While we finally got a look at Battlefield 1’s single-player earlier this week, DICE has just announced that there will be more where that came from very soon. They will be streaming more single-player footage during TwitchCon, with the stream happening on October 1st.
Viewers will be able to check out the stream on the TwitchCon’s streaming page at 1 PM PT/4 PM ET, though the developers haven’t revealed exactly what parts of the single-player they’ll be showing off yet. So far we know that the game’s story takes an anthology format, with the game jumping around to several different settings and characters.
“One example is the War Story Through Mud and Blood,” reads a snippet from the Battlefield website. “It takes place late in the war and centers on a British Mark V Tank crew. The story focuses on a young soldier assigned to the crew as the tank’s driver. However, our protagonist has no experience of these modern war vehicles and need to learn – and learn fast. Our hero is also struggling with earning the trust of his fellow crew members, so there’s a social dynamic in the story, making the whole thing something personal. Danny Edwards, our driver character, is not an ace sniper. He’s not a crack pilot. He’s not a demo expert. He’s a former chauffeur – a volunteer new to the war. He can drive and he can fix things. That’s where we start.”
Battlefield 1 is set to launch for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC on October 21st.
