Here’s the world premiere of Battlefield 1

Update: DICE have just revealed the first full trailer for Battlefield 5. Check it out below:

Original story from earlier this morning that was written by god’s perfect idiot, follows on. P.S, it’s about that four second teaser, so we’re kind of done here already.

When it comes to contemporary warfare shooters, there’ll also be two camps of the most diehard fans out there: Battlefield and Call of Duty. Two massive franchises, but with radically different approaches to creating war. I’ve long considered Call of Duty to be the AC/DC rock concert to the London Philharmonic Orchestra, as the two franchises have had some epic clashes over the years in the sales charts.

It’s been a while since a proper Battlfield game showed up however, not counting last year’s Battlefield: Hardline. Battlefield 4 was released way back in the dark ages of 2013, and the general consensus was that it was not bad at all. This year, Battlefield grows up by a single digit with the next chapter in that series being unveiled later tonight at 4PM ET. Or 10PM locally, which is way, way past my bedtime on a Friday night, because I don’t want to upset mother.

Anyway, here’s an entire FOUR seconds of a teaser to get you pumped up. Plus a bonus four seconds of reminders afterwards! FOUR!

Right, so we know that when it comes to vanilla soldiers glancing upwards while their face is covered in grime, Battlefield 5 has you covered. Man, those upward glancing physics. Uncharted 4, you’ve got some competition. What other clues are there?

Battlefield (2)

Limp Bizkit Behind Blue Eyes Soundtrack DLC: CONFIRMED.

Battlefield (2)

Unpierced nose DLC which hasn’t gone through that rebellious Emo phase that its parents just couldn’t understand because they work for the system man: CONFIRMED.

Battlefield (2)

Maybe he’s born with it maybe it’s Revlon DLC: CONFIRMED.

So what does this year have in store for Battlefield fans? There’s all manner of rumours going around, saying that World War One will form the backbone of this incursion back into unfriendly waters, with EA saying back in January that Battlefield 5 would be “a return to a Battlefield military-style game.”

EA has also made some Battlefield 4 and Hardline DLC free through its PC Origin service, PlayStation and Xbox until May 10, so you might want to hop on that if you’re still digging those older games. Said DLC includes Dragon’s Teeth and Robbery. I’ll update this post as soon as the trailer goes live. Keep an eye out. Or F5 your screen until your finger is nothing but a withered husk of bone if you’re that kind of Battlefield fan.

            I’m not averse to standing behind a meat shield. Did it last night in the sortie. My Vauban is kinda flimsy, so I stayed back & made sure the defense target stayed untouched while the others ran around being heroes.

            May 6, 2016 at 09:08

            We each have our role.

            Like mine in Division, doing damage, reviving, repeat

          • Alien Emperor Trevor

            May 6, 2016 at 09:14

            I’ve been using Vauban again lately for infested missions, I’m kinda surprised at how often I end up second on the damage/kills list. I’m defensive. I don’t have major offensive skills.

            The other day I did a cryotic farm with 2 banshees & an excal – the 1 banshee had 50%, I was next with 20. How? I’m busy bastilling the crap out of the extractors and I still outdamage the WHOOSHWHOOSHWHOOSH machine?

            May 6, 2016 at 09:32

            No, it needs a ridiculous 30k worth of cryotic to build. I’ve only got around 20k now, and I’m not farming all that hard for it, just a couple a week.

          • Admiral Chief in New York

            May 6, 2016 at 09:33

            Mine is built, will give it a shot soon, but yeah, 30k cryotic is madness (I had 29k, to start with)

          • Alien Emperor Trevor

            May 6, 2016 at 09:40

            I had about 12k when it came out because I used a crapload to build Trinity P, then used another 3k to build the Inaros alt-helm.

        My Red Valkyr is so misunderstood too. She had to color her suit red to hide the blood that keeps getting on her when the Grineer keep running on to her freestyle dance routines she does with swords. They keep impaling themselves! Weirdos.

    Seriously, if they announce that this is set in World War 1, I will PREORDER this game TODAY (and I never preorder). If it’s another futuristic pile of turd, Dice can suck it. I won’t touch it with my banana. If I wanted to play Halo, I’ll go and buy Halo.

    I see people shouting COD Killer all over social media but while the game looks awesome it’s not looking anything like COD.

    Hopefully it’s going back to the true Battlefield experience and no longer trying to out-COD COD.

    Some of the worst movies I have ever seen looked fantastic in trailers and this reminds me of those movies. At least the COD trailer had the gumption to show actual gameplay but I am sure, like previous installments, both games will suck.
