Verdun, a multiplayer shooter set during World War 1 which has only been on PC, has been rated by PEGI for both Xbox One and PlayStation 4. The rating was tweeted by PEGI themselves but has since been deleted.

In other World War 1 news, EA’s Patrick Soderlund intially dismissed the idea of setting the new Battlefield game in the era as he felt younger customers may have not heard of the war.

World War 1, we were worried that many of the younger consumers out there didn’t know that there was a World War 2 or Vietnam, so World War 1…

I would suspect that many younger gamers will find Patrick’s comments rather insulting. One also has to wonder why EA are worried about ‘younger consumers’ when the Battlefield games have always had Mature, 18+ rating.

  1. I think I’ll just wait for Battlefield 1. Why it’s called Battlefield 1, I have no idea… Something to do with some war at some point, maybe the first one what involved the planet Earth and humans. War of the Earth Part One – That was it!

  2. I wanted to get this on PC for a while, the reviews are pretty good for it.
    Not sure how well it will do on console though, I think it’s a bit too hardcore/niche for the mass market, but maybe the WW1 setting will attract a few.

  3. I hope the framerate is better than that in the above video.

  4. How young exactly is Battlefield’s target audience? Don’t most folks learn about WW1 at school?

  5. Maybe EA thought they’d believe it was a remake of battlefield 1, given how many remasters we’ve had this generation.

    • Actually there is no such game called Battlefield 1, or just Battlefield. The first in the series was BF 1942.

  6. WW1 is definitely on the British curriculum but I’m not sure about anywhere else.

    I think the issue isn’t that they don’t know about the World wars but that most kids probably aren’t interested.

    • Good point about it not being a ‘kids’ game though.

  7. It’s not like anyone learnt about a futuristic space war in school though is it? If that’s actually the thought process at EA/DICE then it’s ridiculous.
