    I wonder how the RL ANZAC cove will translate to BF, the terrain there is almost up and down.
    A brit operation in the Dardanelles could be interesting, Helles point the brits beached a collier (ship) as cover for their landing, 7 VC's were awarded in that operation (The English paper publicised it as 7 VC's before breakfast)

    I've been to Gallipoli, waiting to compare my photos to the game.

    I'm keen to see if they've made graphical improvements beyond Battlefront. Say what you want about the gameplay, but some of those environments were stunning.

    I hope that's the ONLY similarity the BF1 shares with Battlefront :)

    What little you can see actually looks quite good. I just loathe the mechanic that carrying a melee weapon while being filled with lead is somehow the more effective method of killing.

    Yeah the timing on the trailer looked a bit off, club dude should be dead!

    EDIT: I forgot -- they have that bayonet charge thing. You can briefly run faster with it equipped I believe. Not sure if it is the same for other melee weapons.

    There's actually a millisecond of real gameplay footage in that, when the guy reloads the gun. The environment looks pretty full on -- very bleak.

    Battlefield One Weapons

    There is also some information on the game mechanics, weapons and so on. Jack Frags summary.

    That LMG looked like it had a slow RPM. I wonder if we'll see 600 RPM LMGs, in an effort to balance against bolt actions and melee-heavy combat.

    EDIT: there are semi-autos in the game, so that is what the medics will probably have. So they will fire fairly quickly but have a small 5-6 bullet clip perhaps. So we might see 33 or 34 max damage on them. Faster bullet velocity also makes it easier to kill at range.

    Less bullets, higher accuracy.

    Hopefully.
    Hopefully no pull bolt, rapid loading, no recoil, gravity defying, no sway BS either

    Unfortunately that appears to be the case. I was hoping they would have classic medium range bolt actions as "any class" weapon. The base weapon that everything else is balanced around.

    But going off the reveal today, the only bolt action will be with snipers. That is a bad sign, but we'll know more on the 12th.
