New Trailer Hypes Battlefield 1's Campaign

Battlefield games are known for their multiplayer mode, but EA is trying to get fans invested in the campaign for Battlefield 1, too.

Battlefield 1 single player's first trailer, which landed today, is shot like a movie, with gripping, emotional scenes inspired by WWI. Battlefield 1 is slated for release on October 21 for Xbox, Playstation and PC.


    God damn that facial capture.

    Honestly, I was more excited for the campaign than the multiplayer... and this just seems brilliant.

    I imagine that — just like that abomination Michael Bay's Pearl Harbor and to a lessor extent Saving Private Ryan — this portrayal of the First World War will have the USA winning every encounter and finally the war for everyone.

    Having said that I am looking forward to playing the campaign.

      I head some British accents, and I saw at least 2 slouch hats.

      Also, that girl that the Lawrence of Arabia alike was speaking to wasn't a yank.

        I'm talking about the ratio of Americans to other allies might be distorted as per those film examples.

          To be fair, those films you mentioned were about Americans.

      Funny thing is, Americans seem quite absent from the trailer. Beyond the Harlem hellfighter decked out in French gear.

        Africans and African Americans fought on the western front but only under French command.

    Yes and the narrator. But then of course this is all presupposition on my part. I have a foreboding nature in regards to these type of games.

    Gallipoli confirmed guys.


    The British Empire intends to open a new front to the war with an unprecedented naval invasion of the Ottoman homeland. The ships gathered for the Gallipoli Landings — the D-Day of World War 1 — carry over half a million men. As an Anzac runner you’ll witness the heat of epic bombardments and a beach landing, as well as covert deliveries of urgent life-or-death messages across the frontline."

      Have to laugh at EA needing to describe Gallipoli in a way that Americans understand. I'm tempted to start calling D-Day the Gallipoli of WW2.

      Snark aside, I hope Gallipoli is done well. I hope the Aussie and Kiwi accents sound better than the far more common Hollywood version of the accents.

      Does everyone get to fucking die or desperately try to retreat into the sea because the upper crust poms sent them to the wrong beach?

      Man I hope we get to see the charge of the Light Brigade at Ber Sheba.

    Really enjoyed the Open Beta & this looks terrific. All I want from my FPS Campaigns is just pure spectacle. I play other type of games for story & lore.
