DICE made a showing at EA’s “Play” Press Conference earlier today by bringing forth some new Battlefield 1 footage showcasing more of the game as well as describing the improvements to the series this time around. The trailer itself kicked off with a “Fury”-esque scene focused on an overrun British Mark IV tank, a technical showcase of it’s standard “In-Game Footage”

The rest is the typical cacophony of noise and image of multiplayer dogfights, bayonet charges, rushes, motorcycles, and even horses! You can check out the trailer for yourself below.

The highlight in the trailer though is it’s focus on the huge Zeppelin which similar to the “Levolution” events from Battlefield 4 and Hardline showcase the, “[…]the largest fully player-controlled vehicles ever seen in Battlefield.” Known in the game itself as Behemoths, they can take any form from trains on the ground to the battleships of the sea.

Destruction in the game is pushed to the max as both intuitive destruction and dynamic weather gives each game and level a player plays a different feel each time. Blow down walls and buildings (ala Bad Company) to create new paths to battle, all while fighting in the calm sun one minute and heavy rain the next!

The best part is the elongation of a typical player match in the new “Operations” mode. Described as a, “[…]a series of interconnected battles across multiple fronts. Play a sequence of battles where your actions have consequences beyond a single match, as you try to conquer territory or push back your attackers.”

Can’t wait for the release to play? Ensure that you pre-order the game or sign up for the Battlefield Insider for a Open Beta this summer, those who do so can also earn some exclusive in-game rewards.

Battlefield 1 will be released worldwide on October 21st across all platforms as well as EA Access & Origin Access for early play. As part of a promotional deal between Microsoft and EA, DLC and other perks will come first to the Xbox One.
