The core Battlefield experience, where large teams fight it out on a sprawling map, isn't the sort of thing that translates well into a competitive esport. Mainly because it's unpredictable, with individual and squad performance sometimes not really factoring into the overall score. Because, it isn't always about that. And so DICE and EA have spent considerable time creating Incursions, which is every bit Battlefield 1's competitive esports mode.
Tightly focused maps. Only five players on each team. Vehicles and specialisations included. Yeah, this looks interesting. But no doubt will cause a bit of controversy within the Battlefield community.
5-versus-5 Focused Battles
Built in collaboration with the community, the Battlefield 1 Incursions Closed Alpha brings the authenticity of Battlefield 1 to a contained, small-scale battle. The Battlefield 1 Incursions Closed Alpha’s uniquely designed smaller matches make it more than just another mode.
It wouldn’t be Battlefield without vehicles. Much like the Behemoths in the main Battlefield 1 experience, vehicles can turn the tide of an Incursions Closed Alpha match. But they aren’t unstoppable, and destroying an enemy vehicle can be just as decisive as deploying one.
Your choice in kit plays a critical role in the success of your squad, while every destroyed piece of environment can shift the entire momentum of battle. Only the sharpest strategic teams will rise to the top of the competition.
