Battlefield V

Release date: 19th October 2018

The fans have asked and EA have answered – a new Battlefield game set during World War 2, the last being Battlefield Heroes and Battlefield 1943 back in 2009. But if you’re anything like me Battlefield 1942 released way back in 2002 was your favourite, so many valuable hours spent on Wake Island!

EA just revealed that you’ll be able to move stationary weapons around the battlefield by attaching them to your tank.

They also just confirmed that there will be no loot boxes or premium pass in Battlefield V, along with a fresh Royale mode, similar to games such as PUBG and Fortnite.

We’ve also taken a first look at War Stories, further details on this to follow at Microsofts Press Briefing.

A futuristic action adventure game is always hard to ignore and Anthem looks like it could potentially be up there with some of EA’s best yet.

A new indie title from a small Berlin-based studio Jo-Mei games that has joined up with EA for a new EA Original title ‘Sea of Solitude’, or ‘SoS’ for short. comes on the back of the success of the co-op adventure ‘A Way Out’, which released earlier this year.
