DICE plans to show more footage from the single-player campaign of Battlefield 1.
Taking to Twitter, the studio announced that it is hosting a livestream for the game at TwitchCon 2016 this weekend. An extensive amount of gameplay footage is promised to be shown live for the very first time. It’s likely that we’ll be seeing the developers playing through the game’s first story chapter called “Friends in High Places.”

Battlefield 1 recently received a new trailer for its single-player mode. It was impressive and left everyone in awe. As revealed through the game’s ESRB rating, the campaign takes players through multiple theaters of war.
In total there are five “War Stories” to experience. Each has players filling a new role; such as taking to the skies as a fighter pilot, running through the desert as a Bedouin warrior, and driving tanks with armor crewman.
As for the multiplayer mode, we already tried it out during an open beta earlier this month. It was a smashing success for the publisher. Battlefield 1 registered over 13 million beta players, making it the largest beta test ever conducted in the company’s history. It managed to surpass last year’s Star Wars: Battlefront which saw nine million testers.
In related news, DICE has updated the game’s official website to contain more details on each of the single-player missions. These “War Stories” are called Friends in High Places, Nothing is Written, Through Mud and Blood, Avanti Savoia, and The Runner. You can read more on them here.
Battlefield 1 is scheduled to launch on October 21 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC. However, those with an EA or Origin Access subscription can play the game one week earlier.
