How to watch the Battlefield 5 reveal event

Hot on the heels of the Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 event last week, DICE and EA are gearing up towards a live reveal show for Battlefield 5, the next instalment in the acclaimed shooter series.

The event, streamed live to the internet across the world, will showcase new footage of Battlefield 5 in action, reveal the confirmed new setting following Battlefield 1's WW1 backdrop, and feature developers from DICE talking about what they have in store for players when the game launches later this year. 

Daily Show host Trevor Noah will be presenting, as announced by a tease-worthy video posted on his Instagram account, and DICE is promising that "Battlefield will never be the same", so it's safe to say that this is an event you're going to want to watch.
