As expected DICE and Electronic Arts spent a lot of E3 2016 discussing Battlefield 1. The publisher even released the first Battlefield 1 E3 trailer for fans to devour during the event. The developers promised more destruction and new, dynamic weather in the new game. These are just a few of the new variables that are set in the matches to make sure “no battle is ever the same,” according to the announcements.
Players will be able to cut through walls and buildings and cause “intuitive destruction” across the ever changing landscape. The publisher teased, “Through your actions, the pristine world around you will change into a battle-scarred landscape, changing the world forever.”
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.
Players will also have the chance to call in the Behemoths, the largest fully player-controlled vehicles ever seen in Battlefield. Players can roam the battlefield and rain fire on their enemy to break their defenses. “All-out war never felt so epic,” the developer states, with an Armored Train, Air Ship, and a Battleship on-hand to help players win the war.
“With Battlefield 1 we’re looking to deliver the most dynamic shooter ever. We want to make sure that no battle is ever the same for the players, and with the introduction of Operations, we’re giving the fans variety for game play and creativity,” said Aleksander Grøndal, Senior Producer, DICE. “Plus, with the new Behemoths, only in Battlefield 1 can you bring an Air Ship to a dogfight.”
