EA and Dice slowly reveal plans for Battlefield V and it looks like they learned the lesson from their previous games.
Battlefield V last week reveal trailer caused some fervent discussions between players and specialized media about the game being not faithful to history, caused by the presence of a Great Britain female soldier, which also has a artificial arm, in action in a WW2 front-line scenario and other inaccuracies present for the sake of characters customization or the assumption of other politically correct details.
Needless to say it is too early to talk about this game since we are still missing many details about it, yet new informations are slowly coming out and are good news for the consumers.

The big news is however is the official confirmation that Battlefield V will not have any Lootboxes neither Premium Pass (DLCs), so no gambling and new content available for anyone. For reference here it is a tweet from Battlefield V official account:
It is a relief that EA is finally giving up (for now) on Lootboxes and pricey map packs that split the community and this new Battlefield looks really promising from a consumer perspective.
