If you're a skeptical old Battlefield grognard like me, you had your hopes low for the Battlefield 1 reveal trailer (yeah, the name is official now). Turns out it's undeniably awesome, thanks to stupidly impressive in-engine visuals, sword-equipped cavalary (??!), Zeppelins and Zeppelin gunner gameplay, sweet melee weapons (a mace and what looks like a shovel), oldschool dogfights, and destruction. Oh, and a Seven Nation Army electronic remix that somehow works really, really well.
See for yourself:
If that doesn't get you going, well, you just hate video games.
Battlefield 1 launches October 21 on PC, Xbox One, and PS4.
