Battlefield 5 has just leaked onto the net, except it's not exactly the fifth sequel--DICE's new FPS will actually be called Battlefield 1, and it'll release in October.


The new World War 1-based Battlefield game will release on Tuesday, October 18, 2016 according to freshly leaked in-store promos. The artwork advises gamers to "pre-order the Hellfighter pack" and clearly lists the release date.

Battlefield 1's artwork was accidentally leaked on the Xbox One storefront, along with a bunch of the same in-store promos. The game is expected to take place in an alternate World War 1 timeline, and the art shows obvious ties to the era along with what appears to be a zeppelin in the upper right-hand corner. DICE and EA are set to unveil the game today at 4PM during a live stream, and devs will be on hand to reveal new info about the WW1 shooter.
