EA and DICE unveiled another trailer for Battlefield 1 during their E3 Press Conference earlier today, and it looks like we’ll get the chance to pilot the largest player-controlled vehicles the franchise has ever seen this Fall.
Known as “Behemoths,” players will be able to turn the tide of battle by taking control of an Armored Train, Air Ship, or Battleship and “dominate the battlefield across land, air, and sea.” DICE will also introduce smarter destructible environments and dynamic weather in Battlefield 1:
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.
A brand new multiplayer mode, “Operations,” will also make its debut in Battlefield 1. According to DICE, “Operations” is a “series of interconnected battles across multiple fronts,” and players will be able to “play a sequence of battles where your actions have consequences beyond a single match.”
Battlefield 1 will be released for the PC, PS4, and Xbox One on October 21. Also keep your eyes peeled for the game’s Open Beta, which will be held sometime this Summer.
