In other news, recently, DICE’s Robert Sammelin revealed that DICE is taking some historical liberties in Battlefield 1. According to Sammelin, Battlefield 1 is first and foremost a game designed for the enjoyment of players. He also said that DICE has done its best to remain true to the World War 1 without compromising on the fun part.
He further said that World War 1 was pretty dark and brutal, and DICE willingly removed this from the game as these were not fun. In his own words DICE wanted to focus on fun rather than realism.
Battlefield 1 is scheduled to release on October 21 for PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4.
