Battlefield 5 Teaser Released Ahead of World Premiere – IGN

6 months ago Comments Off on Battlefield 5 Teaser Released Ahead of World Premiere – IGN

With Battlefield 5’s world premiere coming later today, you’d think its employees might be showing a few nerves. Not so – DICE-associated accounts are having a lot of fun on social media this morning.

The Battlefield Twitter account yesterday revealed a miniature teaser of “game-engine footage”. It consciously doesn’t reveal anything much about the setting of the game, although some are suggesting the character’s clothes point to the rumoured World War 1 setting.

Speaking of that setting speculation, ex-DICE develoepr Ben Cousins has excited some by suggesting some “random reading” on Codename Eagle, a WW1-set shooter made by the team that would go on to merge with DICE and create Battlefield 1942:

Predictably, the official Battlefield channels are not letting on what we could be seeing later, going so far as to make jokes at their excitable fans’ expense:

Very funny, you guys.

And then, of course, there’s that rivalry to address. With Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare now officially announced, DICE Senior Video & Media Director, Randy Evans made a little reference to Call of Duty’s notably odd choice to tease a new game with a poop emoji and the suggestion of soiling oneself.

Battlefield 5 has its world premiere event later today. You can watch a livestream later, and IGN will be there to get the news out as soon as it breaks.

Joe Skrebels is IGN’s UK News Editor and he is really curious about how, if it is a World War 1 game, DICE plans to make trench warfare seems like a right old laugh. Let’s find out together on Twitter.
