Battlefield V in October

Here's the Battlefield V official reveal trailer showing off the by-now expected World War II setting in the next installment in DICE's military shooter series. EA says this will be released on October 19th, and they are already accepting preorders for Standard and Deluxe editions. They note the game will have no premium pass, and apparently will likewise feature neither a battle royale mode nor loot boxes. They do promise that in its single-player War Stories, an "untold side of World War 2 comes to light," that their Grand Operations mode is grand, and that Combined Arms will add "all-or-nothing online co-op that will test vets and new recruits alike." They also talk of new company appearance options, leading them to call this the deepest, most immersive Battlefield yet. Here's more on what to expect from the official announcement:
In new and classic multiplayer modes, players can lead their own unique Company to victory in a dynamic multiplayer experience where every battle is unique. The Company allows players to create and deeply customize their soldiers, weapons and vehicles that will evolve as they progress, covering everything from the way they look to the way they play. Fan favorite modes like the 64-player Conquest return, with the game’s multiplayer culminating in Grand Operations, an all-new live, event-based experience within Tides of War. These multimap, multi-mode dynamic events take players through vast historical battles to relive moments of bravery and desperation while fighting to the final objective.

The acclaimed single-player campaign mode from Battlefield 1, War Stories, returns for Battlefield V. Witness the conflict through the eyes of men and women of World War 2 and experience untold stories of human drama, filled with Battlefield moments. Experience the freezing Norwegian landscapes as a young Norwegian resistance fighter or come ashore into the desert heat of North Africa - and more.

Tides of War is DICE’s new approach to live services, where players will set out on an epic journey with their Company in unexpected battles throughout World War 2. There will be no premium pass, all players will have access to the same maps and modes, keeping the community unified as they progress through Battlefield V. In Tides of War, their journey through World War 2 will grow through themed experiences that will include events and all-new ways to play like Grand Operations, while also unlocking the latest themed rewards such as weapons and vehicles to further shape their Company.

I have a bad feeling EA/Dice is overselling this. I mean it sounds interesting enough in retrospect, but all I can recall is buggy launches for Battlefield 3, 4, and Battlefield 1.

Also that trailer seemed like bullshot to me.

Edit:

No lootboxes is good news though.

That trailer is a chaotic mess. So, this is straight up WW2? Strange that all the soldiers were irregulars.

I was hoping that this might be some kind of alternate history, but looks like not the case.

Bummer that they chose WW2 when so many other interesting settings exist out there.

DICE should have just manned up and done a pure fantasy/sci-fi/alternate reality game, although technically they still have time to announce this as such.

Building and repairing can be good in a fps, having people carry even LESS ammo to force them to rely on squad/team resupplies though, and other forced 'teamwork' design changes usually end up being more annoying than useful.

Anyway, I'm mildly interested; DICE's art team is still stupendous, tech looks great from what's shown here, but I think all the forced social/1000 hour grind shit might make me skip this in the end.

People really are flipping their triggeredness about the female soldiers. Like the Battlefield series has ever been a realistic franchise anyways *shrug*. I can name a few other more 'authentic' WW2 military shooters for that type of experience.

Personally I don't give a flock as long as the game, A. Ain't a buggy mess, and B. Won't have loot boxes (which apparently is the case), and C. Has Joystick support for PC Day 1.

It's like DICE can read my mind

I always wanted a WWII game where you get to fight against black female nazis with blue face paint.

No one ever said it had to be an authentic WW2 simulator but this SJW pandering is fucking irritating in all aspects of life. Classic liberal revisionism.

Even for BF... even for CoD... that was a really messy, chaotic trailer.

MFW this game retails for $120 though since it apparently won't come with loot boxes or DLC. There's no way EA will let those slide without some kind of huge catch.

For sure, but I believe it has more to do with marketing the game to a wider audience than SJW pandering. It's a smart business move to make it appeal to more people.


Anyway ww2 I'm bored off, but perhaps the coop and base building might be interesting enough. I'll have to see more. But I got burnt out on BF1 pretty fast, as it brought nothing new really.

They might do the usual mountain dew and Doritos tie in but surprisingly they didn't jack the price of the base game.

Looks like they tied the "deluxe" edition to special assignments where you complete them you'll get some sort of perk, probably a slight faster progression to higher rank.

We'll have to see how far they take the alt-history with this game, mount that 4x scope to your M1 garand.

Seems Gearbox was going to make a game like this, renegade soldiers aka inglorious bastards.

Oof. This looks bad.

I was a BF diehard. Lost interest in BF1 quickly. This looks like a hard pass.

Doesn't this stand for "my face when?" What face? What face do you make when games cost $120? I need to know.
