Battlefield 5 was revealed in a livestream earlier this afternoon along with a trailer. Check it out right here.

The reveal trailer for Battlefield 5 is just as intense as you’d expect from a DICE game.

Plenty of explosions, death, destruction, and fast paced action make up almost 100% of what you’ll see.

As you can see in the trailer, players can drag downed squad mates to safety and revive them. Team work is important this time around, as it will generate squad points which will help the team win the day. You’ll also notice the animation system has been overhauled, and players will actually feel shockwaves impacting their surroundings.

Along with the animation system overhaul is a revised destruction system. This will allow players to push through larger objects like the house you see in the trailer’s opening. This allows for new tactical options, and each weapon will create different bullet holes and splinters when penetrating stationary objects.

In the trailer you can also see a British Valentine tank towing a Flak-38 stationary weapon to a  location.The weapon is fully functional while being towed.

One of the most noticeable things in the Battlefield 5 video is the look of the soldiers. Each are an example of how the player’s evolved Company can appear. These various customization options can be earned and it’s now just “about vanity,” as even customized sniper rifles and anti-tank gear can fulfill a “unique role on the battlefield.”

Players can expect to see plenty of personalized weapons and vehicles once the game releases.

Fortifications and repairs were also shown in the video. Teammates are able to fortify positions, build walls with sandbags, and configure stationary weapons.

Various locations will be featured in the game, and in the trailer you get a look at the events leading up to the evacuation of Dunkirk. Expect plenty of infantry, tank, and planes combat in the game across various terrain.

It all sound very exciting, even if we didn’t get to see actual gameplay in the trailer.

Battlefield 5 releases worldwide on October 19 for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. Pre-orders of any edition of the game will provide early access to the open beta.

Those who pre-order the Deluxe Edition can play a few days early on October 16. A Play First trial will be available on October 11 for EA Access and Origin Access subscribers. It will not feature a Premium Pass.
