E3 2016: Battlefield 1 is everything old you loved about the series with new ideas


When DICE first announced it Battlefield 1 was taking the series into a new alternative World War I history, I was delighted in the new direction but at the same time it felt a gimmick on some level. However, after seeing the game in action and its glorious return to environmental destruction, I can see this is the game I’ve been waiting years for since Battlefield: Bad Company 2.

Beyond destruction, there are multiple ways Battlefield 1 remixes some of my favorite elements from prior games and wraps them up with new features like dynamic weather. It’s a game that’s a return to form while introducing new ideas to the Battlefield series.
