Battlefield 1: A new multiplayer map will use fog like Sinai Desert uses sand


Dynamic weather is hitting the battlefield in a big, big way.

At Gamescom, DICE’s Lars Gustavsson teased an as yet unannounced map within Battlefield 1 that takes advantage of a blinding, sweeping fog.

“It’s amazing, you know,” Gustavsson said, describing Battlefield 1‘s new dynamic weather systems to Stevivor. “Especially on a map I shouldn’t be mentioning yet.

“It suddenly goes totally silent in the heat of the battle when the fog kicks in [on this map],” he continued. “People can’t see much around them, and you notice the sudden silence in the office.

“You see shadows lurking and you don’t know if it’s friend or foe. I think it brings very different type of gameplay to the battlefield.”

Gustavsson previously told Stevivor that dynamic weather — like the fog in this instance — was replacing the scripted, “Levolution” events seen in the likes of Battlefield 4 and Battlefield: Hardline.
