At 1 PM PST/9 PM GMT, EA will offer “a first look at the future of Battlefield,” revealing the latest entry in DICE’s popular first-person shooter franchise. The event will be streamed and you can watch the entire thing here.
Before this, however, viewers will be treated to a lengthy history lesson on the series. Developers from DICE will run through Battlefield 1942, Battlefield 2142, Battlefield 3, Battlefield Hardline, and Battlefield 4, providing insider insight on each title’s development, release, and reception.
There’s been much speculation as to what the new game could be, with many hoping that it will return to World War II to differentiate itself from the many modern/future warfare currently available and on the way. Of course, others are hoping to see a new futuristic setting, no doubt due to nostalgia for Battlefield 2142.
Although EA hasn’t said much about the game, a nine-second video teaser released on May 5 has provided some clues. It features the face of a soldier as a large shadow is cast over it. He stares up at the source, but it’s difficult to make out exactly what it is. The best guess is a some sort of large aircraft.
It was also previously teased that the Battlefield series will return to a “military-style game” and is already shaping up to be a “fun, new Battlefield.” Either way, we’ll know what it is soon enough.
As always GameSpot will be on hand to offer the latest updates on the new Battlefield as an when they’re revealed.
