EA Dice revealed details about the latest entry to the Battlefield series at a conference on May 23, 2018.

"Battlefield 5 is a homecoming for DICE as a studio-a return to the era that came to define the Battlefield franchise", said Oskar Gabrielson, General Manager, DICE. And even Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 is going to have a battle royale mode (though the developer is cagey about quite how large it'll be). However, those who pre-order the Deluxe Edition will get early access on October 16, while EA and Origin Access members can make use of the Play First Trial on October 11.

Battlefield V will support 4K resolution, HDR10, and variable refresh rate when played on the Xbox One X console and will still be completely compatible with the regular Xbox One and Xbox One S like all Xbox One-branded titles.

Battlefield V multiplayer aims to deliver the most immersive gameplay of the franchise in a sandbox environment that portrays the battles of World War 2, allowing players to feel the force of the fight and truly shape the war as the war shapes them.

64-Player Multiplayer in the Chaos of All-Out War - Lead your Company in all-out multiplayer with new experiences like the massive Grand Operations mode. Once again, the aim of this mode is to bring war into perspective with untold stories of real and relatable characters and their experiences.

There is also a new co-operative mode called Combined Arms coming to Battlefield V, which allows up to four players to tackle a wide variety of missions together online. As reports suggested, it is indeed taking us back to World War II.

The Tides of War are changing.
