DICE is the first studio to give us a World War I setting in a modern first-person shooter.
With Battlefield 1, the studio is making sure they create an authentic historically sandbox multiplayer shooter.
They aren’t just giving us a WWI modern era Battlefield, it is more than that.
DICE’s lead designer, Daniel Berlin emphasizes that the studio is making sure they stay authentic to the era and the multiplayer modes and maps will be different from what we do know of the series’ multiplayer currently.
“We’re crafting some modes that look at the era, and we make the mode fit that era. So that’s something we’re also doing”, Berlin told AusGamers.
“Battlefield 1 takes you across multiple and varied locations in a bid to fight your way through immersive battles. From tight urban fights in a besieged French city, to big open spaces in the Italian Alps and frantic combats in the deserts of Arabia, discover a world at war through an adventure-filled campaign.
In a true multiplayer sandbox experience, take to the skies and engage in high-octane dogfights through treacherous landscapes, or have a battleship obliterating the coast from the sea, and engage in some of the biggest battles ever seen as empires clash for supremacy.”
