A game trailer pro created a Battlefield short film with footage from multiplayer matches

The Battlefields – particularly the last two – are great-looking games, and the folks at DICE know how to cut a hot trailer. But what if you were to make a trailer made up exclusively of clips captured during actual, unscripted gameplay?

That’s the challenge that Gage Allen set out for himself. Allen is a professional videogame trailer producer, and he’s used to working with promotional footage to put together videos for games like Stellaris, Conarium, and Starpoint Gemini.

Allen took completely unscripted gameplay footage from multiplayer matches of Battlefield 1 and Battlefield V over the last two months and cut them together into the stirring trailer you can watch below. While characters still have that too-fast movement you always see in multiplayer, the shot selection, editing, voiceover work, and composition are all very well done, and more than anything they showcase the amazing level of detail and grand scale of Battlefield’s multiplayer maps.

The film also shows off the kind of destruction you can find in modern Battlefield games, with buildings reduced to burning rubble before your eyes, and airships crashing to earth in flames. Allen juxtaposes shots from the verdant fields of Arras, France with the utter devastation at Verdun, highlighting the destructive nature of war and the cost that comes with it.
