EA Unveils Battlefield V’s Second Single-Player Campaign

Battlefield V

The second single-player ‘War Stories’ campaign of Battlefield V will take players to northern Africa as a British criminal, according to the much-anticipated shooter’s latest trailer .

Called ‘Under No Flag’, the campaign will have the protagonist using “his unique set of skills behind enemy lines,” but no other details have yet been announced.

The trailer also reveals that the game will have a total of five ‘War Stories’ for gamers to participate in, though one of them, titled ‘The Last Tiger’, will not launch until after the base game. The previously revealed ‘Nordlys’ takes players to Norway, casting fans as a female resistance fighter against the German occupation.

One of the other campaigns is simply called ‘Prologue,’ with the feature image showing a pilot. The other campaign—’Tirailleur’—goes undetailed, though the name does provide some hints. Tirailleurs were infantry units drafted into the French army from colonial territories. These soldiers were decorated for their efforts in both France and Italy.

One further detail may be gleaned from the more abundant discussion of multiplayer in the trailer, wherein the French countryside is mentioned as one of the battlegrounds.

Whether ‘The Last Tiger’ will be a part of the free ‘Tides of War’ post-launch campaign or will come with an additional fee has not yet been revealed.

Unfortunately, information on the single-player content of the game makes up only a brief portion of the new trailer, following a trend of missing out on the unique value proposition supplied by the campaigns this holiday season.

Following a recent delay, Battlefield V is scheduled to release on November 20 on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.

Ubisoft Discusses How Uplay Plus Will Improve Communication With Players

Ubisoft Uplay+

Ubisoft believes that its new subscription service Uplay Plus will help the publisher improve communication with players.

Alain Corre, the executive director of EMEA at Ubisoft, spoke to GamesIndustry.biz where he outlined the vision and strategy for the company’s new subscription service. He explained that Uplay Plus will help boost communication with players, and the feedback it receives will help improve Ubisoft’s games.

“The reason behind our subscription service… it gives more possibilities for our fans to play our games and we can talk to them. We can keep them in our worlds, we can discuss with them and—thanks to what they say and the way they behave—we can feed that back into our games development. When we are in control of that within our ecosystem, we feel it’s beneficial for our fans. That’s ultimately what we want to do; we want to have more contact with them, more interaction, listening more to what they want and improve based on what they say.”

Corre highlighted that Ubisoft will not solely focus its efforts on Uplay Plus; players will still be able to pick up any of the publishers games either physically or as digital downloads. He explained that the company’s strategy moving into a subscription service is to adapt with modern consumer tends of gamers.

“We are still keeping the traditional model whether they buy our games in a store or download them. It’s really a case of offering the possibilities. Consumers are evolving really fast, and we want to adapt to what they want and propose new things to them, as well as keep the other means of distribution.”

Furthermore Ubisoft revealed that Uplay Plus and all past and future games will be available on the Google Stadia. Ubisoft was an early vocal supporter of Google’s new console, especially as the upcoming console focuses solely on streaming games.
