RageQuitters Plays: 30 Minutes of EPIC Battlefield 1 Campaign on PC.
Fight across the globe in a gripping anthology of War Stories.
WARNING – there may be story spoilers. Annotations have been added so you can skip directly to the game play.
In Battlefield 1 you’ll experience a series of War Stories: personal stories focusing on different protagonists with unique backgrounds and skills. While the characters are at war, the stories in Battlefield 1 are personal. They’re about people rather than history or battles.

One key inspiration for single player has been how people think, act, and play in Battlefield 1 multiplayer. Playing Battlefieldgames, you usually have an objective, a loadout, and a plan. That plan often comes apart as you’re realizing it, and then you have to improvise to make do based on the enemies and vehicles you might be facing.
We’re embracing systemic gameplay and the freedom that makes Battlefield the high-agency game that it is.
For instance, in the aforementioned Through Mud and Blood there is a part we call The Fog of War. Here you suddenly find yourself in a misty forest. Due to the low visibility you’re moving ahead of your tank on foot, clearing camps of enemies. If you like, you can use explosives to blow up the enemies’ anti-tank weapons, or you can sneak up and do melee attacks.
Eventually you’ll come across a relatively large base with field guns you can either destroy to protect your tank – or use against the enemies. You’ll also have the option of taking out an enemy tank crew, which suddenly gives you access to an enemy vehicle that you can seize for the encounter. This is all designed to encourage players to play it their way – just like in multiplayer.
