Battlefield 1 (2016) and Battlefield 5 (2018, don’t ask me about its numbering system) are great games. Let’s be realistic, we all know that the Battlefield multiplayer drops COD on an armed hat and then drops the roof with delicious debris that collapses as a plane screams overhead.
And if you haven’t played them, standard editions of both will be given away for free at Prime Gaming, with Battlefield 1 available to claim until August 4th and Battlefield 5 will be available from October 2nd to October 1st. When you claim them, you will be provided with a source code and the games will be yours permanently.
Battlefield 1 took us back to World War I and told a series of more focused and cinematic player stories. Thanks to its epic scale and some incredible scenery, it is one of the best campaigns the series has had.
Battlefield 5 would actually be my choice for both of them, because I love these games because of their multiplayer chaos. The two also form a good pairing, as the World War II setting of Battlefield 5 is a themed continuation of what the studio had achieved with Battlefield 1. If nothing else, DICE always creates fantastic-looking combat sandboxes. and a lot of fun and, for free, you really can't go wrong.
These gifts are ahead of the release of this year’s series, Battlefield 2042. Set in the near future, DICE will bring 128-player maps to the series, hopefully doubling the chaos. While it won’t have a single player campaign, it will at least allow you to call a robot dog.
