I’ve enjoyed a bit of Battlefield before, even if I haven’t put a lot of focus onto with articles or videos. The one time I did was with the open beta of Battlefield Hardline, where I showed off some gameplay along with writing up some impressions of that beta. I didn’t then follow that up with a review, but I still enjoyed my time with it. Most of my time was spent with Battlefield 4.
I dropped off from getting into later games as the lure of new Star Wars Battlefronts was stronger, but at some point – even with modes such as Walker Assault and Capital Supremacy being as good as they were – I still wanted some good old-fashioned conquest action. Being stuck in the chaos of all out war with no other victory condition than beating down the other team through kills and domination of the field.
I could have just jumped into either Battlefield V or 1, but the new game was already being hyped up, with the team working on new updates for Battlefront 2 being transferred to the new game over a year ago, along with Criterion. Along with that, getting started in a new game is a tough ask, as I’d found with Battlefield 4 on Xbox (having previously been playing only on PC).
So we now have a new game on the horizon, being built for the next generation, that releases on 22nd October this year. It’s a big event of a release, and the trailer and initial information certainly shows such. Massive maps with 128 player warfare, vehicles galore, and dynamic worlds that bring ever-changing conditions to the battlefield.
