The trailer for Battlefield 1’s single player was released yesterday, and now we have a bit more insight into what exactly we watched.
In a blog post, DICE told us that the story itself is not just one single story, but instead multiple stories:
We felt that to have one character hopping through those different settings wouldn’t be as immersive or totally respectful to the setting. So we decided on an anthology format; a set of characters with their own more focused stories. That way we can have immersion and variety – a double win.
DICE also told us that we would be meeting some important historical figures like the Red Baron and, my personal favorite, Lawrence of Arabia (all motorcycle aficionados love Lawrence).
The Great War is diverse. We knew we wanted to embrace that variety. There were so many different perspectives and characters in World War 1 and we wanted to cover as much ground as possible.
This has instantly took my interest in this game from ordinary levels, into full-on hype-mode.
Battlefield 1 is out October 21st.
