DICE finally confirmed Battlefield 1‘s name and release date along with showcasing an in-engine trailer of the game in a recent livestream event. After the trailer was revealed, the developer talked about some interesting details that would define this release.
Battlefield 1 will take place across different locations in the world, ranging from the Western Front to Arabia and all of these locations will be featured in the campaign and multiplayer.
