COLD FRONT

EDGE - - PLAY -

That Bat­tle­field 1 is a good­look­ing game should come as no sur­prise, but DICE has com­bined pho­togram­me­try and its Frost­bite en­gine to as­ton­ish­ing ef­fect. Ev­ery lo­ca­tion is stun­ning, whether it’s the crisp, ver­tig­i­nous moun­tain vis­tas of the Swiss alps, an Ara­bian desert en­gulfed by a vi­o­lent sand­storm, or the rain­lashed hell of no man’s land at the Western front. There’s a bleak beauty to ev­ery­thing and, de­spite spec­tac­u­lar views, it’s a wel­come re­straint that sees the set-piece trans­for­ma­tions of Bat­tle­field 4 re­placed with dy­namic weather and tac­tic-chang­ing ter­rain de­for­ma­tion.
