Battlefield 1 is the most talked about AAA title this time of year. Here are a few gameplay facts to get you into the hype train.
The upcoming first-person shooter is the fifteenth installment in the popular Battlefield series. It is the first Electronic Arts video game set in World War 1 since Wings of Glory in 1994.
The single player mode of Battlefield 1 features six story missions. These are Friends in High Places, Nothing is Written, Through Mud and Blood, The Runner, Epilogue and Avanti Savoia!
Tweaktown noted that the story missions range from Germans flying high on massive zeppelins to Arabs charging enemy lines on horseback. Each chapter highlights a lesser-known element of World War 1.
In Nothing Is Written, players assume the role of a Bedouin warrior working alongside the heroic Lawrence of Arabia. Through Mud and Blood lets players view the destruction on the battlefield as a messenger pigeon.
Players get to wreak more havoc in the game’s multiplayer component. Online modes include Conquest, Rush, Domination and Team Death Match.
The free for all skirmishes can be played on nine highly-destructible maps. Each battleground presents a different environment and gameplay details. They are as follows:

- Monte Grappa

- The St. Quentin Scar
