5. Nothing is Written
Length: 3 total missions
Playtime: ~1.5 hours
This is by far the most compelling mission of them all. This level tells the story of Lawrence of Arabia, and how he and his rebels sweep the scorching Arabian desert to thwart the iron reign of the Ottoman Empire.
Instead of playing as the legend himself, you play as Zara, a fierce Bedouin rebel. The entire mission is most closely tied to actual history and is brimming with character. DICE does a great job quickly and easily depicting the plight of the Arab nation at this point in time; the Ottoman's want the oil, and they want their freedom.
DICE's Arabian Desert is beautiful, shimmering dunes and skirling sands and baking heat, but it's exotic and really reflects that sense of wonder about the Middle East. I can see ties with Battlefront in the cut scenes, but everything is stalwart, from the shadows to the textures and even the atmospheric effects.
The mission itself revolves around you stopping a horrendous engine of death: a steam engine that's been transformed into a monstrous killing machine. The train itself is rather striking and very memorable, as is the atmosphere. Everything feels new, different, and interesting - and you actually want to revel in the environments and explore.
Honestly, this one feels like Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain. It's more open than the other missions and feels decided open world.
But the mission isn't all guns out a blazing; as Zara, you can go in stealthily and take out enemies to gather the intel and complete objectives. It's a nice change of pace and gives you an actual choice on how to approach the mission, rather than just gunning everything down.
