  • ‘Battlefield 1’ New DLC & Custom Mode, Hints March Release
  • “Battlefield 1” was quite the pleasant surprise. While you see games taking on into the future with wilder and wilder concepts, like Titanfall’s robot fights and COD: Infinite Warfare’s space battles, this one went back to its roots and re-lived the days of World War One in the full glory with which the game had started back in the early 2000’s.

“Battlefield 1” was quite the pleasant surprise. While you see games taking on into the future with wilder and wilder concepts, like Titanfall’s robot fights and COD: Infinite Warfare’s space battles, this one went back to its roots and re-lived the days of World War One in the full glory with which the game had started back in the early 2000’s.

According to Express, “Battlefield 1” is getting big updates soon. One of the biggest coming changes is a new custom game mode named “Bleed Out”. In it, players will fight their normal battles, when downed, they will come up faster, but regenerative health has been disabled.
This is just one of the series of updates and changes coming to the game. There are ever rising number of custom game modes and they will keep on expanding through the year.

There will not only be free content released for the game, Game Rant reports. Those familiar with EA’s practices will not be surprised to hear that the first paid DLC is coming to the servers of “Battlefield 1”. The bonus content is named “They shall not pass” and sadly for Tolkin fans it does not include an epic Balrog battle, nor an exploration campaign in Mordor. It includes a packet of four new maps which will become available right after purchase. Owners of a season pass for the game will receive the DLC for free. “They will not pass” is expected to be released sometime in March.

The official forum of “Battlefield 1” has shared that in February there will be a new update released for the game. It is not yet stated exactly what it will contain, but it is noted that it is done in collaboration with the players, based on their feedback. Most probably the February update will not add to content as much, as it will be a technical fix to bugs, glitches and will also add some needed balance reworks. “Battlefield 1” is available on PC, PS 4 and XBOX One.
