Battlefield 1 officially announced by EA

Battlefield 1 has been announced and as rumours suggest is based on World War 1. The video shown below includes all in-engine footage, and as revealed at the end, you can play it first on Xbox One through EA Access.

During the game you'll fight as infantry or take control of vehicles on land, air and sea, from the tanks and bikes on the ground, to biplanes and gigantic battleships.

Here's some further details:

- Epic 64-Player Multiplayer Battles - Team up with your friends and join in the most epic multiplayer battles in FPS history with up to 64 players fighting as infantry or piloting vehicles ranging from tanks and bikes on the ground to biplanes and gigantic battleships.
- Experience the Dawn of All-out War – Be a part of the greatest battles ever known to man. From the heavily defended Alps to the scorching deserts of Arabia, war is raging on an epic scale on land, air and sea as you witness the birth of modern warfare
- Earth-shattering Intuitive Destruction - With intuitive destruction, no battle is ever the same. Destroy vehicles big and small and demolish entire buildings. From tiny wooden houses to massive stone forts, even the grounds on which you’re fighting can be blasted apart.
- War Stories from the Far Edges of the World - Discover a world at war through an adventure-filled campaign that captures the variety of a global conflict through the eyes of several different characters all united by this first, modern war.

Pre-ordering Battlefield 1 will get you the Battlefield 1 Hellfighter Pack containing themed items inspired by the heroic Harlem Hellfighter infantry regiment. This also includes 7 days early access to a map released later in 2016.

The Harlem Hellfighters was one of the toughest infantry regiments in the Great War.

This pack contains unique unlocks inspired by their heroic deeds.

- Hellfighter M1911 – Reliable and timeless sidearm still used in action today affectionately called "old slabsides", etched with the Hellfighter insignia on the breech and "Men of Bronze" on the muzzle.
- Hellfighter Bolo Knife – Fearsome blade etched with the Hellfighter regiment number 369ththat makes your enemy feel homesick at first sight.
- Hellfighter Insignia – Wear this emblem to show your belonging to the elite Hellfighter unit and-in-still fear on the Battlefield.

Battlefield 1 will be available from Oct 21st, 2016 on Xbox One, PS4 and PC.

This is going to murder COD this year, I predict this will set sales records for a FPS. Even the MW remake wont get near this. Its all about the whole gaming community screaming for a change back in time and EA listened. Well done you will make a fortune, I ersonally cancelled COD order and changed to this when I saw it looks awesome abd im not feeding COD anynore sick of that future crap ive been playing it over and over for like 7 years and worse and worse every year too

I agree with Jason, battlefield 1 looks a lot more the kind of thing I've been talking about with friends with the time setting, COD just keeps getting further into the future. Eventually COD will be like destiny in whatever universe, battlefield I expect will do the opposite, which I won't complain with anytime soon
