The game is due out for PS4, Xbox One, and PC October 11.
You can hear the repeated shouts of "get back" from a frantic soldier, as the camera pans away to showcase a deadly ring of fire closing in on a small estate. One apparent confirmation: tanks.
A new trailer for Battlefield has dropped just in time for Gamescom, and the hype has been dialed up to 11. And boy, did they. We could be looking at the start of EA's big awareness and marketing push for Battlefield 5, which hasn't really been present thus far. Planned for gamescom 2018, the video is called Devastation of Rotterdam, obviously pointing to the Luftwaffe bombing blitz on Rotterdam during the war in 1940.
From there, we see hints of cutscenes and aerial combat, and even more examples of the range of real-world color DICE is putting into Battlefield V as the locations change from snowy mountains to a sunflower field. With the success both BR titles Fortnite and PUBG have had over the past year or so, is it any wonder AAA titles will be trying to follow suit?
Yesterday, it emerged via a market report that the pre-order figures for Battlefield 5 have fallen short of other Holiday releases such as Red Dead Redemption 2, and Black Ops 4 (which of course, features it's own battle royale game mode).
This is the game's first trailer since the brief E3 2018 teasers. Was it any good? Would you like a Battlefield battle royale?
