A reddit post has revealed some huge details regarding EA’s plan for the Next Battlefield game. Two images regarding EA’s upcoming event called EA Play, which will take place during the same week as E3 2016, has leaked online, and one of them features the name of the next Battlefield game.


Titled Battlefield 5: Eastern Front, the game will see you team up with European allies in order to push back the Russians from Eastern Europe and halt their invasion attempts. You’ll be travelling to several major European cities such as Kiev, Minsk and Vilnius.

This is interesting if true. But if it's WW2 why are we fighting the Russians. It's more like a post WW2 or cold war era setting I imagine. Was hoping for a pure WW2 or 2142 game though. We will have to wait and see if EA confirms this.

"European allies in order to push back the Russians"

mmm dont think so mate.

This will be a semi future setting imo, they teased next gen weapons like the railgun and hover tank being developed by russians in End Game the last DLC pack for BF4.

So this game will probably be a leap forward on that and have the Russian feature as a power house against an allied European front.

That makes sense, Syzk. Plus it mentions a titan, so It might be 2142-ish. Which is what I want. Wonder if they will add the PAC as DLC.

I imagine it will use Frostbite 3 like Battlefield 4 and Battlefront or perhaps a newer version of it. I hope it's not just some half-arsed Battlefield 3.75, that would make me sad.

If that's not fake, that's a new low point for cover art

And highly out of character compared to the theme of every other cover art in the series.

They did, for a little bit, in 1939 before the actual WW2 had started for real, but all they really invaded though was Poland before Germany turned against them. The "Eastern Front" though is the term given to the theatre of battle between the Soviets and Germany, so it doesn't really make sense to call a game "Eastern Front" if its set pre-WW2 before Hitler turned against the Soviets. Or its some alternate timeline WW2 where the war went differently and Nazis had armies of giant mechs and titans. I'd be all for that!

I don't think it'll be WW2 though, my money is on some Tom Clancy style near-future war scenario, that seems to be all the rage lately. Maybe play off real world political s*** thats been happening lately, tensions between Russia and Ukraine, etc and hyper inflate it to make it into some kind of pressure point that starts a world war. Instead of driving tanks and planes in the single player, there'll be a sequence where you control drones and kill a bunch of people from afar and the game will make some kind of ethical/moral point about what war in the 21st century has turned into.

I'm confused, so will it be futuristic?
