Battlefield 1 caused quite some waves when Electronic Arts showed off a trailer for the game last month, alongside Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare. While the latter received almost 3 million dislikes on its YouTube channel, the former soared to popularity with nearly 40 million views, 2 million likes and only 33,000 dislikes. Now, EA has shown off another gameplay trailer for Battlefield 1, which showcases some intense battle scenes.
The upcoming game uses the same game engine, Frostbite, that will also be utilized in FIFA 17. Battlefield 1 is set to take players back to World War 1, with cinematic scenes of horses, hand-to-hand combat and mustard gas being shown throughout the trailer. Battlefield Global Community Manager Dan Mitre had the following to say:
It’s the epic scale and the all-out war experience. That balance between combat on the land, sea, and air helps create crazy rock/paper/scissors gameplay you just can’t get anywhere else. And destruction. Always destruction.
Battlefield 1 is set to launch on Xbox One, PlayStation and PC on November 21, 2016. The game is also scheduled for a public beta some time soon, but details haven't been revealed as of yet. If you are a member of EA Access on Xbox One or Origin Access on PC, you will be able to play the game before launch, and will receive a 10% discount when you purchase the game.
