Battlefield 5's Setting Seemingly Revealed by Xbox One Dashboard Image

It looks like we're going back in time, not to the future.


Ahead of its reveal later today, the new Battlefield game's setting has seemingly been leaked by an advertisement on the Xbox One's dashboard.

Based on the weapons, attire, and zeppelin, it appears the next game is going back to the early 1900s. A World War I-era game was among those rumored to be the setting for the game. Whether it's a historically accurate game or one that offers some kind of twist on reality remains to be seen.

The image above can currently be seen in the Community area of the dashboard under the Trending on Xbox section, GameSpot has verified. It's used to advertise the upcoming livestream that is set to offer the first official details on what is likely to be called Battlefield 5. An accidental tweet from EA earlier today suggested that will indeed be the name.

DICE and EA's official reveal is set to take place today at 4 PM PST. You can watch it here.
