Battlefield 1 reveals early deployment details for Origin subscribers

Here’s the Play First Trial’s dates, maps, modes, and play time.

We already know the nine maps and six modes Battlefield 1 will boast at launch next month, however EA and DICE have now revealed what Origin Access subscribers can sink their bayonets into a whole eight days ahead of the WW1 simulation’s October 21 release. 

From October 13 onward, those signed up to the early access initiative will be privy to five maps—St. Quentin Scar, Amiens, the Sinai Desert, Fao Fortress, and Suez—across the game’s Conquest, Rush, Operations, and Domination multiplayer modes. Single-player is teased too via the Storm of Steel and Through Mud and Blood missions—all of which grants Origin members “ten hours of game time at the dawn of all-out war.”

As you might expect, progress carries over into the main game, should you decide to purchase after the trial ends on October 20. If you manage to power through the entire ten hours in that time, you’ll be awarded a Battlepack in the full game. 

“After the release of the Early Enlister Deluxe Edition, the rest of the maps and modes will open up (unless you’ve used all of your play time, that is),” reads a statement on the Battlefield 1 site. “EA Access and Origin Access members also get 10 percent off if they decide to pick up the game, too. We can't wait to see you on the battlefield.”

Battlefield 1 lands October 21. Evan’s thoughts on the open beta are worth checking out in the interim, so too are the game’s pretty hefty system requirements.
