Battlefield 1, like all Battlefield games since the original Bad Company, will come with Rush mode out of the box. What’s more, we’re going to get our chance at testing it out ourselves when the open beta goes live later this week.

That’s because Sinai Desert, the map available in the beta, will include Rush as well as Conquest. Rush is limited to 24 players (12v12) in the beta, but DICE will likely allow for higher player counts post-launch.

The video above from LevelCap shows two rounds of Rush, one from the attackers’ point of view, and another from the defenders’. There’s no commentary, just raw gameplay.

Both teams get tanks on this map, and it looks like the map is a bit empty, despite the playing area being considerably smaller than the Conquest version. You get two sets of objectives in each of the five sectors, in typical Rush fashion. Outside of the mode itself, we can see some of the new weapons like the M1916 and more.

The Battlefield 1 beta kicks off Wednesday, August 31.
