The Battlefield V Reveal Event answered some key questions that have been circulating, especially regarding to Battle Royale Rumors
The Reveal event for Battlefield V was today, and with it we have learned a lot more about DICE’s upcoming shooter. The trailer shows *game-play* though i’m very skeptical about it actually being game-play, and not just a cinematic put together with the UI over the top of it. The full trailer is at the bottom of the page!
Battlefield V will be set in World War Two as had been previously rumored. The trailer shows many WWII Era weapons and vehicles in-between moments of being a cluttered mess.
Single Player Campaign:
DICE is opting to return to their “War-Stories” that first appeared in their WWI shooter Battlefield 1. The Stories in BF1 were short vignettes of soldiers in different theatres of war. During the event it was said the Stories in Battlefield V would be smaller stories from Theater’s of War that are rarely explored in World War 2 Games.
Battlefield V will not have a Premium Pass this time around, meaning that all post release content will be free to all players. The game will include micro-transactions, though it is said they will be purely cosmetic. There is a heavy amount of different customizations shown in the reveal trailer, suggesting you will be able to customize your character in a variety of ways
Battle Royale and New Game Modes:
DICE will not be hopping on the Battle Royale craze, well atleast not entirely. Instead, the Operations game mode has been expanded and will feature an extra sudden-death round named “Last Stand.”
The game will also include a four-player co-op mode called “Combined Arms.” The mode sees a team of four paratroopers. The job of the players is to go behind enemy lines undetected and complete objectives. These missions are supposedly dynamic, and will feature risk-reward aspects allowing the players to decide when to extract, or to risk it for more loot. It was described as a way to “learn the ropes” for those new to Battlefield.
That’s it for the Battlefield V Round-Up. Let us know if your excited about the additions, and what you think of the addition of a Co-Op mode on all of our social media, or by commenting below!
