So we’ve all most likely had a taste of Battlefield 1’s insane multiplayer, but what about the campaign? Will it contain a story that’ll really keep us glued to the screen, or will we be immediately jumping out in favour of the fast-paced multiplayer?
Electronic Arts has released a new video for Battlefield 1 that gives us a glimpse at the game’s campaign for the first time. According to EA, the campaign will tell different stories which combine to form an anthology. Each story will focus on a different character in the war, and will be focused on these people rather than the history or battles fought.
“The Great War is diverse. We knew we wanted to embrace that variety. There were so many different perspectives and characters in World War 1 and we wanted to cover as much ground as possible,” EA revealed.
EA revealed that one of these story arcs will focus on a British Mark V tank crew and a young soldier within that assigned as the tank’s driver. Another arc will focus on an Arab rebel fighting along side Lawrence of Arabia.
It definitely sounds like an interesting take on the traditional campaign. Here’s hoping that DICE can pull it off.

Battlefield 1 launches on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One on October 21.
