New Video Explores The Historically Inspired Weapons Players Will Utilize

EA has released a video showcasing the some of the weapons available in Battlefield 1 as part of a new gameplay video series leading up to the game's October launch.  

In the video, we get a look at not only some of the weapons in action, but how the developers researched their use during WWI before implementing them in Battlefield 1. However, DICE is not going for complete historical accuracy. Vehicle and weapon animator Christofer Brandtieng states,  "We're not recreating the old, the past. We're taking that as an inspiration and then we're trying to take this into a modern perspective."

The 22-player Championship can also be used for league play, but all the details of this structure are not spelled out yet.

Seven Key Takeaways From The NHL 17 Beta

We've spent the past several days bag skating through the NHL 17 beta. After touring the online versus, EASHL, and Hockey Ultimate Team offerings, we have some key takeaways the direction the game seems to be heading in advance of its September 13 release date on Xbox One and PlayStation 4.

If you haven't been keeping up with the news on NHL 17, you can dive deep here before you get to our beta impressions. 

New Classes Give More Variety To EASHLWith the return of the EASHL last year, EA stripped away the player-controlled rating progression and introduced classes in hopes of creating a more balanced play experience. That new approach largely worked, but the limited variety of play styles wasn’t representative of the diversity of players found in the NHL. This year, NHL 17 brings four new classes into the fold, and we went hands on to check them out.
