Late tomorrow, EA will finally be announcing a brand new Battlefield game, and they couldn’t have done it at a better time.
Little did they know, millions of gamers around the globe would be relying on this reveal, especially after the massive disappointment that was the Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare trailer. However, while a new Battlefield is welcome, no matter the theme, this year’s installment may be exactly what fans were looking for in the new Call of Duty. Besides, fans who were really looking forward to mostly playing the remastered version of COD 4: Modern Warfare are now no longer willing, due to it’s steep $80 bundle.
I think we can all agree that the future as been done to death, and personally, another shooter set decades (or hundreds of years) from now just might make me throw up.
However, rumors have surfaced over the past few weeks that may mean big news for tomorrow.
“Mehrspieler Taktik Shooter im 1. Weltkrieg”
Many of you have most likely seen this leak before, but for those who haven’t – a Swiss retailer put up an unnamed listing for the new Battlefield game, and the above text was its description. It translates to “Multiplayer tactical shooter in WW1.”
This began to stir up a great deal of discussion throughout the Battlefield community. While it may be possible that this retailer accidentally placed an incorrect description, it still has a chance at holding some truth.
Let’s say that the new game will be set somewhere in the past; we could be talking about a next-gen version of Battlefield 2, Battlefield 1942 – or a completely fresh title, as we are meant to expect.
All the rumors and leaks aside; you don’t really have to say much about upcoming Battlefield games (at least most of the time). It’s just one of those franchises – whatever DICE chooses to do with their game, they’ll find a way to make it a ton of fun; both alone and with friends. This is precisely the idea that I think will overtake COD this year. This much resistance so early in the year isn’t good for pre-orders, and low pre-order sales in May/June almost always mean low sales in November.
Could this be the year that Battlefield reigns as king? We’ll have to wait and see.
A TEASER IMAGE HAS BEEN LEAKED ALONG WITH BASIC INFO ABOUT THE NEW BATTLEFIELD GAME
IT WILL BE TITLED “BATTLEFIELD 1”, AND TAKES PLACE DURING AN ALTERNATE WWI!!!!
THE SWISS RETAILER WAS CORRECT!
One of my first concerns was what they were planning on doing in WWI, especially with the limited tech, but seeing that it will take place in an alternate reality makes me very excited for the trailer that will be released in just a few hours.
HERE IS THE LEAKED IMAGE!!
