If you’re a fan of the Battlefield series then now is the time to get hyped. Today, at a studio in London, developer EA DICE and comedian Trevor Noah unveiled the first details about the next entry in the series, which is set to be titled Battlefield V.
As the rumors suggested, the title takes place during WWII and features the return of War Stories, which are a set of loosely connected, anthology missions about different characters during the war. In addition to that, the game will also include a brand new mode called Combined Arms, which is Battlefield V’s new co-op mode.
One of the most significant announcements of the day, however, was the reveal that all of the game’s post-launch content will be available to all players completely free of additional charge, which EA says is an attempt to keep all players unified throughout the game’s lifecycle. This new DLC will come in the form of brand new, in-game events.
Battlefield V will be available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Windows PC, and is set to launch on October 19, 2018, however, players who pre-order the Digital Deluxe edition will be granted access to the game a few days earlier, on October 16, 2018.
