Battlefield 5's Official Name, Release Date, and Pre-Order Bonus Leaked
Highlights
  • Battlefield 5's official name is Battlefield 1.
  • Battlefield 1 will be out on October 18 this year.
  • Like most games, it has extra content for those pre-ordering.

Soon after the Xbox Store had an image of what is the setting of the next Battlefield game, images on popular gaming forum NeoGAF have surfaced with the game's title.

The next Battlefield game won't be called Battlefield 5 as we first expected it to be titled. Rather it sports the more fitting Battlefield 1, going with its World War I theme. And it will be available on October 18 this year.

In addition to this, pre-order information has been revealed as well. As is usually the case with most games from publisher EA, it's in the form of downloadable content (DLC).

"Pre-order now and get the Hellfighter Pack," the game's promotional material reads. "Containing themed items inspired by the heroic Harlem Hellfighter Infantry Regiment."

Earlier the Xbox Store put up an image of what appears to be the game's protagonist holding a variant of the Mauser pistol and a trench club - a melee weapon used in World War I.

In addition to this, some of EA's own employees have taken to Twitter to voice their anger at the early reveal from Microsoft if screen grabs are to be believed, which further lends credence to this leak.

With a release date, pre-order information, and an official title already revealed, all that's left is to see what it looks like. Hopefully EA's world premiere has actual gameplay instead of CG footage.

Barring Battlefield: Hardline which took place in a civilian backdrop, every other game in the series focused on military settings. With the gaming community growing tired of futuristic first-person shooters, and EA covering their quota of such with Titanfall 2, a World War I setting for the next Battlefield might not be such a bad idea after all.
