There's a ton of variety on land, sea, and air
From light tanks to landships and motorcycles, the ground game in Battlefield 1 provide plenty of variety. The same goes for the battles at sea, where you'll be able to captain fast, agile torpedo boats and an armored landing craft. And if you want to take to the sky, there's plenty of different types of air vehicles to choose from.
Aircraft are nimble and deadly
You'll be able to fight for control of the skies in nimble fighters, squad up in two-seat attack planes or suppress foes on the ground with devastating bombers. World War I saw the birth of dogfighting, and Battlefield 1 brings some of the best aerial combat in the franchise's history.
Some plane types have seats for teammates
What's better than chasing an enemy plane and blasting them out of the sky? Having your squad up in the air with you. Some of the planes have spots for gunners, something we know Battlefield 1942 fans have wanted to see for a while.
There are some absolutely massive vehicles
Battlefield 1 includes some of the largest vehicles in Battlefield history. If you watch the trailer you can see some in action, and we'll have more to say about these in the near future.
Vehicle destruction is more important than ever
Once your plane, tank, or boat has taken enough damage, you'll start to see an impact not just on how it looks, but how it feels. Shooting at airplane wings, for example, can cause them to break and splinter, altering the aerodynamics of the plane. In the same way, destroying the gun stations on a tank will disable those weapons until repaired.
You can choose your tank or airplane type when spawning
Know how you get to choose which sniper rifle you want to use when spawning as a Scout? The same goes for the type of vehicle you want to pilot when spawning as a Pilot or Tanker. On maps and modes with these vehicles, you'll be able to pick whichever tank or plane you want, letting you choose the right vehicle for the right situation.
Vehicles have their own Classes and Loadouts
When you decide to spawn as the Tanker or Pilot Vehicle Class, you'll have the ability to choose your vehicle and its loadout. Each has a different weapon setup, equipment, and sometimes even different passenger setups as well. Any Class can still use any vehicle, but Tankers and Pilots will let you focus on vehicular combat.
We’ve made a lot of physics improvements
Airplane aerodynamics feel more physical than in previous games; you really feel gravity and you can even perform controlled stalls. Tank tracks easily climb over most objects now, and can drive through buildings like a warm knife through butter.
