Previously, I wrote about my expectations for mobile gaming trends in 2021. Since mobile phones are becoming powerful thanks to better SoC (System On Chip), we can play games that require more hardware. Now, EA has announced to bring Battlefield series for smartphones. For those unfamiliar, Battlefield is a very popular gaming franchise. Battlefield games are first-person shooters that first came out in 2002. Now, it is available on PC, Microsoft Xbox, and PlayStation consoles.
All-new game for smartphones
Now, the question which arises is whether the upcoming Battlefield game will be a port of the existing game or it will be entirely a new game. This question was answered by Oskar Gabrielson, the general manager of DICE himself. According to him, “Make no mistake, this is a standalone game. A completely different game from the one we’re making for console and PC, designed specifically for the mobile platform. It’s being built from the ground up by iToys to make Battlefield-on-the-go a reality and you can expect a fully-fledged, skill-based experience.”
It is great news that we will be getting an entirely new Battlefield game on smartphones. For now, we have COD: Mobile which is a great shooter game. It has more than 100 million downloads. However, Battlefield will take advantage in single-player mode. Mostly the campaign of Battlefield games is very interesting which gives it an edge over shooter games. The game is set to release in 2022 which is a long time. But the wait makes sense considering it’s an all-new Battlefield game.
Apart from the new Battlefield mobile game, the developers are also going to launch Battlefield 6 for major platforms. The game looks promising just like any other Battlefield game. According to DICE boss Oskar Gabrielson, the new Battlefield game is now ‘in daily playtesting.’ What are your opinions on Battlefield mobile game? Let us know in the comments section below!
