Story modes are alive and well so while Call of Duty may have dropped its story mode, Battlefield V is not going down the same path. EA DICE has confirmed that War Stories are making a comeback this year.
EA DICE is developing War Stories and did plenty of research to make things as historically accurate as possible. While fans may not agree with the company’s casual take on World War 2, DICE apparently did plenty of research and dug deep into the history books for Battlefield V, according to Senior Producer Lars.
The used history books to find interesting events and locations for the new game. According to Lars, it gives them a chance to reflect upon the war.
We have dug deep into the history books of the Second World War to find interesting events and locations to build this. Basically, it gives us the possibility to reflect upon the War, those personal destinies, those people that fought during the war, inspired by lots of these events to bring them forward.
It is odd that they are claiming historical accuracy while using colorful customization options. The game has a very COD-like feel to it and is using some Fortnite elements. The main attraction of Battlefield series is that it takes itself seriously and does not appeal to the casual shooter players. Following in the footsteps of Call of Duty won’t end well for the franchise. However, we do not know enough about the game to form an opinion about it.
EA PLAY will bring more news about Battlefield V.
The game is releasing on PS4, Xbox One, and PC on October 16. Pre-order the game to get early access to the open beta.
