Great analysis of the trailer by some dude.

Nice analysis, especially with historical references. There was a launch event with more info, here's someone talking a bit about that:

Most notably, the classes now are Assault, Medic, Support, and Scout. No engineer, and Assault and Medic have been separated. Players who spawn in vehicles don't get class equipment, but basic pilot gear. No more using and throwing away a plane to get on top a sniper spot, it seems. :v

Yeah, I thought the title was a bit weird, but the video just goes to show how much real effort Dice puts into the accuracy of their work and its fantastic!

If you look for it, i'm sure you can find tons of crazy stuff about any war, but it doesn't mean that it was widespread in reality. Maybe i'm wrong, but when i think about WW1, I mostly think about trenches and very few army vehicles (planes and tanks came late, maybe 1917 or something like that).

That's why i thought making a WW1 game would be difficult, because it's not fun at all from what i know about it. But it seems they've found lots of variety in environments, weapons and vehicles. It will be hard to balance this but it could be cool.

Yeah, of course not, its a game, therefore fun game-play over 100% realism.  This is why the Battlefield series (MP) has always been my go to fps.  They put you in the most realistic settings with tons of attention to detail, but they make it fun to play at the same time.

They are most likely going to stylize WW1 in their own "Battlefield" way. If something existed at that time, and the gameplay it offers is fairly balanced and fun, then you can bet it will be available to the player.  After all, battlefield is still very much a "blockbuster" game. If you remember, BF 1942 was by no means realistic/historically accurate. There were literally jetpacks in that game (secret weapons expansion). Expecting this game to be factual/historically accurate is setting yourself up for disappointment.

Bending reality to create wild, awesome gameplay is what BF games do. Fictionalization is fine, but it's important to realize that history brings with a certain amount of drama that you don't get with fiction. Hopefully this isn't completely disregarded, and I'm sure DICE are completely aware of this. (especially if they want to create a compelling campaign mode.)

Haha owned

Really confused as to where you'd get the idea that there were only bolt action rifles and revolvers in WW1. The M1911 is in basically every videogame ever made.

 

edit: The Wikipedia page for WW1 has a photograph of a british machine gun team at the very top of the page, lmao did this guy read literally anything before making this video

yeah I agree! They'll make it fun to play. Right now verdun is the only game based on World war 1. 

Lets see how this game impact on other upcoming WW2 games like battalion 1944, Days of war and new Rising storm 2(based on vietnam war).
