Players of the Battlefield franchise are no doubt familiar with the way patches are structured with seasonal updates. This is, excitingly, all about to change as DICE layouts the future of the Battlefield franchise.
DICE has revealed during their recent The Road Ahead that seasonal patches are finally no more. Now, instead DICE will be implementing monthly patches to their game with the first one releasing soon. This of course will allow DICE to implement what the community wants at a much faster pace, such as the inclusion of the Platoon system which is essentially Battlefield’s version of the clan feature found in many games.
While no exact launch date has been revealed outside of a May window, you can expect some of the following fixes, and features in the upcoming patch.
- Quality of life fixes.
- Streamlined flow into matches including the Operations game mode.
- New variants for the class level 10 weapons such as the Hellreigher and Martini-Henry.
- Gameplay issues being improved such as making the game more balanced for both teams and more.
Aside from this, DICE has also revealed the very first glimpses of the second expansion DLC for Battlefield 1 “In The Name Of Tsar” with three concept art images that features snowy battlefields. Check them out below alongside a synopsis of the expansion:
“Battlefield 1 In The Name Of The Tsar will bring you to the Eastern Front, where you will fight alongside the Russian army and witness the brutality of combat and the bitter cold of the Russian winters, as seen in the concept exploration images in this post. Prepare yourself for all new tactics employed by the Russian army. Though the frost is cold, the steel is colder.”
