DICE has just revealed the often teased Battlefield 1 competitive mode, called Incursions.
Incursions is a small-scale competitive mode the developer have been looking to bring to the game for a while. The mode supports 5v5, and features vehicles because DICE felt that they're an integral part of the Battlefield experience.
Players get to choose their class prior to the start of a match, which makes it sound like they won't be able to switch later in the round - a big change from all current modes. DICE has been testing Incursions internally for a while, but it'll be hosting a closed alpha in September.
You can register for the alpha today through the official site.
Incursions is one of many Battlefield 1-related announcements made at the EA live show. Other news include confirmation of the Revolution edition, and new gameplay from one of the maps in the Name of the Tsar DLC.
Incursions does not yet have a release date.
