Thanks to Origin Access and EA Access, Battlefield 1 will be playable to subscribers of either service from tomorrow, October 13.

Even if you aren’t particularly fussed on jumping ahead of the queue, make no mistake, the next fortnight will be chock-full of Battlefield 1 content, with DICE and EA planning to stream new gameplay footage – from both single and multiplayer modes – from tomorrow onwards. That means ardent fans ought to batten down the hatches in anticipation of a video onslaught and sure enough, we’ve included a few blistering new clips for your viewing pleasure.

Above, you’ll find footage of us storming through the opening prologue, while below you’ll see us taking on the “Through Mud and Blood” mission.
