The release date for Battlefield 5 was delayed until November 20th earlier this year and DICE are looking to compensate players for their patience with the game.
DICE will be giving away two cool in game items as long as you sign in to the new game in the first week that it is released.
Check out this tweet from Oskar Gabrielson who is the General Manager at DICE explaining the situation.
Today we were going to launch #BattlefieldV, but as you know we pushed the release a month to get extra time for polish and act on all the feedback you’ve given us. You’ve been super patient with us and as a token of our appreciation, our team built a small gift. Check it out! pic.twitter.com/q1kyUtXh6c

The Oscar Mike Helmet and Oscar Mike Emblem will be available to all those who sign in during the time period.
The fans seem to be happy with the out come of the freebies.

And some others are obviously not so happy.
I dont mean to be a grumpy old man but why would i want to claim an item that everyone else will be wearing at the same time. I like being an individual and not a clone. Thanks but no thanks ill stick to the default visualization until i find a rare micro transaction that i like.

This year, just like every year, Battlefield will have a single player campaign along with the new battle royale mode called Firestorm. Many gamers are wondering whether the fact that Battlefield has a single player campaign whereas Call of Duty doesn’t will help Battlefield sell more copies this year.
Battlefield 5 has already come under some fire when the online beta was opened as there were some strange chat filters implemented in the game.
According to reddit, The chat filter in the battlefield beta blocks a lot of weird words.
– the word nazi. In a gam about killing nazis.
– the word “dlc” but NOT “free dlc.” Free has to come first.
– “White man”. Tho any other color of man is permitted.

Lets hope they sort that out before the full game gets released.
Will you be picking up Battlefield 5 or are you into this years Call of Duty?
