Battlefield 1 maps are inspired by real-life battles and locations from World War 1. Maps in Battlefield 1 support most of the multiplayer game modes, such as Conquest, Rush, etc.
Battlefield 1 maps are spread around the world, from the front lines in Europe, to the deserts of Arabia, to the Adriatic sea, and more. As with other games in the series, maps are designed around specific types of combat. There are maps that focus on infantry and close quarter combat, large maps that favor vehicles, and maps that offer a bit of both worlds.
