On Sunday, June 12, EA and DICE will be hosting a 64-player match in Battlefield 1 featuring popular YouTubers and Twitch streamers to showcase the amazing multiplayer in the World War I game at the E3 2016 conference. To whet your appetite they released this short new multiplayer teaser trailer. And it looks tremendous.
The teaser focuses on the game’s emphasis on gritty hand-to-hand melee combat in the muddy trenches of Europe.
There are six categories of weapons:
There are your Shotguns (great for blasting enemies from up close), SMGs (made for short-range rapid-fire), LMGs (amazing at tearing things apart from medium range), Semi Autos (balanced and powerful), Sidearms (great in a pinch), and Sniper Rifles (which do exactly what you think).
From those six categories of weapons, there are multiple different weapons to choose from.
Weapon customization is more focused and utilizes pre-set loadouts for each weapon. There are up to three pre-sets for each weapon.
It appears that melee weapons will be more important than in modern warfare games and will perform other tasks than just killing the enemy with a bayonet charge. You can cut barbed wire, destroy barricades, or even damage light vehicles.
There are different types of grenades. You have your garden-variety frag grenades as well as gas grenades (low damage, but their gas lingers for a long time), and incendiary grenades (high damage, but for a limited time).
It sounds like DICE did an amazing job with the sound effects in Battlefield 1. “You can even tell when your magazine is running out of ammo now – your firing sound slightly changes when your ammo is low.”
Battlefield 1 will be released on October 21 for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC. I can’t wait!
