Today, DICE laid out its plans for the immediate future of Battefield 1, including new additions, exciting events, and gameplay tweaks based on player feedback.
DICE provided the following details of its plans:
HARDCORE SERVERS ARE COMING SOON
We know that elite Battlefield 1 players have been eagerly awaiting fighting on Hardcore Servers, and we’re just as excited as you are. They’re coming soon, so keep an eye out for more news in the near future.
WE’RE TWEAKING THE SUEZ MAP
Based on your input, we are changing the layout of the Suez map in Conquest to make the matches more balanced and the map size more fitting. We have expanded the layout to feature five instead of three flags. We’re also reducing the capture area size of the two control points located within the map’s villages (currently flag A and C) to create more dynamic matches. Furthermore, we’re adding one armored vehicle to each team’s base to give dominated teams a better chance to quickly get across the map and capture a control point behind enemy lines.
BATTLEFEST STARTS NOVEMBER 16
Bring out your calendars and mark November 16 with a big “PTFO” – a new Battlefest is en route. This week-long celebration of the Battlefield franchise will be packed with new activities, including log-in rewards, a livestream, a unique Battlepack revision, community missions, and much more – stay tuned for more information!
FOG OF WAR: INTRODUCING CUSTOM GAMES
As the first Official Custom Game, Fog of War will premiere at Battlefest. In this unique Team Deathmatch experience, you will be challenged by limited sight as you’re fighting in fog with the mini-map and soldier name tags turned off. You’ll find Official Custom Games in the Battlefield 1 Multiplayer menu.
NEW BATTLEFIELD 1 UPDATES COMING THIS MONTH
During the month of November, we will release a major update for Battlefield 1, filled with various tweaks and improvements. Among other things, we will be adding the Rent-a-Server Program, a new Custom Game and tweaks to matchmaking and server balancing.
GET READY FOR GIANT’S SHADOW
Giant’s Shadow is an upcoming new map for Battlefield 1 and will be arriving in December as a free* update.
And that’s it folks. Battlefield 1 is currently available on PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
