Battlefield 1

With video game logic, Battlefield 1 came out after Battlefield 4, the reason for the title is because it’s set in that most unlikely setting for a video game shooter; World War I. NEON applauds the fresh take on a war that is commonly explained as men sitting in trenches for 4 years. It is, as always, more complicated than the summary and this video game shows us this. From highlighting the brave exploits of now dead nations such as Austro-Hungary and the Ottoman Empire, to the diverse locations the war was fought. This game sneaks real history into the brains of teenagers of today.
