After taking a gap year between Battlefield games, EA and DICE have official revealed that Battlefield V will be released later this year. This time, it’s promising to show players untold stories of World War 2 never seen before.
Battlefield V will contain its promising exciting multiplayer mode, war stories as a single player campaign, and a special co-op mode, Combined Arms. In addition to these modes, DICE will be rolling out post-release content in the “Tides of War.”
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.
The War Stories mode is brought back from Battlefield 1, showing the conflict through the eyes of the men and the women experience untold human drama, including experiencing the freezing Norwegian landscape as a young resistance fighter or ashore North Africa’s brutal deserts.
Battlefield V multiplayer will deliver the most immersive gameplay of the franchise in a sandbox environment that portrays the battles of World War 2, allowing players to feel the force of the fight and truly shape the war as the war shapes them. Players’ soldiers can now tow stationary weapons, build fortifications and repair war-torn structures to turn the battlefield to the player’s advantage. Whether dragging a squad mate to safety or shooting a grenade out of the sky, players will forge a deeper connection to the ever-evolving world around them and achieve victory against the toughest odds. With the freedom to adapt and evolve the battlefield in new and unseen ways, the battlefield will never be the same.
Battlefield V will be released on October 19th, 2018. More information on this title will be revealed during the EA Play press conference on June 9th.
