Battlefield 1 Revolution and Incursions announced


While spectacular, 64-player battles are a hallmark of the Battlefield franchise, a new mode for Battlefield 1 will focus on war at a much smaller scale.

Today, during Electronic Arts' live show from Gamescom in Cologne, Germany, Electronic Arts shared news about its successful first-person shooter Battlefield 1.

Battlefield 1 Incursions is an intense, 5v5 strategy game mode coming to the game, with some alpha gameplay coming in September. Players will be able to choose from one of eight character kits (Trench Surgeon, Control Leader, AT Assault, Battle Mechanic, Mortar Support, Raid Leader, Shock Assault, Proximity Recon) in Incursions mode.

He stabbed the vehicle's driver, Pau Perez, to death and barreled through a checkpoint, authorities said. Hours later, he's believed to have helped carry out a linked attack Cambrils, south of Barcelona .

The mode is already up and running internally, and if you try the Battlefield 1 website you can try and take part in the PC-only closed alpha this September.

Registrations for the alpha are available right now on Battlefield's official site. Players will "rank up to gain access to improved weapons and abilities based on a combination of time and performance".

Revolution is out today on PS4, and Xbox One, priced $60. It includes all previously released DLC and the included premium pass will net players all future DLC for the game, including the upcoming In The Name of Tsar DLC.
