Today DICE and EA revealed the next edition to the Battlefield Franchise. Battlefield 1 will take players back to World War 1, players will be taken to different locations around the globe during the war. Horseback, hand to hand combat, tanks, blimps, the game seems to have it all. Players will also be able to use new and bigger vehicles that have never been featured before, DICE encourages players to play with friends/squadmates. DICE also states that they will not have “super weapons”, every weapon will have an equal counter so no one person can just destroy everyone.
Battlefield 1 is made to be immersive with beautiful landscapes that can be destroyed while in combat, everything becomes one with an “organic-dynamic experience”. Server jumping with your squad will be seamless and smooth, no matter what you are doing. New melee weapons can be expected as well, such as a mace and shovel. Bayonets will also be featured on some of the rifles. All sorts of ships, tanks, planes, and horses will be playable depending on where you are playing in the campaign mode.
Different perspectives of different characters will be experienced throughout the story mode, no details were specified but more information is to be revealed at a later date. Weapon customization will also be a feature added to this game, and yet again not many details were released.
This game will be released on October 21st, but can be gotten as early as the 18th if you preorder (not sure if it’s the standard game or a collector edition).
What do you guys think? Do you think this game will live up to the hype?
