Battlefield 1

DICE’s Battlefield 1 looks awesome- the game seems to be eschewing the modern military setting typical of most shooters on the market these days, including the past few Battlefield games, and instead seems to be returning to a historical setting. But it is also going back further than any major shooter has in history- DICE and EA will be taking us all the way to World War 1 with Battlefield 1.

World War 1 had a unique flavor to the combat- it was the first industrialized and mechanized war, with a lot of fighting being done in the trenches, yes, but also a marked and pronounced use of tanks and planes. How will DICE recreate that in the game?

“Scaling from the scout planes to the bombers to the big airships, and to do all this- of course, all these lived their own lives in the sky,” Patrick Bach, General Manager of DICE, said in an interview with Engadget. You can just spend your day in the sky, fighting it out. And then of course, like any Battlefield game, it’s the ground to air combat is important, and the goal is to do a representation of what it would feel like to actually fly one of these planes. And again- these planes were actually pretty good. They weren’t bad. People might think that they didn’t know how to make planes back then, but they did.

“I would say the tanks, even though they are quite different, they do have a lot of stopping power, and you would probably behave the same way when you saw a tank as you would when you saw an 880.”

So it sounds like combat will be thrilling and dynamic, just familiar enough that players don’t have to spend too much time trying to figure out where to go and what to do, but different enough to give players the thrill of something new, too.

Battlefield 1 is due out in October, on Xbox One, PS4, and PC.

    OK… lets talk about vehicles in BF1. But first, lets revisit the vehicles in BF3 and then BF4… shall we?

    Tanks and aircraft were outstanding in BF3. See a tank… get in and go… anytime, anywhere.

    Aircraft in BF3 was stunningly well done, felt like real life and a wonderful experience. In BF3… as a pilot, you spawned at an airport, you selected your plane or helicopter to pilot. You ran across the field, selected your aircraft… got in… started it up and lifted off. You saw the ground beneath you get smaller and smaller. In jets, you took off the same as helicopters from your runway and you could fly into a cloud bank for that sense of altitude and speed. You knew where you were starting from and where to go for the action. BF3 Aircraft was more of a simulation and less of an arcade experience for the pilots. Some of us were dedicated BF3 pilots only for our Squad. I felt like a real pilot… and not just “Along for the ride” as in BF4.

    Then came along BF4. You were thrown into a jet, in the air, confused of your location or direction… and played. Not much fun in that. No take off or landings. All arcade. Really sucked. Helicopters were somewhat better… more like in BF3.

    BF4 got infinitely better for aircraft when those 4 old BF3 maps were reintroduced back into BF4. Aircraft felt correct again. But only in the old BF3 ‘Second Assault maps’ for BF4. The best of BF3 inside BF4. This should have been DICE’s plan with BF4 from it’s beginning. Not re-inventing a whole new game and leaving BF3 and it’s game play in the dust. BF3 today… is still a superior game over BF4! So for the pilots of BF3… DICE screwed us pretty good, even after DICE took months to finally get BF4 to work!! But I dropped BF4 like a hot rock and left BF4 behind and waited for BF5, in hopes BF5 would go back to the roots of BF3.

    Now comes Battlefield 1. BF1 looks to be a ‘re-fried lump of eggs’ from the BF4 days as far as BF1’s aircraft. Arcade… “spawn in and fly”! Yeah… that’s a real life experience! With a little more work on DICE’s part… you could have had your bi-wing airplane, on a dirt runway… taking off into the sun… and fly to your way-point. Oh well… I guess BF1 needs that ‘arcade’ experience to make it easier for the kiddies.

    I have lots of other rants over this BF1… but that’s for another time and thread. But from what I’ve seen so far of BF1… I won’t waste my money on it.
