Battlefield 1 is the latest game in the Battlefield franchise and they have taken a similar approach to their numbering as Xbox and gone with Battlefield 1 as their next iteration.
Despite its name though it is actually the 14th iteration of its franchise. It is set to be released later this year on October 21st, 2016. There has been numerous beta’s throughout the year as is common with new battlefields so a lot of gameplay has already been seen.
If you have played any of the other battlefield games you will know that it brings something different to the FPS (First Person Shooter) genre. Battlefield has much bigger maps than most but the maps are more adaptable. They’re adaptable in the sense that if there is a wall in your way…You blow up the wall. The physics engine behind battlefield allows you to destroy most walls and objects and if you destroy enough walls, the whole building will come down.
Along with being able to destroy buildings and literally tear up the map battlefield also comes with a host of vehicles that you can control and these vary from 4×4’s to Tanks. Tanks can assist in the destruction of everything but you have to remember to look out for other Tanks.
The maps on Battlefield are so big that if there was just 5 vs 5 you would get lost and there would be no action. EA, who are the team behind battlefield, have put a lot of thought into this and have changed the game a little bit. Battlefield 1 sports 64 player game modes. The fact that there are 31 other players on your team alone is a magnificent feat not alone there being another 32 on the opposing side that all want to kill you. These big numbers are great because you can jump into a game with a group of your friends or you can just get lost in the crowd of online comrades if you’re joining solo.
Due to the game not being fully released yet there aren’t many full reviews that would merit this section. Despite the game not being released yet though it has already been nominated for numerous awards and has actually already won the Best Action Game of 2016.
We are expecting to see big things come from this game when it releases next month and can’t wait to jump into the fight with 63 other online players.
