While many FPS titles take you to the edge of the future and beyond, Battlefield 1 takes you to the world war that truly started it all. WWI, the War To End All Wars, where countries battled for power both physically and politically. Now, you're asked to relive some of the greatest and most tragic battles that war had to offer. These aren't the weapons you're used to using, and the tactics aren't what they would become, so think carefully about how you use your gun, and how you rush into battle.
Battlefield 1 comes jam-packed with a huge arsenal of weaponry, much of it created or honed during The Great War: powerful shotguns, rapid-fire SMGs, destructive LMGs, balanced semiauto rifles, Hail Mary sidearms, trusty sniper rifles, and a wide range of melee weapons like shovels and trench clubs (for when you want to get better acquainted). No matter your style, there's a weapon to go with it.
Play to your strengths with one of five unique character classes. Bring the pain with close-quarters combat skills and anti-vehicle gadgetry as Assault. Make sure your teammates are stocked up on ammo, then lay down harsh suppressing fire as Support. Keep allies alive with the Medic class, or stand back and get the sniper rifle ready as a Scout. Or, if none of that appeals, jump into a plane or tank and switch to Pilot or Tanker - then you can tear up the battlefield with some seriously heavy-duty machinery.
See a whole world at war with maps set in locales across the globe. Dodge between crumbling buildings in the city of Amiens, France during the German spring offensive. Clash on the cliffs of Monte Grappa in the Italian Alps, and fight tooth and nail to claim its critical forts. Push inch by inch through the trench-speckled no man’s land of northern France. And take to the oceans of the Adriatic coast and fight for the fate of a small Mediterranean village.
