Battlefield V returns to World War 2, which means a lot of focus on the heroism of a just cause, the Greatest Generation, and all the imagery that entails. Electronic Arts and DICE have detailed Battlefield 5's new War Stories campaign mode through a new trailer that debuted today. Back in June, DICE revealed the first of those stories, “Nordlys,” which takes place in 1943 during the German occupation of Norway and focuses on a young resistance fighter. In addition to Norway, DICE promised War Stories set in the North African desert and “several other locations.”
Players will take on enemies as a German Tiger I tank driver and even embody the Senegalese Tirailleurs, a part of the French army that we don't often see in campaign stories like these. It's going to take us to a lot of places, all of which look incredibly unique.
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.
Battlefield 5 will be released on PlayStation 4, Windows PC and Xbox One on Nov. 20.
Those who can’t wait for Nov. 20, EA is giving away all four expansions for Battlefield 1 through October. The first two are free now, and the second two will likely swap out as the freebies later in the month. You can also find the game itself relatively cheap on all platforms, if you don't have it already.
