Guess what? You can stop drooling over the same trailer for Battlefield 1 and start focusing on one of the most exciting events of the summer for FPS fans.

Welcome to Sinai
So what will you get to play? Well, you get Conquest and Rush game modes on the Sinai Desert map. This map allows for up to 64 players, a controllable Armored Train, horseback riding, and finally three new classes – Sentry, Flame Trooper, and Tank Hunter. Now August is still a long way away so Battlefield 1 Squads will stream some footage over Twitch on August 16th at 12 pm PT. If watching isn’t enough and you’re in Cologne, you can visit GAMESCOM and play the game there.
