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.

Cancelled my preorder after that horrible Beta. Another beta is said to be released sometime before the 20th. I'll give it another play through and decide at that time. But as for now, it's a no. Besides, RDR2 is such an amazing game that I may not even miss BFV.
You must have played a different beta than me... ran amazing and the game felt so much better that BF1, felt closer to BF4 which was the best. Actually upgraded my pre-order after the beta. Besides, RDR2 is such a boring single person game with little replayability, I'll be done with it before BFV releases.
As the video clearly shows, this game will have beautiful graphics and powerful audio. With that said, for me, Battlefield has become stale, just like Call of Duty did many years ago. To those who intend to purchase this: I hope you have fun, but this franchise's glory days (though maybe not its best sales numbers) are behind it.
Love Battlefield games, though never found that snipers ran amok, always seemed like a great balance. Particularly as you see where they were when they shot you. The best Battlefield games are when you work as a team and play for the objectives. I left Battlefield 1 for around 8 months, due to other commitments, but got back into it recently. A great game. Where EA slip up is the menus and UI, I used to find them quite tedious. Same with Forza, I used to enjoy the game, but the UI, particularly for seeing friends designs, was poor. I'm stoked for Battlefield V, gonna love it. Not sure why reviewers keep mentioning the female bit, a really silly non-issue. In Fortnite, most use male and female characters interchangably. Doesn't seem to be a real issue, just faux outrage. I also liked Battlefield campaigns, usually well put together and polished.
