Battlefield 5 Set During World War I, Releasing October?

According to a retail listing, the Battlefield franchise is revisiting history and will take place during the Great War. I am not sure if I can believe this, since a large part of the appeal with these games seems to be fancy, modern weaponry.

Rectifying slow-firing weapons and excruciating trench warfare with the fast-paced, vehicle-focused Battlefield model sounds nearly impossible, so I would be very surprised if this listing turns out to be accurate. Have you seen what tanks looked like back then? You'd have a tough time launching off a ramp and shooting down a helicopter with one of these, I'll tell you that much.
