According to a listing by an online retailer, Battlefield 5 will be a tactical shooter set in World War 1.
The listing on German retailer World of Games, originally found on Twitter, lists EA’s upcoming shooter as “Mehrspieler Taktik Shooter im 1. Weltkrieg” or “Multiplayer tactical shooter in WW1” when translated to English. What’s more, it also reveals the game will be releasing on October 26.
I am happy to hear this myself. I started out playing COD 1 and 2 and loved them right up until 4 and then they started the modern era stuff that I honestly don’t care for. BF also started the modern stuff about the same time and I wish they had not.
That said I still want a shooter based around the American Revolution or the French and Indian Wars as that is my second favorite time in history.
