Battlefield 2018 details leaked - A WWII setting and about loot boxes

Late last month, we reported that the Battlefield 2018 reveal trailer is underway. A teaser for a teaser if you will. Now, details about the next Battlefield title has leaked alongside an image which you can view above, which is said to be a leaked logo image as reported on Reddit.

First thing’s first, as you probably noticed from the image, the game will reportedly be called Battlefield V, so it won’t be Bad Company 3 many fans have been hoping for. This news comes from a report on VentureBeat that claims sources familiar with EA’s plans revealed the information to them.

The report suggests that Battlefield V will have a World War II setting. It was first called Battlefield 2 and then later renamed to Battlefield V. The game will be an entirely new experience and not a remaster of Battlefield 2 released in 2005. According to the report, EA and DICE decided on their plans several years ago, as VentureBeat states:

They knew they wanted to get away from the modern and near-future settings for a while, but it also didn’t want to burn the WWII setting right away. This led the studio to start with WWI knowing that it could always still go to WWII with the next game if Battlefield 1 didn’t work out.

I, for one, am pretty excited about going back to World War 2, even though I was hoping for Bad Company 3.

US Gamer also reported on the news and added another bit of information that might not come as a shock to many gamers. They reported that a source familiar with the project told them that there will be loot boxes in Battlefield V, stating:

"Loot boxes are back but cosmetic only. Way more customization options for your soldiers than previous games."

Most gamers at this point will just think EA doing EA things and who can blame them? However, if loot boxes do indeed only offer cosmetic items in Battlefield V, I don’t have a problem with that, as long as nothing you can get from microtransactions can give you an unfair advantage.

As always, please keep in mind that this is leaked information and should be considered as a rumour, no matter who the source is. Therefore, take the information with a grain of salt until such time as EA DICE officially reveals details about the game.

What do you think about the possibility that the next Battlefield could have a World War II setting and that there will be loot boxes? Let us know in the comment section below.
