will also be returning and continues the anthology format of Battlefield 1. Once again, the aim of this mode is to bring war into perspective with untold stories of real and relatable characters and their experiences. Players will meet new characters, the men and women who changed history. One of them will be told from the perspective of a female Nowegian Resistance fighter, battling against the German occupation. The trailer shows that players can shoulder barge through doors move and shoot while crawling backwards. It also showcases the soldier customization in action, as evidence by the woman’s hook-like hand.
Battlefield 5 will not have a premium pass this time around, meaning major post-release content will be available to players for free.
Battlefield 5 is set during World War 2 and will tell smaller stories about theaters of war rarely explored in WW2 games.
EA has confirmed Battlefield 5 will have a single-player mode, using the phrasing “single-player stories” during an earnings report and “War Stories” in a recent tweet – a reference to Battlefield 1’s vignette-style single-player missions. During Battlefield 5’s official reveal event, we got our first look at some of the characters featured in these war stories, including a young resistance fighter from Norway.
