Battlefield 1 developer EA Dice has released new information on horse gameplay. Battlefield 1 is the first Battlefield title that features rideable horses.
According to the developer the horses will be effective in close-quarters combat. Their speed and agility means they can trample enemies under their powerful hooves, and they’ll get players close enough to slash them down with a saber. If players prefer to stay back a bit, they will have access to powerful rifles for medium range combat that can be fired from horseback.
Horses can even be effective in anti-vehicle assaults by using grenades whilst passing through. Players can run in circles around slower mechanized vehicles and harass them with explosives.
