    I know that Pre-Order & EA/DICE doesnt always end well, but..... damn, on the look alone it's gonna be gorgeous.

    I'm quite hopeful about this one, I've always been a fan of more historical settings and all of the current modern warfare games have gotten rather stale. Hopefully it'll break up the constant comparison between Call of Duty and Battlefield too with the former going for a more futuristic game this time.

    Of all the things I want in this game, a great single-player or co-operative campaign is at the top of my list... wouldn't mind a few levels flying one of those planes, or even sitting in a gunner seat for a two-seater.

    I actually love BF4 and Kudos for at least attempting something different. It would have been easy for EA to just up the graphics, new maps etc and call it BF5 and it would have still sold well.

    (it also makes me think of a new BF2 set in an alternate WW2)

    I hope they get this right. I love that era as it is any way.

    Those are the exact two things that are firmly down at the bottom of my list for ANY Battlefield game.

    Battlefield was, from the start, a multiplayer game - and any time spent tacking on lackluster campaigns to try and emulate CoD was time that I believe should have been spent fixing game-breaking bugs and sorting out balance and latency issues.

    To my mind Dice/EA should do their very best to return to the focus and pace of the game's legacy : BF1942 / BF2.

    With all that said, you will likely get your wish. EA will undoubtedly wish to be all things to all people, and the only ones who will be disappointed will be the fans who have so far bought and played every release in the franchise.

    Alternative (entirely made up fantasy nonsense) history because realistic WWI wouldn't make a very fun gaming experience.

    i'm guessing there will be no helis

    but the game looks like it will have some new ideas and hopefully will be fun

    Also want a good a single player game

    This.

    Really, anyone looking for SP games needs to look elsewhere.

    Sadly there's a severe lack of good single-player shooters that have a nice and simple theme.
    I struggle to name three good games in the past couple of years that don't revolve around nonsense like zombies, the apocalypse or insane futuristic technologies.

    I'm praying for Sniper Ghost Warrior 3 to be decent when it comes out later in the year, though CI Games doesn't have the best track record with the series so far.

    Hoping for a great campaign. And to the 'multiplayer only' crowd, there is a reason not everyone likes multiplayer and it goes something like this:-
    Spawn, dead, spawn, dead, spawn,mdead...ahh ****c this shite.

    I Really enjoy trying to beat the challenge laid down by the developers and I really like completing a game. Multiplayer just goes on and on and on and on.

    Does sitting in an animated trench for hours then getting shot while getting up sound like a fun game experience to you?

    the maps in the game are real places and the game is supposed to be based off of fact. no alternate reality here. Spock's not in this movie.

    you never took history did you? trench warfare was only a part of WW1 (although it dominated the French war) - many many other battles were fluid and dynamic. In fact the war in 1918 easily could have been WW2

    You reference Verdun, which stands for French Trench Warfare
