In fact, we already know that EA and DICE are working on a trailer for Battlefield V, so the game should be announced within the next couple of months. Each chapter will focus on the exploits of a different character, which should allow DICE to tell multiple stories with plenty of gameplay variety. The publication recently confirmed the veracity of the Battlefield V picture leak, and has now followed up with some more info about the upcoming shooter. The outlet claims DICE is working hard on co-op play and is paying a lot of attention to the split-screen aspect, but the source doesn't confirm that this feature will make it into the final game.
We'll hear more on 2018's Battlefield game, whatever it might be, when EA Play takes place during E3 2018 this June. The studio is trying to maintain some internal consistencies between Battlefield 1 and Battlefield V, and that may include bringing back voice actors like Katherine Kingsley, a voice announcer in Battlefield 1's multiplayer mode. "On January 22, she posted an image on Instagram of herself in a booth recording new lines for a project that included "#battlefield" in the caption", the post continues. If you have "Battlefield 1" then you would know that it is about time to get a new "Battlefield" game. It also remains unclear if this special game mode will let users play in splitscreen.
Battlefield 5 is also said to have a version of Rainbow Six Siege's prone mechanic. This option should allow for more maneuverability within the competitive multiplayer setting.
Speaking of the new "Battlefield" game, a series of rumors and reports are now calling the new game as "Battlefield V" because EA does not really follow the numbers anyway. EA and DICE are both expected to expand on this and emphasize that it will not affect gameplay nor will it be a pay-to-win system.
An inside source told US Gamer that, while loot boxes are making a return for the next "Battlefield" installment, EA learned from the controversy with "Battlefront II" and decided to make sure that there would be no pay-to-win mechanics within them.
EA received a lot of flak and faced major controversy past year when it came to its implementation of microtransactions and loot boxes in "Battlefront II".
