Battlefield 5 Reveal

Last week’s big Battlefield 5 reveal gave us the basics of what’s in store—it’ll be set in World War 2, and people will shoot at each other—but there’s still quite a bit we don’t know. EA revealed one such unknown element on Twitter yesterday, a new attack-and-defend game mode called Airborne, in which one team drops from the sky to destroy some artillery, while the other does its best to keep the guns firing.

Predictably, EA didn’t break down how exactly the system will work. My first thought is that it might be reminiscent of the old Timegate shooter Section 8, which eliminated fixed spawn points in favor of player-selected drops, but I don’t think that would fit very well with the idea of coordinated attack and defense forces in big Battlefield 5 brawls. Balancing the teams will be an interesting issue too.

Airborne attacks work because they drop guys behind the lines, where enemy forces are thin and unprepared, and portraying that in the context of a videogame without making people angry will be a challenge. Remember how annoyed Star Wars Battlefront players were when the Empire kept stomping the guts out of the Rebellion on Hoth?

Details on the new mode will no doubt be revealed during EA’s press event at E3, but in advance of that you can get a closer look at what’s coming (but not this new mode, alas) in the new “deep dive” into Battlefield 5’s gameplay changes and additions. It focuses on the two “key elements” of immersion and squad play, and while it’s mostly stuff that’s already been revealed, like changes to movement and elimination of “random bullet deviation,” it’s a handy way to get caught up in a hurry.

Battlefield 5 is set to come out on October 19. EA’s E3 presser kicks off at 11 am PT/2 pm ET on June 9.

SNAFU’s Great Game Give Away

Battlefield 5 official game trailer is premiering in May of 2018.  The VETs are having a contest with a chance to win a free copy of the game.

You can earn chances to win by answering trivia questions, attending practice, and using your knowledge of all of the Battlefield games. All answers will be submitted to me.  Your attendance points will be collected by the Chain of Command. Not only am I giving away a copy of this game, the second runner-up will also receive credit for a downloadable pack. This will not be an easy task, so I hope your competitive spirit matches your in-game play also.

Good Luck to you all.
SNAFU

Rules:

You can work together on certain objectives. I would advise though not to share answers to the trivia questions. This would give other players that advantage to have the same number of entries as you. Play to win.

  • Objectives in game play equals 2 points.
  • Trivia Questions equals 1/2 point.
  • Each week of practice gets you an entry into the pot.
    3 points = 1 entry.

All squad leaders must collect practice points for each member. Submit your information to your Division Leader.

Division Leaders submit to drliebs and SNAFU.

IF YOU MISS PRACTICE……you can buy 1 point for $1. All monies collected will go to the VETs Server Fund through the Go Fund Me site.

I will go FACEBOOK LIVE to announce the winner 1 week prior to the release of the new Battlefield game in stores.

God Speed.
