In the lead-up to E3, we’re counting down with our most anticipated titles. You can find out when all the press conferences are taking place in Australian/NZ times HERE.
It’s already attracting plenty of attention – for good and for bad – but Battlefield V is still due for a full reveal during EA’s 2018 E3 conference. Much like Battlefield 1 and Battlefront II before it, we’ll likely see substantial multiplayer gameplay showing off the new mechanics in the sixteenth instalment of the franchise.
A returning World War II setting, more War Stories, added modes and reimagined systems may go a long way to win over fans old and new, but DICE and EA’s response to the microtransaction controversy ought to be praised the most. Battlefield V will not have a Premium Pass or any loot boxes. Microtransactions won’t include anything that affects gameplay with a focus on cosmetic items allowing you to customise the appearance of your character, weapons and vehicles.
