DICE is trying hard to make Battlefield 1's equipment and, er, battlefields look as historically authentic as possible. But chances are very slim that you ever actually saw any of the Great War in living color. Maybe that's why, when game photography enthusiast berdu drained the color out of these carefully composed Battlefield 1 screenshots (on top of a few other subtle photo tricks), it started looking not just authentic but eerily real.

Seriously, if you snuck a few of these pictures into the Powerpoint presentation for a World War 1 history lecture nobody would notice. Actually, if any teachers/professors/students want to give that a try, you should definitely drop us an email at the address below and let us know how it goes.
