on May 10, 2016 11:30 AM

Today Electronic Arts hosted a Q&A session on Twitter with Battlefield 1 Senior Producer Aleksander Grøndal, who provided quite a lot of information about the upcoming shooter by EA DICE.

  • Vehicles are much more unique and the gameplay reflects that.
  • The single player campaign will feel “very much like Battlefield.”
  • There will be planes with a rear gunner position that can be manned by another player.
  • There will be a variety of new game modes mixed with classic ones.
  • There will be a range of different naval vessels.
  • There won’t be any night vision scopes (yes, someone actually asked that, and it did get answered. Don’t shoot the messenger).
  • All weapon attachments will be authentic for the World War I era.
  • Tanks can be controlled by one person, but they’ll fit multiple people operating the guns.
  • Planes are actually affected gameplay-wise when they get damaged, like when they lose part of a wing.
  • The game will come with a server browser.

Definitely a multi-platform gamer, he still holds the old dear PC nearest to his heart, while not disregarding any console on the market. RPGs (of any nationality) and MMORPGs are his daily bread, but he enjoys almost every other genre, prominently racing simulators, action and sandbox games. He is also one of the few surviving fans of the flight simulator genre on Earth.
