EA and DICE have officially announced Battlefield V. Set to release in November, the game will be set during World War II and will feature a mix of new and signature Battlefield modes, including the single player War Stories and co-op Combined Arms.
Speaking at the game’s launch, DICE General Manager Oskar Gabrielson said “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 stories of the conflict that shaped the modern world. 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.”
DICE have also confirmed that Battlefield V’s live service, Tides of War, will not be subject to any premium passes or paywalls and that all players will be able to access the same maps and modes. More information about the game will be revealed at the EA Play press conference on June 9.
Battlefield V is scheduled to be released on Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and Origin for PC on October 19. Watch the reveal trailer below.
