Battlefield V is going back to World War II; bringing back co-op

It is the most intense war simulation game we have ever seen and if you have any doubts about its quality, rest assured EA DICE has done an exceptional job here.

An EA representative confirmed to IGN following the reveal of Battlefield V that the action seen in the trailer was "all in-engine footage and representative of things you can do in the game".

You may have noticed that DICE did not mention battle royale at all during the Battlefield 5 reveal stream last night, not even as a joke.

The company explains that Battlefield 5 will be set in the lesser known regions during the second World War, including Rotterdam. Host Trevor Noah took to the stage with producers Andreas Morell, Lars Gustavsson, and Ryan McCarthur from developers DICE and wasted no time in nonchalantly revealing that the game will indeed be going back to its roots and be set in World War II, as had been suspected.

Native Hawaiians have long expressed frustration with the plant since it came online in 1989; they say it is built on sacred land. However, stream of red-hot lava destroyed a former geothermal project site adjacent to the PGV grounds, civil defense said.

Which means that it is safe to pre-order Battlefield V and enjoy the bonuses that come with it. As DICE emphasized throughout the event, they want to take us on a "journey" through various "themed chapters" and "key moments" of World War II - all of us, together. "By combining our talented development team with NVIDIA's advanced gaming technologies and robust GeForce PC gaming platform, we're creating the most physical, immersive, and visually-striking way to experience Battlefield V".

Battlefield 5 will be available for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. This is something that we saw DICE begin to experiment with in Battlefield 1, eventually putting premium DLC maps on a rotating schedule for non season-pass owners.
