Fasten your seat belts all you game addicts out there. The much-awaited Battlefield 1 is set to be unleashed within a few months. Being the fourteenth release in the Battlefield series, players have a general idea of what can be expected but that is only on general lines. Every Battlefield game has changed the gaming scenario and even after multiple releases, the hype of a new one hitting the consoles is always there.
The setting for Battlefield 1 is World War I as has been the previous entries but there are some innovations that have been brought in. The multiplayer can support an astonishing 64 players with an option to enter or leave the game servers in groups. There is an added degree of difficulty for single players as battlefield locations around the world like the Western Front, the Alps and Arabia have multiplayer maps. All eyes are on 18th October 2016, the Battlefield1 release date when the true picture will crystallize and emerge.
Celebrated game designer of Battlefield 1, Daniel Berlin has however hinted at a broader canvas and a host of new developments that are distinct from the previous versions. First, players will be able to control a number of characters in the campaign. Secondly, there will be different paths with multiple choices and options to reach and cross levels of competence. However, there are certain similarities too with past games to preserve continuity. These include customization of weapons and destructible environments. All these, of course, will be known for sure only on the Battlefield1 release date.
For the uninitiated, here are some Battlefield 1 news and a birds’ eye view of the game. It is set in the backdrop of World War I and is not entirely fictional – in fact, it has been woven into true-life historical events. Settings, locations and weapons of that period have been faithfully replicated in the game. Players have a choice of using automatic and semi-automatic rifles, bolt-action rifles, artillery, mustard gas and flame throwers to mow down opponents. Vehicle options are light and heavy tanks, battleships, vintage bi-plane aircraft and a variety of armoured vehicles.
Battlefield1 news is only slowly trickling in now. Addicts of the game will have to wait till 18th October 2016 for final confirmation of what’s in store for them.
