I mean Triplanes vs Zeppelins vs Horses vs Tanks and swords and armor and antitank rifles and the world and his wife, it's so crazy I kind of like it. Could be alot of fun, I guess it all depends on how unrealistic they're prepared to go. I don't wan't a million gadgets and attachments for the weapons given WW1 was mostly fought with bolt action rifles and ironsight.

Yea, definitely a lot going on, but it looks fun and the graphics look amazing, sort of like Star Wars Battlefront, one of those clips looked exactly like that game which is a good thing in terms of graphics.  This will likely be a pre-order for me.

Honestly I won't pre-order until I see some proper gameplay. I'm intrigued by the idea though and it looks to be fun. I don't know if you played Verdun but it's a WW1 game and it's pretty hardcore and brutal. I love it because it's trying to be as authentic as possible so you basically only have bolt action weapons with ironsight and it's one shot kill. So when you're facing an enemy it's basically, if you miss the first shot you're most likely dead but that's what makes it so intense and immersive. Hopefully BF1 will capture some of that.

Personally, I don't like too realistic.  I'm more of a fan of BF3/4 style of play, I'd imagine it's very similar or maybe the same.  I even enjoyed Star Wars BF (although it was very limited) but in terms of gameplay, I liked it.  Unless there is some news of changes, I don't see a drastic change here.  They could add a "hardcore" type mode, which is cool.  But who knows, with horses and shovels, maybe this game will be much more different than the others.  I'm not pre-ordering anytime soon either, but I likely will to be able to play earlier and get the season pass too.  Based on my history of BF3/4 I will put over 100 hours into it and play all of the DLC maps.  Then again, this is EA and they could totally fuck this up and fuck me over, but for a game I love like BF I'd likely take that risk.

I'm so over the FPS genre. I'm trying to think how they could draw me back in, and I don't think they can. The only game I'm really looking forward to these days is Red Dead Remption's next installment.

I take back what I said. BF1 has gained my attention!

Have to say it looks pretty amazing even though the stream quality is bad. Total chaos but it looks fun.

Got myself a few rounds with some friends today and it was fun but I enjoyed the map they had during the alpha more, can't remember what it was called.

Ok so the last Battlefield game I played was 1942 but I'm loving battlefield 1. I've already put 4 hours into one map so I'm sure I'll pre purchasing this game.

Battlefield 1 Single Player Gameplay - Storm of Steel

Looks cool, I like the concept of playing another soldier when you die instead of respawning.
Makes you feel the helplessness those soldiers felt of a neverending war.

So last night I joined Origin Access.  For 5 bucks it allowed me to play the trial version of BF1 already.  It includes the first two single player missions and 10 hours of multiplayer all of which carries over to the game if you buy.  You also get 10% off the origin store... so for 5 bucks I saved 15 on the ultimate edition of the game.  So it actually saved me money and I am able to play the game.  Due to the download, I only got to play the opening scene of the game and...  :omg: it's awesome.  :metal

Oh man, that first mission is AWESOME.

I think this single player has potential to be some of the most fun FPS moments ever.

It's all based on real stories.

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2445626/Incredible-bravery-WWI-tank-crew-survived-72-hours-bombarded-Germans-side.html

This is what the first set of missions is based on.  So much fun to play and then read about it after.  Tomorrow is when the full game unlocks to early enlisters so I can proceed further on the single player.

And here is my first call cam video from the multiplayer (which I should have about 1 more hour to play tonight) https://youtu.be/ykIMM6BqEkw

I haven't been much into 1PSs for ages. Seems all the focus is on multiplayer with the SP being an afterthought. The Wired review of BF1 really makes me want to play it, though.

Battlefield 1 is a great game but the war stories campaign is way too short.  I was expecting a lot more.  Still very cool and worth getting.

While I'm loving this game and the war stories are awesome...

Battlefield 1 is a great game but the war stories campaign is way too short.  I was expecting a lot more.  Still very cool and worth getting.

Is a good enough reason to hold off until it's a bit cheaper if you are looking at this game for the single player.  Multiplayer is still where you get the moneys worth.

Haven't finished the campaign yet but I enjoy it so far especially the idea of telling small stories from the war instead of one single story arc. I think that works great and it opens up for all kinds of future DLCs with new war stories for SP along with MP maps following the same theme. As for the sp gameplay it's not very challenging so far but I know that's hard to balance. I also enjoy the MP but there's definitely room for improvements. The annoying vehicle bug that the origin overlay causes which makes you unable to aim when you enter a vehicle for example.  >:( Or not being able to join friends matches even though your in the same group. Small things that i'm sure will be fixed, still annoying though.
The new Operations mode is nice.

Returned to BF4 a couple of days ago and it's been fun, not many active servers though. There's a few of the new maps I never played so those were fun too discover.

So Battlefield 5 will be revealed on May 23rd.

https://www.ea.com/neverbethesame

My hype is pretty mellow at this point, I still love BF as a series but BF1 felt too casual, arcady and a step back from previous games.

The only thing that I feel is a bit interesting is that apparently from some sources that have inside information, the game is going to change alot from previous games which of course could be either bad or good.

So yea we'll see, every new BF reveal is always exciting either way!  :corn

Im excited.  It should have a Battle Royale mode (might not at release though) which I've been wanting to try on the frostbite engine.  Even without it, I love the BF games.  I'd say I kind of agree that BF1 wasn't as good as BF4 or BF3.

That would be interesting even though i'm a bit tired of the whole BR explosion.

Well they aren't basing the game around this mode so that's good, just a new addition to go along with the current craze, but this is the one game I really wanted to try this mode.  I feel it has the potential to make it the best game to play this type of mode.

Even though i'm not that hyped for the actual game i'm still gonna watch the live stream. The best part about the reveal live stream for BF1 was seeing Snoop Dog smokin a joint while trying to figure out the game.

Starting in 20mins.
