Battlefield 1 changed the war game franchise in many ways. But, if you haven’t gotten the chance to play it yet, you might want to try it now, as EA and DICE revealed at Gamescom 2017 that Battlefield 1: Revolution has just released on Xbox One, PS4 and PC. This compilation of the title brings not only the base game, but all the content that has been released for it, and will include the upcoming content as well. Here’s the official synopsis and trailer for the game:
Battlefield 1 took a big risk by rewinding the clock and setting the game in World War I. But, it turned out for the best, as critics and fans have loved the fresh experience. And now, the team at DICE are working on the next expansion of that. At Gamescom 2017, Battlefield 1 Incursions was revealed.
EA and DICE have unveiled the upcoming downloadable content that will be coming to Battlefield 1 in the coming months. The first piece of content is the They Shall Not Pass pack that is due to release this month, which will be followed by three more pieces of content over the following months.
Players who have an EA Access subscription can get hold of the Battlefield 1 trial a day earlier than expected, as the game has now gone live on the system and is now available to download. It was initially due to go online on October 13.
Typically, in most first person shooter games, there’s one singular overarching story that players go through. You usually play as one character, and see the world through their perspective. Battlefield 1 however is changing the formula a bit, and creating something rather unique.
The march to the release of Battlefield 1 continues on. Electronic Arts and DICE released a new trailer this week for Battlefield 1. The latest video showcases the game’s very intense looking single-player campaign. You can check out the video, which features new gameplay footage, in the player below.
Battlefield 1 has gotten a lot of buzz since its reveal, and the Beta it recently had featured over 13.2 million players during its run.
EA have been running an exclusive alpha test for their upcoming shooter Battlefield 1 with a small group of users.

Battlefield 1 is taking a different path than other war games in that it’s being set in World War 1. As EA Studios boss, Patrick Söderlund notes though at the investor briefing yesterday, that pitch didn’t go over well at first.
Battlefield has long tried to overtake Call of Duty in the “war game” department. Despite being the original one, Call of Duty has surpassed it on many levels, despite some impressive games. But also, Battlefield games are now infamous for their releases, and the bugs that come with them. In an interview with GamesBeat, Lead Designer for Battlefield 1 Daniel Berlin talked about how the game came to be, and how they hope to improve from where Battlefield 4 failed.
