Dice and EA have released a new trailer for Battlefield V to give us a look at what we can expect to see when the game launches on October 19 for PlayStation 4. Come check it out!
Enter mankind’s greatest conflict with Battlefield V as the series goes back to its roots with a never-before-seen portrayal of World War 2. Assemble your Company of customized soldiers, weapons, and vehicles – then take them on an epic journey through the Tides of War. Experience the most intense, immersive Battlefield yet. You will never be the same.
Lars Gustavsson, Senior Producer at EA, had this to say:
Battlefield 1942 released more than a decade ago, and it was the realization of a dream from the original team and myself to relive moments from our favorite WW2 films within our very own game. We’ve brought different eras to life since then, but truth be told, a return to WW2 has always been in our sights.
We also recognize that the depiction of WW2 has changed, for better or worse, in games since that time. Call it fatigue, oversaturation or what you will, we would not let nostalgia get in the way of our previous Battlefield 1 mantra – “untold, unplayed, unseen.”
The result is Battlefield V.
The scope of WW2 is immense and instead of recycling the locations of Battlefield 1942, we decided to capture it by exploring uncommon but pivotal places as well as telling unfamiliar stories. No doubt, Battlefield V will retain memorable WW2 elements such as paratroopers dropping in from the sky to aid in critical mission, but with an unpredictable situation once you hit the ground.
