Battlefield 1 monthly updates end June 2018


DICE will end Battlefield 1's monthly updates in June 2018, it's announced.

Battlefield 1 came out in October 2016, but with a new Battlefield game, which Eurogamer understands is set in World War 2 and is called Battlefield V, due out later this year, it makes sense developer DICE would turn its attention away from the year-and-a-half-old game and toward pastures new.

In a post on the Battlefield website, DICE content lead Jonas Elfving said players can expect fresh content and various tweaks and fixes up to June. Updates can include everything from matchmaking and weapon balancing to "even Dreadnought horns that sometimes won't stop blaring".

"Enjoy the road ahead and keep jumping in to Battlefield 1 regularly - you don't want to miss what's coming," Elfving said.

Peace time.

Battlefield 1's final expansion, Apocalypse, released earlier this year. The Rupture map from They Shall Not Pass was recently made available to all owners of the game. In May more maps will be made available to all.

A new mode, called Shock Operations, launches in June. This supports 40 players and sees attackers and defenders fight over sectors, just like in Operations mode. But with Shock Operations, the action is focused to one single map. DICE said it'll be a good shout if you don't have time for a full Operations match.

It sounds like that will be that for Battlefield 1. Who's up for some Battle Royale?
