DICE are keen to remind you that Battlefield 1 will also have a single player campaign, comprised of multiple short stories from the viewpoints of different WW1 protagonists. To that end, they’ve released a cinematic-style campaign trailer.
They’ve also put together an article talking more about the stories that’ll be present in the single player mode. One, ‘Through Mud and Blood’ casts you as British tank driver Danny Edwards. Edwards, in DICE’s words, “is not an ace sniper. He’s not a crack pilot. He’s not a demo expert. He’s a former chauffeur – a volunteer new to the war. He can drive and he can fix things.”
Another Battlefield 1 tale, one which has been mentioned by the studio already, will cast you as “an Arab rebel that is depicted as Lawrence [of Arabia’s] right hand.” She’ll be having to deal with the Ottoman Empire’s huge armoured train called ‘The Canavar’.
Here’s the trailer, showing you what sort of tone they’re going for here. Battlefield 1 will come to PC on 21 October.
