Huge 64-player battles are a hallmark for the Battlefield franchise, a new mode for Battlefield 1 will focus on war at a much smaller scale. That new mode, Incursions, will introduce 5v5 battles to Battlefield 1 starting in September and is “optimized for competition,” EA said.
Electronic Arts and DICE announced Battlefield 1 Incursions at Gamescom 2017 today. The mode will be a competitive, team-based battle featuring infantry and vehicles. 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. A closed alpha test for Battlefield 1 Incursions will go live in September. Battlefield 1 Revolution is available now on PlayStation 4, Windows PC via Origin and Xbox One.
