THE DAWN OF ALL-OUT WAR
Experience the origins of modern warfare where the old world was destroyed, giving way to the new one. Use the innovative, modern weaponry and vehicles of World War I as you battle across the land, air and sea.

NO BATTLE IS EVER THE SAME
Dynamic weather and intuitive destruction create an ever-changing landscape. Make your mark on the world, whether you're blasting craters in the ground with artillery strikes or ripping apart walls with gunfire.

MASSIVE BEHEMOTHS
Pilot some of the largest vehicles in Battlefield history. Rain down fire from the sky in a gargantuan Airship, tear through the world in the Armored Train, or bombard the land from the sea in the Dreadnought.

Elite Classes
Flame Trooper is Wrapped in fire-resistant gear and carrying a powerful flamethrower, the Flame Trooper brings with him chaos. He's far from indestructible, though. Part of his kit has him permanently affixed with a gas mask, slowing him down and keeping his vision lowered. Attack from afar, and you might escape un-scorched.

Sentry, who is strapped with thick armor plating. The Sentry moves like a human tank, equipped with a water-cooled machine gun at his hip. He can shower enemy positions with lead while still being able to withstand a lot of damage, but unlike the Flame Trooper, he can't wear a gas mask at all.

Tank Hunter use of the 1918 Tankgewehr, an absolute beast of a weapon that can lay waste to enemy infantry and vehicles alike (so long as the Tank Hunter is prone). A well-placed shot from this weapon is capable of knocking out a vehicle's tracks, machine guns, or cannons on armored vehicles. They don't call it the Tankgewehr for nothing.

Horses
While they might not be as sturdy as tanks, they're still effective in close-quarters combat. Their speed and agility means they can trample enemies under their powerful hooves, and they'll get you close enough to slash them down with a saber. If you prefer to stay back a bit, you’ll have access to powerful rifles for medium range combat that can be fired from horseback. The Cavalry class will spawn onto a horse from the Loadout screen. Horses are even effective in anti-vehicle assaults using grenades – you can run circles around the slower mechanized vehicles and harass them with explosives. Horses also have a secondary use as a mobile supply station of sorts, so in addition to these offensive capabilities, players can drop ammo and bandages from the saddlebags to assist team members and help them stay in the fight.

Battlepacks
Battlepacks from the ground up with a focus on customization. You'll get Battlepacks for playing multiplayer matches, and when you crack one open, you'll find an awesome Weapon Skin, which come in three rarities: Special, Distinguished, and Legendary. Some packs may also include a piece of a craftable unique melee weapon. Special melee weapons need to be built, and you’ll find the puzzle pieces inside. Collect ‘em all, and you’ll have a new weapon at your disposal. Besides including a Weapon Skin and melee weapon piece, there's another surprise that could be inside. When you receive a Weapon Skin or an item you don’t want or need you can salvage it for Scraps, an in-game currency that can then be spent on new Battlepacks. Spending Scraps is the only way of getting hold of Enhanced Battlepacks (which guarantee a Distinguished weapon skin) and Superior Battlepacks (which guarantee a Legendary weapon skin). Battlepack content will shift regularly, with new Revisions changing up which Weapon Skins and items are currently available. Before you open up a Battlepack you will see a list of what skins the current Revision contains, letting you know if the skins you want is currently available in the pool of possible items.​



Battlefied 1 is a 64 player first-person shooter that emphasizes teamwork. The game is set during World War 1 and inspired by historic events. Players can make the use of World War 1 weapons and control various armored vehicles. Melee combat was reworked with a variety of different types of melee weapons. Destructible environments and weapons customizations return and will be more dynamic.

The game features a class and squad system. There are no best class, since each class has certain advantage and disadvantage over each other. Being able to pick the right class at the right time can have a massive impact on the match. For example, picking an Assault will be more helpful when there are tanks and close range combat. While on wide open maps, picking a Scout to spot and engage at longer distances will be better. While being a medic to keep your teammates alive while capturing an objective can be useful as well. Joining a squad will allow you to spawn on them in matches and supporting your squad members will earn you extra points. Squad leaders can mark objectives such as attacking a flag or defending. Completing the marked objective will earn extra points to your score.

According to the game designer, World War 1 was picked as the setting since the developers believed the weapons from the era will allow different playstyle. In addition to having a variety of locations. The game was named Battlefield 1, since the developers consider World War 1 as "The Dawn of All-Out Warfare"​









Battlefield 1 will launched with 9 maps with a free map releasing in December.






Specialized units formed to develop assault tactics. Assaults uses close range weapons such as submachine guns and shotguns. In addition, come equipped with explosive Gadgets to combat vehicles.


Trained in the art of keeping their teammates healthy. They can still hold their own in the combat department, with medium-range weapons.


Armed with light machine guns to provide sustained fire to take out enemies or suppress. their weaponry is fit for close and medium range and typically has a high rate of fire, letting you lay down a steady stream of bullets towards anyone you'd rather keep in one place. Their Gadgets can keep teammates resupplied and repair vehicles.


Long-range specialist, able to take out enemies from afar with powerful sniper rifles. They are instrumental for team play as well - the Scout class can use its range and Gadgets to provide reconnaissance to their team, surveying the area and calling out locations for their teammates, and or help protect positions.

TIPS

Battlefield 1 PC performance thread

Battlefield 1 Review thread





Q: Where are the French or Russian?
A: The French and Russian will be feature in a specific expansion pack.

Q: Why are there X, Y, Z?
A: ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ I am sure your X, Y, Z has been talked about up. There is most likely a thread regarding X, Y, Z. Please contiune the discussion there.

Q: I don't like the female announcer, can we change it?
A: You can change the female announcer to a male announcer in the game.

