Update:

Here’s the description for Battlefield 1:

Fight your way through epic battles going from tight urban combat in a besieged French city to big open spaces in the Italian Alps or frantic combats in the Arabic sand dunes. Experience large-scale battles as infantry or piloting vehicles on land, air and sea, from the tanks and bikes on the ground, to bi-planes and gigantic battleships.

Discover a new world at war through an adventure-filled campaign, or join in epic multiplayer battles with up to 64 players. Adapt your tactics and strategy to the earth-shattering, dynamic environments and destruction.

EA adds, “Set against the backdrop of World War 1, witness the birth of modern warfare, as the Great War saw a furious arms race with new machines and weapons created to get the upper hand during the most technologically divergent war of all time. Feel the intensity and immersion as Battlefield 1 takes advantage of this modern arsenal to deliver the experience fans love, but with a fresh and modern twist.”

Original Story:

EA and DICE officially announced today that Battlefield 1 is coming to PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC worldwide on October 21.

The description says, “Discover classic Battlefield gameplay with epic multiplayer and an adventure-filled campaign. Experience the Dawn of All-Out War, Only in Battlefield 1.”

The end of the trailer confirms that a beta will be available at some point. It also adds that “game engine footage representative of Xbox One. Not actual gameplay.”

If you’re headed to EA Play in June, Battlefield 1 single-player and multiplayer will be playable.
