News – Battlefield 1 single player campaign trailer and details
Battlefield 1’s single player campaign will have you filling the boots of various soldiers, amongst these will be a fighter pilot, an armour crewman, an Arab rebel fighter as well as a message-runner, with the campaign spanning multiple war stories.
The campaign will apparently give you a certain amount of freedom that allows you to do your own thing from time to time, and you’ll also come across some historical figures from the time period. Expect to meet the likes of Laurence of Arabia as well as the Red Baron.
Official descriptions of the different stories can be seen below:
Friends in High Places
The allies are losing the war in the air. Britain struggles to compete with the German aces and the average lifetime of a combat pilot is 17 days. You must face these bleak odds and take to the skies for a noble fight over the western front. Intense dogfights, unexpected encounters, and a story of friendship await you.
Nothing is Written
In the Middle East deserts, Arab tribes rebel against the oppression of the Ottoman Empire. The Empire’s devastating artillery engage rebel forces wielding rifles from horseback. As a Bedouin warrior working alongside the legendary Lawrence of Arabia, you must find a way to take on the technologically superior enemy and destroy a deadly railgun.
Through Blood and Mud
In the autumn of 1918, British forces prepare for a mass assault on the town of Cambrai, France. With tank support, Allied Command believes a breakthrough is a certainty. But the Mark V tank has one major flaw: it is not reliable. Join a dysfunctional tank crew who battle their way behind enemy lines as they learn to work together.
Italy and the Austro-Hungarian Empire are deadlocked among the Alps. Braced by snow-capped mountains, neither side can find a way to dislodge their enemy. Meanwhile, the Italian mountaineer regiment Arditi prepares an unorthodox assault. Don your Arditi armor and head up a mountainside as Italian and Austrian forces clash over a strategic fort.
The British Empire intends to open a new front to the war with an unprecedented naval invasion of the Ottoman homeland. The ships gathered for the Gallipoli Landings — the D-Day of World War 1 — carry over half a million men. As an Anzac runner you’ll witness the heat of epic bombardments and a beach landing, as well as covert deliveries of urgent life-or-death messages across the frontline.
Battlefield 1 is due for release on October 21st on PS4, Xbox One and PC.
