EA Announces Battlefield V Launching Worldwide on October 19th #BattlefieldV



Click on the Headline for the Trailer.

EA Announces Battlefield V Launching Worldwide on October 19

Today DICE, an Electronic Arts studio, officially announced Battlefield V, immersing players in unexpected battles and untold stories of World War 2 as never seen before. Featuring a fresh portrayal of one of mankind’s biggest conflicts, Battlefield V allows players to feel the unmatched intensity of all-out war and travel to unexpected but crucial moments of World War 2 through new and signature multiplayer modes, single-player War Stories and the cooperative Combined Arms. In Battlefield V, embark on a continuing, grand journey post-launch in the brand new Tides of War, created to make sure the battlefield is constantly evolving with new events, challenges, battles, and rewards that are always within reach – for all Battlefield V owners.

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 is a homecoming for DICE as a studio—a return to the era that came to define the Battlefield franchise. But as nostalgic as we are about World War 2, we wanted to challenge the preconception of the era with an unexpected portrayal of this familiar setting. Our vision with Battlefield V is to let players explore new and untold sides of the conflict that shaped the modern world,” said Oskar Gabrielson, General Manager, DICE. “The scale of each battle and level of immersion is unlike anything we’ve done before in Battlefield and players are in for an epic journey.”

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.

Get the first look at Battlefield V and World War 2 as never seen before at battlefield.com. Tune in to the EA PLAY Press Conference on June 9th when we debut Grand Operations to the world.

Battlefield V will be available worldwide October 19th on Xbox One, PlayStation®4 and Origin for PC. Those that order the Battlefield V Deluxe Edition will get access three days early on October 16, while EA Access and Origin Access members† will be able to jump into the Play First Trial on October 11. Players that pre-order any edition of the game with the Battlefield V Enlister Offer will get early access to the Open Beta and other in-game benefits including soldier customization options, access to Special Assignments starting at launch week and immediate access to five weapons to use in Battlefield 1. Xbox is the console marketing partner for Battlefield V and NVIDIA is the PC marketing partner.

In celebration of the upcoming launch, EA and DICE are giving all Battlefield players the opportunity to download content from Battlefield 1 and Battlefield 4 for free on the Road to Battlefield V. Now for a limited time, players can download and keep Battlefield 1 In the Name of Tsar and Battlefield 4 Final Stand.

Personally I think the story writers all wrote SLASH fic back in the day, and now this is all they can do in a shooter to defeat the patriarchy.

And that towed dual 20MM AA on the tank towards the end of the video? Yeah no recoil there in the physics when fired you will note.

Tides of War sounds like DICE's answer to Battle Pass. That probably means you get to pay a fee for the chance to unlock cosmetics by grinding a bunch of tasks in a "themed experience" (certain time frame). If you don't unlock the cosmetics that you already paid for before the "themed experience" ends, well... fuck you. That's why I'm sure there will also probably be an option to pay yet again for an instant unlock of the cosmetics that you already paid for. Wash & repeat every couple of months.

Don't worry though, people eat this bullshit up in Fortnight so it's gotta be good.

Truth is, if it has great gameplay... I'm there. If all this is is a vehicle to sell time locked cosmetics... forget it.

It would be polite to say that the video attached stretches the definition of "Gameplay Trailer."

That looked more like a highly-choreographed in-engine cinematic with several small sections where the first-person ketchup-on-screen mechanic is demonstrated.

So you're saying single person intro-narrative shooter on rails video clip as opposed to free form action mulitplayer that will happen at E3.

What I didn't like about the video was seeing the main character shoot down a plane and get 250 xp for a vehicle kill. The planes in WWI were already made of paper and this game seems to be continuing that tradition.

It's a far cry from Battlefield 1942 were a good pilot could totally turn the course of the game and mostly could only be killed by an AA gun or another plane.

This series has completely lost me. Not at all an improvement of what it used to be. Never mind the pretty graphics, the core of the game has turned to twitchfest bullshit.

I would have loved Korea/Vietnam or another modern warfare game. I really miss Battlefield 4 and the newest Black Ops isn't going to do it for me.

It gets weirder, turns out someone (teammate?) tosses an anti-tank grenade into the air at it and you are shooting that with your MG-42 , which explodes the 'nade and that destroys the plane. Xbox live stream show after the reveal reviewed every damn scene of the reveal with one of the Devs after the Trevor Noah dog&pony.

I skipped Battlefield 1 and I guess I will skip Black Ops 4 since I just don't play many online shooters any more and I really only want to play something with big team battles and vehicles.

I'm certainly hopeful that Battlefield V will be good, but I'm so bummed out that it is going back to WWII again. It's like a total "Meh."

I do like the idea of a game with a lot of skins and characters, that is the kind of thing I live for. That is what I was hoping to see in Battlefront 2 and they pretty much refused to have any customization at all because it wasn't "canon". Lame. I don't care if there is a Pink Vader in the game, I want there to be those skins and characters to unlock. Unlocking those characters and skins is why you play. Because otherwise these games don't have very large skill trees and you burn through everything they have in just a few days.

Honestly, I can't understand why it's this and not a proper follow-up to 2142.

Not only do you satisfy a niche core of your fan base, and give yourself license to implement whatever innovations in style and design to push your horse ahead of the pack, but then you don't have a bunch of raging neck-beards crying about babes in WW2 (and stupid backlash against that).
