Battlefield 1

Action 21 October 2016

Another full-fledged installment in one of the most popular series of war shooters played from the first-person view and developed since 2002, as the effect of cooperation between Electronic Arts and DICE. With its flamboyant title, Battlefield 1 introduces the series to the realities of the First World War. The story campaign depicts this global conflict through the eyes of several independent characters, who participate in twentieth-century's first modern military conflict. When it comes to the gameplay itself, the game reaches back to the roots of the franchise, offering larger, open maps and giving a great deal of freedom when it comes to approaching different objectives. Simultaneously, the single-player mechanics were significantly modified, in order for these to resemble the specifics of the multiplayer mode, which allows even up to 64 players to meet in one session. The new time period does not bring only the adequate weaponry and vehicles (planes, tanks, warships), but also makes it necessary to apply a different approach to combat - for instance, battles have become more brutal and a greater emphasis was placed on melee combat.

Apart from introducing a new faction, the biggest asset of this expansion in the entirely new theater of operations, which differs significantly from the battles that took place in the region surrounding Verdun that one might remember from the base game. Instead of trench warfare, the player gets thrown into more dynamic battles, taking place in large, open areas - in the woods and snow-capped plains - which significantly alters the nature of the gameplay. Other aspects of gameplay remain unchanged, so the level of realism and brutality, the character development mechanic, and the system of acquiring new pieces of gear remain the same. The game delivers a new mode, in which up to 64 players divided into two teams can fight each other on one map.

Additionally, the players can create automated defensive structures, such as bunkers or turrets, which can slow down the enemy's assault while one's allies are engaged in actions somewhere else.
