EA DICE has published a new blog post, detailing Battlefield 1’s brand new game mode, Operations.
Normally, a round will end with either one of the two teams emerging victorious, and you start another round from scratch to play again. Well, Operations offers a different kind of gameplay mechanic since it will take players across different maps with the score of each round carrying over to the next map.
“We wanted to create a Battlefield experience that was not just bite-sized, but actually spanned beyond an hour of playtime.”
“Operations offer epic journeys across several maps based upon real battles of World War I. We wanted to offer a large and epic experience with a focus on teamplay and frontline combat. Adding this meta-layer to the game mode, and stretching it across multiple interesting locations that both look and play very differently, adds a whole new layer of scale and variety to the battles in Battlefield 1. Your team can win on one map, proceed to the next map, and actually see the map you previously fought over on the horizon.”
The mode will consist of attackers and defenders. Attackers must go and capture a sector and push the frontline forward, while defenders try their best to hold them off and prevent them from doing so.
“The attackers must capture and hold all defensive positions in order to capture the sector that is being fought over. Once this is done, the defenders will fall back to the next sector and regroup. The pacing and variety between the different sectors vary widely, since each sector offers a different amount of objectives to capture and defend as well as varied layouts and choke points.”
Battlefield 1 releases on October 21st on PS4, Xbox One and PC.
