After taking the popular Battlefield
series to "the beginning" with the First World War-based Battlefield 1
, developers have returned the action to its World War II roots with Battlefield V
. Anyone who's not familiar with this first-person shooter need know only
that the original game, introduced in 2002 as Battlefield 1942
, offers players the chance to control vehicles as well as soldiers. At the time of its introduction, that was a novel twist for the traditional FPS, and it helped propel the series to success.
