It’s been a few days now since the reveal trailer for Battlefield 1 was released by DICE. Battlefield has always been set apart from other FPS in that it allows players to use Land, Air and Sea based vehicles to tactically capture objectives or lay waste to the enemy. Battlefield 1 looks to be no exception. As a seasoned Battlefield fan, the big draw for me personally was and always will be the use of vehicles and how they’re implemented during a battle. Setting the game in the Great War gives a unique opportunity to get in and take control of some of the first truly terrifying weapons of War. Bring it on!
Only in Battlefield 1 will you bring a horse to a tank fight and squad-up with your allies in epic multiplayer battles with up to 64 players. Through ever-changing environments at the dawn of all-out war, no battle is ever the same.
Now the proverbial dust has settled, we can take a look at what else we can expect from the team behind one of the most successful War game franchises, ever.
Battlefield 1 takes you across multiple and varied locations in a bid to fight your way through immersive battles. From tight urban fights in a besieged French city, to big open spaces in the Italian Alps and frantic combats in the deserts of Arabia, discover a world at war through an adventure-filled campaign. In a true multiplayer sandbox experience, take to the skies and engage in high-octane dogfights through treacherous landscapes, or have a battleship obliterating the coast from the sea, and engage in some of the biggest battles ever seen as empires clash for supremacy.
Aleksander Grøndal, Senior Producer, DICE:
“The game will deliver a fresh experience full of what makes Battlefield great, with a multiplayer sandbox, immersion, epic scale, authenticity, team play and an ever-changing world full of unexpected Battlefield moments, We’re inviting players on an epic journey across a war-torn world, taking them to the Great War and providing something both varied and unique in Battlefield 1.”
Set against the backdrop of World War 1, witness the birth of modern warfare, as the Great War saw a furious arms race with new machines and weapons created to get the upper hand during the most technologically divergent war of all time. Feel the intensity and immersion as Battlefield 1 takes advantage of this modern arsenal to deliver the experience fans love, but with a fresh and modern twist.
