Battlefield V is an upcoming first-person shooter set in World War II. The game features single-player campaign scenarios similar to Battlefield 1. For example, one of the main missions focuses on a female solider, her history, and her family. The developer said that Battlefield V tells the "untold stories of World War II", but it's unclear if they're works of fiction or interactive reenactments.
Today, the publisher released a new trailer showing off the maps. According to EA, "you'll fight through the unexplored settings of World War II on maps that will challenge your squad in epic multiplayer experiences." The video teaches you about the strategies necessary to succeed in these new arenas set on the battlefields of France, Holland, Norway, and North Africa.
Unlike Battlefield 1, it seems like the focus here is to merge all forms of gameplay — on-foot, vehicular, and aerial — into every map. There seems to be a lot of environmental variety too. Hopefully snipers won't run amok in this iteration of the game.
Battlefield V was supposed to launch earlier this year, but was delayed to November 20, 2018 a few weeks ago. Hopefully the game will be a polished experience next month. The beta test was quite rough around the edges, especially when it came to performance on Xbox One. Even the Xbox One X performance wasn't that great.
