Battlefield 1 gets a single player trailer
The Battlefield blog post also explained who of the stories players will experience.
One example is the War Story Through Mud and Blood. It takes place late in the war and centers on a British Mark V Tank crew. The story focuses on a young soldier assigned to the crew as the tank’s driver. However, our protagonist has no experience of these modern war vehicles and need to learn – and learn fast. Our hero is also struggling with earning the trust of his fellow crew members, so there’s a social dynamic in the story, making the whole thing something personal. Danny Edwards, our driver character, is not an ace sniper. He’s not a crack pilot. He’s not a demo expert. He’s a former chauffeur – a volunteer new to the war. He can drive and he can fix things. That’s where we start.
Another story will involve what the blog post calls, “A romantic and somewhat controversial character, Lawrence of Arabia”. Thomas Edward Lawrence is one of the most iconic World War I names and personally, I am glad to see his story told in Battlefield 1. Before the release of Battlefield 1, I recommend watching the movie about his endeavour. The movie is titled Lawrence of Arabia, and despite the fact it was released in 1962, it is a fantastic watch. Frankly, I didn’t know much about the character until I sat down and watched the movie with my dad. Although, fortunately, or unfortunately depending on your perspective it seems as though you won’t be playing as the legendary British officer, but as an Arab rebel who is depicted as Lawrence’s right hand.
Battlefield 1 will be available on October 21st, for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Windows PC.
