Battlefield 5: 9 Reasons Fans Should Be Worried

9. EA's Tendencies


Let's get the obvious out of the way. This is EA we are talking about. And whilst it seems almost trivial to mention it, anything with their name attached must be taken with a grain of salt until all the information is in the consumer's hand.

We still don't know much about the game's DLC plan, which as fans will know, raises a lot of red flags. With a propensity for overindulging in shady DLC schemes, EA isn't exactly comforting people by keeping such details in the dark.

That, and EA seem to care universally about the bottom line, whether it helps the consumer or not. With Star Wars Battlefront 1, it was DLC. With Battlefront 2, it was lootboxes. EA have a track record of doing something to milk money out of fans, only to retrofit those greedy problems in the next game.

The question really isn't whether or not they will do something, but rather what is the crux of the game this time?


I like video games, writing and writing about video games. Expect sarcasm and the dry wit of a Brit. And the occasional rant of a unhappy Scot. You know... the usual.
