Is it a surprise that Battlefield 1 is pummeling Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare in the battle for trailer love? Not only pummeling, they’ve achieved total supremacy.
Battlefield 1 did what I said CoD should have done: go back to the past.
CoD blasts way into the derivative future where mechs and space-fighters warp straight out of Halo, Star Wars, Titanfall, Battletech, et al.

Battelfield 1 travels back to early 20th century, to the war that gets eclipsed by the more terrifying war that came 30 years after. Not only historically and in the movies and in the classrooms, but also in video games. But The Great War was a bloody mess in itself, the bloodiest in history. It was also the first truly mechanical war. Yes, World War 1 was the first great war of the industrial revolution. Perfect for video games.
World War 1 would have seemed like a strange sci-fi madness to those born in the 19th century. Just thirty years prior, guys were still lining up with muskets. And now, there were flying machines and gas masks and tanks. Just as terrifying as mechs and space fighters and laser-blasters, but more real. And more deadly. And more interesting.
I was a Battlefield guy way back when. Then I became a CoD guy. And this year, the match goes back to Battlefield. Loving this war.
Battlefield 1 is out October 21, 2016 on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.
