Yeah, Battlefiled V is more COD-ish than ever. And these blue face paint reminds me of the Braveheart all the time. I'm pretty sure I heard somewhere that there will be micro-transactions in Battlefiled V. Initially I though it will be in form of DLC, but if that is out of the picture and there will be no loot boxes, I think they will try to make more money selling cosmetics directly or they will introduce some in-game currency for that purpose which you will exchange for real $$$. Also EA is focusing more on a way to convert typical games to game as a service experience, what ever this means by EA standards. Many of theirs AAA titles land pretty fast in EA/Origin Access. Almost the is no point buying their games at launch. My guess is that they will try to get more steady income from subscriptions and micro-transactions, than just one time boost of cash from initial sales that vastly depends of title quality and its reception. They just bought a game streaming company as well. Also, about haft of the income for Activision-Blizzard was from micro-transactions in games last year. I bet EA want a piece of this cake as well.
