A New Battlefield 1 Multiplayer Map Will Use Fog, And “It’s amazing”
DICE has already announced that all the multiplayer maps in Battlefield 1 will feature dynamic weather. However, each map has will feature a different weather, like Sinai Desert map that uses sand storm, and another map which feautres rain. But DICE has revealed that another Battlefield 1 multiplayer map will make use of fog.
Speaking with Stevivor at Gamescom 2016, DICE’s Lars Gustavsson teased a new Battlefield 1 multiplayer map which will take advantage of fog like Sinai desert map takes advantage of sand.
According to Gustavsson, when the fog swoops in players will not be able to see much around them, and a sudden silence will kick in. He further added that players will be able to see shadows in the fogs but could not differentiate between friend or foe.
It’s amazing, you know. Especially on a map I shouldn’t be mentioning yet. It suddenly goes totally silent in the heat of the battle when the fog kicks in [on this map]. People can’t see much around them, and you notice the sudden silence in the office. You see shadows lurking and you don’t know if it’s friend or foe. I think it brings very different type of gameplay to the battlefield.
Recently, DICE revealed that Battlefield 1 singleplayer campaign will feature multiple stories with multiple characters, each character having a different point of view.
DICE has also revealed that in addition to usual classes in Battlefield 1 multiplayer, the game will also feature Elite classes,Flame Trooper, the Sentry, and the Tank Hunter, which are buffed-up infantry units equipped with devastating weapons that, if used effectively, can help turn the tide of battle.
Battlefield 1 is scheduled to release on September 21, 2016 for PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4. An open beta for the game will start on August 31, 2016.
