Like original game Battlefield 1942, Battlefield 5 takes place in World War II. This latest instalment of the franchise will focus on the “unseen locations” from WWII, with its action held in places like Norway and the Netherlands.
Battlefield 5 is set for release on October 19 for PlayStation 4, Windows PC and Xbox One.
A trial will be available to Origin and EA Access members from October 11, while a deluxe edition of the game will follow on October 16.

“Battlefield 5 is a homecoming for DICE as a studio—a return to the era that came to define the Battlefield franchise,” says Oskar Gabrielson, General Manager of EA DICE.
“But as nostalgic as we are about World War 2, we wanted to challenge the preconception of the era with an unexpected portrayal of this familiar setting. Our vision with Battlefield V is to let players explore new and untold sides of the conflict that shaped the modern world.”
“The scale of each battle and level of immersion is unlike anything we’ve done before in Battlefield and players are in for an epic journey.”
