DICE via official Battlefield Twitter account revealed the playable factions that will be available in Battlefield 1. Prepare to get a bit disappointed as the list is not as every one of us expected. According to the details shared by DICE, Battlefield 1 playable factions will not include French and Russians. Players will be able to play (in multiplayer) as British, German, Austro-Hungarian, Italian, Ottoman and American.
Why this list makes no sense to me, France and Russia played a huge part in World War 1, far more than America (if you guys are asking for comparison). America didn’t even join the World War until 1917.
Secondly, The start of the World War I was France/UK/Russia/Serbia vs Germany/Astro Hungary. How in the hell DICE could not add France and Russia as playable factions in Battlefield 1? We have contacted DICE for some official words on this, stay tuned as we will update this post as soon as we get to hear something from them.
In MP: British, German, Austro-Hungarian, Italian, Ottoman, and American. https://t.co/pDtTY14sU7
