BF1 Official "gameplay" trailer



It looks amazing but EA Dice is great with trailers in general, I want to see actual gameplay before I can voice my opinion.

Don't worry we can watch Snoop Dog and Terry Crews play for us so we can decide if it's good or not. /s

...........Oh good, they replaced the merciless butchering version of Seven Nation Army with something slightly less shitter but still pretty fucking terrible :(
I'll be frank here: Why in the GREAT EUROPEAN WAR OF NINETEEN FOURTEEN didn't they make a period-instrument version of the Battlefield theme for this?!?!?! Why the fuck not?! That'd be sick!!!!! Big band-style, bugles, snare drums, marching-anthem-style backing vocals! Literally go all out with it!!!

...OR at least this!


Or this?


But no. Instead we get some guy occasionally saying what I believe to be "We can't change the brooown" in a generic male RnB voice to uninspired drums and infrequent wub-wubs...



I'm not prepared to say anything further on the topic. Everything else I've got about this game (and Battlefield in general) is raw, pure, unrefined hatred :P

You ignored the hour long livestream of actual gameplay that they mentioned they would be doing at least 6 times during the conference? That's your own fault. The trailer is 2 minutes long, of course there isn't a lot of gameplay.

I watched the stream, I know about the livestream. I found it funny that the thing named "gameplay trailer" had no gameplay. If they had called it "trailer for the gameplay livestream" then that'd be one thing.

"gameplay trailer" had no gameplay

It did gave gameplay though. When you cut out the intro, sponsors, and splash screen at the end of the video, a large majority of the content of that video is actual gameplay, that looked very similar to what was in the livestream, though more scripted of course. You're complaining that a two minute long video didn't have much in it, I would agree, it's only two minutes after all. Your expectations don't match the standard that E3 has been at for years now. Gameplay trailers for every major game release are scripted and short, that's not a characteristic of just this one.

It looked to me like 90% of that was cutscenes and the like. Unless DICE is completely changing what gameplay means then that two-minute gameplay trailer had maybe 15-20s of it. All I was doing was pointing out the silliness of it all.

The criticism you're making is valid, but it's not like DICE has been leading the charge on shortening up gameplay trailers. The only thing in that trailer that isn't gameplay was the scene where they were inside the tank, and some of the shots of characters faces. Everything else though would be gameplay. Find me a Triple A title trailer in the last two years from E3 that hasn't followed this kind of format, and is labeled as gameplay.
