Release Date - October 21st, 2016 (October 18th via pre-order)
So, a running commentary;
- DICE hired some participants of the Community Test Environment (CTE) for development on new titles, mimicking other studios such as 343 Industries and Blizzard.
- The game was named Battlefield 1 because of the setting, the First World War.
- Close combat will be far more brutal and visceral; the game is described as by far the most gritty Battlefield game yet. Battles are described as tense, where your every action will matter, and will affect the world around you massively, turning pristine landscapes into hellish death zones.
- The game will be set all over the world, including the Western Front, the Alps, the deserts of Arabia and more!
- Cavalry charges! Tanks! Mustard gas!
- Some of the largest vehicles DICE has ever built.
- Beautiful melee weapon variety; swords, trench clubs, maces, bayonets, axes, shovels, knuckle dusters, knives and even your fists.
- There's a huge variety of vehicles to choose from; scout planes, bomber planes, light and heavy tanks, battleships, horses, artillery pieces and much more.
- Campaign will tell the stories of several different characters, how the war changes them and how they react to the war.
- Want to lug your entire squad around in your tank? Yep, you can do that. Tanks are to be feared again.
- Huge variety of weapons and gadgets; weapon customisation will be making a return, with a "new flavour" coming to the system.
