DICE's newest Battlefield game, Battlefield 1, officially launches today on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. It's possible you've already played a lot of the game, however, as the Play First Trial started back on October 13, while the $80 Early Enlister edition unlocked on October 18. Now, everyone can play.

 

Unlike past games in the series, Battlefield 1 is set during World War I and features weapons, maps, and features that represent the time. You can ride horses, invade castles, and drive tanks. The game also features one of history's smallest weapons, the palm-sized Kolibri pistol.

 

In addition to its multiplayer mode, Battlefield 1 offers a campaign that spans five different "War Stories." Each is made up of multiple chapters and puts you into the boots of characters like a Bedouin woman and a tank-driver, among others, across multiple theaters of war. You can even do something very cool with a bird.

 

Something else that's pretty cool about the game is that it has double rainbows.

"With Battlefield 1, EA and DICE have proven the viability of World War I as a time period worth revisiting in first-person shooters," reviewer Miguel Concepcion said. "It brings into focus countries and nationalities that do not exist today while also shedding light on how the outcome of that war has shaped our lives. As World War II shooters proved many years ago, no game can truly capture the entirety of a global conflict. This is why the focused structure of the War Stories anthology works well. Moreover, Operations succeeds as an effective educational primer on the battles that this gripping adversarial mode are based on. Battlefield 1 is just an introduction to one of the deadliest world events in history, but it is an outstanding, feature-rich package in both its emotional stories and strong multiplayer."
