After Activision shocked the world with the news that Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 will feature guns, zombies, and multiplayer, it's DICE's turn to step up to the plate. Battlefield V is being revealed to the world today. We know the name, we know it's probably set during World War 2, but we know absolutely nothing else.

The Battlefield 5 teaser trailer revealed earlier this week hinted at a WW2 setting, although DICE has said we can expect Battlefield V to take us to an entirely new theatre of war as well, possibly referring to an oft-overlooked battle during World War 2. A single-player campaign has been confirmed for BFV, as well as all-new multiplayer modes that will span multiple game types and maps.

All the glorious details of what Battlefield V is going to be will be revealed at 1 PM PDT/4 PM EDT/9PM BST/10 PM CEST today.

Battlefield V is due out later in 2018 for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

Lol, you are on a mission today.


I think the main issue is some people are struggling to differentiate between realism and authenticity. Practically nothing about Battlefield is realistic, like, at all, but DICE does strive for authenticity. That's how we're seeing women in the game, because they're trying to show under-represented yet authentic aspects of the war, all without adhering to realism.

Not sure what the first part of that is a reference to, but yea the last part is brilliant. Resistance fighters were always equipped with the latest and greatest weaponry. Wonder why they were on the loosing side at this moment, though. Wonder why this section of the game is showing 'The Fall of Europe'.

It was referencing natural movement of her arm. She could grab things with it. For second part, they couldn't find decent clothing but they somehow got their hands on tanks, planes and missiles. What a resistance. If only they made Battlefield Mad Max edition instead of a WW2 game everything would have been fine.

@Miha - That's only because of your modern connotation of social justice as a toxic term because you're angry that your precious games occasionally tackle political or societal issues, when the term has been anything but toxic in the last 200 years. It's merely the idea of being fair, which doesn't really have negative connotations beyond those who were on a higher perch through societal constructs being knocked off their perch and hating considering themselves equals to people or ideas they dislike or disagree with. People aren't inherently better than other people because of gender, race, religion, or politics, they become better through their actions, not through hate.


Which is a roundabout way of saying - you don't need to feel threatened because women are seen as men's equal in Battlefield V.

It is toxic because people try to bend reality to not offend pro-SJW people. In 1940s people were racist and sexist. You can't change this fact just because people in modern day aren't and they would find racism and sexism wrong. Toxic part is, when you say that they are wrong, you are instantly labelled as anti-something.

Who's talking about the 1940's? We're in 2018 last I checked. The whole point is that the progress of social justice has led us from an overtly racist era to now, which is mainly just being racist online behind a pseudonym. I am totally for a game set in the 1940's, 2010's, whatever, featuring the reality of racism, no problem there whatsoever.


My entire point is that equality is a good thing, but if you think women aren't the equal of men as beings then yes, you'd be sexist. Not really any other way to look at it. I'm still just absolutely fascinated why someone would have an issue with a woman being in Battlefield V. Not only were women in WW2, but this is a series that has so always been so far removed from realism that it's hilarious people would call out one specific thing as unrealistic. Imagine getting annoyed there's a woman in BF5 because 'realism' but not having a problem with being able to instantly respawn on a squadmate. HAH. Says a lot.

So unless you met all the women that fought in WW2, you can't say whether anyone did or didn't use a hook hand. Or 'celtic' paint. Those are minute details that you only pick on when you need something to moan about.

Norwegian resistance fighters. I really,really hope you're joking here. If you already want your game to be about resistance movements then head over to the Balkans where Serbian Chetniks and Partisans gave Germans hell from 1941 all the way to 1944,when Yugoslavia was liberated. Plus,there was later a civil war between these two,making things even more interesting. The first liberated city in occupied Europe was Loznica in 1941.

The purpose of the game is to bring stories that haven't been told, not WW2's greatest hits.

@Thecookiemonster I didn't say they didn't exist.

And even if you really want to include them,you should be including most successful or most interesting ones,like French resistance or Chetnik and Partisan resistance. No offense to Norwegian resistance,but they were neither of the two

Jon, i meant they are trying to bend the history. I would be fine with that game if they said "Hey, we made a cartoonish alt-reality game based on WW2 like the Battlefield Heroes.". Instead they act like their game is inspired from things that have happened in real life. Also, we aren't arguing about giving women equal rights in here. Women have equal rights, since second half of 20th century. But it wasn't always the case. Look at Ubisoft's For Honor for example, warriors from different periods and different places fight. I am fine with that because they didn't claim it was historical. If it was taking place in 100 Years War they couldn't put samurai in it. DICE on the other hand made a fantasy story in a fantasy war and claimed it is what happened in WW2.

