DICE isn't new to the live service model that keeps players together with free content. Star Wars Battlefront II has been doing that since late a year ago, and recently launched the Han Solo season, bringing even more maps, modes, and customization options to players.
Here are some high resolution screenshots from the game that reveal tantalising clues into Battlefield V's story line and game play. "Our vision with Battlefield V is to let players explore new and untold sides of the conflict that shaped the modern world", said Oskar Gabrielson, General Manager, DICE.
Players that pre-order any edition of the "Battlefield V" game with the "Battlefield V" Enlister Offer will get early access to the game's open beta and other in-game benefits including soldier customization options, access to Special Assignments starting at launch week and immediate access to five weapons to use in "Battlefield 1", EA announced during the game's unveiling Wednesday. "The scale of each battle and level of immersion is unlike anything we've done before in Battlefield and players are in for an epic journey".

Dice has confirmed it will reveal more information about the game - including a first look at Grand Operations - during the EA Play event ahead of gaming convention E3 at the beginning of June.
"There will be no premium pass, all players will have access to the same maps and modes, keeping the community unified as they progress through Battlefield V".
Curiously, BFV doesn't seem to have a battle royale mode.
As for any tidbits about characters or settings, we mostly have speculation.
The company explains that Battlefield 5 will be set in the lesser known regions during the second World War, including Rotterdam.

Grand Operations will make their debut within the game, a variation of Operations that promises to wrap around the World War II story. Deluxe Edition owners will gain early access on October 16, Origin Access and EA Access subscribers will receive a Play First trial on October 11. Dice is not going to release a premium pass for Battlefield V and all players will get access to all multiplayer maps after launch.
