Stunning visuals, destructible environments, and all around carnage.
Yesterday, EA and DICE released a short teaser for a full-fledged Gamescom trailer for the upcoming Battlefield V (yes, we live in times where trailers announcing trailers have become a common thing), and that video has now dropped. And it looks stunning, to say the least.
Stunning visuals are, of course, something we’ve come to expect from Battlefield games (or really, anything DICE makes in general), and Battlefield 5 looks suitably breathtaking in this new trailer, titled “Devastation of Rotterdam”. There’s plenty of carnage in here, from environmental destruction being shown off in all its glory, to vehicular combat on the ground and in the air, to good old regular infantry combat. And, of course, EXPLOSIONS.
It looks pretty intense. You’ll also note, interestingly enough, a tease of the game’s battle royale mode right at the end of the trailer, with the ring of fire closing in. Take a look below if you’re interested in the game.
Battlefield V launches on October 19 for the Xbox One, PS4, and PC. Though you’d expect a game as massive as this to do well regardless of any other circumstances, it seems like that might not be the case. Analysts believe that it will be outperformed in the Holiday season by the likes of Call of Duty: Black Ops 4, Fallout 76, and Red Dead Redemption 2. On top of that, other reports are also suggesting that Battlefield V’s pre-order performances have been weaker than expected.
