Making a Battlefield game set during World War I has been a dream for a number of the developers at DICE, so for the past decade, many of them have been doing background research. They’ve been looking into the world, the events, and – importantly – the weapons.

Take a look at the inspiration and passion that went into the creation of the guns and gadgets Battlefield 1.

The weapons you’ll use in Battlefield 1 were, at one time, the peak of engineering, and inspired many of the powerful armaments used in modern warfare. They’ll still feel unique, though, and you’ll notice a definite difference between the machine guns in games like Battlefield 4 and the ones you’ll use in Battlefield 1. “It is a different experience,” explains Creative Director Lars Gustavsson. “It’s much more up-close and personal.”

You’ll be able to try the weapons for yourself when Battlefield 1 releases on October 21 (or October 18 if you pre-order the Early Enlister Deluxe Edition). Also, don’t forget to sign up for Battlefield Insider to get early access to the Battlefield 1 Open Beta.

Real life mode in Battlefield 1. A very cinematic experience playing with the HUD completely turned off and colour correction. View in 4K 60FPS for best quality and wear headphones.

battlefield-1Here’s a sneak beak.

By Tom Phillips @ Eurogamer

Some Battlefield 1 fans think there will be a pigeon mode in DICE’s World War 1 shooter.

Let’s be clear: there has been no official confirmation of a pigeon mode as yet. If there is one, DICE is keeping it firmly under flaps.

But take a look for a moment at the below video, originally published back in March. Specifically at the 1:50 minute mark, where… a Battlefield 1 pigeon mode is mentioned.

The video’s creator, AlmightyDaq, uses the video to divulge detailed Battlefield 1 information weeks before the game’s official announcement.

Included in the video are the game’s final name (well, either Battlefield 1 or Battlefield 1918, apparently), its World War 1 setting, details about its classes and early descriptions of its multiplayer maps.

A tweet from the Battlefield teases news about beta testing Battlefield 1, the upcoming World War I shooter. EA promises inside information for insiders, saying, There’s news coming about the #Battlefield 1 Beta. Become a Battlefield Insider so you don’t miss it.

You look into the distance and see planes torn apart by gunfire, their debris raining down over London. In war-torn France to the east, horrible armored tanks tear holes in walls as they roll through crumbling cities. To the south, past the burning Italian coast, men charge over the sand dunes of the Arabian Desert, armed to the teeth with the most powerful weaponry the world has ever seen. This is what the dawn of all-out war looks like, and it’s Only in Battlefield 1.

battlefield-1‘Empires fell. Teabags were invented’ – DICE on the brilliant Battlefield 1 – New Videos

By Martin Robinson @ Eurogamer

Battlefield 1, in case you had any doubt, is shaping up to be a fine video game, even if it’s a very familiar one. EA afforded us the chance to play it before the publisher’s E3 showcase, granting a quick 15-minute blast across the new map St. Quentin’s Scar in Battlefield’s trademark Conquest mode, with a full complement of 64 players. It’s a very impressive-looking game, bringing a heightened level of physicality to the series as players burst through doors or seamlessly transition into vehicles, and a new level of destruction as whole villages are levelled through the course of a match.

Following the hands-on, I caught up with Lars Gustavsson, creative director at DICE and a stalwart of the Battlefield series, to find out anything more I could about the new game.

battlefield-1Battlefield 1 Will Have Six Weapon Classes

Source:  PCGamesN

Battlefield 1 is heading back to the muddy murder fields of World War One, and that means an era where there weren’t quite the gazillion different guns that there are in the modern world. There will still be plenty of weapons to choose from in the game though, drawn from a pool of six types.

Available to use will be shotguns, SMGs, LMGs, semi-autos, sidearms, and sniper-rifles. Presumably ‘sniper rifles’ mean any kind of bolt-operated weapon, considering most standard infantrymen in WW1 were using non-scoped, manual rifles.

A short trailer shows some of those weapons in action, including a mace and a German LMG. It’s a mere 15 seconds though, but we’ll get a much better look at the game on June 12, when DICE will host a 64-player match at E3 to show off the game’s multiplayer.

Last week EA unveiled Battlefield 1, DICE’s new first-person shooter, with an explosive new trailer. It takes the series to World War 1, a war that saw the old clash with the new. So, from the muddy, mustard gas filled trenches we’ll see sword fights and bayonet charges and horse combat alongside tank battles, swooping biplanes and warships.

Battlefield 1, for example, revamps the series’ melee system, with the addition of a variety of different weapons each with their own stats. There’s also a class-based soldier system in play that even extends to vehicles. And what of the campaign? How is it different?

In an interview with Eurogamer, DICE producer Aleks Grondal was willing to answer some of these questions, and explain DICE’s decision to use World War 1 as a setting in the first place. Oh yeah, and why is it called Battlefield 1? Let’s find out.

The Battlefield website has the official announcement of Battlefield 1, a World War I first-person shooter coming to Windows, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One on October 21st, though the preorder page on Origin also lists a deluxe edition of the game that includes three days of early access among its perks. They offer an official reveal trailer showing the setting that some have argued would never be the subject of a AAA first-person shooter, and the following word:

You look into the distance and see planes torn apart by gunfire, their debris raining down over London. In war-torn France to the east, horrible armored tanks tear holes in walls as they roll through crumbling cities. To the south, past the burning Italian coast, men charge over the sand dunes of the Arabian Desert, armed to the teeth with the most powerful weaponry the world has ever seen. This is what the dawn of all-out war looks like, and it’s Only in Battlefield 1.

Battlefield 1 is releasing worldwide on October 21, 2016 for Xbox One, Origin on PC, and PlayStation 4 but you’ll be able to get your hands on it much sooner. More on that in a minute.

With Battlefield 1 we set out to create some of the largest, most dynamic battles in FPS history while continuing to tap into what fans love most about the franchise. One of the things that makes World War I such an amazing era is just how advanced it really was. Almost everything that you know about the conflicts of the next century, from the massive battles across land, air and sea, to the powerful and efficient weaponry, is there. Tanks, planes, machine guns, artillery – a lot of the tech you’ve used in other Battlefield games was perfected during this era, letting the classic Battlefield DNA shine through.

You’ll be able to join in massive 64-player battles and experience unexpected Only in Battlefield moments in a setting where the old world was destroyed, giving way to the new one. We’re turning destruction up a few notches too, so expect some surprises when you hit the battlefield.

If you’re eager to go hands-on with Battlefield 1 you won’t have to wait too long. During the EA Play events on June 12 in Los Angeles and London, we’ll reveal the first gameplay footage and let attendees try the game for themselves. Register and make your way to those events, and you’ll be able to play the game before pretty much anyone else.

EA Play won’t be your only opportunity to play before release, though. There will be more chances in the months that follow, including an Open Beta (which you can get into a little earlier if you sign up for Battlefield Insider). EA Access and Origin Access members will be able to play for a limited time before the release date, too. And if you pre-order the Early Enlister Deluxe Edition, you’ll be able to start playing on October 18, three days before the release date.
