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.
It's a great game. The maps are beautiful and the missions and game options are varied and fun. Great game to play with friends. Downside is a lot of the better guns aren't accessible until you gain higher levels in specific classes. It really becomes a grind, and can get pretty frustrating during game play when other users have better guns than you just because they've played longer. If you can look past that, or take that as a challenge, then this game is great. I still enjoy this game, and play it once in a while with friends, but beware that the best guns aren't available until late game.
I've played this game for a while and enjoyed it so much i was willing to pay for its premium pass. The gunplay in the game is great and the overall gameplay is great minus the sometimes overwhelming grenade spam. The maps are mostly well thought out and can offer different experiences every time. The really main issue in the game is content, or the slow release of new content through premium pass at least. They're taking too long with the DLCs so be wary of becoming bored with the game in between releases.
The way there are transitions between lives in war, how you see through their eyes, now this is war. So far the handling of weapons and the way you turn them is slick. The impact of bullets are satisfying. But I had micro stutters on my GTX 680 not sure what that is but it disappeared when I replaced it with GTX Titan and reinstalled my graphics card driver. I kinda wasn't a big fan of previous Battlefields before but now if they keep this rhythm they'll be an even bigger blockbuster, better improve and listen to community feedback. So far it's a not bad experience.
I would deem Battlefield 1 as the best example of what a current generation video game can be. It is the pinnacle of the FPS genre. Until I see something come out that changes my mind, I don't see anything out there that even compares, and I don't even see anything on the horizon. I guess I will probably be waiting to see what DICE has up it's sleeve next. I hear they are highly focused on the new Star Wars Battlefront instalment, which after the last version, I'm more than skeptical. No need to worry though, Battlefield 1 has enough in it to hold me over for a very long time, and I'm looking forward to savoring every moment we spend together. Thanks DICE!
I have played nearly every battlefield from pc to console and back again. With that in mind I was hesitant at launch to get behind what I felt was a step backwards from BF4 (not gonna talk about BF Hardline). I did not want to resort to using older weapons and technology and the initial Beta did not help matters. However, after making the jump during a boring Thanksgiving weekend, I was quite surprised as to how little I missed from previous BF games. After over 100 hours played of just multiplayer I am still coming back for more! You will see though that I gave this game an 8/10 and that is because no game deserves a 10. There is no game that is perfect in every way. If there was, we'd all be playing it right now. The points subtracted are solely for the missing UI components that were greatly cherrished in the past few BF releases. The first missing component is the Battlelog that basically made it a must to game with my laptop right next to my xbox ro constantly switch and tweak loadouts midgame. The next missing component (which as of today's update has been fixed) is the exclusion of ribbons that gave me that extra bit of XP and confirmation saying to me that I WAS in fact doing well and progress is being made. If you are new to the BF series then my problems with the game should not be noted and simply ignored and which case, you have yourself a great single player campaign with a top notch multiplayer experience that others often try to emulate but none come close. To sum up, BUY this game. Enjoy it. And I'll see you on the battlefield.
