Battlefield 1's 64-player matchmaking is still intact, and it's even better than ever.



Today DICE revealed Battlefield 1, the World War I FPS that's built on a more brutal world-on-fire approach. As such, multiplayer will be even more chaotic and brutal, with tons of explosive vehicle combat including biplane dogfighting in the skies, different variations of tanks, zeppelins, battleships--just all-out war across the land, sea and air.


"Battlefield 1 is all about the old world meting the new world, we wanted to depict this. the old tactics meet the new with cataclysmic results," said Lars Gustavsson. "The battles will be intense, the physicality really brings the immersion to the battles, and allows players to turn beautiful pristine landscapes into devastated landscapes." DICE affirms that multiplayer includes some of the "largest ever vehicles we've ever built", and combat will be much more brutal and impact players in a significant way,


"Battlefield 1 i s set on an epic scale, set on a global scale. We want to take the player on a journey across the world. From the deserts of Arabia, or fortresses under siege, all of them creating new opportunities and possibilities through multiplayer and campaign."


"We wanted to provide players with meaningful gameplay choices with the weapons. We'll have a huge variety of weapons including traditional rifles, SMGs, but we also have shovels and bayonets and the like. It's all about fitting your playstyle. Huge variety of weapons and gadgets including flamethrowers."


Battlefield 1 launches on October 21, 2016 on PC, PS4, and Xbox One. EA Access subscribers get early access to the game.
