Battlefield 1, one of the most anticipated shooters of this year is all set for release within a couple of weeks from now. The beta for the game ran for a week, early last month where more than 13.2 million players participated, highest till date. As the release date gets nearer, we are more excited about the game and the developer keeps updating about the new developments and information about the game.
Battlefield 1 Gets Spectator mode, has Cinematic Tools for Recording
A few hours ago, DICE confirmed that the Battlefield 1 will be getting spectator mode at launch, a mode that will allow players to capture in-game videos and screenshots on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. There are multiple options in the mode such as “director’s camera” which follows a soldier and his movements, allowing you to adjust the angle and position of the camera.
Another mode is “Free Camera”, which allows the spectator to place multiple cameras around the map and switch between them whenever he likes. According to the developers, settings for each camera can be adjusted separately. Furthermore, the players can change Field Of View (FOV) and Depth Of Field settings and apply different filters for the gameplay recording. A YouTuber Berdu was given early access to the Battlefield 1 spectator mode by EA, who shows how the mode works in his new video.
According to Berdu, “A low FOV value of 30 is a good choice for close-up action shots”, while changing the value of depth of field will allow players to control camera blur. There are filters, including noir, and each one have a strength slider that allows players to fine-tune their shots. Thankfully, there will be an option to hide the HUD in the spectator mode.
Battlefield 1 is scheduled for release on October 21st for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One while the owners of Special Edition will be given 3 days early access to the game. Stay tuned for more updates!
