First Battlefield V Tease Hints at World War II Setting

DICE has released a short in-game tease for Battlefield V that might reveal the setting of the game.

Battlefield V’s reveal is just a few days away and DICE are already at work teasing players. The developer took to Twitter today to tease players with a short snippet from an in-game match. What makes this tease so significant is that it might confirm the game’s long-rumored setting.

The short video shows a character with goggles shushing someone in the heat of what appears to be a Conquest match. If the gear doesn’t scream World War II, then you’ll want to take a closer look at the game’s UI. At the very top, the two factions battling for supremacy appear to be Great Britain and Germany, symbolized by the Iron Cross. All the rumors suggesting that Battlefield V would be a World War II shooter appear to be correct.

Fans won’t have to wait long to see what Battlefield V is all about. The game will be fully revealed on Wednesday, May 23 and will launch this October on PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
