In a series of tweets this morning, DICE detailed Battlefield 5’s campaign, dubbed War Stories, which drops players into France, England, and Norway to fight for the Allied Forces during World War II.
In the War Story “Tirailleur,” players will take on the role of a French colonial soldier from Africa to fight for the liberation of France, a country he’s never seen and which doesn’t accept him. “This is the untold story of forgotten soldiers fighting on a forgotten front,” tweeted DICE.
“Under No Flag” gives a criminal a second chance to redeem himself after getting out of a London jail. Players will fight alongside a Special Boat Section unit and do “whatever it takes to get the job done.”
“Nordlys,” tasks players with leading a young resistance fighter through occupied Norway in an attempt ot rescue her mother and liberate Norway. It’s “a story of family and sacrifice,” that follows a “desperate” mission to prevent the Axis Powers from acquiring supplies crucial to their war effort.
IGN recently went hands-on with Battlefield 5’s War Stories and found them to be deeper and more meaningful than Battlefield 1’s. Earlier this week, DICE and Electronic Arts released Battlefield 5’s official single-player trailer.
Battlefield 5 will be released on Nov. 20 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
