Battlefield Rumors

Following a tweet about clues about the next Battlefield game from an EA player survey, industry insider Tom Henderson, who is considered a credible source is back with more rumors about the next installment in the military shooter series. The features said to be mentioned in the survey are a Battle Pass, a Platoon/Clan System, a F2P element, evolving maps, and weapon blueprints. Now a new post called Tom Henderson's weekly GONE GOLD Newsletter #1 has more (thanks Charlie INTEL). Word is the new game is called simply Battlefield, it will be set in the near future, and a first gameplay-free trailer should arrive in May. Here's a bit more:
Per sources, I can confirm that the next Battlefield instalment will simply be called BATTLEFIELD and takes place around 10 years from now. The title is set in a modern/very near future, which gives the developers a chance to be able to implement weapons and vehicles that are currently in military development today.

The setting is very similar to how the Call of Duty franchise released Black Ops 2 in 2012, with the game being set in 2025 (so 10-15 years from its release date). So yes, expect military robots (Boston Dynamics?), drones, jets, helicopters, tanks and that sort of thing. The game is NOT a hub for all Battlefield titles, as the recent viral Reddit leak claims.

The game will feature a revolutionary campaign compared to other previous instalments. The campaign will focus on you and your specialist unit, where you’ll be able to chose which superpower you fight for. In BATTLEFIELD, there isn’t necessarily “Axis and Allies” as you will be able to chose your own path. Both the USA and Russia, who are the games only standing superpowers, will offer to “recruit” your specialist team and their skills throughout the campaign, which will be a valuable asset to both sides. It would also appear like this year’s campaign is a co-op experience.

Will the battles still sound like a bad hen's night?

Never realy got this. I love "Realism" in games but a few screaming anachronistic female soldiers isn't as rediculous as say, the absolute lack of civilian noncombatants and children getting murdered accidently on the battlefield, respawning and lack of hideous non-fatal woundings not to mention all the fancy guns that nobody actually had in these theaters, or never in such numbers for the few that were. I'm starting to judge people by which specific concessions to gameplay and accessibility they have issues with.
