The brand-new Battlefield game has been unveiled by DICE and Electronic Arts and will be set during World War One, under the name of Battlefield 1.
The first official trailer was released during a live stream event on Friday night which revealed to the world that the series was heading back in time.
In the trailer itself if is all-out chaos as war engulfs the world. Several locations are shown in the reveal trailer, including Arabia, France, the Italian Alps and the famous trenches. Forest and jungle areas were also shown, with soldiers battling their way through the trees.
Alongside all of the cool locations in Battlefield 1, it seems that there will also be plenty of vehicles... and plenty of ways to enter the battle! You will get the chance to control biplanes, battleships and several different types of tank.
Trains are also visible in the video, but perhaps the most intriguing shots were of characters entering the battle on their horses in the Arabian Deserts. It very much looks like it is possible to be involved in tank vs horseback warfare!
DICE are promising plenty of customisation options when it comes to guns and other weapons. On the reveal trailer you can see flamethrowers, swords, shovels, bats and several guns including shotguns and early versions of the machine gun. Class types in the game will include standard assault, medic, support and scout.
It looks like the unpleasant gas attacks may also be featured, with gas masks being used in the reveal video. DICE say that players will be able to choose how to react in a chemical attack - either by putting their mask on and charging through it, or by locating a different route to avoid it.
Destruction is also visible throughout, with planes crashing into windmills and other buildings - causing them to collapse. Aircraft's parts were being blown-off during the battles in the skies. The destruction of buildings and vehicles is one of the main things that Battlefield has going for it in the 'war' against Call of Duty.
There will be a full story campaign and it is said that the multiplayer on the game will allow for a full suite of up to 64 players!
