The latest trailer was shown off at EA E3 press conference, EA Play, and it showcases the vast amount of options for the game. You can check out blimps being blown up, soldiers climbing in tanks, close quarters combat with shovels, and much more. EA stated that all this and more will take part in the massive world of Battlefield 1.
The interesting thing about the trailer is the transition to air combat. It was a question if this would be included in the game because WWI wasn’t really well known for air combat, and it was more along the lines of radar. Instead players will be duking it out on the air, and come close to the ground.
The trailer also shows the destruction included in the game with a house made of wood being totally blown up.
There is also a new overall EA program that will be included in Battlefield 1.
Operations introduces a completely new way to play multiplayer. In Battlefield 1 you will play a series of interconnected battles across multiple fronts. Play a sequence of battles where your actions have consequences beyond a single match, as you try to conquer territory or push back your attackers.
As for those blimps:
At those times when you feel all is lost, call in the Behemoths – the largest fully player-controlled vehicles ever seen in Battlefield. Roam the battlefield and rain fire on your enemy to break their defenses. All-out war never felt so epic. Take control of the Armored Train, Air Ship, or the Battleship to dominate the battlefield across land, air, and sea.
The game will hit beta “sometime this summer” and you have to be a part of the Battlefield Insider program to get in.
The game is set for an October 21st release date, which is interesting because Titanfall 2 is scheduled for the same month.
