Almost every weapon in Battlefield 1 will allow players to attach deadly bayonets and charge at foes in brutal melee combat, Electronic Arts has revealed.
The publisher already mentioned before how the melee combat aspect has been severely changed in comparison to previous installments in the series. This time around, players will actually have to deal with different statistics for each melee weapon. There’s a lot of diversity in this regard and players will have to choose their melee weapons based on the situation at hand.
That being said, melee combat isn’t the only thing that Battlefield 1 is changing around. According to the publisher, this year’s Battlefield game is going to bring some “interesting” changes for players interested in opting for the long-range role. New gameplay mechanics will force the player to change his/her location to gain advantage. Developer DICE stated that snipers coming in from Battlefield 3 and 4 will appreciate how Battlefield 1 has tweaked the sniper class.
EA has also confirmed the inclusion of skins in the game. More on that will be shared later, leaving us to wonder just what kind of camoflouge patterns and other cosmetic goodies will adhere to the World War setting.
A major reveal session is planned for Battlefield 1 at EA Play later this week. Rather than joining E3 2016, EA has decided to host its own event this year. EA Play will take place on Sunday, June 12 and will officially unveil the multiplayer portion of Battlefield 1 in one mega 64-player online match.
Battlefield 1 is scheduled for release in October for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
