Battlefield V and the SOUNDS OF WAR


War is terrifying, War is horrifying, And what’s more,
the sounds of war are truly unsettling. And Battlefield V manages to capture
all of these emotions using just it’s audio. It gives to players the smallest insight into what
life on the battlefield might have been like in WWII. DICE’s attention to detail is unmatched
when it comes to audio design. Whether it’s the vehicles, weaponry, or the callouts, Every sound in Battlefield V works
to bring the experience to life. Here are some of our favorite sounds from
DICE’s latest entry into the beloved franchise: Imagine you are in the heat of battle,
and here a whirring engine in the distance, It begins getting louder and louder as it approaches your position, And then suddenly, silence. This is possibly the most terrifying sound
in Battlefield V. Not the whirring,
but the deafening silence of nothingness. Because the silence is
what happens before the explosion. The V1 rocket was a marvel in the second world war, Wreaking havoc on London without risk
to the German soldiers manning the aircraft. In Battlefield V, the sound of this self-guided rocket
has been lovingly recreated, To instill fear into the hearts of all players. After the silence comes the teeth-shattering explosion. For those players lucky enough to be further away, The flash of fire will occur first, And then a fraction of a second later,
an ear-splitting boom will wash over the battlefield. Pick a sound a plane is likely to make in war. Whether you know its name or not, You’ve probably picked the banshee-like scream
of the Stuka. The Junkers Ju 87 was a German dive-bomber
that excelled in one thing, Destruction. However,
it’s not the destruction that the Stuka is known for, It’s the piercing screech as the plane nosedives towards the ground. There are few sounds in Battlefield V
that will send a player scrambling for cover Like the anguished howl of the Stuka diving in for a bombing run. Difficult to learn, and even tougher to master, Morse code has been around
for as long as there have been wars. In Battlefield V,
whenever the player sends out a squad order, The communication will be sent out using Morse code. It might be a little detail in Battlefield V, But it’s the little audio details we love. It wouldn’t be a Battlefield game without the best and most detailed weapons in gaming. No other game comes quite as close as DICE,
when it comes to staying close to the source material. Especially when weapons are concerned. No matter what class you opt for in Battlefield V, The weapons you’ll be using
sound just as they did 70 years ago. The StG 44 has a rapid-fire power behind it. While the MP40 sounds like it’s spitting out more lead than it knows what to do with. Then there’s the powerhouse that is the Bren Gun, Hearing this gun slamming out rounds
across the battlefield, Will make any player question
the strength of the wall they are hiding behind. Players who like to score headshots across the map aren’t left behind. As the sniper rifles in Battlefield V sound just as ferocious. The Kar98k, Although it lacks some of the finesse of other sniper rifles, Is one of the most pleasant weapons to use. The sliding of the bolt through the mechanism, and the reverberating sound of the bullet are glorious to hear. …unless you’re on the wrong side of the rifle. Battlefield V ups the ante for what players should expect from the historical shooters, As the sound design is some of the best in recent years. Though it can get a bit hectic in the heat of battle, Take a moment to listen to the love and dedication DICE has poured into making every sound so real, And true to history.
