I keep looking again and again at the trailer and for the life of me I cant find any form of 'countries' or alliances, but I did see a bunch of corporate looking logos so my suspicion that this is a mercenaries game might be true.

In 2042, extreme weather events and resource conflicts have shifted the balance of global power. The United States and Russia stand at the brink of war, while a mix of non-patriated combat veterans form independent groups known as Task Forces. Fight to define the future in this never-before-seen theatre of war

Is what they say on the website. So US v Russia maybe, but definitely left open for ambiguous mercs.

Choose your role on the battlefield and form custom-made squads through the new Specialist system. Based on Battlefield's four Classes, Specialists have one unique Specialty and Trait but the rest of the loadout is fully customizable. Choosing and equipping your Specialist allows you to build synergies within your squad and empower yourself to take on any battle situation.

Specialists seem to be taking inspiration from Rainbox Six Seige and it looks like the battle pass system is going to keep adding them over time like R6S does.

The maps actually look really, really cool. There seem to be only 7 for now, but their scale and detail could be amazing. The skyscraper one talks about ziplining between rooftops which sounds awesome.

Ya I like the trailer but bit more futuristic would be the cherry on top. Really hyped for this. If gameplay reveal impresses might pre order on steam.

nope it's written in the website that 1.2 billion people become climate refugees and those are the people that US and Russia arm recruit as mercenaries and proxy armies.

Hazard Zone is smaller-scale. According to Stodeh there has been no mention of a BR at all, but the un-announced mode is "a love letter to long term BF fans" which doesn't really scream BR to me?

Keeping with EA tradition, you know more about the future DLC plans, and pre-order bonuses before you see a single gameplay screenshot or video.

There will be three main game modes, no battle royale though, and no single player campaign. There will be AI bots though, which I think is a first since the very first game released?

Cant believe I stumbled across a 28 minute old trailer randomly. That looked very fun.

I've played a lot of Battlefield games,going all the way back to BF2. Am I the only one, that still can't get their head around planes and choppers? It blows my mind that BF flying is considered dumb and arcadey but the most I can do without crashing is fly from point A to B in a straight line, shoot things along the way and eject at the other end.
