One of the best parts about EA DICE's Battlefield 1 was the War Stories, the single-player narrative adventures that took place all across the World War 1 battlefield. War Stories return in Battlefield 5 and there's a new trailer that introduces some of the stories we'll experience when Battlefield 5 comes out in November.
We've known since the Battlefield 5 announcement that one of the stories would focus on a young resistance fighter in Norway, but we now have a look at some of the other stories that will be told in Battlefield 5. We have glimpses of French soldiers fighting in North Africa, a story set in some kind of jail cell, and other stories that are harder to pinpoint exactly.
There's also glimpses of the different mechanics that will be featured in the stories including tank battles, aerial dogfights, and even a skiing portion at some point presumably during the Norway-set Nordlys story.
War Stories in Battlefield 1 were successful because they focused on unique, individual narratives as opposed to a sweeping war epic we've seen countless of times before. While some stories were stronger than others (A story starring a Bedouin rebel fighting alongside T.E. Lawrence was a highlight) they all featured memorable characters. I'm looking forward to the kinds of stories that will be told in Battlefield 5.
