DICE’s collection of colossal combined-arms multiplayer battles continues this 12 months with Battlefield V. Following on from the massively profitable Battlefield 1, the sport trades the First World War setting for one thing new, and continues to construct on the popularity for large-scale motion that the collection has constructed up over greater than a decade’s price of video games.
While dozens of gamers per aspect, autos, and lessons are all however assured, Battlefield V guarantees new concepts that can hopefully freshen the collection up and bolster the sport’s player-made ‘moments’. Standing beside this can even be a marketing campaign mode, guaranteeing that a minimum of one of many subsequent huge triple-A shooters will present one thing for the solo gamer.
Work collectively or go head-to-head within the PC’s best multiplayer games.
The full Battlefield V reveal is on May 23, with a stream going down at 1pm PT / 4pm ET / 9pm BST, hosted by Trevor Noah and members of the DICE staff. This stream will supply an in-depth have a look at the options coming to the sport, however till then right here is every thing we all know up to now about Battlefield V.
Battlefield V launch date
Battlefield V will launch in October 2018, placing it up in opposition to Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 within the triple-A shooter market. This is Battlefield’s typical spot, so count on to be blowing holes within the aspect of buildings over the winter months.
Battlefield V setting
While presently unconfirmed, Battlefield V will take place in World War II. The sport’s key artwork, revealed on the PS4 interface, reveals a US paratrooper in 1940s-period uniform. He’s holding a Colt 1911 pistol and an M1 Carbine, each a part of the American paratrooper arsenal in the course of the battle.
If that wasn’t sufficient to persuade you of Battlefield V’s setting, a minute clip of gameplay revealed by DICE within the advertising marketing campaign reveals what seems just like the HUD for a sport of Conquest, with one aspect utilizing the Blankenkreuz as their icon – a logo Germany used for his or her military between 1935 and the tip of WWII. The different aspect has the Union Flag, indicating that Britain will likely be represented within the sport.
Battlefield V marketing campaign
EA has confirmed that there will likely be a Battlefield V single-player mode. The sport’s weblog says that the sport will see the return of Battlefield War Stories, particularly, that are a collection of small campaigns first launched in Battlefield 1. This probably signifies that Battlefield V will present numerous views from throughout the battle so you’ll be able to count on quite a few nations and army roles to be represented.
Battlefield V modes
Battlefield’s bread and butter has all the time been Conquest mode – the large-scale seize level sport – so that’s all however assured to be on the coronary heart of Battlefield V. But the Battlefield blog guarantees “new modes and experiences,” and teases that Operations – the Battlefield 1 mode that hyperlinks a number of maps collectively – will return. But what different modes will there be?
Battlefield V Battle Royale is an actual potential, and DICE have allegedly even prototyped the mode. With Treyarch experimenting with battle royale in Black Ops 4’s Blackout mode, it appears probably that Battlefield would need a slice of the Fortnite/PUBG pie, too. And for the reason that collection already has a historical past with large participant counts and squad-based gameplay, it makes a variety of sense.
Battlefield V lessons
DICE’s collection is class targeted, however over time the soldier classes have been modified and refined from sport to sport. However, we are able to virtually definitely count on Battlefield V to characteristic a minimum of 4 fundamental lessons: a frontline assault-style trooper, a medic, a assist function, and a sniper.
Battlefield 1 launched extra specialised roles within the type of cavalry, pilots, and tankers, which implies there’s potential for Battlefield V to have its personal WW2-themed specialists, too. The battle launched rocket launchers, and so there’ll must be allowances made for this sort of ordnance. Will the engineer make a return?
