The fire slowly moving in towards the end of the trailer is a clear nod to the mode in which EA and Activision have teased, but have played close to the vest. The trailer also ends with a brief glimpse into the game's battle royale mode, because every shooter from now until the end of time has to have a battle royale mode.
EA and Dice made their intentions clear of including a Battle Royale mode during the game's reveal so it isn't a huge surprise that we see a tease for it here.
Battlefield V will see the return of War Stories, the short, self-contained vignettes that will focus on World War II this time around. Players' soldiers can now tow stationary weapons, build fortifications and fix war-torn structures to turn the battlefield to the player's advantage. There was just the slight problem of this video not actually containing any real gameplay from the game's multiplayer and instead showed off snippets of its campaign. Plus, there's a new co-op mode called Combined Arms where you and up to three other friends team up to take on missions with an AI mission director controlling the difficulty based on your performance.
In contrast, The upcoming Call of Duty Black Ops 4 has dropped the single player campaign entirely. Then, in June, EA announced that this year's "Battlefield V" also will.
It's unclear how long-time fans of the "Battlefield" franchise will react to the new mode.
Battlefield 5 releases October 19 for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
