Battlefield 5: DICE drops the ball with a disappointing reveal event

Posted May 24, 2018

The new entry in the Battlefield series is set in World War 2 and offers a number of new features, including a four-player co-op mode called Combined Arms and a steady stream of new content after launch called The Tides of War. The game will be arriving on October 19, around the same time Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 will be launched.

The single player mode War Stories, will continue on from Battlefield 1 in V and explore new diverse regions and unique untold stories of the soldiers who fought during WWII, including a resistance group in Norway, battling against the Nazi regime and the frosty elements. According to senior producer Andreas Morrel, DICE, like many developers, is also a fan of the genre, but it's not quite ready to bring it to Battlefield.
