Battlefield™ 1 takes you back to The Great War, WW1, where new technology and worldwide conflict changed the face of warfare forever. Take part in every battle, control every massive vehicle, and execute every maneuver that turns an entire fight around. The whole world is at war – see what’s beyond the trenches.
Changing environments in locations all over the world. Discover every part of a global conflict from shore to shore – fight in besieged French cities, great open spaces in the Italian Alps, or vast Arabian deserts. Fully destructible environments and ever-changing weather create landscapes that change moment to moment; whether you’re tearing apart fortifications with gunfire or blasting craters in the earth, no battle is ever the same.
Huge multiplayer battles. Swarm the battlefield in massive multiplayer battles with up to 64 players. Charge in on foot as infantry, lead a cavalry assault, and battle in fights so intense and complex you'll need the help of all your teammates to make it through.
Game-changing vehicles. Turn the tide of battle in your favor with vehicles both large and larger, from tanks and biplanes to gigantic Behemoths, unique and massive vehicles that will be critical in times of crisis. Rain fire from the sky in a gargantuan Airship, tear through the world in the Armored Train, or bombard the land from the sea in the Dreadnought.
A new Operations multiplayer mode. In Operations mode, execute expert maneuvers in a series of inter-connected multiplayer battles spread across multiple maps. Attackers must break through the defense line and push the conflict onto the next map, and defenders must try to stop them.
Gamespot - "With Battlefield 1, EA and DICE have proven the viability of World War 1 as a time period worth revisiting in first-person shooters".
Time - "A stupefyingly gorgeous first-person shooter."
Polygon - "Battlefield 1 proves that sometimes you have to step backward to move something forward."
Yeah, we know Battlefield 1 isn't the first Battlefield game, what the 1 in the name actually means is that the game is set during WWI, one of the most grueling and unforgiving wars in history. When going back in time to around 100 years ago, the technology is sure to change too. Out goes the sleek aeroplanes and in comes horse riding, complete with saber in hand. In addition to the maps that have made the series famous, there's also a fully-fledged campaign mode.
Due to the variation in World War I, expect to traverse across a range of different maps like Arabia, the Western front and even the Alps! This is a fresh change away from the slew of "Modern" shooters and should offer players something new and fresh! Battlefield 1 is sure to be one to keep an eye out for.
Battlefield 1 turned out to be a game that managed very well with the WW1 subject and I have the impression that the formula of the series works best with such a setting. Like many others, I wondered if the game would not only be "Battlefront with the skins of World War I" but luckily this is not the case. Is this ideal? Certainly not, but its basic task was done perfectly - it provides players with pleasant and atmospheric entertainment in a historical plot we have not visited for quite a long time.
Battlefield 1 is a decent piece of work but it is noting great as some people are saying. I mean this game has a lot of flaws. And I mean a lot. Balance in the multiplayer Ok, I know htat DICE doesn't know how to do it in the PC verion of their games but this one is just terrible at it. You will see people with 120 to 2 stats in vehicles. And you will always see the same people in the same vehicle on the same maps. It is just bad. Lack of player Battlefield one is pretty much dead. Or at least it was two weeks ago before the 1 dlc was released as there were 0 players on some maps and in some game modes. Even with browser you couldn't find a game with a particular map with players not to mention getting people in some game modes. Lack of weapons. You get 4-5 weapons per class. Or even less and it only seems that there are many of them but in reality there are a few verions of the one gun and it changes nothing as you will probably use only a one version. The game is pretty poor when it comes down to the weapons actually. Map design. Map design is pretty bad. Because the maps do not have any differences between them or they want you to use specific class which is partially a balance fault. On the first look, it looks great but later on it is only getting worse. It;s not tragic, but it is not anywhere near good either. Overall I think that this game might be worth getting but for a much lower price than ?40 as it lacks a lot when it comes down to the content provided in game. For now it is better to don't buy it.
After nearly decade of FPS games based on future or modern wars we finally get a game which happen during World War. An excellent game. I've played Battlefield BC 2, 3 and 4 and in my opinion Battlefield 1 is the best. It is so realistic, animation of dressing gas mask, shooting in the trenches, riding a cavalry - in one word I can say that this is amazing. Multiplayer is great, especially "Conquest" where you play 32 vs 32 players on so big and varied maps. I used to be CoD fan, but this game has changed my mind. Best FPS of 2016!
Battlefield originally started as a game in which to experience War throughout history, as well as providing a sandbox-like experience for multiplayer fans. This newest instalment does the same, but bring even more depth and stunning visuals to World War I, which usually isn't the most discussed in regards to importance. The single player experience may not matter to many who are looking to buy this game, but I would implore anyone who enjoys experiencing different stories to give these "War Stories" a try. I found them to be particularly gorgeous and even made me stop and think about the sacrifices made by the brave men who fought in World War I. The multiplayer experience stays true to the battlefield name allowing players to drive all sorts of vehicles including planes, cars, tanks, trucks, boats, and etc allowing for the usual shenanigans the game is famous for. The shooting is satisfying as always, and the game even provides for an in-depth ranking system that keeps you coming back to be the bets on the leaderboard. The only big structure difference is the introduction of weapon "crates" and in turn, micro transactions of a sort. However I am willing to overlook this introduction because it only provides cosmetic items to players, and the crates can be earned by any players who put time into the game. Overall: This game is once again a great multiplayer shooter experience, allowing for you to play the way you want to, but also provides an in-depth single player option that allows for immersion into some of the soldiers in World War I.
I enjoy this game but a lot of the time it seems like you are spending more time in the menu screen than playing. It also really sucks when you are in the midst of battle fighting while your friend is in the back sniping and he doubles your score because he is out of danger.
