    Really, the soldier is Italian. Not French.

    Battlefield 1 art shows off an Italian soldier

    These days, we refer to The Great War as World War 1 for a reason – it truly was an international conflict that impacted almost every nation on Earth. Unfortunately, that worldwide element isn’t always reflected in our pop culture, especially when it comes to video games. Thankfully Battlefield 1 has made at least some effort to address that, as shown by newly released artwork of an Italian soldier.

    Of course this being the internet, the image immediately sparked a Twitter debate that the character was actually a French soldier. But there’s no goof here – French and Italian helmets were strikingly similar, but a quick Google search confirms the Italian model (you can see it three images down in this link). Meanwhile, the outfit only looks like the French blue uniform because of the chosen color scheme. Not that France won’t have a part to play in Battlefield 1 – in fact, DICE is dedicating an entire DLC expansion to the French post-launch.

    Battlefield 1 launches in Italy, France, and the rest of the world on October 21, 2016 for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One platforms.
