Set in the first World War, Battlefield 1 will have players take part in unforgiving battles across early 1900’s Europe, Asia, and North Africa through a variety of different game modes. Battlefield 1 includes a brand-new Operations system, where players will fight in a series of interconnected battles set across many fronts. Actions will have consequences beyond the initial matches, as players either try to capture or hold valuable land.
“DICE has set out to build the most immersive and dynamic Battlefield game ever, continuing to improve their dynamic multiplayer sandbox through ever-changing environments with intuitive destruction and dynamic weather,” stated the release.
EA Access and Origin Access members can try out the game for a limited time with the Play First Trial starting on October 13 for PC and Xbox One.
