One of this year’s most anticipated games is undoubtedly Battlefield 1, and while we’ve already seen what this game is capable of through a series of gameplay trailers, we’ll actually be able to hit the trenches ourselves starting August 31. That’s when the open beta for Battlefield one is scheduled to start off, and according to EA, this phase will include the Sinai Desert map, which is a “scorching hot battlefield located just East of El-Jifar.” Apart from this map, the Battlefield 1 open beta will offer two gaming modes, namely Conquest and Rush, both of which should be familiar to those of you who played Battlefield games before.
- Conquest. An all-time fan favorite of Battlefield players, Conquest is a large-scale game mode with up to 64 players fighting for the control of key objectives. With large armies on foot or behind the wheel and the addition of fearsome Behemoths, Conquest brings together all the elements of the signature Battlefield All-Out War.
- Rush. A 24-player mode where the Attacking force must find and destroy the Defending force’s Telegraph Posts, which can be used to call in artillery strikes. The Defenders can deny the Attackers their mission by disarming explosives they plant on the telegraph positions. Should the Telegraph Posts be destroyed, the Defenders must fall back to the next sector and protect the Telegraph Posts there.
Apart from unveiling this information, the game’s developers also released a brand new gameplay trailer for Gamescom, which you will be able to see below. Are you looking forward to the next installment in the Battlefield series?
