But that does not mean that Dice has done away with any of the conventional formats and the War Stories mode that was introduced in Battlefield 1 will be making a comeback in this game, focussing on specific heroes.
Here are some high resolution screenshots from the game that reveal tantalising clues into Battlefield V's story line and game play. However, like Battlefield 1, DICE is aiming for another "reimagining" of events.
And it didn't take long for this to be confirmed in the opening moments of the reveal, as Battlefield V will actually continue chronologically from Battlefield I, and take players once more to WWII. The Company allows players to create and deeply customize their soldiers, weapons and vehicles that will evolve as they progress, covering everything from the way they look to the way they play.
For an even early hands on experience, those who attend the EA Play event during E3 2018 next month in Los Angeles will be able to try the game out.
"There will be no premium pass, all players will have access to the same maps and modes, keeping the community unified as they progress through Battlefield V".
As for any tidbits about characters or settings, we mostly have speculation.
"Tides of War is DICE's new approach to live services, where players will set out on an epic journey with their Company in unexpected battles throughout World War 2", a message from Dice explains. EA Access and Origin members will get access on October 11, a week ahead of the October 19th launch date.
The rivalry between Dice's Battlefield series and Activision's Call of Duty has been one of the most competitive in the gaming world ever and gamers seem to have enjoyed taking part in the fruit of this rivalry.
Grand Operations will make their debut within the game, a variation of Operations that promises to wrap around the World War II story.
According to GameStop, pre-ordering "Battlefield V" or "Battlefield V Deluxe Edition" grants the buyer the "Elister Offer", which gives you early access to the "Battlefield V" Open Beta.
Battlefield 5 launches worldwide on the 19th of October.
The Battlefield series is one of the biggest video game franchises on Xbox One. All the content to be added will be available for free to all players, and EA apparently have no plans to re-implement their most unpopular alternative, either.
