Battlefield V's Weapon List Has Some Curious Omissions

Today, Electronic Arts and DICE revealed the list of weapons, gadgets, and vehicles appearing in Battlefield V at launch. With 30 primary weapons, 7 sidearms, and 9 melee weapons, 16 gadgets, and 24 vehicles the initial arsenal sounds decent. You can read all about them here. Many guns should be intimately familiar to Battlefield 1 players considering roughly half of them appeared in that game as well. But when you start to dig into the details, there are some interesting omissions. 

Two of the weapons most associated American forces during the war – the M1 Garand and BAR M1918 – are nowhere to be found. This shouldn't be too surprising since EA previously announced the game is launching with only the British and German factions. DICE plans to add more factions (and presumably weapons) as it rolls out new theaters of war in its Tides of War post-launch campaign. 

Battlefield V releases on anywhere from November 9 to November 20 depending on what version you purchase for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, or PC.

New Red Dead Redemption II Hands-On Impressions From The Opening To Its Open World

New Red Dead Redemption II Hands-On Impressions From The Opening To Its Open World

Dutch van der Linde’s gang is on the run. The notorious band of outlaws pressed their luck in Blackwater, and the resulting fallout from a failed boat heist has been devastating. A few dozen stragglers have retreated from the territory of West Elizabeth to the Grizzlies, and the situation is looking grim. Winter has laid claim to the mountainous region and ravaged the wounded. Morale is lower than ever. Through it all, Dutch has done his best to maintain control of a group that, even in good times, resists a guiding hand. Things are going to get worse before they get better – if they ever do.

Red Dead Redemption II is set in 1899, more than a decade before its predecessor, which leads to an obvious question: Don’t we already know how this all ends? Former gang member John Marston hunted down his old friends, including Dutch, before he met his own tragic fate. That still holds true, but after playing the game from the beginning for more than five hours, it’s clear that there’s still plenty of story to uncover – and it takes place in Rockstar’s most fully realized world yet.

Valkyria Chronicles 4 is a great return to form for the series, but between the first and fourth entries, it's likely you've missed some of the backstory behind the game's geopolitical conflict. 

If you're a fake history buff or just want to get caught up on the world of Europa, Sega has you covered. The company has released a documentary-style trailer covering the history of Europa (not to be confused with Europe), covering the plots and backstories players need to know before diving into VC4.

Minecraft: Dungeons Is A Co-op Dungeon Crawler Coming To PC Next Year

 Minecraft is all about imagining a new worlds and going on adventures within them. Minecraft: Dungeons takes the first part out of the equation and instead focuses on dungeon-crawling with your friends.

Announced at this year's Minecon, Dungeons is a four-player dungeon crawler using Minecraft's iconic blocky art style, but emphasizing the loot-hording and exploration aspects of the original game. This won't supplant Minecraft, however, as Dungeons is being made by a smaller team at Mojang. "This has been a passion project for them, and is inspired by their love of classic dungeon crawler games," the announcement post says.

You can watch the first trailer for Dungeons, which hits PC next year, below.

Multiplayer Horror Game Last Year: The Nightmare Gets Its First Bloody Trailer

Last Year: The Nightmare is a recently announced multiplayer horror game for PC, putting five players as survivors and a sixth as a murderer. The group of teenagers that comprise the survivors wake up to find themselves in a mirror version of their sleepy home town, which itself contains a supernatural force taking the form of psychotic murderers to hunt them down. You can check out the reveal trailer for the game below.

The game seems similar to other asymmetrical horror titles like Friday the 13th or Dead by Daylight, but seems to put a bit more agency into the hands of the survivors.

The title is one of the First on Discord launch titles, meaning it will be releasing on PC later this Fall.

Dragon Ball FighterZ Launch Trailer Takes The Fight Outside

Dragon Ball FighterZ Launch Trailer Takes The Fight Outside

Dragon Ball FighterZ is finally releasing on Switch soon, nine months after the game hit other platforms, which dares publisher Bandai Namco to create a launch trailer that isn't just redundant. To do just that, the trailer focuses on the Switch's unique features while also showing off that the game seems to run quite alright on the system.

In the below trailer, two friends wearing orange and blue/white (get it) are yelled at by their grandmother or landlady, it's not totally clear, for making too much noise playing FighterZ on Switch. So they take the right outside and catch the attention of a young woman, who joins them for play. The battles continue and come to a head with a force when the older woman wearing purple with a hairless cat by her side ends up taking part in the fight as well.

I also think it has a reference to 1990s comedy Home Improvement but I might be wrong.
