AusGamers was out at the official Battlefield
1 reveal event where we were not only show that
trailer, but were also privy to a more lengthy behind-the-scenes look at the game's beginnings, what's on offer (specifically from a multiplayer perspective) and more.
From our initial preview:
Character classes return in familiar form: Assault, Medic, Support and Scout are all in tow, but you’ll also have varying vehicle classes across the myriad vehicles available. Heavy and light tanks, armoured trucks, cavalry, biplanes, triplanes, scout planes and bombers. You can even get yourself on board a battleship sitting out in the ocean and literally barrage the enemy, creating chokepoints or stopping them from achieving objectives. Land, air and sea are huge emphasises for the sandbox gameplay Battlefield multiplayer is renowned for, and there’s an even larger focus on team play with structured rewards, apparently (not a lot of detail was gone into here). 64 player multiplayer is just the tip of the iceberg, and we were told that the environments would be more destructible and that you would have a more physical presence within them; a more personal experience. If it looks and feels like you can go there, or open that door, chances are you can.Click here for our initial Battlefield 1 preview
