This Battlefield V Video Compares New Game To Battlefield 1942 (VIDEO)
Back in 2002, the Battlefield franchise was born with its first entry of Battlefield 1942. Taking players to the warzones of World War II, the title was well received in its time and spawned into the huge franchise we know and love today. With Battlefield V coming soon to return players to the second World War, it seems like the perfect opportunity to look back at how far the franchise has come.
YouTuber Tequila Joe recently released a video that shows the two titles in 12 minutes of side by side comparison. Though the two Battlefield games are completely separate entities the video does a good job of finding similar scenarios to place next to each other making the differences all the more noticeable.
The most obvious difference is of course the graphic changes, which is to be expected being made over 15 years ago. Compared with the smooth character animations and other movements of the upcoming Battlefield title, 1942 looks incredibly jerky and the textures look blocky and unrefined.
Mechanically the franchise has come a long way as well with sequels of 1942 adding the ability to look down various sights, scopes, and other aiming peripherals. Meanwhile the very first Battlefield players were restricted to only being able to zoom in just a little more than usual.
A staple of the franchise has always been the ability to alter the battlefield by destroying buildings. While most of the destruction within earlier games was fairly limited, Battlefield V hopes to make to expand on the feature like never before.
Battlefield V is set to arrive on November 20th for PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4.
