Battlefield V will bring back War Stories. They were short story segments in Battlefield 1 that let the player take control of a character during a part of the World War. Each played a key role in the story and while the experience was short, it was still a nice change of pace from the traditional single player campaign.

Trever Noah will host the livestream along with Oskar Gabrielson, the head of DICE Stockholm, Andreas Morell, senior producer, Lars Gustavsson, creative director, and Daniel Berlin, design director. You can watch it live on the official Battlefield YouTube channel.
