Classic maps from Battlefield 1942 could be returning for the series’ next big shooter.
Earlier this month, Electronic Arts unveiled Battlefield V, the upcoming next entry to its flagship first-person shooter series. While the latest title shifts its focus to the Second World War, it marks the return of War Stories, Operations and other beloved features of 2016’s Battlefield 1. Despite being a time-worn era, Battlefield V appears to be delivering a fresh angle on the conflict.
With its reveal event establishing a tone for Battlefield V, little information has surfaced on its multiplayer mode. Nevertheless, returning to a well-explored period for the franchise, an opportunity lies ahead for its developer to offer throwbacks to its roots.
