With a trailer that has yielded more ‘likes’ on YouTube than any other trailer before it, the excitement around Battlefield 1 couldn’t be more apparent. When watching the trailer for the first time, I immediately recognized the weaponry from World War I and admittedly, I was quick to find out that automated weapons were utilized well before I originally thought; a common misconception, actually. It’s obvious that Battlefield 1 will be not only a fantastic gaming experience, but a deeply rooted history lesson.
Battlefield 1 takes place across an assortment of locations around the world. From the Italian Alps to the Western Front, the war takes place on all terrains across the world. With dynamic weather and an ever-changing landscape, this will easily be the most realistic and immersive Battlefield experience yet. What better way to experience this than with your friends via the new online Squad System? Video games, overtime, have become just as much of a social outlet for me as they are a form of entertainment. A Squad System is an extremely welcome change and I can’t wait to progress through the ranks with my closest friends, regardless of where they live!
One very important detail to not overlook is that Battlefield 1 will be very organic in nature, especially as far as weapons and aiming functionality is concerned. I know that I’ve personally found an awful lot of comfort in mechanics such as aim-assist, so I’m very excited to revert back to a time where skill plays an incredibly huge role in the shooting mechanics.
While keeping the grand scale that Battlefield has always been known for, DICE has also done a fantastic job listening to and addressing the feedback of those who play their games. The environments in Battlefield 1, as well as the vehicles, all have heavy elements of destruction, even to the point where it’ll impact the capabilities of certain vehicles. It’s incredibly rewarding watching a World War I era airplane struggling to keep flight because of a damaged wing, all thanks to your incredible aiming efforts.
For those wanting to join the war early, The Battlefield 1 Early Enlister Deluxe Edition will allow you to play the game three days early! Everyone else can experience the newest Battlefield installment on October 21st.
