Picture: Battlefield 3
The final time the principle Battlefield sequence dabbled with a correct marketing campaign was all the way in which again in 2013, when Battlefield 4’s singleplayer dropped and underwhelmed just about anybody who laid fingers on it.
I do know Battlefields 1 & 5 additionally had some singleplayer stuff, however they had been extra of a tutorial, and I don’t ever wish to discuss Battlefield Hardline ever once more. So information that EA wish to return to the thought of some sort of Battlefield marketing campaign is—bear with me right here—however a welcome one for followers, as a result of as undercooked as a lot of Battlefield’s tales have been, they’ve additionally been weirdly memorable? Like, I take into consideration this Battlefield Three mission loads:

Backed by a world-class crew, he’ll be main the cost to develop a story marketing campaign set within the Battlefield universe that may have interaction followers in new and thrilling methods whereas remaining true to the basic components of the sequence.
G/O Media could get a fee
It’s humorous that, for all of the shit the sport has eaten, Battlefield 2042 was maybe probably the most fertile floor for a singleplayer expertise in sequence historical past, since its imaginative and prescient of a climate-ravaged world and armies made up of refugees fleeing the devastation set it aside from the standard “US navy vs [bad guys]” premise of most different trendy shooters. It’ll be fascinating to see what they give you as an alternative, then, particularly since they’re being so bizarre about calling it a “marketing campaign expertise” and never simply “a brand new online game”.
