Rumours are buzzing that DICE will take Battlefield 5 to World War One later this year. Is it a good idea?
Hell No. Anything pre 2015 needs to forever banned from BF, so sick of those old war shooters from ps2 and ps3. It's fine adding DLC like they did with Vietnam and Bad Company 2, but if they want a full WW game keep it CoD, would be a perfect match to have lag compensation, autoaim/aim assist, P2P connections. You have a neaderthal era to go with neanderthal CoD mechanics. Battlefield going to WW is like Gran Turismo going to Model T Racing
Sorry to say I think you are in the minority on this, most of us are begging for a WW2 comeback as for granturismo it has old and new cars so that is not a good choice to prove a point.
and your counter means what again? Gran Turismo has old cars, but it's not the focus of the game. That is why I said as a DLC pack WW would be perfectly fine.
All the future bullshit is already sorely played out.
no one said anything about future, I'm simply talking about old WW era's I'm perfectly fine with MODERN shooters...
WW1 yes please! So sick of this future shice. It sure as hell won't be called BF5 though!
Only fools want a WW1 battlefield game. It's evident there are a lot of fools in this world. If it is indeed in that time era, I will not buy it. Who wants to play a game with single shot weapons? We might as well double dribble instead of NBA2K
Semi auto is way more accurate and practical in most games and real life.
Sadist you need to do a brief bit of research on WW1. A lot of you do. You act like it's musket warfare. Wtf do you kids learn in history class anymore?
"Double dribble instead of nba 2k" lmao!
Lol @obj you caught that too
In the zone, the focus in GT is on cars in general there are many tournaments and show case events the focus only on old cars. I don't think we should single out or stop making any era, why not do each era every few years and keep everyone happy. Just because I am sick of modern and future doesn't mean I think they should stop making them. I just won't buy or play them it's that simple but if I want the choice why not give me a WW1 or WW2 option. just because you personally don't care for it doesn't mean I should suffer.
I've been playing Battlefield games since 1942. I'm personally open to anything from WW2 to future as BF 2142 was a blast back on the PC. I'm torn on how creative they can be using the WW1 era. Don't think there could be a lot to it. They've been continuing to support BF4 for years now. Don't think the same thing could happen with a WW1 game. As someone said, probably best if it were a DLC pack for something like that. Battlefield games have always been a day one purchase for me and it is by far my favorite franchise, with the exception of Hardline. That was trash. If WW1 is confirmed I would probably wait to see reviews before I jumped in.
I would loved to see a WW2 shooter again. It's been so long. But a WW1 shooter will be great too after the tons of futuristic shooters we get today.
I think battlefield is reaching the point where it's had its day. I put a whole bunch of hours into 3 & 4, but i just don't know what they can do with the i.p.
WW1 battlefield would be very welcome. If not a BF 1918, a Battlefield thats spans late 1970's early 1980's weapons and tech would be also kind of cool.
I'm not asking for a world war 1 shooter but I won't mind one either. My main concern with games like these is the developers creativity being hindered or held back trying to stay true to a particular theme or setting. But it's wait and see what does has up it's sleeve at this point. Way to early to judge.
