"While our characters are at war, the stories in Battlefield 1 are personal. They're about people rather than history or battles," explained DICE.
"The Great War is diverse. We knew we wanted to embrace that variety. There were so many different perspectives and characters in World War 1 and we wanted to cover as much ground as possible."
The main focus of Battlefield 1, will of course be its multiplayer component. This will include six gameplay modes and nine maps, although one more will be released in December for free.
