Battlefield 1 brings EA’s long-running shooter series back to its roots with a World War I-era narrative inspired by real-world events. Featuring period-specific weaponry like flamethrowers, artillery, and bolt-action rifles, Battlefield 1 mixes traditional first-person shooter gameplay with expanded melee combat mechanics.

Today’s trailer introduces the combatants that players will team up with during Battlefield 1‘s campaign. Specific characters appear to be tied to vehicle segments, serving as pilots or drivers while players take defensive measures and spearhead counterattacks.

In addition to its core single-player campaign, the game also includes a collection of multiplayer maps that accommodate up to 64 players at once. Players can assume offensive, defensive, or support roles during Battlefield 1 multiplayer matches by choosing among eight playable classes, including Assault, Tanker, Medic, Scout, and Cavalry.

Battlefield 1 will hit retail next month in standard and Early Enlister Deluxe Edition packages. The Early Enlister Deluxe Edition includes the Red Baron and Lawrence of Arabia downloadable add-on packs, each of which offers a unique collection of exclusive weapons, vehicles, and items. The Early Enlister package also grants access to Battlefield 1‘s single-player and multiplayer content three days in advance of its public retail release.

Longtime series fans may instead opt for the game’s Amazon-exclusive Collector’s Edition, which includes all Deluxe Edition content alongside a collectible 14″ statue, a cloth poster, a deck of themed playing cards, a steelbook case, and a replica carrier pigeon tube, in addition to a collection of exclusive DLC.

Battlefield 1 launches worldwide for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Windows PC platforms on October 21.

Valheim finally comes to Xbox next month with full crossplay
Valheim player standing in a field.

Iron Gate Studio and Coffee Stain Publishing confirmed that the Xbox Series X/S and Xbox One versions of Valheim will finally launch on March 14. The early access Xbox Game Preview title will be included as part of the Xbox Game Pass subscription when it releases on consoles, as it is already available via the PC version of the service.

The announcement came as part of IGN's 2023 Fan Fest event. In addition to a release date announcement, we also saw a gameplay trailer showing it running on Xbox Series X, which seemed on par with how the game runs on higher-end PCs. We also learned that Valheim will support full crossplay between PC and Xbox consoles when it finally launches. This release marks the first time Valheim will be available on console since the fantasy survival game rose to popularity in early 2021. For the time being, this also means that Valheim is an Xbox console exclusive.

PlayStation Plus just set a new first-party precedent with Horizon Forbidden West
Horizon: Forbidden West

Sony revealed the games coming to PlayStation Plus Premium and PlayStation Plus Extra this month on February 21, and it's the best month that the service has had since it launched in the summer of 2022. Not only are some great PS1 classics like The Legend of Dragoon and Wild Arms 2 coming to the service, but Horizon Forbbiden West is getting added as well.
Horizon Forbidden West coming to the service one year after launch is a big deal because Sony has been resistant to putting recent first-party PS5 games on its subscription service. While it's still not adding first-party titles on day one like Xbox Game Pass does, this is possibly our first indication of how Sony will handle adding its own games to the subscription. It's not the only PS4 and PS5 title coming to the service this month either, as the following strong lineup of games was also confirmed to be coming on February 21.

The Quarry (PS4, PS5)
Resident Evil VII Biohazard (PS4)
Outriders (PS4, PS5)
Scarlet Nexus (PS4, PS5)
Borderlands 3 (PS4, PS5) 
Tekken 7 (PS4, PS5)
Ace Combat 7: Skies Unknown (PS4)
Earth Defense Force 5 (PS4)
Oninaki (PS4)
Lost Sphear (PS4)
I Am Setsuna (PS4) 
The Forgotten City (PS4, PS5) 
Destroy All Humans! (PS4)
