Battlefield 1: Trailer Released for Upcoming 1st-Person Shooter Set in World War I
Like its predecessors, Battlefield 1 will be a multiplayer-focused game, with 64-player battles that will take place in different locales around the world. But there will be a campaign as well, which will unfold from the perspectives of multiple characters.
Featuring a number of battles from throughout the conflict, developer EA Dice says it will offer vast environments, taking in trench warfare on the Western front, as well as combat in the Italian Alps, the deserts of Arabia and through besieged French towns. As usual, the game features weapons and vehicles accurate to the timescale, including the fighter planes and tanks that heralded a new era of mechanised warfare. Players will be able to ride horses, though its not clear whether there will be cavalry charges.
The video game, developed by EA DICE, was announced Friday and is expected to be released by publisher Electronic Arts on Oct. 21 for Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC.
