EA's press conference today was about as exciting as an appointment with the dentist, but at least Battlefield 1 ended the show on a high note. The title's latest "gameplay trailer" – which we don't 100 per cent believe is representative of the experience that you'll get on a PlayStation 4 – is extraordinary, bringing a Michael Bay twist to the atrocities of World War I.

Okay, so it's a bit ostentatious and a bit "Hollywood", but boy it looks promising, doesn't it?
