Electronic Arts and DICE are back in the driver’s seat after showing the word the first trailer for its newest game, Battlefield 1. This game is quite different from the others in the series and in general, from the type of first person shooters we’re getting today.
The difference between Battlefield 1 and other modern games such as Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare is the fact that it is not modern or set in the future. This game is all about bringing players into World War 1 and so there’s no jetpacks, fighter jets, or advanced weaponry. This is a game where players will only have basic weapons at their disposal.
When it comes to air combat, players can take advantage of biplanes to get rid of the enemies below. These things are not exactly the fastest, so it should be interesting to see how DICE manages to balance air combat with forces on the ground.
While the tanks in World War 1 won’t be as powerful as anything found in World War 2 or in modern times, they will be important for getting an entire squad from point A to point B. We’re likely to see something like this in the core multiplayer gameplay.
Don’t expect tanks to have massive guns similar to the ones in World War 2 — you’ll be disappointed. If you’ve played World of Tanks, then you should have an idea of what to expect.
As for the ground combat, be prepared to kick it in the trenches with only a few automatic weapons but a ton of one pop rifles.
Here’s the description of the game:
Take the battle from the scenic Italian coast to the scorching Arabian deserts. Discover classic Battlefield gameplay through an adventure-filled campaign, or squad up and join epic multiplayer battles with up to 64 players. Experience the origins of modern warfare where the old world was destroyed, giving way to the new one. Use the innovative, modern weaponry and vehicles of World War I as you battle across the land, air and sea. Make your mark on the battlefield with earth-shattering destruction, whether you’re blasting craters in the ground with artillery strikes or ripping apart walls with gunfire.
Xbox One and Windows PC players can jump in the battlefield before anyone else via EA Access. If you’re into games for your Windows 10 device, here are some of the best you should check out from the Windows Store.
