New Battlefield 1 teaser features heavy-duty firepower

Get a taste of what an Arditi can do.

EA has released another short teaser for Battlefield 1's campaign, providing a brief look at the Avanti Savoia mission. As previously detailed, in this mission players take control of a soldier in the Italian mountaineer regiment.

As you can see in the video, this soldier is wearing the Arditi armor and serves as a shock trooper, breaking through enemy defences. In the case of the character featured in teaser, that means using a heavy-duty machine gun and a flamethrower.

The previous Battlefield 1 campaign teaser was for Nothing is Written, which involves playing as a Bedouin warrior and fighting alongside the legendary Lawrence of Arabia.

Battlefield 1's campaign is made up of five "war stories." Along with Avanti Savoia and Nothing is Written, the remaining chapters are called Friends in High Places, Through Mud and Blood, and The Runner. You can read about each of these missions here.

Developer DICE has said the goal of these missions is to spotlight lesser-known elements of World War I.

"When we set out on this game, we wanted to depict not just the common view of what the war was like," said lead designer Daniel Berlin. "We wanted to challenge some preconceptions. We want to delve into some of the unknowns of WW1. Maybe people don't know that this person fought or that person fought, that this army was involved. We're stretching out and bringing all those stories into the game."

Battlefield 1 comes out on October 21 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC. EA/Origin Access members can start playing on October 13, while people who buy the Early Enlister edition can get in on October 18.
