Fresh off the initial reveal of Battlefield 1 last month, DICE general manager Patrick Bach introduced a new trailer for the game. As expected, the clip showed off more World War I chaos.
The trailer shows soldiers clashing on the battlefield with melee weapons and rifles, along with some aerial combat. You can use the biplane to take out groups of enemies or a rival pilot, or control the slow, but massive airships to deal more damage to enemies.
Bach also mentioned a few upcoming features for the game, one of which was dynamic weather. When the match starts, you might have a clear sky with the sun shining down on the battlefield, but as the match continues, the weather might take a turn for the worse. You could have a downpour of rain or the fog could roll in on the battlefield, both of which could make it difficult for you to see the enemy.
For EA Play attendees, DICE will have gameplay demos available so that fans can get an idea of what to expect from the game. We'll be back at the venue tomorrow to get some much needed hands-on time with Battlefield 1.

I'll pass then. Plus, I don't really like WW1/2 video games... I don't know why...
I still like BF 2, but EA killed it. I'll pass.Reply
LOL freak you EA, just like Battlefront I wont be buying your watered down money milking crap.Reply
Hopefully Battlefield fans will spot this as another hardlinesque one off. Pass.Reply
I stopped buying EA games a while ago. I bought BF4 under peer pressure to play MP with friends. Barely played it and regret wasting the money. I won't be rejoining the EA bandwagon without good cause and a massive sale.Reply
battlefield re-wind brings back memories, should be fun, unless they watered it down so much so that they can sell 2000 dlcsReply
No french army in the game but black hero soldier protagonist.. WTF EA? What was a fantastic opportunity to educate millions about the specifics of the greatest conflict in human history is instead reduced to pandering to minorities and appeasing PC culture. sigh... This SJW thing has gotten waaay outta control now. Zepplins look cool, but I won't be buying this, maybe in a steam sale in 2 or 3 years for 5 bucks.Reply
