Battlefield 1’s First Play Trial on EA Access includes an engrossing 90 minute single-player War Story mission called “Through Mud and Blood”. It’s available to play right now, along with the short prologue, for EA Access subscribers.
We posted the 13-minute prologue earlier this morning. If you’re keen to see more of Battlefield 1’s shrouded in secrecy single-player, we present an entire War Story mission (1 of 5) — my with noob deaths omitted.
This is a hefty chuck of gameplay. We recommend watching the prologue for quick a taste (it’s basically a tutorial), and this video for a serious look at how single-player gameplay performs.
Battlefield 1’s single-player is split into five independent War Stories, plus the prologue, which can be played in any order. Watching this one won’t spoil the other four — and if you’re well versed in World War I history, the events of each of them won’t come as a surprise, anyhow.
Primarily controlling an unreliable Mark V tank, and supporting it on foot, this mission is set late in the war. Despite its shortcomings, the tank is able to penetrate the German strongholds that defy all else. On February 17, 1918, British forces prepare to launch a mass assault on the town of Cambrai.
Battlefield 1 will be released in Australia on October 21 for Xbox One, PS4 and PC. The First Play Trial content is now available to EA Access subscribers on Xbox One and PC.
