EA Play E3 2018: Battlefield V Release Date, Trailer, beta and more for PS4, Xbox One X


Battlefield V: EA Play E3 2018 Release Date news, Trailer, Beta and more for PS4, Xbox One

EA Play is the first big showcase of E3 2018.

The event sees the publisher get in early and show off its upcoming games before the likes of Microsoft, Bethesda, Sony, Nintendo, Square Enix and more start rolling out their upcoming titles.

If the name wasn't already a dead giveaway, EA Play is effectively a press conference for Electronic Arts and will showcase their new releases set to arrive over the next few months and potentially well into 2018.

Unusually, EA Play is also a fan event with over 10 game experiences on show, 140 hands-on gaming stations, demos, live music and more.

We've seen Battlefield V imagery and logos appear on E3 banners for EA Play - so it seems very likely the game will be playable at the event.

Aside from the reveal event on May 23, this will be the first time the public will get chance to see what to expect from this year's showcase, and will give us a very clear idea of what we can expect from this year's Battlefield offering.

In addition to this, EA announced in March that at EA PLAY 2018, Electronic Arts E3 2018 event attendees will have a chance to play the new Battlefield experience.

You can see everything we know so far about all the games that have been announced and shown at E3 2018 here.

Battlefield V - What we already know

Release Date: 2018

Publisher: Electronic Arts
Platforms: Confirmed for PS4, Xbox One and PC. Likely also Xbox One X/PS4 Pro Enhanced
Genre: FPS

Battlefield V - What is it?

EA has announced it will be releasing a new Battlefield game in 2018, as its other big shooter - Anthem - slips to 2019's launch window.

This will make it two years since a Battlefield launch - Battlefield 1 released in fall 2016 - but details are pretty thin on the ground about what kind of game this proposed shooter will be.

Battlefield 2018 - When is it coming out?

The only information we have about Battlefield's release date so far is that the game will be coming out late this year.

The earnings call from EA stated the game would see a Q3 release this year - if you look back at previous Battlefield games, you'll see Battlefield 1 got launched on 21 October and Battlefield 4 on 29 October.

Does that hint at a potential release day?

Maybe, but then you have to remember Rockstar recently announced Red Dead Redemption 2 will launch on October 26... so we imagine most other publishers are going to want to steer well clear of that (see: Call of Duty/Activision).
