Battlefield...1

Leaked promo photos




Rumors = WW1 game, possibly via time-travel.

We'll know officially later today

UPDATE: WW1 confirmed. Time travel likely false rumor. Here's the official trailer

Cool. It would be a nice change of pace. Air combat going back to propeller planes would be great too.

Yeah, def. gambling on trying something different. THIS reddit post by a guy with 'an inside source', turned out to be right about the WW1 setting. There's a yt link within his reddit post with a LOT of details. Includes an Air Superiority game mode with prop planes.

But, we'll know if that guy's source is totally correct after the official reveal at https://www.twitch.tv/battlefield in a few hours.

I was hoping it would have been 2143. While I would like for COD to go back to any era from WW1 to Cold War I don't think I could handle it in BF anymore. On the plus side it could mean a less bloated game with less gadgets that throw the balance off. On the other hand they would have to be pretty small maps to make the slow vehicle gameplay not boring.

BF would benefit a lot from faster transportation and means of getting back into battle which a 2143 setting would provide. Pod dropping from titans to fight over silos and then raiding the enemy titan is still one of the most fun things I've done in gaming.

I'm still hoping that there's more to be revealed. Something like BF1 is a smaller digital one off like 1943 was and there's another game coming.

Thanks GreyMouser, I'll watch twitter for it.

I missed 2142 but from what I hear people either loved it or hated it. Did you play the Nam expansion pack for BC2? It was as good if not better than BC2, I had a blast with it. Current warfare doesn't interest me anymore and future warfare never did. If done right this could bring me back to BF.

This can't be real... I might have to actually skip a Battlefield (Hardline doesn't count)...

WW1 confirmed!

EDIT: trailer has end-tag "play 1st on xbox one w/ EA access"

Also, as the reddit-leaker said, it does appear to be DICE-Sweden.

A WW1 setting is either going to make or break this franchise.

For me, I would love to play in this era. Expect a lot of streams.

good change as it was more than necessary, modern setting slowly feels overused
the trailer looks interesting, though actual gameplay would be needed to better judge on it


another 2142 and i wouldve skipped, but this really is refreshing

Thanks GreyMouser, I'll watch twitter for it.

I missed 2142 but from what I hear people either loved it or hated it. Did you play the Nam expansion pack for BC2? It was as good if not better than BC2, I had a blast with it. Current warfare doesn't interest me anymore and future warfare never did. If done right this could bring me back to BF.

It's understandable that not everybody warmed up to it. 2142 had some of the worst technical issues outside of BF4. Shooting at titan windshield made the game unplayably laggy and I don't remember that ever getting fixed. Helicopters were noobified to the point of not being fun and mostly useless. Some of the physics felt a bit off. The tech wasn't there to handle the art direction so it actually looked worse than BF2. There was more of a focus on infantry and bottlenecks but there was too many ways to get cheap kills like turrets, claymores, and frag spam. However, all of that stuff could have been fixed up and Frostbyte 3 would have made the game amazing. Unfortunately, Dice missed the boat thanks to COD and Titanfall doing future warfare and not doing it particularly well.

I'll give BF1 a chance if there's a beta. If it turns out well I'll probably get it. My initial reaction to the WW1 setting is disappointment. Especially with all the teasing of 2143 they ended up doing WW1. I liked their futuristic vision and art design. And the titan gameplay was something different. Right now, though, I'm not excited for either COD or BF.
