Battlefield 1 Released

EA and DICE now offers Battlefield 1, which takes the long-running military shooter series into the trenches of World War I. You can keep up with the game on the Battlefield 1 website and you can pick this up through Origin. They celebrate the release with a Press 'X' to Squad Up trailer with special guests from the community taking part in online games. Here's word on the game:
In Battlefield 1, experience the dawn of all-out war on an unmatched epic scale, full of a variety of new gameplay opportunities. DICE set out to build the most immersive and dynamic Battlefield game ever, continuing to improve their multiplayer sandbox experience through ever-changing environments with intuitive destruction and dynamic weather in up to 64-player battles. In Operations, a brand new multiplayer mode, players can fully immerse themselves in a series of interconnected battles, holding the front line across multiple maps. And if the battle is looking lost, call in a Behemoth, the largest fully player-controlled vehicle ever seen in Battlefield or deploy as one of three destructive forces of the Elite Class. In the unique single player campaign, players can immerse themselves in War Stories, played from the perspectives of different protagonists across the globe from the deserts of the Middle East to the skies of the Western Front.

TotalBiscuit's comments on the single player have put me off, they seem to have completely missed the style of WW1.

Well, its pretty obvious also if you watch some gameplay videos.
Feels more like a mix of WW1 and WW2, leaning stronger to WW2. Fictitious.

Note: the Western Front from September 1914 to the start of 1918 was not what the rest of the war looked like. The Battle of the Somme is perhaps the strongest image of WWI which survived to present, but focusing only on the Somme neglects the rest of the war, and creates a skewed image. The Eastern Front, the Italian and Roumanian Fronts, and the Western Front in 1918 can be characterized by mobility, encirclement, infiltration, breakthroughs, and great tactical innovation. Yes, trenches were involved everywhere -- just like trenches are still dug today for prepared defensive positions -- but the classic image of massed infantry charges across no-man's land under withering machine gun, mortar and artillery fire is something that only applies to parts of the war.

Sorry, this is a pet-peeve of mine. If you're interested in a more general vision of the combat experience of WWI, and the tactical lessons the US Army was drawing from them in the 1930s, check out the superb Infantry in Battle.

Thats not what I mean. I know very well that it wasnt just trench warfare. But getting thrown into the game with everything developed already, not getting shown how much that war changed war, that is just stupid. For example in 1914 planes were barely able to climb without stalling, dogfights were extremely difficult and not many tactics were developed yet. But in this game you get the best planes instantly, tanks are common (which they werent even at the very end, especially on the German side), no special tactics or spectacular operations are shown or used (and there were so many, which, as I said, created completely new warfare). You dont see it. If you dont have a clue about the weapons, it feels like a WW2 game.

Multiplayer also doesnt feel like WW1. The levels arent created well enough to give you that feeling. Again, it feels like WW2.

I mean, I dont know if you do, but I know games like Wings, Red Baron and other WW1 games. They mostly got the feeling of that war very well, but this game feels so generic, without soul. Almost like a SW Battlefront mod.
I have given up on waiting for BIS to come back to their senses and do a real ArmA 2 successor.
