WWI was fought primarily with bolt action weapons. This looks more like a video game than anything remotely realistic.

I have had the devil of a time programming Steel Panzers WWII to simulate WWI battles because all of the squads I use have to be set for the proper types of weapons, a laborious and lengthy action, and I have to set all of the other parameters manually as well to keep it as realistic as possible.

Unfortunately, I cannot program in Zeppelins or poison gas...darn it.
(But I am working on how to make smoke shells lethal within the game in order to add that element.)

First person shooters are becoming very repetitive.

This game has fictional weapons, uniforms, and vehicles. A lot of semi-automatic and automatic weapons.

It can be considered 'loosely inspired by WW1 lol'.

Tried the beta, but not putting any money down for sure. Though these days I hardly ever do anyways, until the games are heavily patched. Beta had serious issues with performance, but it was quite fun to play.

Well, there is really only one goal, right? Kill a lot of other guys.

That's something really interesting given that most Battlefield games have been set during WWII.
