DICE, an Electronic Arts studio, has announced Battlefield 1. The game is set against the backdrop of World War 1, allowing players to witness the birth of modern warfare, as the Great War saw a furious arms race with new machines and weapons created to get the upper hand during the most technologically divergent war of all time.
Battlefield 1 takes advantage of this modern arsenal with the aim of delivering an experience fans love, but with a fresh and modern twist. Take on a tank while on horseback or squad-up with your allies in epic multiplayer battles with up to 64 players. In Battlefield 1 no battle is ever the same thanks to ever-changing environments.
Battlefield 1 will take players across multiple and varied locations. From tight urban fights in a besieged French city, to big open spaces in the Italian Alps and frantic combats in the deserts of Arabia, discover a world at war through an adventure-filled campaign.
In a true multiplayer sandbox experience, take to the skies and engage in high-octane dogfights through treacherous landscapes, or have a battleship obliterating the coast from the sea, and engage in some of the biggest battles ever seen as empires clash for supremacy.
