Melee combat was reworked, with DICE introducing new melee weapons such as sabres, trench clubs, and shovels into the game. These melee weapons were divided into two groups: heavy and light.Players can also take control of various armored vehicles, including light and heavy tanks, armored trucks, biplane aircraft, and battleships, as well as ride horses into battle.Destructible environments and weapon customization, features present in the previous games, will return in Battlefield 1.
According to the game’s designer, Daniel Berlin, the campaign mode will have larger and more open environments than those in previous installments in the franchise, with more options and choices in terms of paths to completing levels and how to approach combat. Players will control several characters in the campaign.
The game’s multiplayer will support up to 64 players. The new squad system allows a group of players to enter and leave game servers together. According to Berlin, playing without joining a squad will make gameplay significantly more difficult. Multiplayer maps will be based on locations around the world, including Arabia, the Western Front, and the Alps.
