The launch of L3 Battlefield V is set for next week, with a trailer and new content to be announced. But, is it all what it seems? Here are some important things to know.
EA DICE has released a Battlefield V reveal trailer that provides a detailed look at its upcoming World War II game. The clip showcases the game’s eight multiplayer modes and a glimpse of its new Battle Royale mode, Firestorm.
In addition to its eight modes, the game will include the single-player anthology, War Stories. It will be set in Africa and Norway, and will feature new missions that will be added post-launch. These missions will also focus on the lesser-known battles in WWII.
Along with a preview of the new gameplay, the developers announced that the game will also ship with eight new maps. These maps will range from the familiar to the less-known. They include the Hamada, Fjell 652, and Arras maps. Several of these maps are similar to those found in the Battlefield: Bad Company series.
Another new mode, War in the Pacific, will be available in October. This mode will begin with the Spring 1940 era. This will be a more immersive squad-based experience. Players will fight in naval combat and will be able to select between multiple boats to get to the battlefield.
Lastly, the developer confirmed that Battlefield V will come with a new last-man-standing mode. This new mode will allow players to engage in intense, close-quarters combat in a house full of enemies.
While the content has been lackluster lately, we know that the game will have a few things to keep us entertained. Battlefield V’s launch date is just a few weeks away. With eight multiplayer maps, a new Battle Royale mode, and more, you’ll have plenty to do in the coming months. And don’t forget to check out the official launch trailer, which shows off a few of the maps and the Rotterdam map.
If you’ve been playing Battlefield V for the past two months, then you’ve probably noticed that the developers have been a little tight fisted about releasing new content. The most recent update, dubbed the War in the Pacific, was released on October 28th and is the game’s most extensive upgrade yet. While the release hasn’t sparked much excitement from players, the update did include some new features and a handful of new maps.
The biggest draw was the reimagined multiplayer mode, which now supports the entire family of players. In addition to the revamped multiplayer mode, players will also have access to new weapons and game tweaks, not to mention the return of Throwback Thursdays and Friday Night Battlefield servers. And, although the new game mode isn’t expected to be released in full until June, EA has confirmed that the new game mode will be coming to Battlefield 5 in the near future.
On top of the new game mode, the developer is also adding an optional dog tag for those lucky enough to nab it. Although, a dog tag may not be the first thing you think of when it comes to Battlefield, it’s a nice touch. As for the game’s background content, the new update adds a brand new map, dubbed Panzerstorm, which is a tank-heavy affair.
GamerGate harassment against women
GamerGate was a harassment campaign against women in the video game industry. It started as a personal diatribe against a female game developer. But it has evolved into a crusade against “Social Justice Warriors”, who have targeted women criticizing their misogynistic behavior.
Before Gamergate, harassment against women in the gaming industry was a problem. Men in the industry had been harassing women for years. However, with the rise of the internet, online communities have become a breeding ground for hate, and the GamerGate movement was the result.
The first target of the harassment campaign was a woman named Zoe Quinn. Then, the men behind the movement went after a game developer, Brianna Wu. They also began doxxing, a tactic that involves the publication of someone’s personal information.
The male backlash against Sarkeesian consisted of rape threats, bomb threats and other violent acts. Some of these attacks were directed at the media critic, whereas others were directed at the video game industry in general.
Many journalists categorized Gamergate as a satirical movement, and many criticized its message. Robert Evans, a host of the podcast Behind the Bastards, described Gamergate as partly organic and partly fueled by decades of campaigns against women. He believes that it is impossible for celebrities to help stop anonymous online harassment.
One of the most notable figures in the GamerGate movement is Adam Baldwin. Baldwin is an actor who has a libertarian politics. His disdain for progressive political ideas is apparent in his response to feminism.
Despite its successes, the GamerGate movement is still struggling to figure out what it has learned. Among other things, the movement has revealed that there is an immense amount of harassment against women in the gaming community. In order to combat this, Twitter has released moderation tools.
