The first trailer for Battlefield 1's single-player campaign will be released tomorrow, September 27, EA has announced. While you'll have to wait another day to see the full video, EA has released an animated GIF from the trailer that teases out what you can expect.

In the GIF, we see what looks like a wartime photographer snapping a photo as the pilot flies upside down. The soldier on the ground nearly has his head ripped off. Take a look:

EA has not yet said much at all about Battlefield 1's single-player campaign, so fans may be happy that they may get some more answers tomorrow. In May, lead designer Daniel Berlin teased that the campaign may follow multiple different characters. It "will focus on different stories and different personalities across the world," he said.

One of the playable characters will be the Bedouin woman warrior from the game's announcement trailer. She also showed up in a subsequent trailer in a sequence related to Lawrence of Arabia

The African-American Harlem Hellfighter group may also be featured in the campaign. According to Berlin, EA's overall goal is to spotlight lesser-known elements of WWI.

"When we set out on this game, we wanted to depict not just the common view of what the war was like," he explained. "We wanted to challenge some preconceptions. We want to delve into some of the unknowns of WW1. Maybe people don't know that this person fought or that person fought, that this army was involved. We're stretching out and bringing all those stories into the game."

Battlefield 1 comes out on October 21 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. EA/Origin Access members can start playing on October 13, while people who buy the Early Enlister edition can get in on October 18.
