Yesterday we finally saw the reveal of Battlefield 1, and most reactions I’ve seen have been quite positive. Among those, are praising words from the other side of this fall’s FPS warfare: developers from Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare‘s studio Infinity Ward.
The studio’s official Facebook account opened the dances with a rather classy reply to a less than classy taunt:
More voices from the studio joined, starting with Principal Rendering Engineer Michael Drobot, who praised the facial animation and rendering. Incidentally, Drobot is one of the main actors behind Killzone: Shadow Fall‘s visuals.

Game Designer Douglas Holder (previously at Naughty Dog, and maker of clever thumb wrestling games) joined in as well:

Last, but not least, Director of Communications Eric Monacelli (also a Naughty Dog veteran), praised the choice of song, the looks and the interesting mechanics showcased in the reveal.

Personally, I can’t wait to see more from both teams. As I mentioned yesterday, this is the first year in history in which I’m actually excited for both Call of Duty and Battlefield. Considering how bad I am at shooters, that’s an achievement in itself.
