In a strange way, I haven't been too excited about "Battlefield V."
It's mostly because "Battlefield 1" — its predecessor — was so good that I didn't exactly feel a need for a new "Battlefield" game. It had nothing to do with the somewhat controversial trailer, or anything EA and Dice announced during "Battlefield V's" announcement.
But I'm certainly more interested after a few hours playing the new "Battlefield V" closed alpha.

"Battlefield V" builds on the chaos that made "Battlefield 1" one of the best games I've ever played.
Your life in "Battlefield V" can be a brutal slog, and it's hard not to grimace during the chaos of an intense fire fight.
