Battlefield 5 Single Player Trailer Shows the Untold Stories of WW2
DICE and EA have dropped a Battlefield 5 single player trailer this morning showcasing what’s planned within the game’s War Stories mode. Each telling a unique experience set within the harrowing times of World War 2.
You don’t really get a good sense of the narrative within today’s Battlefield 5 single player trailer. It’s mostly just a hodgepodge of intense chaos. Instead, we’re offering quick glances at the various role players that we’ll be getting to know much better in November (and beyond). As well as the situations in which they’ve found themselves.
DICE says that within War Stories we’ll “resist German occupation in Norway” in their Nordlys story. “Sabotage behind enemy lines as an unlikely English soldier” within Under No Flag. And we’ll “fight for a home you’ve never seen in Tirailleur.” They also tease the content coming in December. Entitled The Last Tiger, this story sees “the crew of a Tiger I as they question why they fight.”
In addition to the War Stories that we’re seeing in the Battlefield 5 single player trailer, DICE has also cooked up several other modes for our enjoying within their upcoming game. On the multiplayer slate is the ongoing campaign mode dubbed Tides of War. There’s also Firestorm and a upgrade to Battlefield 1‘s Operations offering in Grand Operations.
The aforementioned Firestorm is highly anticipated, of course. It’s Battlefield’s first attempt at a Battle Royale mode. The feature is being developed outside of DICE at Criterion Games and is said to sport the biggest map for the franchise to date. It’ll host 64 players spread across 16 different 4 man squads. Firestorm has designed teamwork as a focal point of the mode.
Not since Battlefield 3 has there been a cooperative offering, but that’s changed with the inclusion of Combined Arms. The co-op mode will feature four players pushing through a dynamic mission system that ensures no two missions play out the same.
Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 just released last week, so Battlefield 5 will have a bit of an uphill battle ahead of it. We’ll see how it fares when it launches for PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4 on November 20th.
