What to expect from the next Battlefield
Eagle-eyed readers will note that Stuff has tagged the game with a numerical entry in its title, but the truth is, no one knows with the game’s going to be called at this stage – whether it’s going to have a number or subtitle assigned hasn’t been confirmed.
What we do know is that DICE Studio Head Oskar Gabrielson has described the new game as being a “bold step” for the franchise that will take everything about it to “the next level”.
“[It has] Epic scale. All-out military warfare. Crazy, unexpected moments. Game-changing destruction. Massive battles, packed with more players and mayhem than ever before. All brought to life with the power of next-gen consoles and PCs,” Gabrielson wrote in a blog post back in April.
On top of that, some leaked video footage back in May seems to point to either a modern-day or a near-future setting for the game – an assumption backed up by the music in the above teaser, which sounds like Nine Inch Nails clearing the dust out of a sound bank.
