Yesterday I posted a couple of videos showcasing Battlefield 1's first DLC drop, They Shall Not Pass.
To say that people were annoyed about EA leaving the French out of Battlefield 1's multiplayer is really something of an understatement. The French army played a huge part in World War 1 and many people felt it was unfair to carve them out of history and serve them up as premium DLC at a later date.
War. It's changing! Battlefield 1 is getting a sizeable update tomorrow, with the release of a map as well as the introduction of a spectator mode and a new custom game option being folded in which restricts players to their faction's standard issue rifles.
Happy Battlefield 1 launch day! Wait, what do you mean it was earlier this week? Hang on, what do you mean people have been playing it since last week? Oh video games, you are so silly with your early unlocks and special editions and getting people to pay £20 to play a few days early. Back in my day all you had to do was ask the man at the shop nicely and he'd slip you a copy of Sonic the Hedgehog 2 a few days before release.
Happy Battlefield 1 Launch Day, folks! Or more accurately, Happy Battlefield 1 Early Adopters Day!
Battlefield 1 is indeed out today, but only for those die hard fans who shelled out extra cash in order to get the game three days before the general public.
I'll be diving into the game from 12.30pm, first on our Facebook page, where I'll be streaming half an hours worth of multiplayer.
Battlefield 1 is back and this time it's brought horses!
Yup, the Battlefield 1 beta is now open to all, and because I played the closed alpha on PS4, I thought I'd mix things up a bit and play 90 minutes of the Xbox One build for today's stream.
The open beta includes a brand new map, Sinai Desert, and features a gigantic armoured train along with some view-obscuring sandstorms and lots of lovely horses to ride.
Well, well, well, what a surprise. Yesterday, all coverage of Battlefield 1's closed alpha was locked up tight under a super strict NDA which prevented us from even talking about our experiences with it.
We've already seen plenty of Battlefield 1 footage emerge from this year's E3. Martin and I had a good old natter over a bunch of gameplay last week and by now I'm pretty sure everyone has watched the 45 minute long, celebrity-filled Let's Play that features Snoop Dogg smoking a funny-looking cigarette and a very red-eyed Zac Efron.
So far Conquest has been the only mode shown publicly but, during our hands-on session at E3, I was able to play and capture another Battlefield favourite - Domination.
Below you'll find 22 minutes of Domination mode gameplay - that's three full matches - all taking place on a smaller version of the St. Quentin Scar map already shown in Conquest mode.
