Like Call of Duty, the Battlefield series prides itself as one of the stalwarts of the first-person shooter genre. Like its rivals, the series had its start in World War II. Now, after a long tenure in a modern-day setting, Battlefield is finally coming back to its roots.
Battlefield V brings its special flavor of single-player and multiplayer action to the trenches of the Second World War. Much like its predecessor, Battlefield V’s War Stories mode happens across multiple theaters.
Currently, DICE has not revealed its complete lineup of stories yet. However, a teaser trailer depicts a Norwegian boy named Nordlys as he tries to reunite with his family while joining the Norwegian army.
As for multiplayer, Battlefield V will sport a new battle royale mode. Together with Call of Duty, Battlefield V is one of the first AAA games to venture out into the battle royale genre.
Bookended by popular shooters PUBG and Fortnite, the battle royale genre has enjoyed multiple entries and exits by contenders who want a piece of the action. DICE’s latest efforts will realize the vision of a BR game with AAA assets.
Despite the reveal, DICE has not unveiled details about this mode yet. However, they promise that it will have vehicles and team plays. Likewise, they promise that this title will not have play-to-win loot boxes, which was a huge controversy for EA with Star Wars Battlefront II.
Battlefield V will launch worldwide on October 19. However, the game will open earlier for Deluxe Edition pre-orders and EA Access members.
The best of Xbox at E3 2018
Microsoft didn’t hold back!
50 games, 18 exclusives, 15 world premieres. There were a lot of games at the Xbox E3 2018 briefing and we rounded up our favorites just for you:
Microsoft’s most iconic title Halo is getting a sequel and it looks amazing. It’s called Infinite and while it’s more of a tease than an actual game, there’s a lot to be excited about including what looks like a new world.
Kingdom Hearts III
Sora is back and he’s ready to explore new worlds… including Arendale. Yeah, you heard it right: This encounter with Elsa got us real excited. At E3, we got a chance to take the game for a spin, and now we’re craving for more.
Fallout 76 is a prequel to the Fallout series and based on the trailer, it looks like it will ask players to reclaim the wasteland for America.
This is the franchise’s first attempt at multiplayer gameplay. Players battle against hostile raiders, mutants, and all kinds of monstrosities. They’re encouraged to team up, scavenge materials, build strongholds, and destroy other teams’ bases.
Forza Horizon 4
Because Forza Horizon 4 is set in Britain, the home to Playground Games, this was a passion project and it shows. The graphics are spectacular, but that can be expected.
What makes it so amazing are changing seasons. Each week, seasons change for everyone, and that dramatically affects gameplay. At E3, we were able to experience first hand the difference between driving in the snow and under the cover of lovely autumn leaves.
Dragon Ball Z, Naruto, Death Note. If this star-studded cast of characters doesn’t get you squealing from excitement, we don’t know what will. We only got limited hands-on time with this game, but being able to Kamehameha our way past puny rivals was enough for us wannabe gamers to wanna play more.
Devil May Cry 5
DMC fans waited 10 years for this sequel and we’re stoked to finally see a trailer come out.
As evidenced by the flashy fighting styles and kinetic movement in the trailer, DMC 5 is a stylish hack and slash game featuring demon hunters Nero and Dante. This is shaping up to be a stress-relieving game where you can take your frustrations out on demons standing in your way.
Ori and the Will of the Wisps
Ori and the Will of the Wisps is a unique platformer that mixes combat and exploration and ties it all together with rich graphics and an emotional storyline. This time around, developers worked on the physicality of the world, and it almost gives the 2D world a 3D feel to it. The game is made more challenging but also more accessible, so whether you’re a newbie or an experienced pro, you’ll want to embark on this journey.
A single-player RPG set in a dystopian future — sci-fi aficionados will have a field day in Cyberpunk 2077.
The game was initially announced in 2012, but we haven’t heard a thing about it before it popped up at Microsoft’s E3 conference.
Based on classic tabletop game Cyberpunk 2020, Cyberpunk 2077 pits V, a new hired gun, against power-hungry megacorporations and cyber-enhanced street raiders.
Resident Evil 2 Remake, The Last of Us Part II: PlayStation E3 2018 highlights
Tell us which game you’re most excited to play!
Sony’s PlayStation remains to be a force to be reckoned with in video gaming even though the Xbox arguably had the better briefing at E3 2018. While some people longed for Final Fantasy VII remake updates, gamers were treated to the announcement of a different remake: Resident Evil 2. Sony also revealed gameplay footage of previously announced titles like Marvel’s Spider-Man and Ghost of Tsushima.
Other notable titles include Death Stranding and Assassin’s Creed: Odyssey but the loudest cheers were given to a much anticipated sequel: The Last of Us Part II.
Fortnite makes its way to the Nintendo Switch
Time to get building, Switch users
To anyone who owns a Nintendo Switch, the wait is finally over. Nintendo has announced the arrival of Epic Games’ popular battle royale game Fortnite to the Switch earlier at E3 2018. Switch users can now enjoy all the intense action and fort-building on the palm of their hands. The announcement from Nintendo was a part of their already-stacked E3 presentation, featuring the arrival of Super Smash Brothers Ultimate as well.
Fortnite for the Switch features the same dose of action seen on PC and other gaming consoles. For a better gaming experience, Epic Games is giving users the option to sync data from their PC, Mac, Xbox Live, or mobile accounts. Players with significant progress into the game do not have to worry about restarting when playing on the Nintendo Switch. Also, Switch users will be able to engage in cross-play with others using such platforms.
However, Sony has blocked cross-play and account syncing of Fortnite from the PS4 to the Nintendo Switch. This means that any progress and purchases made on the PS4 cannot be used for the Switch. Sony has implemented the same rule for Xbox users who want to cross-play Fortnite between the PS4 and the Xbox One before. The block from Sony also happened for other games such as Rocket League and Minecraft.
Fortnite will be available for free on the Nintendo eShop starting today with only the battle royale game released. Epic representatives stated that there are no plans to make the paid mode Save the World available as well.
