GTA V might not have World War I era weapons and vehicles, but it has Zeppelins and biplanes.
So it isn’t impossible to remake early 20th century scenes from Battlefield 1's debut trailer in modern day Los Santos. It will just look a little bit different. J57F did an excellent job with his remake.
Bonus edit, by 2kliksphilip, the Battlefield 1's trailer with Battlefield 1942's music. Fits nicely.
