If you missed the Battlefield Squads multiplayer reveal at gamescom 2016 today, you’re in luck.

Watch on YouTube

Our friends over at VG247 Turkey have pulled the footage and it’s posted above.

If you hear a familiar voice, you ears aren’t playing tricks. It’s Battlefield expert Westie who is working with Battlefield 1 publisher EA at gamescom 2016 this week.

He is one of many Twitch and YouTube personalities who will be bringing folks all sorts of information on Battlefield and other EA games for the duration.

As promised, the multiplayer portion you see above features 64 players battling it out in two teams of 32 on the Sinai Desert map.

You get a look at horseback and how the animal will handle while under saddle. The horses have a higher health gauge than the player, which is good. But, if you are shot off the horse or killed, another player can snag it for their own.

Some of the game’s weapons are also on display in the video, along with some hectic action in the Conquest game mode. Around the 4:25 minute mark, you will also find out how the points system has changed with this entry in the series.

DICE announced yesterday the Battlefield 1 beta starts on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One on Wednesday, August 31 with Battlefield Insiders granted early access.

The beta includes the Conquest and Rush modes on the Sinai Desert map – which you see above. This map includes the armored train.

Battlefield 1 releases on PC, PS4 and Xbox One on October 21.
