Rumour: Battlefield 5 to be set in WW1?

43 posts in this topic

World War 1 seems like a strange setting. Climbing over the top and walking in to a wall of bullets or being shelled by your own miscalculated wall of artillery doesn't sound like it would lend itself to a game very well. World War 2 would be a much better setting in my opinion.

Out of curiosity, what makes someone who wants futuristic shooters a "brat?"

I'm talking about the kids that clearly every first person shooter developer caters too. Not saying everyone is a brat but it's been pretty clear who all of these people have been listening to for the past couple of years now. Kids that want fast paced shit.

I noticed this too. Battlefield is trying to be more like COD which is bullshit. You notice this in Hardline where everything is fast paced and no fucking tanks. Besides if DICE actually listened to us we would have Bad Company 3 already.

 

I've had a bit of a think about the WW1 setting. Although this would be interesting to explore i dont think  it would be executed very well. Why do you think there arnt any major WW1 games?

I'm a big fan of WW shooters, and it's mostly WW2 out there, so I'm crossing my fingers for this :)

Interesting. A setting like WW1 would actually make me slightly curious about the franchise or a FPS in general.

I doubt this being true if only for the reason that it would seem like a ww1 shooter would be paced differently then a more modern/futuristic day shooter is.  So I could see may fans of the faster paced action looking at a ww1 shooter and thinking that they don't want to play something as slow.  I mean considering that the main weapon of ww1 was a bolt-action rifle that could fire what like 10-20 rounds in a minute I can't really seeing that working in the current shooter demographic they did have machine guns but they weren't the main weapon.  Could be wrong but it doesn't seem highly likely or at the very least I doubt they call it BF5.

I like WW1 & WW2 games. At least they aren't doing Battlefield: Tom Hanks VS Somalian Pirates

I really would like to see Bad Company 3 coming out. But i guess i'll wait and see how this will turn out if it really should be a WW1 shooter.

I'd really like Bad Company 3 considering it's 6 Years since Bad Company 2 and we've already had Battlefield 3 and Battlefield 4 since then which were both similar. Unless Battlefield 5 actually is set during World War 1 or even World War 2 then it would be pointless in my opinion for it to be another Modern or Future setting. It's been 8 Years since World At War and Enemy Front wasn't brilliant so I do think it's about time for a AAA World War FPS again. It would be nice for it to be historically accurate too.

Just Bring back the gang DICE. If you remember the end of BC 2 they pretty much guaranteed a sequel. The Russians are invading!!!

We already had BF1942 (WWII). Why go further back?

@mrVaderdan"will be a military-style game" "more destruction"

What "More" could you do in the past? 

BF has only had 1 future title: 2142. And that came out BEFORE 1942...
My money is on 2143, or BadCo. 3.

I ABSOLUTELY, 1000000000000% would and am pumped for this! Have wanted a legitimate WW1 game since I was a kid. Like for over a decade! If this is true I'm all for it. Sick and tired of futuristic shooters. Want COD to go back to WW2, and if Battlefield 5 was WW1 (and had a campaign)......I just can't even. So much excitement on my end.

What is your definition of a kid then? I've been to all the CoD midnight launches from probably MW2 forward and I've only seen a few "kids" there. I know plenty of grown ass men that enjoy the futuristic and fast paced shooters far more than the slower, traditional shooting games.

 

Maybe I'm taking this the wrong way from you but I see many people on the internet use "kid" as an insult, insinuating that only an immature kid would like something, like a futuristic shooter. I really wish gaming fans as a whole would express their dislike with a game, a series or a trend without insulting the people who enjoy those things. Personally I think an argument is far more compelling when someone uses actual facts to back up their opinion rather than attacking a game or its fans. 

 

Anyway, I've been thinking about this game a lot more and I really don't know how they'd pull of trench warfare. I can see it being fun for a level or two in the campaign as well as for a few hours in the multiplayer but for an entire game? I don't know. At the very least it would be very interesting to see what they attempt to do with the gameplay.

Keep dreaming. Unfortunately this will always happen, most game-related arguments are based on insults rather than actual points since so many people seem to think an attack on a game is an attack on them personally.

Hopefully they don't go that way. No one wants to play a shooter during a boring time period and weak guns.

I'm not attacking the game or its fans. Here's a video ofor a guy testing what the average age of the cod player is. It's not the facts necessarily, but it should provide some insight for what I'm talking about. https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&source=web&rct=j&url=https://www.youtube.com/watch%3Fv%3D3Leo4QHY7bo&ved=0ahUKEwjfwoy_gJnLAhVK82MKHS2FDaIQtwIIIzAC&usg=AFQjCNFSzAOdHGntQKBSGIEN4doonOm_HQ Edited by Kubanga
