Battlefield 1 has been officially announced, confirming the World War one setting and showcasing In-Engine footage of the game that featured Naval combat, air combat and land battles that included cavalry, tanks and trench warfare.

The setting of World War One is a setting that is rarely explored in games, with the game planning to showcase the battlefields of World War One from the Western Front to the Middle East and to the high seas, where a lot of new tactics and technologies are combined with classic cavalry charges and close quarters combat. 

The game will include several Melee weapons, from shovels to clubs and bayonets, each of which has their own advantages and disadvantages in combat.  

Vehicles have always been a huge part of the battlefield franchise, with Battlefield one bringing battleships, biplanes, tanks, light tanks and airships. The trailer has shown cavalry charges, which hints that mounted/horseback combat will be included in the game.  

 

Weapon customization will still be available in Battlefield 1, though right now we are not sure how much you will be permitted to do so given the time period. Right now a bayonet option has been confirmed for Melee combat. 

Poison gas will play a gameplay role, leaving areas that will be dangerous to enter unless you have a gas mask which allows these areas to be used tactically.

Really not sure what to make of it. Watched the live stream, got very excited, then had major reservations with a few things they said. Will wait for more gameplay footage and the beta before deciding on this one.

On a big plus note, the trailer was very pretty! although the few snippets of gameplay within the trailer looked very similar with no real upgrade form previous games.Quote

Has potential to be a really good game given the extreme lack of WW1 games that are out compared to WW2/Post Modern gamesQuote
