Battlefield 1 may be familiar, but it puts the "great" in "Great War"

That explosive tanker in the distance is always blowing up as field decoration, as opposed to being caused by multiplayer battlers.

The Battlefield video game series has turned the clock backward and forward on its military-combat scenarios for nearly 15 years.

Tanks, boats, airplanes, grenades, sniper rifles, shotguns, automatic pistols, mounted chain guns, and on and on and on—in many respects, you've played this Battlefield before.

Battlefield 1's stories avoid talking about either the full scale of the global conflict or about their own nations' involvement, meaning that the results feel surprisingly tone-deaf at certain moments.

The story continues up in the sky and down in the mud, alternating regularly between full-on airborne bombast and in-the-trenches stealth sneakery.

They're guided to shielded, missile-shooting turrets, which can be used to shoot at the train, but that train apparently has laser-precise mortar accuracy and will instantly kill you at any turret that's been manned for more than a single missile shot.
