A new game mode has been announced for Battlefield 1, which will see the results of one round affect future rounds.
In Operations, players will have “the opportunity to fight a sequence of inter-connected battles.” A blog post on the Battlefield website outlines that Operations “offer epic journeys across several maps based upon real battles of World War I.” DICE says that this adds a new layer of scale and variety to battles.
Attackers are tasked with pressing forward and capturing positions on a map. Once they capture all the necessary points on a map, the defenders will fall back and regroup on a different map.
The blog post adds that the team wanted to create “something epic and compelling for players who wanted a chance to immerse themselves in this first global war, and capture the stories of how different battles were deeply connected to one another.”
Battlefield 1 will be released on October 21.
