• Battlefield 1 Introduces More Ways to Play: Lupkow Pass, Revolution, and Incursions

    EA and DICE revealed two new ways to play Battlefield 1 at Gamescom 2017. The first is Battlefield 1 Revolution, which is essentially a package deal of the game that includes the game, the DLC, and a couple of added bonuses. The second is Battlefield 1 Incursions which is being "optimized for competition" and is being developed in collaboration with players.

    First up, a look at Battlefield 1 Revolution.

    Battlefield 1 Revolution contains the Battlefield 1 base game and Battlefield 1 Premium Pass which includes four themed expansion packs*, each filled with all new maps, new modes and more, making it the complete Battlefield 1 experience. Players will have immediate access to Battlefield 1 They Shall Not Pass, featuring six maps including the game’s first night maps, Nivelle Nights and Prise de Tahure. Players can further expand the battle with Battlefield 1 Revolution in Battlefield 1 In the Name of the Tsar in September, partake in amphibious warfare in Battlefield 1 Turning Tides set to launch in December, and the most infamous battles of the Great War in Battlefield 1 Apocalypse, available in early 2018. Those who purchase Battlefield 1 Revolution will also receive the Red Baron Pack, Lawrence of Arabia Pack and Hellfighter Pack which contain themed weapons, vehicles and emblems based on the famous heroes and units.

    Also available today is the first map from the In the Name of the Tsar expanion. The map, Lupkow Pass, is available right now for those that have the Season Pass.

    Also available today for those that own Battlefield 1 Revolution or Battlefield 1 Premium Pass is Lupkow Pass, the first map to be released from the upcoming expansion In the Name of the Tsar. In Lupkow Pass, players can battle it out in the snow-covered ravines and treacherous vertical drops of World War I. Then, when the full expansion releases in early September, players will further enter the war’s biggest front with the Russian Army and the Women’s Battalion of Death with five additional all new maps and two new Operations. In the Name of the Tsar also includes 11 new weapons, the new Ilya-Muromets Heavy Bomber vehicle, the Putilov-Garford Heavy Armored Car, the new Supply Drop game mode, new medals, dog tags, service stars and more, making it the most extensive update in Battlefield franchise history.

    The next "big" announcement is for Battlefield 1 Incursions. You can register for a chance to play the alpha of Incursions right now. This is essentially an esports focused Battlefield 1 mode (game?) that focuses on 5 vs 5 gameplay. Because when you think of Battlefield, you think of small scale battles.

    A new competitive Battlefield 1 experience developed in collaboration with the community.
    There’s nowhere to hide. No way to retreat. In the Battlefield 1 Incursions Closed Alpha, tightly-focused maps set the field for intense, tactical matches designed to test the limits of your skill and teamwork in the crucible of competition. With the inclusion of Battlefield staples like soldier classes and vehicles, this is an experience that draws from everything that makes Battlefield special.

    5-versus-5 Focused Battles
    Built in collaboration with the community, the Battlefield 1 Incursions Closed Alpha brings the authenticity of Battlefield 1 to a contained, small-scale battle. The Battlefield 1 Incursions Closed Alpha’s uniquely designed smaller matches make it more than just another mode.

    It wouldn’t be Battlefield without vehicles. Much like the Behemoths in the main Battlefield 1 experience, vehicles can turn the tide of an Incursions Closed Alpha match. But they aren’t unstoppable, and destroying an enemy vehicle can be just as decisive as deploying one.

      Nothing like vehicles in tight maps!

      I guess they're out of ideas and its time to "rehash" the "competitive" label some, but in a CoD format! Horay!

      I don't see how 5v5 in close quarter maps is what makes Battlefield special at any time. I don't seem to recall that in the past. I must have missed some game modes over the years.

    E3 was last week and I do believe the dust has finally settled. I decided, for my own sanity really, to try to take things a bit slower this year with getting news up from the event. This was...
