Fresh Battlefield 6 gossip has emerged via reputed leaker Tom Henderson this week, who claims that the next chapter DICE’s military shooter franchise will include campaign that supports co-op and is set in the near future.
Henderson claims that the game will simply be titled Battlefield and won’t feature a number in the title, and is set about a decade in the future with specialist technology including advanced drones, choppers, jets and more.
Furthermore, DICE has made significant changes to the traditional Battlefield campaign experience, so that players are now able to enjoy branching paths and allows players to switch sides during the course of the narrative, as well as team up with other gamers in co-op.
Here’s what Henderson had to say on the subject:
The campaign will focus on you and your specialist unit, where you’ll be able to choose which superpower you fight for, Both the USA and Russia, who are the game’s only standing superpowers, will offer to ‘recruit’ your specialist team and their skills throughout the campaign, which will be a valuable asset to both sides.
In regards to multiplayer, the leaker revealed that players will have the chance to pick between four different types of soldiers and customise them via perks similar to Call of Duty. As an example, the Scout soldier may be able to traverse terrain quietly, where as an Assault soldier may feature the ability to spring for longer.
Battlefield 6 rumors have been gathering pace lately, with another prominent leaker, Jeff Grub, claiming the game is being lined up for a May 2021 reveal. In addition, a survey by EA has suggested that the game will include a Battle Pass and Free-to-Play elements.
The new Battlefield game will be released in holiday 2021 and is in production for PS5, PC and Xbox Series X/S.
