The fall update has now arrived for Battlefield 1, taking up nearly 2 GB of hard drive space.
Game developers DICE released the patch today containing massive amounts of updates for the Xbox One, Playstation 4, and PC. Among the list, bug fixes, weapon and vehicle balancing, and various changes have been introduced to improve the gameplay experience in Battlefield 1.
Perhaps the most popular concerns revolve around Battlefield’s Operations game mode, which has been tuned to give the attackers a much-needed boost. Other updates include nerfing the Anti-Air and Mortar weapons, hit registration (specifically on aircraft’s), and Limpet Mines being indestructible until they are detonated.
Jeff Braddock, North American Community Manager for Battlefield, made the statement on the official forums: “Going forward we are addressing the balance issues with the Operations game mode. It’s clear that attackers need a boost. To increase the effectiveness of the attacking team, we are increasing the overall tickets for both Operations & Grand Operations. In addition, we are also making it somewhat easier to capture sectors as an attacker by reducing the amount of time it takes to capture a flags in Operations & Grand Operations. We’ve also increased the minimum tickets regained in grand operations to from 30 to 50, as well as increased the amount of tickets regained from killing retreating defenders. This will give more of a fighting chance to capture the next sector after previously capturing a sector while having very few tickets left.”
Battlefield 1 is available for the Xbox One, Playstation 4, and PC.
