CoD vs. Battlefield: Reveal Trailer Battle

Both of the giant IP's have dropped the reveal trailers of their upcoming games. But which one is better?

  1. Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare



    Opening with a chaotic montage of "found footage" and news reals, the trailer hints at a broken world, a chaotic world. The trailer then continues to show a few more explosions and gun fights and a few people say things like "We're at war." - "How could we not see this coming." - "He's one of our own." - Very cliché stuff if you ask me.

    But then, then they take to the skies and beyond. Exiting the atmosphere a seeming space battle ensues and best of all, the slow, low key rock that has been the trailers main soundtrack for 1 minute and 40 seconds now starts to change, eventually evolving into a
    SUPER remix of Bowie's space epic: Major Tom. Dog flights in space, huge wrecks of massive space ships, fights on asteroids!

    Eventually they move back to the surface, although "back" isn't the right way to describe it. Since Jupiter is in view, and it is absolutely colossal. I believe this game to take place on one of Jupiter's moons, at least in part.

    Ultimately the graphics don't look up to par, not that much better if at all better than last years model.

    Battlefield 1



    A much shorter trailer, opening with a quick flash of logos and a man being bludgeoned with a club, fading into a horse riding across the empty desert with a dub-step remix of 'Seven Nation Army' by The White Stripes.

    'Seven Nation Army' continuing to be the trailers soundtrack through out. Accompanied by footage of an old-fashioned airplane, cut to a guy being beat down with a trench shovel. Next, a World War 1 era plane crashing into a tower. That's right. Battlefield 1 is going back to WW1.

    A red sun, bi-planes, a battle cruiser. Yes, I am indeed describing a sea battle, complete with air-crafts and all.

    A sharp cut to black, a slow fade in on a man's face, he's staring up. His face is slowly being engulfed with a shadow. Cut to an absolutely giant airship soaring over the man we were just looking in the face. All the while, the dub-step remix of 'Seven Nation Army' is deeper in tone, slower, more intimidating. Light intensifies and so does the song, in come the titles and they read "Battlefield 1"

    Conclusion

    I have never liked either game, I'm not an FPS fan in general. I don't have the skill for it and I don't have the time to play them enough to get the skill. I usually always hate the watered down "hero" story arcs, but I did love CoD 1 and 2 as well as Battlefield 1942, war classics.

    So which wins? The 3 minute Call of Duty trailer or the 1 minute 20 second Battlefield trailer? Battlefield, hands down. Better visuals, better era, better music.

    The visuals for it are rendered in engine, it's not fully representative of the final product (but we all saw Battlefront, it's gorgeous). The 'Seven Nation Army' remix is so dark and deep on so many levels it's hard to explain. It adds a level of grit and badassery to the "hero" concept, as well as a bit of evil, a bit of moral conflict.

    CoD takes it too far, to space? To a surface near Jupiter? I mean come on. CoD has gone too far in my opinion. Battlefield when back in time, CoD went forwards. In my opinion, Battlefield is going in the right direction.

    Nice man! I don't know why but I always felt that Battlefield was more well done than call of duty. Just my opinion though! :)

    I'm pleased to see so many COD fans genuinely interested in BF1! I've always been a fan of both franchises, although if forced to choice between the two, I would easily pick Battlefield. This comes from me enjoying the gameplay difference of the one better than the other, and they really are quite different game types these days. Kinda hard to compare them. But simply speaking on a trailer strength level, I personally think Battlefield 1 blew COD out of the water (and sent them flying into space lol)! The visuals are soooo much better, and I believe listening to the fans and going back in time really will bring in a new and wider base of players to the franchise.

    Battlefield 1 looks so amazing. I usually go Call of Duty, but lately it has been a beauty contest. All of the best gear and guns tends to be all bright colors and flashy. If I'm playing a war game, I want it based on war not flashiness. Plus the two trailers aren't even on the same level. Battlefield nailed their trailer while Call of Duty's was pretty sub par in my opinion.
