We’ve been waiting quite some time to get a firsthand look at the story campaign for Battlefield 1. The single-player mode has been kept under wraps by DICE and Electronic Arts all throughout the promotional run for the game… until now.
While we don’t actually get to see any of the real single-player content, we do get to see snippets of gameplay interspersed between cinematic sequences showcasing the multiple main characters in the game. There’s an Arabian lady who obviously isn’t representative of today’s extremist mid-east religions since she doesn’t have acid thrown in her face or isn’t beheaded for posting on Facebook; we have some Austrians doing their thing; there are two pilots who seem to be having a jolly good time; there’s a black guy; there’s also a tank guy who always looks afraid… and I can’t blame him considering how gritty all of his scenes look.
You can check out the trailer for yourself below to see just how visually dynamic the game is.
I could be wrong but that pilot on the right in that one quick clip where they were standing in front of the plane smiling – he looks an awful lot like Troy Baker. I wonder if that’s Troy Baker? If IMDB was trustworthy I would check it out and see.
Anyway, the Arabian lady and Lawrence of Arabia seem to have an interesting tale. I’ mcurious how that will play out? I imagine it will be more adventure oriented compared to the more gritty, in-your-face segments featuring the other characters/
The whole tank part just looks grimy and dirty. It reminds me a lot of the movie Fury. There’s enough grit in those scenes that if you put Justin Bieber in the middle of it it just might be gritty enough to not make him look like a lesbian pretending to be a pre-teen boy.
I’m curious how long each of the single-player segments will be, though?
With nine maps out of the box I imagine that would allow for three of the groups to get three maps each, or they might narrow it down in a different way, segmenting off certain maps and having players go through them in sections, similar to Battlefield 4.
You won’t have to wait long to get your hands on Battlefield 1. The game is due for release on October 21st next month for the Xbox One, PS4 and PC.
