After the release of a series of teasers for “Battlefield 1,” DICE decided to cap it off with a new 30-second snippet which is designed to showcase a chapter in the game called “The Runner.” The single player campaign feature of the game will be split into five different war stories that will take place in different settings including Britain, France, The Ottoman Empire, among others.
This new video showcases players staging a naval assault on Ottoman territory and is pretty much everything else out of “Battlefield 1,” which engages the senses very deeply. The reason behind DICE’s decision to split its main storyline is to let players experience the Great War through the standpoint of multiple protagonists, reported We Got This Covered. Whether they would be war pilots ripping across the skies or a Bedouin warrior under the command of Lawrence of Arabia, it has all the makings of an awesome war game.
While it has all the makings of what could be the next biggest war game, “Battlefield 1” is not without any problems at all. Digital Spy reported that its developer DICE has chosen to recreate a conflict that was responsible for harrowing senseless loss of lives, which exemplify the futility of armed conflict. With that give, a big issue for both DICE and EA is how they would approach one of the biggest tragedies of the 20th century without offending as much people as they can. The game must not glamorize war under any given circumstances but of course, some elements such as camaraderie and adventure will be present.
It is, thus, reported that the answer to this sensitive problem would be their approach, which is to split the game into multiple angles which might presumably end in death. There will be no happy endings, proclaimed heroes and misplaced praise of elements in the war that should be condemned without a doubt.
The latest gameplay video shows the game’s prologue shows soldiers going on tough missions where they are expendable or not expected to survive at all. It has a chilling but engaging effect, but this could be the only solution to let the campaign at least feel entertaining rather than commemorative. Players will know on October 21, when “Battlefield 1” becomes available for purchase if the game offers the experience expected by players.
