Probably because of the shovels.
Battlefield 1 is poised to make a big splash later this year, taking the series back to World War I and hoping to be the biggest Battlefield game ever.
“Fans got their first look into the intense, visceral combat and epic scale of this groundbreaking new game from DICE,” Wilson said in regards to the game’s world premier, “and the response was immediate and extraordinary. The trailer was viewed more than 21 million times in the first four days, a new record for EA, and it is now our most-liked trailer in history.”
“With Battlefield 1,” he continued, “we’ve set out to deliver the biggest and most innovative Battlefield game ever, with a deep story and unprecedented variety in the gameplay powered by our Frostbite engine.”
Battlefield 1’s world premier gave a glimpse into these big plans, promising air battles, global settings, and more brutal melee combat than ever before. Alongside the new trailer, the team also explained why the game is named Battlefield 1.
