Andrew Boss from Electronic Arts spoke to investors and confirmed that Battlefield 2018 will have a single-player campaign. While it looks like Activision is getting rid of single player in Black Ops IV, DICE is not going that route. They saw how disastrous this was in Star Wars Battlefront and the immense fan backlash and quickly rectified it in Battlefront II, including a compelling campaign filled with levity and depth. Not everyone wants to just play online. Many would like a choice. DICE and EA is recognizing this. DICE is allegedly developing a Battle Royale prototype, but whether this will be used in Battlefield 2018 is yet to be seen. “With our next Battlefield game, the team at DICE is bringing the intensity of combat to life in new and unexpected ways. Every battle is unique, and every mode brings its own challenges – from the way you interact with the environment around you, to compelling single-player stories, to the next level of large-scale multiplayer that spans across multiple maps and modes. “This will be a deep and fully-featured shooter and ongoing service that will evolve with major new experiences for our community, beginning right from launch. Building on the success of Battlefield 1 and taking inspiration from DICE’s core DNA, this new game will advance the state of the art for the franchise, while still delivering the signature gameplay and Battlefield moments that have captivated and grown our global community.“ Single-player campaigns are a staple of high-quality first-person shooters. Wolfenstein II didn’t even have multiplayer and it was one of the greatest shooters of all-time. Battle Royale is fun, but if the rumors are true and companies are ditching campaigns in favor of Battle Royale modes, the fad is out of control.
