Battlefield V First Trailer Revealed - Focuses on Unseen Locations and Untold Stories of WW2

Battlefield V was officially revealed yesterday evening, following a long, and ever-so-slightly tedious roundtable discussion from the developers. Just as suspected. Battlefield V is set during World War 2 for the first time since Battlefield 1943, with DICE’s priority being to tackle the often overlooked battlefronts of World War 2, including Rotterdam, Norway, and the North African desert.

“We've all been through the beaches of Normandy,” said senior producer Andreas Morell. “We've been there, we know what it's about. We wanted to deliver an unexpected take on the second World War, to portray the era through unseen locations and untold stories.”

Big changes to BFV include a Grand Operations mode which folds in multiple modes and maps split across several days. Each match lasts a day and provides unique objectives such a parachuting behind enemy lines from a cargo plane in order to destroy artillery points. Depending on how successful the attacking team is in its mission, this will affect the map layout, vehicles, and total tickets available the next day.

All squad members can now revive one another, while a new third-person death camera allows players to judge whether it’s safe to respawn on a squad mate. Players can go prone on their backs; support players can construct or repair key fortifications at objectives points, and Combined Arms is a new 4-player co-op mode that provides procedurally generated missions for endless play.

In a nod to older Battlefield games, players won’t spawn with full ammo and can resupply from crates at objective zones which can be built using a fortification toolkit, or can be resupplied the usual way from Support teammates,

Anyway, enough of that, here’s the world’s first trailer for Battlefield V:

I’ve long thought of DICE as being the champions of the exciting reveal trailer, but this Battlefield 5 reveal isn’t doing a great deal for me. There’s an increasingly blurry line between a gameplay trailer and deceit, and overlaying a multiplayer UI onto a scene that evidently isn’t from actual gameplay is leaning towards the latter. Battlefield 5 will probably look as good, or almost as good, as this trailer, but it’s certainly not representative of gameplay. Thankfully, we’ll see a full gameplay reveal during EA’s pre-E3 play event in about a fortnight’s time.

As well as the trailer, we also got confirmation that Battlefield V will launch on October 19th, the week after Call of Duty: Black Ops. Snapping up the Deluxe Edition grants three days early access from October 16th, while Origin Access members can trial the game for 10 hours from October 11th.

What do you think of the BF5 reveal trailer and the direction DICE is going with it?

I can see alot of people saying things like "There were no women in WW2, aside from nurces" and yeah ok, but the first feeling i got from this trailer is that these didn't seem like the usual WW2 soldiers i've seen in... well all of the WW2 games i played, im no historical expert, but what im trying to say is: Can we let them explain this before we through stuff, since then we'll have all the more reason to... or not to. It depends.

"The trailer was impressive in terms of how cinematic and polished it was, but I don't think it represents the gameplay at all. Most people will watch that trailer and think it's just a flashier version of BF1. In reality there's a tonne more depth and the pace is way slower."

I think they should at least show more of the gameplay because I believe this trailer is misleading.


The likes and Dislikes show how the trailer is taken by fans, They should be more clear on the game ASAP.

Okay i see a lot of people is debating the "bionic" arm... listen... it's just a replacement for a real arm... if you look you can see that the claws doesn't actually move and that she only uses it to hold up the gun so she can aim... she didn't even use it for the bat... it's a artificial arm/hand and nothing more then that... like a Level 2 Pirate hook if you must

I was one of the most anti WW1 people in this sub before BF1 came. I thought it would be boring and repetitive. My mind changed the moment i saw its trailer. To this day, i think BF1 is the best BF game since BF3. Trust me, if they actually made a good WW2 game even people who want a modern game would like it. Because what makes a game good isn't setting, it is how you approach it.

Now lets say there is a game where ISIS are the bad guys. What would you think if half of ISIS militants were German homosexual adult movie actors? It would be realistic, there are some ISIS militants like that. But i bet majority were Arabic guys with a huge beard who wear black.

Firstly, I'd think America and Israel would be very offended by that game. ISIS couldn't possibly be bad. But since it's a game, we can look past that. Kudos for the analogy though.


You're probably correct about the majority theory, but this game isn't about that. It's about telling stories that haven't been told. People seem to forget this.


Maybe all of those things weren't there together. But that's where they're drawing from creativity more than historical accuracy. If they made the same uniforms in all their games for accuracy, they'd be criticized for not being creative. You can't have it both ways.
Plus, the look, is a multiplayer feature - people like to pay to get new skins etc. Remember Pink Darth Vader ?

Please use a search engine. They were invented well before WW2.


Women shown here are resistance fighters. In a war, if you're losing, you don't look at what you're allowed to or not allowed to do. You pick up whatever you can and put up a fight. As shown here.

Computers were invented 80 years ago but you could never use them for what we do now. Not even today with all the advancements of prosthetics, people using them could't fight in a war, especially not back then.
But then again, these games don't aim to be realistic. Most realistic they get is using the time period they're set in.

@Panther287 - The British flags doesn't mean the British were being conquered. This is most probably somewhere in Norway which was conquered. The British were there battling the Germans. Don't you think if the British are there, they might have British flags ?


Churchill tanks were also used on the Eastern front.

Possibly. Although USSR did have a few and I don't know enough history to know whether they were or not.
But I'm thinking, if I'm making a game, with a certain degree of historical accuracy, but not completely a historical war simulator, why not include them. That's where they've used creativity in place of accuracy. I don't mind. Maybe that's from the final battle to push the Germans out of Norway.

I don't care either. But the thing here is that they aim to tell untold stories, and if you change those stories then which ones are you actually telling people?
Battlefield was never historically accurate game, my problem with it is that it's developers try to push it as it were.

Another WW2 game, as if there weren't enough of FPS's done about it. There's nothing new to be made in WW2. We've seen the guns, we've seen the good guys and the bad guys, the only thing that changes is the location and that doesn't amount for much.
I don't understand why people have such aversion to future warfare as depicted in games.

Imagine a BF game which is set on a different planet with some other dominant species which aren't humans. You have an almost completely blank slate to create something amazing while still keeping to the core of what makes BF games amazing, 32 on 32 player combined warfare.
But rehashing old is easy and making new is risky, something that's on completely opposite sides of the spectrum for AAA's.
