With Gamescom 2018 days away, EA DICE gave players a taste of what’s to come in Battlefield V. In a hauntingly beautiful trailer that is mixed with gameplay and cutscenes, we get to see the devastation of Rotterdam.
With a new rendition of “House of the Rising Sun” playing, we get to watch the destruction of Rotterdam from different POVs. With explosions all around, planes whizzing above and bullets all over, destruction is inevitable. We see footage from a soldier’s perspective, a tank operator’s and also various flying shots to show the scale of the fight.
While the various scenes helped build the tension and hype the players up, it was the final scene that took the cherry on the cake. What we see is a Ring of Fire slowly envelope an area as people within are fighting for survival.
If you hadn’t guessed already, that’s EA Dice teasing the Battle Royale mode. Unlike games where an invisible blue circle closes in on you, having a Ring of Fire slowly get closer and closer must really put the fear of God in players. Safe to say, we’re excited to see what they have in store for us at Gamescom 2018.
We’ll be at Gamescom 2018, covering the show, checking out games, both on the floor and behind closed doors. Stay tuned to Gaming Monk for all the latest news and updates.
