Battlefield 1 Shows Off 64-Player Gameplay

Battlefield 1 [official site] was one of only two games EA had much of to show during their E3 annouce-o-rama, the other being Titanfall 2. Along with your traditional sound-and-fury E3 trailer (which was pretty swish, to be fair), they also showed a heck of a lot of actual gameplay. Two celebrity-studded teams squared off in 32v32 Conquest mode action, and it’s preserved online for your war-watching wonder.

First, here’s your regular E3 trailer, showing off basic manshoots as well as newly-revealed ‘Behemoth’ class vehicles – air ships, armoured trains, and battleships.

DICE also used the event to announce dynamic weather, which can see maps played in different weather conditions – changing mid-game too. A sunny day is not the same as a foggy one on the WW1 battlefields. Also newly blurbed up, Operations:

“Operations introduces a completely new way to play multiplayer. In Battlefield 1 will you play a series of interconnected battles across multiple fronts. Play a sequence of battles where your actions have consequences beyond a single match, as you try to conquer territory or push back your attackers.”

Now here’s the real stuff, the preserved 64-player action. I hope EA will split their steam and put videos on YouTube because otherwise, well, I’m left saying skip to 2:01:40 in this archived Twitch stream:

Sorry if that autoplays – Twitch’s player is a wreck. Dang, it looks wild when the air ship is downed and crashes to the ground, leaving its skeleton draped over the ruins of buildings it wiped out.

Battlefield 1 is due in October 21st.
