Battlefield 1 was the last game to appear at Electronic Arts' press conference. DICE boss Patrick Bach took the stageto reveal new details about the game and a new trailer.
With Intuitive descruction and dynamic weather, Bach wants to ensure that every battle in Battlefield 1 plays out differently. He stated that the players' actions will change the battle-scarred landscape, be it carving your own path or taking advatage of weather changes and adapt your tactics. In addition to a great variety of weapons and vehicles, players will also have at their disposal behemoths, ultimate vehicles that will allow you to roam the battlefield and rain fire on your enemy.
"Intuitive destruction and dynamic weather ensure that no battle is ever the same," said Electronic Arts. "For even more gameplay possibilities, carve a path through walls and buildings, take down your enemies in creative ways, and leave your mark on the terrain around you through intuitive destruction. Through your actions, the pristine world around you will change into a battle-scarred landscape, changing the world forever.
"With dynamic weather you will need to adapt your tactics to weather changes as the elements play a part in the battle. Playing the same map on a bright day, in heavy fog, or rain will impact what you see and hear, forcing you to adapt your play style on an ever-changing battlefield.
"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.
"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."
Electronic Arts has also revealed that an open beta for Battlefield 1 will begin this summer. You can sign up here to get early access to the beta.
Battlefield 1 releases on the 21st of October on PS4, Xbox One and PC.
