EA Dice has announced that PC gamers will not be able to host multiplayer servers themselves. The game developer forces players to rent multiplayer servers through verified partner companies.


With the recent announcement EA Dice has also released the prices of renting a multiplayer server. Renting servers for the PC version of the game will be roughly twice as expensive as renting servers for the console version of the game.

Renting a Battlefield 1 multiplayer server for a period 30 days will cost $42,99 for the PC version and $26,99 on the console version. EA Dice did not comment on why renting PC multiplayer servers is more expensive than the console equivalent.

By renting a multiplayer server players can create private and public gaming sessions. The rented multiplayer servers can be tweaked by changing game options and map rotations.

Battlefield 2142 was the last Battlefield game that allowed gamers to host their own servers. Since Battlefield Bad Company 2 the game developer forces players to rent multiplayer servers.

Why EA Dice stopped supporting hostable dedicated servers is likely related to wanting to generate more revenue. Many other popular shooter games such as Counter Strike: Global Offensive and Team Fortress 2 still allow gamers to host their own server.
