Battlefield 1 will take the series’ penchant for realism and emergent gameplay even further, thanks to its new weather system- according to reddit user Euden, who attended the EA Play London event and managed to play a single match of Battlefield 1, the weather system could be a legitimate game changer this time around.
“Best thing: the weather system and how it changes up the gameplay, the guns felt great and it felt really authentic. Best looking Battlefield to date!” he gushed, before explaining more.
“My best moment was the map turning foggy, suddenly the control point I had taken in the sun became gloomy with troops hiding in the houses defending it, it truly felt like something out of a movie with allies running in bayonetting people. It was crazy.”
This is the kind of thing that the franchise used to be known for in the past- systems like this or the objective based gameplay, or the dynamic destruction, which ld to the franchise being known for its stellar emergent gameplay. After almost six years, this is what we are getting with Battlefield 1 again. I can’t wait.
