Some gamers have pointed out that the pigeon scene in Battlefield 1 reminds people of the same scene in Assassins Creed 3. However in Assassins Creed 3 gamers are playing as an eagle.
In Battlefield 1 you do get to look at the Great War from many different perspectives and one of these is in the single player mission when you play looking through the eyes of a tank driver.
The crew get caught and trapped and they release a messenger pigeon. In a brief sequence you get to control the pigeon and get to see the scale of the war extended for many miles from high in the sky along with swooping down closer to the terrain and chasing other birds.
Take a look at the videos below to see what we mean and do you agree that Battlefield 1 took the idea from Assassins Creed 3?
