EA has released a full series of trailers for the upcoming Battlefield 1, dubbed the “War Stories.” Each of the five trailers showcase the game’s single-player characters, who fight across a variety of different regions during the First World War.
As previously revealed, the War Stories are titled Friends in High Places, Nothing is Written, Through Mud and Blood, Avanti Savoia, and The Runner. Each of the campaigns spans multiple missions and puts you in the roles of some of the men (and one woman, a Bedouin fighter) who fought in the war.
Check them out:
The game is slated to launch on October 18 for early enlisters on the PC, Xbox One and PS4. It’ll be out on October 18 for everyone else. If you’re an EA/Origin Access subscriber, you can play it tomorrow. The service is available on PC and Xbox One.
Here are the descriptions for each mission:
FRIENDS IN HIGH PLACES
The allies are losing the war in the air. Britain struggles to compete with the German aces and the average lifetime of a combat pilot is 17 days. You must face these bleak odds and take to the skies for a noble fight over the western front. Intense dogfights, unexpected encounters, and a story of friendship await you.
NOTHING IS WRITTEN
In the Middle East deserts, Arab tribes rebel against the oppression of the Ottoman Empire. The Empire’s devastating artillery engage rebel forces wielding rifles from horseback. As a Bedouin warrior working alongside the legendary Lawrence of Arabia, you must find a way to take on the technologically superior enemy and destroy a deadly railgun.
THROUGH MUD AND BLOOD
In the autumn of 1918, British forces prepare for a mass assault on the town of Cambrai, France. With tank support, Allied Command believes a breakthrough is a certainty. But the Mark V tank has one major flaw: it is not reliable. Join a dysfunctional tank crew who battle their way behind enemy lines as they learn to work together.
Italy and the Austro-Hungarian Empire are deadlocked among the Alps. Braced by snow-capped mountains, neither side can find a way to dislodge their enemy. Meanwhile, the Italian mountaineer regiment Arditi prepares an unorthodox assault. Don your Arditi armor and head up a mountainside as Italian and Austrian forces clash over a strategic fort.
The British Empire intends to open a new front to the war with an unprecedented naval invasion of the Ottoman homeland. The ships gathered for the Gallipoli Landings–the D-Day of World War 1–carry over half a million men. As an Anzac runner you’ll witness the heat of epic bombardments and a beach landing, as well as covert deliveries of urgent life-or-death messages across the frontline.
