My first foray into first-person shooters with a heavy focus on strategy and mechanics began with the closed beta of Hell Let Loose, a World War II-era shooter developed by Black Matter and published by Team 17. Their project focuses more on the tactical and realistic aspects of firing a gun, more similar in scope to ARMA 3 and America’s Army than to something like Call of Duty.
Battlefield is returning to where it all started. The original Battlefield 1942 was set in WWII. Now, 16 years later, Battlefield V is again heading back to the second world war. While BFV had an alpha earlier this year on PC, this latest open beta is going to be the first time most fans will be able to finally get their hands on it.
