DICE and Electronic Arts release a batch of high resolution screenshots that showcase the gameplay diversity and graphical beauty of the upcoming Battlefield 1.
Just as Activision released a batch of Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare screenshots following its reveal, EA has gifted the gaming world with some high resolution screens of Battlefield 1. The screenshots for Battlefield 1 are diverse, and are an indication that gamers can look forward to gameplay with a lot of variety once it releases later this year.
As the Battlefield 1 trailer revealed, the next game in the long-running first-person shooter franchise takes place during World War I, and the screenshots are reflective of that setting. Players can take a glimpse at a sword-wielding soldier riding horseback, an explosive dogfight in a canyon, a massive zeppelin, an era-accurate flamethrower, and more.
The screenshots also highlight the graphical beauty that Battlefield 1 is bringing to the table. The Battlefield 1 teaser claimed that the impressive footage on display was all in-engine, and based on the screenshots, that claim is accurate. All the screens are highly detailed, with one of a soldier standing on the edge of a cliff, looking out into a vast ocean one of the most jaw-dropping of the bunch.
While DICE is criticized at times for a perceived lack of content in its games, it doesn't seem likely that anyone will knock the studio for what it delivers in terms of graphics. See just how great Battlefield 1 looks in the screenshots below:
As the above screenshots illustrate, Battlefield 1 is looking to provide gamers with plenty of unique gameplay opportunities, and it seems as though the game will have more variety when compared to other games in the genre, which should keep players from getting bored with it too quickly. To that end, if the rumors of Battlefield 1's campaign only having six missions are true, if the missions are as diverse as these recently released screenshots, gamers may be able to forgive the story for its potentially short length.
Overall, fan reception to Battlefield 1 seems to be more positive than the reception its chief competition this year, Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare, is receiving. The decision to make Battlefield 1 set in World War I has proven to be a smart move by EA, and the result is a lot of excitement surrounding the new game. If the company is able to avoid Battlefield 4's launch problems, then this may be the first year that Battlefield stands a legitimate chance at besting Call of Duty in sales.
Battlefield 1 will be available on October 21st for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
