Cal Kestis, protagonist of the adventure, will be the character we will control in what Respawn Entertainment intends to become a classic adventure where elements of the canceled title of Visceral Games are perceived. An adventure without microtransactions, without DLC, focused on the gameplay, a good story and lots of action.
Fifteen minutes are nothing for an adventure of several tens of hours; but the seen helps us to understand what the title wants to be and what it does not intend to become. On November 15 we will have it in stores for PS4, Xbox One and PC.

Then came Battlefield 5 , with its Chapter 4 and 5 set in the Pacific . Autumn will be the season chosen for the fifth chapter of the current title of DICE to begin, a location that does not catch us by surprise as it was already seen in Battlefield 1942. To recreate the maps with the greatest fidelity, the developers have moved to Japan to reproduce perfectly the battle places. Among them will be Iwo Jima , a volcanic island in which the Japanese fought during the decline of the Japanese empire.
As we said, there will also be news for Chapter 4, such as Al Sundan , a desert in North Africa inspired by landscapes from the war history of the flag-less campaign.
