A War Between Wars
Battlefield V has been exactly what we’ve all been waiting for. Battlefield 1 has been an excellent game with its own unique twists and exciting gameplay. However, stepping back and looking at things from a larger point of view, it almost seems like DICE had something up their sleeve the whole time.
Battlefield 1 was a bold move, but a right one. In the wake of an endless onslaught of modern and post-modern shooters, both DICE and Activision decided to roll back the hand of time with their most recent shooters, Battlefield 1 and Call of Duty: World War 2, respectively.
These “boots on the ground” shooters were a breath of fresh air for most shooter fans. The excessive use of aerobatics and jumping dozens of feet made the games lose their sense of authenticity. The shooters set in wars of past changed this up.
Activision already set their game in World War 2, while DICE decided to take the dial back even further, releasing their latest title in World War 1.
Let It All Out
DICE seems to have had an impressive strategy this whole time. Because they haven’t made a shooter set in the past in a long time, Battlefield 1 was their chance to iron out the kinks. This isn’t to say it was a bad game by any means. They now have their artists, developers, and management honed in on old-style shooters and are ready to deliver a serious punch with Battlefield V.
For Battlefield V we expect to see:
- better graphics
- a campaign set in World War 2 ( or a battle royale)
- an improved Frostbite engine
- fewer bugs on release
- more customization
- better technology (Tiger tanks!!!)
We can’t wait to see what’s in store for Battlefield V. If you haven’t seen the trailer, take a look.
