Following the reveal of Battlefield V, fans have been eager to know. In particular, whether Battlefield V would have any ties to the original BF1942, which was itself set during World War 2.
While the bulk of Battlefield V is focused on the untold stories and lesser-known locations of the WW2, it sounds as if some of the most beloved maps from Battlefield 1942 could be set to make a return.
Over on Twitter, Grøndal was asked by a fan “what are the chances of seeing Omaha Beach and El-Alamein from BF1942?”, to which he not-so-cryptically replied: “Considering my fav BF game is 1942. I´ll leave it at that.”
I know an endless stream of remade Battlefield 1942 maps probably isn’t what everybody wants, it would be awesome to get some of the better maps remade for a new audience. BF1942 had some of the strongest and most unique map designs in the history of the Battlefield series, and it’s enticing to know they may be making a comeback.
In other news, those feeling threatened by the presence of a female on the front cover of Battlefield V can actually get a grizzled man, testicles and all, gracing the cover of their game for an extra $20. The Battlefield V Deluxe Edition comes with an exclusive set of five paratrooper outfits, Special Assignments for the British Air Service and German Fallschirmjäger troops, 20 weekly ‘Airlifts’ containing cosmetic items, and a man on the cover. Now everyone’s happy.
Battlefield V is out on October 19th for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
