Reveal Date for Next Battlefield Game Announced As Fans Finally Solve Easter Egg Puzzle

The reveal date for the next Battlefield game has been announced – but it took fans an incredibly long time to work out the easter egg which lead to the reveal date.

In typical video game hype-creating fashion, Battlefield devs teased players of Battlefield 1 with an easter egg, which would eventually lead to the announcement of the next game in the series.

Way back in March 2017, a new map called Fort Vaux was released and in it was the so called “Zombie Door”, which remained locked until finally easter egg hunters worked out the method to having it open.

Once inside, they discovered that listening to water which was dripping from pipes was in fact morse code, and it spelled out ea.com/neverbethesame.

Of course upon visiting the website, players were greeted with nothing but a blue screen with the date May 23rd, 2018 #battlefield.

There were also links below to share the message “On May 23, Battlefield will never be the same.” to Twitter and Facebook.

Alongside the social media post is a rather nondescript painting of a horse, which seems to be the first teaser image for the upcoming game.

Of course riding horses has been a feature in previous Battlefield games, so it’s not exactly clear what the ‘never be the same’ slogan is referring to.

This painting of a horse is attached to social media posts of the reveal date.

So all we know so far is that fans will find out more about the next Battlefield instalment on May 23rd – which happens to be a week after the game’s biggest rival Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 will reveal (on May 17th).

The rumor currently is that it will be Battlefield V, although hints that a reveal trailer would be coming out this week look to have been proven wrong.

EA SPORTS is on the brink of announcing FIFA 21 Rulebreakers Team 2, which goes live on October 30, and some players have been leaked ahead of time. 

Coming into the Halloween season, FUT fans were expecting Ultimate Scream to make a triumphant return for the fourth year in a row. Instead, EA blindsided everyone with an all-new FIFA 21 promo: the “Rulebreakers” event.

The first team was stacked full of swapped stars too. Harry Kane’s monster pace upgrade was the headline, but other boosts ⁠— Dries Mertens, Douglas Costa, and Radja Nainggolan among them ⁠— turned older FUT cards into terrifying FIFA 21 beasts.

The second half of the Halloween promo, Rulebreakers 2, is set to drop later this week  ⁠— here’s everything we know about the second boosted squad so far.

Lukaku wasn’t happy about his FIFA 21 rating on his base card, but it looks like he’s about to get a Rulebreaker.

A few players appear to have been leaked ahead of team for FIFA 21 Rulebreakers Team 2, and it looks like great news for fans of the Premier League, La Liga, and Serie A again.

According to fut.investments on Instagram, who has been bang on now for weeks, the following will feature:

  • Romelu Lukaku
  • Toni Kroos
  • Sergio Aguero

This will be a huge boost for Man City supporters, as Aguero suffered significant pace downgrades for the release of EA’s flagship title. Now, given that Kane was boosted heavily in Team 1, it looks lik the little Argentine is next.

When will “Rulebreakers 2” be released?

Rulebreakers 2 is just over the horizon now ⁠— if the in-game dates EA SPORTS has already loaded into the Ultimate Team backend are correct, the second half of the Halloween promo team should arrive on Friday, October 30 (6pm BST). 

This new team should stick around for a week. That means any special packs, challenges, and promo deals that hit Ultimate Team will last until November 6.
