Battlefield V

At EA’s press conference today, DICE revealed that more details about the ‘War Stories’ single player campaign for Battlefield V will be available tomorrow.

In the midst of a presentation focused firmly on the multiplayer offerings of the title, EA revealed that the game will include segments focusing on “human heroism.” The stories will focus on “real and relatable characters facing the brutality of war.” The first story to be detailed will be that of Nordlys, a female freedom fighter on the Norwegian home front, while the developers have also previously hinted at Scandinavia, northern Africa, and Rotterdam as planned settings.

The campaigns are also expected to adopt the vaunted destruction systems and new gameplay possibilities of multiplayer, which includes windows that players can now dive through.

DICE announced Battlefield V and the return of the ‘War Stories’ last month. At that time, the game was confirmed to return to the fields of World War II, with a focus on stories that have not been told in video games before in an attempt to drive home the struggles of war.

The narrative structure originated in the franchise’s previous game, Battlefield 1.

Konami Willing to Make More Remasters

Zone of the Enders Konami

Konami has said that it is willing to remaster more games if fans ask for them.

During an IGN interview at E3 about Zone of the Enders: The 2nd Runner Mars, Konami brand manager Benjamin Kinney expressed the company’s willingness to produce more remasters:

“Eventually if you’re loud enough and you speak with one voice, anything is possible.”

Zone of the Enders: The 2nd Runner Mars is a remastered version of the PlayStation 2 game featuring a new VR mode, coming to PC and PlayStation 4. The title was initially announced at Sony’s Tokyo Games Show in 2017.

The remaster will come native at 4K with recreated textures, updated particle effects, and new control schemes to name just a few of the many improvements across the game. The title also includes a new Very Easy mode so players can experience the story.

The most notable addition is VR support. Playing Zone of the Enders: The 2nd Runner Mars in VR will put the gamer in the cockpit of Jehuty, the character’s giant mecha. Konami has recreated the cut scenes and assets to contribute to an immersive situation. The developers have worked with first-party VR companies such as PlayStation VR and HTC Vive to refine the game, making it as smooth as possible to reduce any chance of motion sickness.

Zone of the Enders: The 2nd Runner Mars has a gallery mode with VR where users can tumble and look at various models in game. The game will sport “next-gen audio,” supporting Dolby Atmos and Dolby 7.1 surround sound.

The first game has not been remastered for the PlayStation 4 nor VR, but if the fans ask for it, Konami may listen.

4K and VR demos are available on the PlayStation Store to download.
