I think what fans are really rebelling against is the setting of the game. Gamers are growing tired of future settings, many even want to see a return to the past. COD is leaving the ground and its roots, which is completely new for the franchise. In the end the actual game may actually gain a following, but it is off to a very rocky start. The only thing that may save it, is its connection to remastered COD 4, which both delighting and annoying fans.
The Battlefield 1 trailer also suffers from the same vagueness, but it is incredibly action packed, features a well done mix of the White Stripes' Seven Nation Army, shows the absolute brutality of WW I, and amazing action sequences. It is also short, leaves your mouth wide open and stimulates the imagination.
Since WW I has become a rather obscure piece of history in the United States it was a difficult feat to get this much interest. So far the developers could not have done better. Dice and EA still have their work cut out for them to produce a great game that is well balanced and fun to play.
Battlefield 1 will have an open beta before release, and it will be interesting to see what the reaction is to the real game and if it will translate into amazing sales. The Battlefield series of games has done well, but COD has had more appeal to the masses, could there be a new king of the fps?
