"Battlefield 5," Looks and Sounds Promising
Today the game, "Battlefield 5," was officially announced. Set during World War II it will have interesting changes to the usual gameplay and have zero loot boxes to buy for in-game advantages, instead favoring the ability to purchase cosmetic items. As someone who has always had a soft spot for the, "Battlefield," series (the awesome games as well as the weaker ones) I would say things look promising and sound good--at least on metaphorical paper. The only incidences of people seeming especially upset are the usual morons mad that women and black people happen to be in the game for so-called historical accuracy reasons (never-mind the major roles of women in front-line at times for the Soviet Union or how WWII was when America desegregated the military).
I don't play video-games nearly as much nowadays but this is a game I will for sure try to get some screen-time in with when it comes out in October. The single-player stories of, "Battlefield I," were great and hopefully we'll get more cool yarns here, and the multi-player antics of the, "Battlefield," games have always entertained me from the old days when I was playing, "Battlefield 1942," on my creaky PC to the shenanigans I got to on my ol' PS3 with the quality, "Battlefield 3." I'm assuming this will at least be a good time, if not a great one. Here's hoping!
