An older battlefield.
Hold onto your hats folks – a load of Battlefield information appears to have dropped just before the game’s official reveal in a few hours.
Industry insider Shinobi602 posted an image from the Xbox dashboard showing a soldier wearing what appears to be a cloak with a zeppelin crashing to the ground in the background. Shinobi is a reputable source, having been right about a number of leaks in the past.
To corroborate the leak, an image found on reddit has surfaced from a retailer showcasing the same image but accompanied by the title ‘Battlefield 1’.
It appears to confirm the long-standing speculation that the game will be set in World War 1, or possibly even an alternate-history version of the conflict.
Luckily we don’t have too much longer to wait until EA officially reveals the game today. Would you like it if Battlefield went back in time, or would you prefer a futuristic setting? Let us know in the comments!
