Hey lads, wouldnt it be cool if activision made a CoD game based in World War One? For once you can fight as the British or the Canadians :) or even the Germans or French? I can see it happening.

Yep. WWI Deserves more credit...It was more mano a mano back then I figure. Perfect for shooter games...Bring it on baby...I'd buy. Second hand.

You'd get bored with a three o all the time...tanks that get bogged etc etc...always a limited Genre.
How about a IL2 game where ALL aircraft are represented...points are also accrued through various ways...the points can be used to "purchase" items...Machins guns and cannon from the start to the end of the war...aircraft engines that can be upgraded with points...special additions like brake flaps or accelerons can be bought and added...the game computing how much they weigh and drag and gives your aircraft the according performance...You can upgrade everything over time or one thing (like armour or armament) only...The ability to cutomise ones aircraft in terms of paint would also be cool. Was playing this game last night, and for the thousandth time asked myself..."how good is this game??"

Not sure about a WWI shooter game, other than perhaps a Sniper version. What are you gonna do check your trench foot every couple of hours? I thought most raids were done with limited shooting, and firing on a walking line of Infantry will get boring pretty soon.
Wars are rarely fought in black and white, but in infinite shades of grey

WWI had the first really advanced means of killing a lot of other men. ..Maxim's machine gun, poison gas, the tank, heavy effective artillery, the interrupter gear, the sub, battleship...Makes for a great game play story....Would bet it's gonna happen.

Maybe one day you can order massive artillery barrages and see how your attack progresses. These days it seems the war games are more and more modern warfare with bigger guns, rockets,planes etc more effective weapons. So Artillery barrages should not be a problem I guess, it´s what the big audience wants and buys.

If treyarch or infinity ward where to release a ww1 game i might be sceptical on just how they would make it work, all points brought up so far have raised arguable questions as to how they would replicate the ww1 battlefield, my opi ion is for them to make a ww1 game work they would need to take the same approach as they are doing with Black Ops 2 which is incorperating vehicles more heavily into the game play and make them more available to the player, doing this wod add a lot more to the campaign and give them a better opportunity to draw out the campaign, doing so would would add more than enough fun to compensate for repetative trench warfare. If they did this i would seriously consider buying it

I would be a fan of WWI in terms of RTS or world-playing games, but for an FPS I think it would be decent as well. If you've ever played the 1918 Mod for Counterstrike Source it's actually a really fun game... the only problem with the FPS genre... where in the heck are you going to find cover? xD

Any WWI game would likely have to be a strategy one as the concept of using small units or combined arm's only came into play later in a large scale, Would love to play it my self but i don't see it being appreciated on a large enough scale to make it viable for activision/etc to actually put the funds into producing it.

What I'd like to see though is with these WWII games a greater use of other nation's as characters, Other wise soon enough kid's will start to think only Russia, Japan, US, UK and Germany were in the war..

For PC games I have not yet come across a WWII game that has an Aussie as the character. (Game based on Kokoda??)

I would like to see Gallipoli represented, that way you could do both World War 1 and have the Aussies and Kiwis represented fairly as they deserve. But a game on the Kokoda operation in FPS would be awesome too.

How about a IL2 game


I agree with this totally!!

There's a game called Verdun on Steam Greenlight which can only be described at CoD: WWI.

I've played it even though it's still in beta and it's incredibly fun.

 

Here's a link.

Can't imagine a WWI game being all that exciting if it is anything close to reality.  There would be a battle against Trench foot, perpetual body lice slaughter, and the inevitable find cover while the enemy shell us section.  A WWI game is doable, but they would need to focus on very limited portions with a lot of Hollywood thrown in.  Looks like the Verdun game might be a good try though.

 

IL2 is a very well done game, but designing every single WW2 aircraft with their precision would be a staggeringly large task!

I would argue against that ascertion Otto...one would have a parameters area for the aircraft...they all fly the same, just have different parameters...Top speed, turning circle, fire power and accuracy, climbing speed etc etc...they all have these, just different values, most of which have already been applied. My above idea would perhaps be more difficult, indeed would need another engine to bring together differing techs...but the time and PC power is already there to lend itself to the idea...
