COMPETITIVE—THE BATTLEFIELD WAY

A new competitive Battlefield 1 experience developed in collaboration with the community.

There’s nowhere to hide. No way to retreat. In Battlefield 1 Incursions (available on PC), tightly-focused maps set the field for intense, tactical matches designed to test the limits of your skill and teamwork at the highest level of competition. With the inclusion of Battlefield staples like soldier classes and vehicles, this is a frontier that draws from everything that makes Battlefield special.

5-versus-5 Focused Battles

Built in collaboration with the community, Battlefield 1 Incursions brings the authenticity of Battlefield 1 to a contained, small-scale battle. The uniquely designed tighter matches of Battlefield 1 Incursions make it more than just another mode. 

Vehicles

It wouldn’t be Battlefield without vehicles. Much like the Behemoths in the main Battlefield 1 experience, vehicles can turn the tide of a Battlefield 1 Incursions match. But they aren’t unstoppable, and destroying an enemy vehicle can be just as decisive as deploying one.

Strategic Depth

Your choices in loadout and role in your squad are critical, and every destroyed piece of environment can shift the entire momentum of battle. Only the sharpest strategic teams will rise to the top of the competition.

Epic Battlefield Moments

The impact of “Only In Battlefield” moments lands even harder as every point, every move, and every bullet becomes the difference between victory and defeat. Scoring has been overhauled to create opportunities for dramatic comebacks and nail-biting upsets.

Discover Battlefield 1 Incursions for yourself as it commences a new phase with the help of the community. Invitations will be limited, so register now for your chance to help define this new chapter for Battlefield.

The Battlefield 1 Incursions Community Environment (formerly known as Alpha) is part of the ongoing journey where the Battlefield 1 Incursions development team collaborates with the global Battlefield community to craft a long-term competitive experience.

Welcome to competitive — the Battlefield way.

What sets Battlefield 1 Incursions apart from other FPS competitors?

The Battlefield 1 Incursions Closed Alpha is unique in that it has both infantry and vehicle combat, large scale destruction, and relies heavily on strategy and teamwork.

How many players does the mode support?

The Battlefield 1 Incursions Closed Alpha is a 5v5 mode that includes one vehicle per team. The vehicle can be used at any time during a match, but the team can only use one vehicle at a time.

What maps are available to play on?

In the Battlefield 1 Incursions Community Environment, players will be able to fight on a scaled down version of the Giant’s Shadow map. The map of open ground and rivers alongside the Cateau-Wassigny railway has been modified for a tight 5v5 battle. We’ll have more information to share in the months to come.

Will all classes be available?

Battlefield 1 Incursions features Kits – a subset of the regular Classes. Each Kit is designed to represent a specialized role on the battlefield, with both unique features and limitations to gameplay. Gameplay from all Classes will be represented through these Kits in the Community Environment, with more to come down the line. For the Battlefield 1 Incursions Community Environment we will start with eight kits:

Trench Surgeon: The medic of the team, able to heal and revive fallen team members.

Control Leader: A master of vision denial with smoke grenades en masse, the Control Leader is the backline of the squad and can be spawned on while out of combat.

AT Assault: Specialized in taking out enemy vehicles, the AT Assault is every vehicle operator's nightmare.

Battle Mechanic: The primary job is to operate the team vehicles. Movement and positioning separate the great vehicle operators from the good.

Mortar Support: Raining down explosives on foes and providing ammo for friends, the Mortar Support is superb at controlling areas from afar.

Raid Leader: Getting up close and personal, the Raid Leader can place spawn beacons for reinforcements.

Shock Assault: Packing a punch against both infantry and vehicles, the Shock Assault is well-rounded in their ability to make things go BOOM!

Proximity Recon: Excels at obtaining information for the team, and using that intel to dispose of enemies up close.

What weapons will be available?

Each kit has access to a limited amount of weapons and each weapon category is represented in the Battlefield 1 Incursions Closed Alpha, so there will be long-distance bolt-action rifles, as well as LMGs, sub-machine guns, and more.

What vehicles will be available?

In the Closed Alpha, the light tank and armored car will be available to play.

When will the competitive season kick off and how will the tournament structure work?

There is nothing to announce at this time. The current focus of the Battlefield 1 development team is to create a great competitive experience together with the Battlefield community.

Why is Battlefield introducing a competitive mode now?

Battlefield 1 Incursions has been underway at DICE for quite some time. After examining previous attempts at competitive play, the development team is building a competitive experience from the ground up.
