    Default Battlefield 1

    Now it's just a poster but it does look legit, I don't know whether to be excited for change or confused or just

    The only WW1 game that I know of is Verdun which I'm playing atm and it's not half bad, but if DICE is pumping out a WW1 themed game, hopefully it stays somewhat in the realm of that war, but idk with this guy holding a Luger plus a cape and a mace of some sort.

    BF is no stranger to alternate/sci-fi history however (BF2142), I guess we wait on the reveal trailer later.

    edit: Will air @ 2pm on twitch https://www.twitch.tv/battlefield

    edit 2 for official trailer:

    The PlayStation Store leaked the new Call of Duty, so itís only fair that Xbox gets to leak the new Battlefield. This morning, thatís what happened, with the above image popping up on Xbox Live as part of an advertisement for the new reveal stream.

    Meanwhile, Redditís got a retail leak confirming that the gameís called Battlefield 1.

    The shot appears to confirm previous rumors that the next Battlefield will be set in an alternate version of World War I, although we donít know how many liberties developer DICE plans to take with history. (Could be as simple as ďweird weapons.Ē)

    The character on the gameís cover appears to be a Harlem Hellfighter. Thereís a big zeppelin and a WW1-era trench club there, among other details. I think itís safe to assume that there wonít be any magic, despite the main character looking straight out of Doctor Strange.

    UPDATE [1:34pm] - Seems like itíll be out on October 18, 2016.

    Weíll have more later this afternoon once EA does their official reveal, so stay tuned.

    Could be sweet if done right. SO happy it won't be in a futuristic sci-fi ish setting. Even Battlefield 4's tech was starting to annoy me, what with all the unmaned indirect fire weapons

    WW1 was my third choice though. Ideally for me it would have been like a late '70s early 80's cold war type setting. Modern-ish but no crazy technology. After that would have preferred WW2. WW1 will still be neat though.

    But I can see it playing a bit like hardline where vehicles are used basically for transportation and really focusing on infantry combat, with just a few vehicles that can take on enemies. Not sure how I feel about that

    WW2 revival was also my first choice. But a cold war alternate history would've been a close second too, probably why I like the RTS Wargame so much, finally putting to use all those weapons each side made during the arms race from the 50-late 80s.

    I have a feeling they are doing alternate reality because of so many little issues that straight WW1 would pose as a game theme. I know in Verdun, while it has smaller maps, it's still like you learnt in social class, running into no man's land, heavy arty, chlorine and mustard gas - then fighting in that gas with a mask on, trench fighting. With alternate reality, you can bend the rules like the fighting style, where it mimics WW2-modern day combat strategy, transport isn't just 50hp trucks from the 19teens, the British Mark I never was the king of tanks, maybe instead both sides were far more advanced by then.

    In the end what I am looking forward to is going back to bolt-action rifles, how I've missed that so much haha

    Definitely enough for me to be interested in, arty, tanks, gas, Red Baron dog fights, brutal melee, armoured train, a horse. Just hope it's not too far fetched from WW1 itself.

    Looks more interesting than I expected, that's for sure. I wonder if that glimpse of naval combat means a return of player controlled ships.

    Also didn't see anything weird like I was originally scared of with that image that got leaked. No soldiers wearing capes and didn't seem like there was anything too alternate-timelines ish, which I don't want

    That looks so sick! Hopefully it actually works on launch and not 2 years later.

    EA Access continues to be the best deal in gaming! FYI you can get BF4 and BFH premium for free right now.

    + PC naturally, I think the industry on a whole is done with doing PS3/360 releases.

    The mace shown is the trench raiding club

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Trench_raiding_club

    There was A LOT of melee weapons used in WW1 due to lack of munitions and trench/close combat warfare

    I quit BF4 cause of all the problems at launch.

    What pissed me off the most was, they want you to pay for expansion packs, some servers wouldn't even let you play unless you had the expansions, meanwhile the game was a bugged piece of shit. it infuriated me to the point of uninstall.

    I missed out on most of the bf4 bugs since I didn't even get it until a year and a half after it came out.

    Bf3 was still better though. Didn't we have a Beyond server for a while?

    I remember that now. Didn't it all just disappear?
