So this happened today.
In addition, DICE published its new roadmap for Chapter 4 of its ongoing free live service Tides of War.
I'm still sorting through my feelings about this game after having made an enormous 180º turn on it in the past couple of weeks. 2016's Battlefield 1 is one of my favorite games of all time, but Battlefield V... I can't think of a time when I was more crushingly disappointed by a game. Apropos of nothing, I gave it yet another shot last month after stepping away from it shortly after launch. And I haven't stopped playing since.
I wanna write something about both games at some point, if only to help myself fully understand the path the series has taken over the last few years. But I will say that this trailer has me more excited than any other game announcement so far this year.
One of the cooler things to come from this surprise trailer drop has been seeing the Battlefield community completely revitalized and hopeful for the game again. I don't put too much stock in those folks since I never seem to see eye-to-eye with them on this series, but the collective excitement has been great to see. I can only imagine how relieving it is for DICE as well.
