Last week EA announced the release of Battlefield 1 which was a true shocker to the fans as everyone was expecting the continuation of the main plot aka Battlefield 5 especially after series 2015 spin off Hardline. Battlefield 1 trailer got a record number of likes in YouTube history and that’s no wonder as it revealed the game return to the roots in terms of dynamics, spectacular battlefield, weaponry and the signature BF style. Here is what is known so far:
Battlefield 1 is set to be released on October, 21st but those who purchase Early Enlister edition will be able to start playing 3 days prior the official date. Developers made it clear the game is not going to be another Hardline sort of thing but will follow into traditional Battlefield patterns. Theoretically it’s the fifth installment of the Battlefield series that was strategically named Battlefield 1 for marketing purposes. Battlefield 1 brings up the World War I theme hence the number 1 is used to emphasize the fact and the history around the plot.
It has been a while since we last wrote the news on the legendary Battlefield franchise. To the delight of series fans, Hardline will become available for the EA Access Vault in a few days which will provide members unlimited access to the game.
More games such as Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare, BF4, Dragon Age: Inquisition, FIFA15 and others have also been added to Vault.
Battlefield franchise is famous for it military warfare but Hardline new developers, Dead Space and Dante’s Inferno’s Visceral Games, went for an experiment and put a lot of emphasis on to a new option featuring robbers and cops theme.
Although BR Hardline can be considered a great addition to a Battlefield franchise family, video gaming industry experts express a lot of doubts whether the game will become very popular among true fans of the series due to its overall similarity with “normal” BF games.