Q: I thought World War 1 was all Trench Warfare?
A: The Western Front was mainly trench warfare was till 1917.

Q: Hi I am a new player and I feel overwhelm by the multiplayer. Any suggestions?
A: Feel free to ask any questions. I and other community members will be willing to play with new players to help them out.

Q: I just hit a tank with a shell and it did no damage!
A: Depending on the angle, shells can bounce off and do no damage.

Q: Why do the assault rifle suck?
A: There are no assault rifles in the game. The assault weapon is a submachine gun with limited range.

Q: Do you show up on the map when you fire?
A: No you only show up on the map when spotted.

Q: Can you spam the spot key like in Battlefield 3 and Battlefield 4?
A: From my experiences, its much harder to spam the post key.

Q: I am more interested in World War 1 now, any suggestions?
A: There are codex entry in game. Also check out The Great War Youtube channel. The channel shows you the history of the First World War in the four years from 1914 to 1918, exactly 100 years ago. The host Indy takes you back week by week and shows you what was going on in the past.

Q: So what is next for DICE?
A: "PANZER VOR!"
Personally I am hoping DICE will make another WW2 Battlefield game.
I believe a new Star Wars: Battlefront is coming out next year. In addition
Speaking at Nasdaq’s 35th Investor Program, Electronic Arts CFO Blake Jorgensen said the company would not have a new Battlefield game for “a couple of years,” opting to focus on a new Star Wars Battlefront. The Battlefield series has released titles with wider gaps in recent years.

Q: Why are you so slow?
A: First time doing a OT :(

Special thanks to Milkham for helping me with the artwork, banners, etc! In addition, I would like to thank DICE for making the battlefield series, my friends and family for always supporting. me. And lastly I would offer a greatest thanks to the families of soldiers. Your sacrifice will never be forgotten.
This is my first time making a OT, so I hope you guys enjoy it and don't be so harsh if it's not up to standard.

Great OT and title, lol. What I've played of both the SP and MP in the Access trial has me very excited... happy to have such a strong Battlefield game this year.
 
#14
Pleasantly surprised by Argonne. The screenshots made it look like another tiny, linear 3-flag map, but it's actually a decently sized 5-flag. We'll see how it shakes out long term since it's still kind of corridor-y, but the one round I played on it was fun and evenly-matched. Beats the pants off of Suez at the very least.

Four hours left on my trial. Four days left to stretch it. argh. D:

Operations is the greatest thing to come to battlefield. It captures the drama of single player really well, much like Titanfall tried and failed to do.
 
#17
Glad to see this getting such high praise on GAF. Will definitely buy in on Origin if I see a 39.99 discount. I'm prioritizing continued play of Overwatch and Titanfall 2 this year for my day 1 multiplayer fixes, but I haven't missed a mainline Battlefield game yet and honestly had low expectations for this for a long time, but the seemingly high volume of good praise is making me warm up to it quick.

You should grab a month of Orgin access and try it.

Was not able to get into a single match of Operations during my trial. Either I'd be the lone person on the server or it would kick me back to the menu.
 
#24
Thanks! Got it.

Was not able to get into a single match of Operations during my trial. Either I'd be the lone person on the server or it would kick me back to the menu.
Yeah that happened to be several times. Most of my 10 hours was spent playing Operations, in total I'd spend probably 5 or 6 hours playing it. Depends what time of day you tried I guess.
 
#27
I have almost no battlefield experience (I played the bad company campaigns and a little MP in bc2) and I think I'm down for this. I haven't gotten big into a military shooter since Killzone 2 but this game just looks real good.
 
#31
Has there been any kind of outrage over the Gears 4 and Battlefield 1 "you get to play it several days early if you pay more" stuff? I feel like there's got to be a Jimquisition in the works about this. People lost their fucking shit when there was a prospect of preorder incentives to get Deus Ex 4 early.
 
#34
So game is good? Haven't been following. For reference bc2 was my personal fav bf game
For reference, BC2 and BFH still my favourite BF games, BF3 and BF4 was disappointing/average for me.

This game is up there among the best BF games and GOTY. Operations is just amazing and I can see it being one of the main modes
 
#35
Pretty sick OT. I'm excited to try Operations; looks like Rush but good.

I don't know if I'll be able to play 'til next week, though; do you guys think it'll be too late to jump in?
lol
 
#36
So it's unlocking later on psn? That sucks if true. I was hoping to jump in. I'm going to be out of town from wed night til next Monday. I think this has potential to be one of my favorite shooters ever. I loved the beta and sunk way more hours into it than I care to admit. I just hit over 500 hrs in BF4 on PS4. I consider that a decent amount seeing as I only played when my buddy brought his PS4 over. I ended up with an 80% win rate and 2.46 K/D
Nice OT!
 
#37
Has anyone that played the PC version of BF1 used the Xbone controller?

In the alpha, it wasn't fully compatible with the game menu, but worked fine during gameplay. Wondering if that's been resolved.

Yeah I'm pretty pissed about that honestly. Smart business move but a bit scummy :\

@Gaz Thanks man, definitely interested to try it out.
 
#39
Ugh my trial just ended...I got to play 15 mins on Ball Room Blitz. I didn't expect that map to be big I thought for sure it was gonna be this games metro/locker.

Playing a Battlefield game at launch is usually a type of punishment.

Finished my second trial today. Thanks for taking us back to the past, DICE! So fookin fresh.

PS
1944 would make one hell of a sequel...

EA/Origin Access has been a thing for a while now hasn't it? I guess this is their biggest game since it's been a thing though.

It's obnoxious and I'm certainly not a fan of it, but I'm not really outraged. It's pretty easy for me to wait a couple extra days when the alternative is to shell out a laughable 80 bones for the privilege. I'm quite content with my $41 peasant edition.
