Battlefield is one of the most popular first person shooter franchises and has become a mainstay in the genre, offering a realistic and fun shooter set across various wars with destructible environments, a plethora of awesome vehicles and more. Battlefield V was the franchise’s sixteenth and latest installment, releasing almost three years ago on the Frostbite Engine. Battlefield V was set in World War II and was a thematic continuation of Battlefield I, which was set in World War I. Battlefield V received mixed reviews, with fans either praising the instalment or finding that it just didn’t scratch the Battlefield itch. Nevertheless, Dice and Electronic Arts have continued working on one of their prime IPs. With that being said, the upcoming Battlefield reveal is one of the most hyped in the franchise’s history, as gamers think that the game can be a great alternative to the current shooters in the genre, which are a bit more fast paced and arcade-themed. The folks over at Dice have officially announced that a reveal trailer for the upcoming installment will be released on 9th June 2021 at 10A.M. ET and 3PM G.M.T.
Very little information pertaining to the setting of the game has been disclosed besides two confirmed screenshots from earlier this year that showcased a map and a player in the cockpit of a fighter airplane. Many fans have theorized that the game is set in modern times, akin to Battlefield 3 and Battlefield 4, meaning that it is moving away from the days of previous World Wars as in Battlefield V and Battlefield I. Furthermore, fans are very excited to see the potential Battle Royale mode that would be introduced in this iteration as they expect a strong competitor to Call of Duty: Warzone that can provide a much more realistic and strategic element to the genre.
If fans are interested in playing Battlefield, Amazon Prime members can now claim Battlefield 4 for free from 1st June to 20th June.