Also, women isn't the only problem. Lets take a look on the other soldiers for example, they look like members of a biker gang more then soldiers or even resistance. Also there is graphiti on tanks and back of their jackets. It is obvious that this game doesn't take itself seriously. BFBC was also an alt-reality game, thats why not being serious worked in BC.

Yeah I get you, but Battlefield has basically never once been about realism. Ever. It's a cartoon war, always has been. I personally think that what I saw in the trailer looks dumb, but I'm just not taking any umbrage with a women being in it because the rights and wrongs are so inconsequential when you consider how much else isn't realistic. The Battlefield games have always been completely dumb carnage, that's why they've been fun. I just think that as graphics have got better, people have expected this to go hand-in-hand with realism, which is not what it's about at all.


If people want a realistic WW2 game, or any war game for that matter, they should be looking elsewhere than the Battlefield series.

I really hope that this next battlefield game is better CPU optimised then the last game because Battlefield 1 was a killer on CPU's bringing even Intel core i7's to there knees with high CPU usage on all cores. A bit of a shame considering the go to CPU for gaming these days is an Intel core I5.

actually its very good optimization considering bf1 managed to utilize more than 8 threads. For multiplayer yes its demanding, but not because lack of optimization but requirement to run such a huge map with lots of players running around, blowing stuff up. From here its going to be more and more taxing on cpu thats what we call evolution.

You want your game to utilise 100% GPU but not max out the CPU because that would lead to a bottleneck. While BF1 was more graphics intensive then BF4, it still had the exact same 64 player game modes, so it shouldn't be more CPU intensive. Remember the average gaming CPU is an intel core I5 so you want your game to perform well on that.

That's not how a bottleneck works, bud. High usage does not determine poor performance or optimization. Some games can use more CPU than GPU, vice versa, it's just how some games function. Both the GPU and CPU can be 100% and still not be a bottleneck, percentages don't always define a bottleneck, you'll want to observe performance for instability. High usage only means that the game requires x amount of resource to maintain stability, if said usage was showing unstable performance then yes there would be a bottleneck. Remember, some games use more CPU than GPU it's just how some games are designed which honestly, one could call that a poorly optimized game because it isn't using the resources proficiently, but like I said, performance is the best way to dictate a bottleneck.

Yes, you're actually correct, I'm sorry about that my mistake I looked it up and you're right. Just for clarification though, how much of a difference are we talking about here? Like CPU: 100% & GPU: 80%, because that wouldn't really be considered a huge bottleneck, whereas something along CPU: 100% & GPU: 20% then that would be a very serious bottleneck.

So we can pretty much say that FPS genre is dead. It is just FPS-MOBA/FPS-MMO hybrids, eSports shooters or Battle Royale style games. Some people hated transition from arena shooters to modern shooters, but you know what? Modern shooters was what got me into FPS genre, otherwise i would have been a RTS, RPG player only. Rip modern shooter period (Half Life - Battlefield 1).
Note: I don't mean modern setting when i say modern. You know how games like Half Life, Medal of Honor AA, Battlefield 1942, Call of Duty 1, Halo changed the FPS genre. Then some other games like Overwatch, PUBG, Fortnite, Destiny etc. came and ruined it all.

PUBG and fortnite aren't even fps , they are third person games.


The fps that u like still exists in campaigns in thses games, it's just that the community loves multiplayer features more , and the devs find that better too as they can constantly update it to ensure that players keep playing it, whereas the campaign will always get left after a while.


So basically nowadays the focus has shifted to a constant stream of income, hence the shift in focus from single player to multiplayer.


Hopefully like fortnite, some new fps game with single player focussed comes and becomes an absolute smash hit, that should fix things

I like that you can throw grenades back (hopefully that wasn't just an animation they did for that trailer). I really wish the engineer class could return..I know it probably won't, since it's been supplanted by support/assault. It's just that I remember playing the original BF1942 and I played engineer all the time. I was great with the standard issue bolt-action rifle, I repaired vehicles, and I mined the hell out of choke points.

Every time they try to make changes to freshen up the game people complain, every time they make a similar to the previous game(BO1 to MW2, IW to BO3, WaW to CoD4), people complain... -_-
