DICE has dropped the Devastation of Rotterdam trailer for Battlefield V. After a fairly abject reveal, this is DICE back with a bang. Rotterdam in the Netherlands forms the bulk of the early portion of the trailer, showing Allied forces taken on the occupied Axis troops.

I’m no history expert but to the best of my knowledge, I don’t believe British troops actually had a major presence in Rotterdam during WW2. In fact, Britain spent most of 1940 blitzing the city from the skies due to its German occupation. As Battlefield V is only launching with British and German troops though, we have to presume this British troops fighting on the streets of Rotterdam.

Anyway, we can’t let that get in the one of seriously bombastic action. It looks as if environmental destruction could play a bigger part than it did in Battlefield 1, although we’re still based if off this pseudo-multiplayer gameplay footage that could well be from the single-player campaign.

“Throughout the trailer, the game’s dynamic physicality and destruction is on full display,” says EA. “As the architecture crumbles and gives way, torn by the devastation of close quarters combat, truly no battle in Battlefield V will ever be the same.”

And tucked in during the last 30 seconds? A teaser for Battlefield V’s Battle Royale mode of course. Now, I know there are plenty of Battle Royale detractors out there but that is one sick-ass teaser clip. We can see the storm has been replacing by a shrinking ring of fire that destroys everything in its path. Players are then pushed together for one final stand right at the end. In typical Battlefield style, vehicles such as tanks are driveable in the Battle Royale mode, which could be one heck of an advantage during the closing moments.

Now that’s how you do a trailer. Perhaps DICE may have been better off revealing this particular trailer during that pre-E3 reveal. Could this trailer be enough to resurrect those alleged weak pre-order numbers?

Battlefield V is due to launch on October 19th for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

I don't care about women in the game, neither for history accuracy. I just want the game to be good and fun.

They showed us a lot of new stuff that they haven't so far. I'm sure we'll see more of what you are asking at some point.

Just to clear things up, i played every single bf from 1942 to BF4. bf4 was the last i played, that was just on the edge of fun. go for ro2/rs rs2 , new insurgency , tarkov instead. Btw, Post Scriptum any good or what?

I mean, since they wanted to set the game so much in places like Norway and holland, you would jabe thought they'd have the hindsight to make more troop models than just Nazi and British...

Still not for it. Still basically looks like a redone BF1 game. Going to pass this year.

Looks ain't everything, the gunplay for example is completly different and makes it feel really different

I agree, the game definitely feels better and different from BF1 which imo is like the adopted child of BF series.

For me - someone who's looking for a slower, more in-depth, story-based game about a World War - Yep.
For the general Battlefield crowd - stupidly fast paced chaos destruction, unrealistic arcadey action - it looks pretty good. Some more detailed animations for characters. Lots of candy.

Whenever a V1 is coming or goes off, it just sounds amazing in-game.

It's a game trailer what do you expect, they ruin every song with a ****e cover version lol (but every version of house of the rising sun is in fact a cover of sorts)

Was thinking the same, they already murdered Seven Nation Army and now this (I know they didn't remix it, but they popularize it)
Would have prefered some strong epic orchestra soundtrack or even the classic BF theme.

Composer here, covering songs for trailers has been the trend for the last year or so. We all hope that it just goes away.

I say with no doubt that the game feels much better and plays differently from BF1 (BF1 felt very different from previous games). To me it feels like BF4/3 and a few people in-game have said it reminded them of Bad Company 2 gunplay-wise.

I was definitely doubting the game with that reveal trailer, terrible choice. After actually playing in both alphas, I enjoy the game a lot more than I thought I would. Will it be for everyone? Obviously not, but to each their own.
