BATTLEFIELD 1’S CONFIRMED MAPS, MODES
AND MORE…


BATTLEFIELD 1 IS SET TO RELEASE IN OCTOBER AND WILL FEATURE A BUNCH OF MAPS BASED ON HISTORIC WORLD WAR 1 LOCATIONS. IT’LL ALSO INCLUDE CLASSIC BATTLEFIELD MODES, IN ADDITION TO A NEW ONE CALLED OPERATIONS, WHERE YOU WAGE WAR ACROSS SEVERAL MAPS AND ROUNDS IN AN INTER-CONNECTED SERIES OF BATTLES.

More maps and modes are sure to be revealed in the future, but the confirmed maps so far are set in France and Italy. A war-torn French city; the trench-filled battlefields of Northern France; the Venetion Alps; and the Adriatic coast are all settings for Battlefield 1’s matches.

Battlefield 1’s confirmed modes are the large-scale Conquest, the close-quarters Domination, and the inter-connected Operations, which features a series of maps and matches. For example, if the defenders fail to keep their objectives, they’ll retreat and regroup on a new map in a new match, and the battle will continue.

You can see the full lists of confirmed maps and modes below.


CONFIRMED MAPS

AMIENS

A destructive clash in a majestic city. Fight on the streets and squares in French city of Amiens during the German spring offensive. A struggle in crumbling alleys, a courthouse, around bridges and railways where the British and the Germans desperately seek to control the depths of the city.





THE ST. QUENTIN SCAR

Emerge yourself in a huge attack on the battlefields of northern France, as the German army throws everything they have to try to break through the British lines. Prepare for epic assaults as you push your way through the trenches of the St. Quentin Scar. Break through the fortified lines and assault the untouched village of Travecy.





MONTE GRAPPA

Host to one of the final battles of the war, among the peaks of kings in the Venetian Alps. Fight to control mountain forts high above the clouds, with the objective of utilising massive fort cannons to stop the advancing enemies as they scale the mountainside. The Austro Hungarian Empire has the advantage, but the Italian Army won’t stop until they’ve taken back what’s theirs.





EMPIRE’S EDGE

Along the Adriatic coast a fierce struggle for land and life is taking place. A rugged but fortified shore becomes the battlefield for an empire under siege. What was once a beautiful Mediterranean village by the coast is now transformed by mechanised war, where waves and dreadnought battleships pound the remains of Italy’s Great War.





CONFIRMED MODES

Conquest — a large-scale battle with up to 64 players fighting for objectives

Domination — smaller locations with objectives and an on-foot combat focus

Operations — a series of maps and rounds that are inter-connected by the matches’ results





CLASSES

WHICH BATTLEFIELD 1 CLASS IS RIGHT FOR YOU?

Like blowing up vehicles and close-quarters combat? Play as… the Assault class!
When you hear the rumble of a tank, you’ve got two options: you can run, or turn and fight. If you’re deploying as an Assault in Battlefield 1, you’re likely the kind of player that chooses the second path. Assaults come equipped with explosive Gadgets to combat vehicles, making them the go-to Class for taking down stuff that rolls, flies, sails, or does anything besides walk on two legs. These are your classic close-quarters specialists – if you’re facing one, you’re going to want to engage them from a distance, because once they close the gap you’ll lose your advantage.


Want nearly endless ammo for you and your squad? Play as… the Support class!
When you absolutely, positively want to keep your enemy from moving, the Support class provides sustained fire to take out enemies or suppress. Their weaponry is fit for close and medium range and typically has a high rate of fire, letting you lay down a steady stream of bullets towards anyone you’d rather keep in one place. And when it comes to bullets themselves, they’ve a trick up their sleeve: their Gadgets can keep teammates resupplied or help protect positions.

Enjoy keeping your teammates alive? Play as… the Medic class!
Medic: If you’ve played a Battlefield game, the cry of “Medic!” is pretty familiar. There’s very little more important when fighting than being able to protect the guy besides you, and that’s where the Medic class shines brightest. But in Battlefield 1, Medics aren’t just trained in the art of keeping their teammates healthy – they can repair vehicles, too. They can still hold their own in the combat department, with medium-range weapons that can put down an enemy so fast that healing an ally might not even be necessary.

Like taking down enemies from far, far away? Play as… the Scout class!
Scout/Recon: Scouts names do a pretty good job of describing what they do. These are your long-range specialist, able to take out enemies from afar with powerful sniper rifles. If you’re the kind of player that likes finding a nice, safe hill to hide on and engage enemies from a few hundred meters away, the Scout is definitely for you. But they are instrumental for team play as well – the Scout class can use its range and Gadgets to provide reconnaissance to their team, too, surveying the area and calling out locations for their teammates.

Want to jump into a vehicle and wreak havoc? Play as… the Pilot or Tanker!
Deploy into the driver seat of a plane or tank in Battlefield 1 and you’ll eschew your typical class in favor of the two new Vehicle classes. These replace your typical classes, letting you trade in your Medic or Support kit in favor of playing as a Tanker or Pilot. When you’re deploying into a tank or a plane,





FRENCH FORCES WILL BE PREMIUM DLC FOR BATTLEFIELD 1

ritain, Germany, the United States, the Austro-Hungarian Empire, Italy and the Ottomans: these will be Battlefield 1’s multiplayer belligerents at launch. If you have a passing interest in history, that list might seem a little short—almost as if a major player has been pegged for its own DLC.

With France confined for the campaign, there was an inkling it might be redeployed to DLC at a later date. Those suspicions have been confirmed by DICE’s Julien Wera, speaking to IGN France:

“To really do justice to the French army in multiplayer and, once again, to show a side that we’re not used to seeing, we have chosen to dedicate an entire premium expansion with special treatment after the launch of the game.”

That’s a rough Google translation, but the meaning is clear.

What I find strange is the decision to structure Battlefield 1’s DLC (because there was always going to be DLC) by army rather than by region or campaign. For example, the Brits will be duking it out over the French town of Amiens at launch.

The Russian Empire is still MIA.
