2018: The year where both Battlefield and Call of Duty missed their mark.

Ok, why does the first section of the trailer look like an Indiana Jones scene? Why is there a female enlisted soldier - on the front lines no less - in WWII? WHY DOES SAID SOLDIER HAVE A PROSTHETIC ARM? And one that wouldn't be common place until decades later?

It's clearly not a super historically accurate take on WW2, I don't see the issue here.

I could swear this game would took place in a modern setting, since mainline BF games always tend to get more modern, or in the Vietnam War, because of the V. They made a BF game set in WWI and named it Battlefield 1, and now they're making one set in WWII and calling it Battlefield V (5)? It doesn't make any sense lol.

Well there already was a Battlefield 2, and COD used WWII last year so something like Battlefield II is too similar. The letter V (for Victory) is a well known symbol of WWII and it makes sense given that there hasn't been a Battlefield 5. It's kind of weird but Black Ops IIII makes even less sense lol

The letter V is a well known symbol of WW2? I've literally never heard of that before.
I've heard of V in relation to the Hundred Years War but that's all. A Battlefield game based on that could be pretty cool actually...

My only complaint is the name. It should be battlefield two...

V-day: Victory Day, reference to the Allied victories in World War II.
I still think they should of called it Battlefield II

An alternate dimension dark comedy, apparently.
