Post Why WW1 Could be awesome
A picture can tell a 1000 words so...

The vehicle options are interesting:

The weapon options are more varied than you might think:

The battlefield isn't just trenches either!

I really fancy it tbh .... could be a completely different approach .... my fear is they essentially just skin it ..... but fingers crossed they look a bit deeper and go for a game changer.

Interesting....but I just can't see the appeal myself.

Though if they pull it off then BRAVO

The CQC combat from this era that they could work with on a game like this would be immense!

I'm not sure the WW1 setting is going to feel like such a fresh take on the genre. Heading into battle and being cut to pieces by machine gun fire after 10 yards sounds like my experience in pretty much every other FPS game I've played ;)

There must be enough people out there moaning about futuristic shit to warrant them going back in time

There is a reason no one's made a successful ww1 FPS. ..simply lack of what the general target audience want...masses of customisable weapons and vehicles.
I can't see how bf5 can deliver what has stood it out from the rest in a ww1 arena. When did u see a colapsing skyscraper in ww1? Vehicle limit is about as limited as weapons. So to bring a realistic ww1 shooter out seems improbable....ww2 however I can see been a distinctive major seller.

Be interesting to see regardless.

probably the same amount of people who at the time were moaning about all the WW2 shit. Weird how it goes full circle.

Tbh I would love a WW2 BF5 & COD with a similar time line as BO3. I nice mix rather than the same era from both big FPS every year.

Though I'd be more than happy with a true sequel to BF4. It's only slightly in the future thus the modern era weapons etc...and I like that.

Too be honest I just don't want jump packs and laser beams. WW1 or WW2, even Vietnam or something. Just not another futuristic setting would be great.

I have high hopes for this one - have never played a WW1 game before. Please don't screw this up.

That's probably because it's never been done, especially in what's considered to be a "AAA" game.

Was worried about a potential WW1 era BF, but this does look really good & lots of variation on weapons, vehicles & maps.

A lot of potential here.

Having just watched The Revenant, I vote to add scalping to the game. That will add a nice twist.

And if you get the final kill then you can dangle your scalp in front of all the players!
