The USSR appears to be absent in "Battlefield V - Official Launch Trailer"



The existence of the USSR in BFV also has never been mentioned in any article before the release. Will it be added in to the game through DLC or will the game become another "Commie Haters Edition" like most Call of Duty products?

    I'm sure they will be added since they were a major country in WW2. They will be added eventually through the tides of war. The launch content for the game starts in 1940.

    If Live Service model doesn’t flop, we will see USSR in summer-autumn, 2019.

    However I am not sure who will be added first - US/Japan or USSR.

    Remember that the vast majority of people who play shooters are Americans.

    Americans fully believe WW2 was the USA vs the entire Axis alone.

    I doubt most Americans even can point to Russia on the world map

    Irony of this being that Russia has been in every single bf besides Vietnam now suddenly it's outrage that they aren't in bfv at launch

    Where would Russia be in Norway, Western Europe and North Africa?

    When the Eastern Front drops you see them
    Actually, Russia was in Norway.

    USSR wasn't in the war until 1942.

    Maybe in your country wrong history books? Open Wikipedia on the date of June 22, 1941 and see an event - the German attack on the USSR, the beginning of the Great Patriotic War.

    In their history books there was no "World War 2", there was "The Great War between Germans and Soviet Union".

    Maybe your wiki is wrong? Joking =)
    First of all, RUSSIA did not participate in WW2 NEVER. Soviet Union did. USSR. Period.
    Second, Official date is 22 June 1941. USSR has took some action in 1939 in Poland against 3rd Reich, but that's not the year when USSR OFFICIALY entered WW2.

    History lesson mode off =)
    In their history books there was no "World War 2", there was "The Great War between Germans and Soviet Union".
    It's Великая Отечественная война - The Great Patriotic War. No any "between" or anything.
    And the translation of "Отечественная" as "Patriotic" doesnt show the depth of the meaning.
    Sarcasm is no good in such topic.

    Dont let modern politic turn over facts. This was the war everyone with everyone for common peoples. Everyithing else were backrooms games.

    They did actually join the war in 1939 when they invaded Poland alongside Germany and split the country in half.

    I still think they'll be released later this year and hopefully before the USA comes into the game, if they wish to truely do it chronologically.

    USSR wasn't in the war until 1941.

    17th Sept 1939 when they invaded Eastern Poland, 16 days after the Germans had previiusly invaded, in a preplanned attack agreed with Germany during the Molotov-Von Ribbentop agreement.

    They're not JOIN the WW2. They JOIN the war when they officially announce this. 22 June 1941
    17th September 1939 armed conflict happened on Poland land. It wasnt joining the war. Only after USSR borders were crossed.

    Just to put it into perspective, you're explaining to a russian guy what russian term for WW2 is.

    @VietMint the USSR is still sitting quiet in half of Poland with the von Ribbentrop non-aggression pack still in place at this time.

    And then Germany invaded USSR the 22 June 1941.
    This invasion is called "Operation Barbarossa".

    USSR played only a minor role in WWII, so they were left out. It's true.
