Check Out Battlefield V’s Single Player Trailer (Now YouTube Is Back)

Video: YouTube is back, everything is fine, Battlefield has released a slick cinematic trailer for the single player experience in the upcoming Battlefield V. Warning: like previous trailers this one also has women in it, so you might want to stay away if that’s likely to upset you. And as always: never read the comments.

Battlefield’s single player mode involves multiple ‘War Stories’, each focusing on a different and lesser known World War 2 conflict. From EA’s description:

Discover the untold stories of World War 2 with Battlefield V’s single player War Stories. In Nordlys, resist German occupation in Norway, sabotage behind enemy lines as an unlikely English soldier in Under No Flag, fight for a home you’ve never seen in Tirailleur, and in The Last Tiger (available in December) join the crew of a Tiger I as they question why they fight.


  • I wish DICE would stop focusing so much on making CINEMATIC EXPERIENCES and worry more about good game design. I feel like it’s kind of at the root of why Battlefield has strayed away from the kind of gameplay that older fans of the series miss.

    • You think the people who direct the cutscenes are the same people making gameplay design decisions?

      Seems like both tasks require totally different skillsets.

      • I’m not talking just about the cutscenes. For one example, the last several games in the series have had very difficult to read art design – incredibly high shadow contrast, lots of superfluous moving bullshit, weird colour grading and so on… It looks great in promotional videos and screenshots but it makes actually telling what’s going on much harder than it was in older games in the franchise.

  • Will be interesting to see one of the stories told from the perspective of German soldiers. I always felt WW2 video games had a great opportunity explore the German mindset and examine what it meant to be a soldier. If the Germans are always portrayed as generic bad guys it becomes impossible to understand them and learn how Europe ended up in that situation. However the cynic in me says not to expect much from Battlefields story.

    • I always find documentaries and movies told from the German/Japanese perspective to be very interesting. I can only think of one game (CoH Opposing Fronts) which tries to do that, so I’ll be interested to see how this one goes.

      I’m actually kind of surprised BF1 didn’t have a German/Austrian/Ottoman story… you’d think that would come with less risk of a PR nightmare than trying to tackle it in a WW2 setting (because, you know, Nazis)

  • Just over a month to go!! I can’t wait.
    This and Black Ops 4 will tie me over multiplayer wise until next years outings. Got enough single player games left to complete, and with Kingdom Hearts 3 and Resi 2 remake around the corner feels like all my Christmas have come at once lol

  • “And as always: never read the comments.”

    They say a lot, actually. I suggest you do – you might understand then the reason for this games lacklustre reception at reveal until now.

    • Because so many rabid gamer fans are disgusting toxic children who feel the need to ruin everything that’s remotely progressive?

      The game looks awesome. It was a great trailer.

      • Progressive? There was a woman in the SP of the last game ffs. No one cared.

        It’s HOW they did it here and how they told their core audience they don’t care if they then game or not.

        • Sometimes you have to give your audience the hard facts. You don’t make the game. They do. I think a lot of companies are quietly fed up with being told what to do by these kind of fans.

          If you don’t like it, don’t buy it. Ppl change. Games change. Move on!

    • Manbabies who decided to start caring about historical accuracy in arcade games last week are so angry about women and poc existing that they won’t buy a videogame in their favourite franchise for featuring them?

      I think she understands perfectly well.
