A few days ago, we reported on a story that DICE’s next Battlefield game could be a follow-up to its Bad Company series which would be a welcome return for the sub-franchise. Today however, some new details have emerged, suggesting that DICE’s unnamed Battlefield WWII game will take a much different approach.
A new video, which you can see above, has appeared online, posted by a YouTuber named Drakesen. In it, he provides the first details on what we could expect from the WWII project, which Newsweek has summarized below.

  • Factions: There are seven factions including Great Britain, the United States, Free French, Third Reich, Kingdom Of Italy, USSR and Imperial Japan.
  • Maps: The retail game will launch with 10 maps with one free map arriving shortly thereafter.

  • DLC: Will work through a Premium Pass like always. Subject of DLC has not been decided.
0COMMENTS
  • Combat: Skill plays a bigger role with the removal of random bullet deviation found in Battlefield 1.

  • Attachments: They return for Battlefield V. Options include suppressors, sights, scopes and more.
  • Four Classes: Assault (a medic with AR weapons), Support (LMGs, ammo access), Recon (Bolt actions for long range) and Engineer (SMGs, anti-tank weapons).
  • All-Kit Weapons: Some weapons will work for all classes like the M1 Garand.

  • Elite Classes & Behemoths Return
  • Customization: Cosmetic skins make their debut. They offer different combinations of headwear, footwear and camo. Skins will be sold as a cosmetic microtransaction.
  • Vehicles: Vehicles will function similar to Battlefield 3 and Battlefield 4. They require skillful operation and include tanks, Jeeps, planes and more. Like soldiers, vehicles can also be customized with cosmetics.

  • Modes: Operations return and Incursions will be available at launch
  • Release Details: The game will be revealed in May with a beta in August and release in October.
Some of these features would be welcome, including the return of Elite Classes and Behemoths, as well as various classes, vehicles and much more.
But you’ll want to take all of this with a grain of salt. First of all, Drakesen’s video is not very popular to say the least, as it has nearly as many dislikes as it has likes.
Secondly, EA hasn’t officially said a word about what’s happening next in the world of Battlefield. News could drop with an early reveal this month, in an effort to build up excitement for its EA Play event prior to E3. But more than likely, we’ll see the reveal at that event, confirming whether we’ll be seeing Battlefield V, Battlefield WWII or Bad Company 3.
Whatever it is, EA has something huge planned, and considering DICE’s record in games over the past few years, it’s sure to be innovative and fun.
The next Battlefield game will reportedly release later this year for Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and Origin PC.

Well lets see....
RBD gone +1
Attachments +2
BF3/4 Style Vehicles +3
Character customization... meh
No news on Player server support and who will host it... - eleventy billion

Yep still firmly on the no preorder and no premium purchase spectrum. They are being exceedingly tight lipped on this just like with BF1, even moreso. I would HOPE they learned their lesson with BF1s abysmal server support and not developing the server component concurrently but I somehow doubt it.

Still No hope for a new A+++ Game! If EA wants to increase revenue, give us want we want.... i.e. a proper Hardcore Mode, Dedicated Servers that we can control the way WE WANT! The BF Community are investors, why did we not get a chance to listen to the call?

I don't see any chance of that happening. Third party servers are a thing of the past. As long as it's not P2P I'm fine with it.

I would say that EA hosted servers would be fine IF and only IF they learn from the previous debacle.
  • Granular control of the game settings within the in game menu.
  • KNOWLEDGEABLE 24/7 support and not some drone who answers a phone during business hrs only.
  • A WORKING server browser.
  • Presets for HC, Official and Classic game modes that don't hide the servers.
You probably won't see PROCON make a return as the guy who developed it works for EA now. HUGE conflict of interest That said since he does work for them the knowledge and skill set are there they just didn't make use of them. I would like to think that they know how badly they screwed the pooch with the last servers. Whether of not they actually care is a whole other story.

Well EA would not let DICE improve RSP so I am not hopeful.

Again, I am not buying the game unless EA is more forth coming than they were with BF1.
EA killed off community play not just for us but for all the communities. I have spoken with quite a few PC leaders. Do not expect a large number of PC players on the next battlefield.
