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.
Massive all-out war game with stunning graphics and gameplay. It really shows you how the war was with lots of different weapons and vehicles. The only that that is down in this game is short single-player mode, but the multiplayer covers it all. I suggest everyone to play this game and give it a shot, because Battlefield 1 is worth it 100%. I can say that this game is one of the best games of 2016. Dice didn't fail on this one and the hype was worth it. I give it a 5stars because this game is simply "essential" and it fulfilled my expectations!
As someone who enjoys the Battlefield series casually, this isn't really scratching that itch. It just feels like a reskin. BF1 does this very half-assed version of WW1, which isn't a period that's often depicted in games so it's pretty cool that DICE did this, but I was hoping something a tad more authentic. Overall with the additions to this era, like tanks and machine guns that didn't really exist back then(yes I know there are some exceptions) but here everyone has them, and I guess it's to speed things up and make it fun. But it just makes me question why make a WW1 setting at all? They could've gone all the way with some interesting retro futuristic steampunk setting, which the tanks already kind of are. WW1 is cool and all but there's 0 point in having it, they're not going far enough into it to have it matter, they're not portraying it with any kind of authenticity but also the variety in weaponry is reduced because they still wanted to kinda resemble the era, it all just feels like it's there for the sake of marketing strategy. Otherwise it feels like BF4 a bit too much. BF4 was a nice upgrade over BF3 and the team who supported it for so long after the launch deserves a medal for making it as great as it is. BF1 feels like a step backwards and needs still more time and the kind of attention BF4 got after launch to truly become great. Overall this is just an average shooter, it's Battlefield 4 reskin without the polish or amount of content for the most part so take from that what you will.
There are like 3 games i can think of, that is about the first world war, and none of them are good. At least, they weren't until now. Battlefield one is from that era, and while it doesn't seem historically accurate at all (some of the weapons feel too advanced) it is really fun, and a refreshing shooter, after the regiments of modern shooters. As always, you need to work together with your squad here. On your own, you're worthless here, when facing a tank, an aeroplane, or a squad of eight soldiers. The new old vehicles are pretty rad by the way. The landship is just sick. Even sicker than the horses in Skyrim. The WWI planes...oh boy...I have no idea how some people can fly them so well. They look really cool when i fly, but if you want to shoot me out of the sky, you have to hurry before i crash on my own.
First of all if you have played any of the other battlefields, this game is different with a few similar aspects. In my opinion they took the right step into the WW1 theme. Pros Great Graphics and well optimized. Realistic in most ways possible for a video game to be in order for it to be any fun. Big maps and up to 64 players per server, although it might get bigger who knows. Cons Too many ways to play cheap Spawning is a big issue, e.g spawn right next to the war train when clicking to spawn on objective. Plenty of weapons to choose from but unlocking any decent ones requires hours of grinding. No real accomplished feeling from leveling up as you don't unlock anything that way. In all its an average game out of a sold out franchise that is just making these games for money and not caring much about the community. But it is a fun game don't get me wrong, if you have a good squad or friends to play with then you will have a reasonable time. If you have the insane amount of money that these greedy bastards ask for then buy it like I did, otherwise your money is better in your pocket than in the long beaks of EA
Battlefield 1 is probably one of the best in the series. These days, so many FPS games are set in the present or future, and the go to historical war is almost always WWII, but I'll even say that WWI was a more interesting war, and it's good that it's finally been brought to the spotlight with this game. It has great graphics, interesting weapons and vehicles, and a wide variety of maps and the all new operations mode. Operations involves a long game spread across several maps, with one side eventually winning by either capturing the land or repelling the enemy invasion. All in all a great game which does have a bit of a sniper problem on some maps
