We’ve been listening to the community calls for real competitive support in Battlefield for some time now, and we are finally ready to start that journey with you. Setting out, we knew we needed to get this right and deliver a project we could be proud to call a competitive Battlefield experience. Today, we can finally announce the result: The Battlefield 1 Incursions Closed Alpha.
Incursions is the beginning of a new, competitive side of Battlefield. It’s got intense tactical matches that reward skill, strategy, and teamwork. And at its heart, it’s got everything that makes Battlefield special.
5-versus-5 Focused Battles
The Battlefield 1 Incursions Closed Alpha brings the authenticity of Battlefield 1 to a contained, small-scale battle. With just 5 team members, every move, every action and every kill matters to the outcome of the match. The scoring system emphasizes teamplay and working together like never before.
From the very start, we knew: It wouldn’t be Battlefield without vehicles. Vehicles can turn the tide of an Incursions Closed Alpha match. But they aren’t unstoppable, and destroying an enemy vehicle can be just as decisive as deploying one.
In every Battlefield 1 Incursions Closed Alpha match, your choice of kit and by extension the team composition is critical to success. Through additions like a lobby-based matchmaker, a draft phase, and per-game progression, we can ensure there are more strategic layers to consider than ever before. 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. Each player has a chance to be the hero that saves the day and wins the match for their team.
Incursions is a whole new chapter for Battlefield, and one which would not exist without your passion. This announcement is just the beginning – starting with the Closed Alpha, we will update, improve, and develop Incursions. Of course, the features, content, and systems of Battlefield 1 Incursions may change between Closed Alpha and its final, finished form. Our goal is to always find new ways to make this experience better, and we’re always listening to what you have to say.
Our official Incursions subreddit will serve as the hub for everything Incursions, and is where everyone’s welcome.
