Battlefield 1 release date is approaching fast. With the official launch date just a couple of weeks away, Electronic Arts is doing all the efforts promoting their upcoming shooter game. It was recently reported that the company had just started a week full of live streams of the two-hour game. In addition, it seems like EA has another surprise for their Battlefield 1 players. It was just announced that players could get a special weapon skin and dog tag from the forthcoming Battlefield 1.
According to Game Rant, EA said that players could acquire the said items prior to the game's release by playing Battlefield 4 and Battlefield Hardline. As announced, players will need to complete the M1911 community mission by getting 100 kills using the M1911 in either Battlefield 4 or Hardline. The community mission is available anytime between October 12 at 9:00 AM PT and October 17 at 9:00 AM PT. Upon completion, players will get "The Incinerator" weapon skin for M1911 pistol and a Road to Battlefield 1 dog tag.
The report also states that Battlefield 1 players will receive a gold Battlepack in Battlefield 4 or Hardline, depending on which game players complete the mission in. For those who are interested in learning more about the said promotion, additional details are provided in the official Battlefield blog. On the other hand, players who are subscribed to EA or Origin Access on PC can also experience Battlefield 1. Additionally, Play First is only a segment of the full Battlefield game.
Owners of PlayStation 4 can experience the game as early as October 18 if they purchase the Early Enlister Deluxe Edition. While PS4 players may be missing out on the benefits from EA and Origin Access perks, all three platforms still have their very own benefits. More Battlefield 1 guides coming soon. Stay tuned.
Battlefield 1 will be out officially on October 21, 2016 for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
