The game is centered around The Great War, you'll fight in a besieged French city and in the sands of Arabia. DICE hopes to take "players on an epic journey across a war-torn world, taking them to the Great War and providing something both varied and unique in Battlefield 1.” World War 1 is the birth of modern warfare and DICE wants players to feel the "intensity and immersion" of the battles.

DICE released a few screen captures from the official trailer today showing off some of the real in-engine visuals. If you've seen the trailer, they may be familiar:
