Battlefield 1, which is Electronic Arts’ latest installment for their Battlefield franchise, goes back to its roots as a historical shooter this time set in the first world war and features the latest updates to their Frostbite engine for one of the best-looking shooters of 2016. With a set release date of October 21, 2016 worldwide, EA decided to throw in a 10-hour trial of the game on October 13, 2016 but it seems that the company made the trial live one day before.
Early Access for Battlefield 1 Does Not Offer the Full Game
The Battlefield 1 trial’s early release might be to provide headroom for those who don’t have a speedy internet connection to download the game. Coming in at 44.95GB and 40.39GB for Xbox One and PC respectively, it’s not some indie game title you can download overnight with a below average internet connection. Nevertheless, the trial is now released and those who have downloaded the game already are now posting videos of their gameplay on the internet and it couldn’t look any better. The trial is also released 5-days prior to those who pre-ordered the $79.99 “Early Enlister Deluxe Edition” version of the game and it will allow you to migrate your progress from the trial to the full game once it gets release on the 21’s of October.
The 10-hour trial of Battlefield 1 comprises of two campaign missions: “Storm of Steel” and “Through Mud and Blood” as well as the multiplayer feature going live with four modes: “Conquest”, “Rush”, “Operations”, and “Domination” on five maps: St. Quentin Scar, Amiens, Sinai Desert (Which honestly looks a lot like Star Wars Battlefront), Fao Fortress, and Suez.EA’s historical shooter’s trial is only for PC and Xbox One players only leaving the PS4 users to wait until the full game is released more than a week after the trial goes live.
Battlefield 1’s play first trial is limited to a total of 10 hours of everything including sitting in the menu screen so once you get yourself a dose of the two campaign missions, the best thing to do is head on over to multiplayer and make the most of what the limited gameplay time has to offer. Bonuses for those who played all 10 hours of the trial will get a battlepack waiting for them upon launch of the full game. However the Early Enlister Deluxe Edition mentioned earlier gives the full game three days prior to the October 21 release; then again it’s not free if you so choose to try out the game first, then the 10-hour trial is ready for you to download now.
