So, this is probably your last chance to take a guess as to when and where the next game will be set. Will it be a World War I Battlefield, as the rumours of the past few months have been hinting at? Or will the series go back to the familiar setting of World War II: The Second One. Either way we'll find out bright and early tomorrow morning (about 6am AEST), so stay tuned.

Who knows maybe it'll be set in the distant future, the year 2941. An will include the stuff we all like to see now, proecdurally generated things. Procedurally generated planets, weapons, characters, maps, hell even procedurally generated DLC as part of the Season Pass.

Anyway the point is this teaser doesn't show much apart from a dude's face. We could sit here and try and take it apart and dissect each frame, is that mud on his face, is that an old-timey jacket he's wearing? But that would be ridiculous.



Personally though, I think the time is right to go back to the World War II setting. With all the fictional quasi-futuristic battles of late it'd be nice to take part in a virtual war that means something again.

I would put my money on WWII / 1944. If its not, I will be displeased.

World War 2 or I'm outta here.

Korea wouldn't be too bad either. Have had enough of modern warfare games.

Hopefully it's something in the 2142 franchise. At the end of BF4 the DLC was based around the early designs of the titans/hover craft etc

Plot twist, its set in the future where soldiers use advanced VR simulations to train and re-enact great battles from different time periods in history, and it includes WW1 and WW2 and Vietnam and all different eras, Assassin's Creed style.

WWI by the looks of it. I am not sure about this setting. Sure, we will get bolt action rifles and such but at what cost. No Tiger and Sherman tanks or MG42s. This is my initial reaction, Maybe when full info comes, it will have some sweetness to it.

Edit: Oh well. No BF1944 or 2143. I has a sad.
