Top 6 new features in Battlefield 1Battlefield 1 is shaping up to be the most significant addition to the series in years. From the behemoths to the beta changes, GameSpot's Spencer Kalin-Mulder lists Battlefield 1's top new features.
[SOUND] Battlefield 1 is finally here and all the [UNKNOWN] mud and bloody glory for all the taken. We finally got in our hands on the finished product and to kick things off here are top 6 newest features added to Battlefield 1. [MUSIC] We've seen Zeppelins to heavily armored trains in the past, but now the third Behemoth is here the Threadnot. This battleship is ready to sink your dreams of victory with one of its four heavy cannons that are powerful enough to level capture points on site. Followed by also having anti-infantry guns mounted on its side, it's perfect to support infantry pushing up the enemy beach head. It took all of my grenades, a few heavy cannon shells from my base defenses, a few war planes to slow this ship down. Even then, it will leave its mark on the field and in your soldiers' minds even as it sinks into the sea. [NOISE] [BLANK_AUDIO] Speaking of boats, returning from BF4 are attack boats, to combat both dreadnoughts and land based fortresses. These fast and agile boats are excellent for covering long distances, allowing yourself to flank your enemies. Also when driving, you have two torpedos that can do heavy damage to other boats and or ships in your sights. Sporting heavy machine guns on both sides and in front of your boat for your passengers, this thing is ready to take on the high seas for any mission you see fit. [MUSIC] So new equipment has returned from the days of BF4, such as the motor for the support class, with three different types of ammunition and a surprising high slash damage upon hitting a target. These motors are the go to weapons for launching a full frontal assault on well defended enemy target Able to select your target area on the mini map made this super useful on the urban map of arms, where enemy soldiers hide in and bombed out houses all over the place. This is a go-to weapon to use to take out pesky enemies hiding in those houses. [SOUND] [NOISE] A new Sentry kit has made it's way in the form of a two magazine SMG that can drop it's foes faster than you can blink. Just like it's cousins the flame thrower and the heavy machine gun. This kit gives you full protection and knights in shining armor look. Along with a weapon that is just too powerful to be true. Just five rounds in a 25 round magazine can drop any player, regardless of the character he plays. This kind of fire power helped lead me to a 69 kill to 2 death ratio in just one round. Let's just say my opponents weren't too happy about getting killed so quickly. But hey, it's war, and it sucks for them. [NOISE] [MUSIC] The Maps in Battlefield 1's final build offer a ton of variety, from fighting in the snowy mountains in Italy to the lushful forests of the Argonne, to the sun setting ocean coast of Saudi Arabia, every map has it's own unique beauty that we haven't seen since Bad Company 2. [MUSIC] The same can also be said about the detail and destruction each map has. Fortresses turn inside out from bombing, villages, torn to pieces by tank fire and mountaintops covered in enemy shell fire. All equals to a surreal environment settings that'll pull you into the conflict and won't let you go. Not that you would want to of course. [MUSIC] Some changes have been made since the beta. The horse, for example, no longer has the wide range to hit and kill your opponents. So if you relied heavily on running people over, you might be up for a surprise. Another thing, too, is the assault class still carries the majority of the explosives. But now, the medic and support classes can do more damage to vehicles, which no longer leave the job to just one character. A new mode titled operations, which is across between rush and conquest, have players battle it out to hold capture points in fixed locations on each sections of the map, with attacking independent teams, with the behemoths making a more important role to play. It's a mode that feels like something we as Battlefield has been waiting for, for a long time. Little changes to audio and environment weather also plays a part in the player to player need on a whole new level. For so long I wanted to relive those awesome close-call battles and fully destroyed maps back in bad company two. Battlefield 3, 4, and Hardline failed to give me that rush I missed but Battlefield 1 feels like the game to keep me and my friends busy for months to come. If you're a veteran of the series but are on the fence about jumping into this one, take it from me. You will find the same adrenaline rush. Shootout mayhem and vehicle warfare the series has been missing. Is there anything you want to see or hope for in the months to come to support Battlefield one. Feel free to leave your comments below and until time, we'll see you on the battlefield. And keep it here on Gamespot for all your gaming needs. [SOUND] [MUSIC]
