YouTube's DefendTheHouse is back with new "Mythbusters" videos, the latest being for EA's recently released World War I shooter Battlefield 1.
Across two videos numerous myths are tested, like if a horse can stand on top of a plane, if a human character can stand on top of a moving plane, if a sniper shield can protect you from grenade damage, and if you can land a plane on the dreadnought. Other myths tested include whether or not syringes can damage enemies, if you can stand on observation balloons, and if you can stand on a zeppelin as it's going down. We won't spoil the results for you. As usual, the music selections are excellent. Check out the videos below (via Game Informer).
You can check out all of DefendTheHouse's Mythbusters videos--including those for Star Wars: Battlefront and Fallout 4--here on YouTube.
In other news about Battlefield 1, a new patch came out this week that fixes bugs and more. You can see the full patch notes here. Additionally, players have discovered a zeppelin glitch that turns the airships into tornadoes of fire.
GameSpot's Battlefield 1 review scored the game a 9/10.
"With Battlefield 1, EA and DICE have proven the viability of World War I as a time period worth revisiting in first-person shooters," reviewer Miguel Concepcion said. "It brings into focus countries and nationalities that do not exist today while also shedding light on how the outcome of that war has shaped our lives. As World War II shooters proved many years ago, no game can truly capture the entirety of a global conflict. This is why the focused structure of the War Stories anthology works well. Moreover, Operations succeeds as an effective educational primer on the battles that this gripping adversarial mode are based on. Battlefield 1 is just an introduction to one of the deadliest world events in history, but it is an outstanding, feature-rich package in both its emotional stories and strong multiplayer."
