Battlefield V May 23rd Reveal Confirmed

The Battlefield Website now tells us we can tune in for a reveal stream for Battlefield V on May 23rd, confirming a revelation last week discovered through an Easter egg (thanks Don). This page has more details on the livestream reveal of the military shooter, saying it will be hosted by comedian Trevor Noah, host of The Daily Show and that the festivities get underway at 4:00 pm EDT on Mixer, Twitch, and YouTube. Trevor Noah offers his thoughts on Instagram, where he says that he considers himself a gamer first and foremost. To further whet our appetites, Electronic Arts and DICE offer this post with 10 things to expect from the reveal. This includes word to expect a new setting, so maybe a little War of 1812 action? We shall see. Here's the post:

On May 23, join comedian Trevor Noah and members of the DICE team as they present the Battlefield™ V Live Reveal. As the live stream draws near, we’ve compiled the top ten things to look forward to.

1. A New Battlefield
It’s a brand-new experience and still everything you love about Battlefield – where every fight is different and brought to life across unexpected theatres of war. Discover the new challenges that will change war forever.

2. …in a New Setting
Battlefield 1 gave players the definitive World War 1 experience that brought the dawn of all-out war to life. But the next Battlefield happens on another frontline. The live reveal will give players the first look at DICE’s immersive portrayal of the new setting.

3. Info Straight from the Developers Behind Battlefield V
Come for Trevor Noah, stay for the developers. Hear from DICE team members Oskar Gabrielson, the head of DICE Stockholm, Andreas Morell, senior producer, Lars Gustavsson, creative director, and Daniel Berlin, design director, as they fill you in on their Battlefield V vision.

4. Unseen Multiplayer Moments
You can of course expect large-scale multiplayer in the next Battlefield – but Battlefield V takes it to the next level. Prepare for multiplayer that spans multiple maps and modes, meaning you’ll experience more varied and exciting Battlefield moments.

5. Unmatched Sights and Sounds
Battlefield has always been about high-fidelity immersion, and Battlefield V isn’t any different. Tune in, and you’ll be among the first to hear and see the stunning environments that you’ll soon be playing within.

6. New Modes and Experiences
A player-favorite from Battlefield 1, Operations have given you the chance to take epic journeys across several maps. Will this teamplay-focused experience be in the next Battlefield? You’ll know if you watch the live reveal!

7. Gameplay Changes
While we don’t want to scoop our own reveal, you can bet your favorite Battlefield 1 weapon that exciting gameplay changes are coming. Because of this, we suggest not even blinking during the Battlefield V Live Reveal.

8. Trevor Noah
The comedian and host of the The Daily Show is not only a gamer, but a defender of video gaming. Funny, smart, and loves video games? We couldn’t think of a better person to host our live reveal then this South African legend.

9. The Return of War Stories
DICE believes in both all-out multiplayer and single player, and the live reveal will have more info on the returning fan-favorite War Stories. Prepare for untold, compelling narratives in a new setting.

10. Answers to All the Speculation
The recent Battlefield Easter Egg chase has turned much of the community into sleepless sleuths. Is your whiteboard covered in Morse code? Is your search history full of white horses? How close were you to the truth of Battlefield V? It’s time to find out.

Watch the Reveal live on stream, May 23 at 1 PM PT / 4 PM ET / 10 PM CET via the following:

So, WW2 AGAIN. That's too bad.

Not BF WW2, it's BF 1945. So the naming convention would indicate that they could make an easy transition to BF 2143 in the future ^_^ *fingers crossed*

We can hope.

As far as historical games go, Korea has never been done. WW2 era weapons combined with early jets and helos is very appealing.

There was only Battlefield 1942, and that came out 16 years ago. And then if you want to, you could count 1943 for consoles. And if they actually made their game engine more moddable we would have had Forgotten Hope 3 and 4 by now, but we haven't so...

At least for me, Battlefield 1945 is definitely what I've been waiting for. I fear though it will be bloated with progression-ware that has been the new traditional design model for these games rather than just being a 'ww2-sandbox' like the original.

I probably should have hidden that in a spoiler tag, but it was late at night when I caught that on the Battlefront reddit, just felt like reposting.

I'm curious as to what the Dragon Age - Dungeons and Dragons partnership thing is all about. If they could channel the DnD franchise for meaningful content, then that would bode well for the future of the DA franchise.

That's an impressive spoiler list!

So WW2 BF, Anthem is apparently terrible since it needs Snoop Dogg and Zac Effron to sell it, they are paving the way for a Boba Fett movie(?), and the Dragon Age series gets another probably non-Dragon Age 1-like entry.

That sucks, I was still holding out hope that Anthem would at least turn out to be some fun coop; my dwindling coop group has been playing bargain bin The Division and Killing Floor 2, and we're in need of another game pretty soon.

I suppose it's pointless to have hope that the Star Wars Bounty Hunter game(or Battlefront expansion??) turns out well.

I think everyone is overlooking the importance of the shift to the V. That can either mean, Vietnam, V-Day (WWII) or it could be homage to the old 80's TV'd programe and mean Visitors where battlefield turns into a hugescale humans versus aliens combat game with the ability to board the motherships (TITANS) and take them down from the inside (CORES).

I hope it will be 2143, nothing else will rekindle my trust in them greedy turds. If it is 2143 I will have to transfer all my money to my wife to prevent me from financially ruining my family.

Would be awesome if it were Vietnam in all of its futile, gory, morally ambiguous glory.

Futile and Gory sure, the futile attempt capturing that certain flag. Morally ambiguous? Doubtful, not from EA/Dice. Nothing really morally ambiguous or any representation of the illegality of specific conflicts with any Battlefield game, its all about those kill streaks man. For an MP FPS you could check out Rising Storm 2. The closest to 'walking through a jungle for real world half hour only to walk into a punji trap or get ambushed by AI' Vietnam SP FPS is Vietcong, which has not made it to a digital re-release.

It's not 2143, so the only real question here is "how disappointing is it?"

Man I've give both my nuts for a sequel to 2142. Still one if not my favorite Battlefield games ever. I mean, 1942 was terrific but it hasn't aged so well now, but Battlefield 2 was amazing and still is. 2142 was like that, just with lasers and giant mechs. I don't know how long its gonna take DICE to go back to the future, if they ever do it.

THERE WERE NO LASERS!!!

That was the main complaint from so many friends that never played this after Battlefield 2... 2142 was all kinetic weaponry. All infantry fired bullets, only the Rorsch railgun emplacement was "laser-like" and even that was technically kinetic.

But yes, 2142 was the best Battlefield game ever.

I kinda hope they're holding 2142 for the next console generation when they'll have Ryszen CPUs, so we'll actually see some massive gameplay enhancements across all platforms.

Yet another reveal to a reveal, Recursive Reality strikes again!

The DICE engine(Frostbite 3? 4?) for BFV will be gorgeous, no doubt. The gameplay, gradually dumbed down, but still fun at first. The sounds, epic, I'm sure.

I think I'm Battlefielded out though, for at least awhile. Especially at 100 dollars for the 'full' game.

Also, I can't help but wonder how many man-hours get wasted on the ridiculous Easter Egg bullshit that .0001% of the community actually does (not counting the many people who just Youtube the clues for the items)

Always so many negative nancies in comments on here lol. Oh well, my group is excited for it. We didn't play BF1 as much as BF4 but that's as much of real life getting in the way as anything. BF1 is a cinematic trip playing that and am looking forward to seeing what era they do next (WW2 being my bet).
