EA Dice launches new update for Battlefield 1, ups Class Rank limit and more
Tuesday 14 February 2017 - 19:18 GMT
EA Dice has released a new update for Battlefield 1 dubbed the Winter Update. The new update introduces several new features to the game.
The first minor feature added to the game is the introduction of Ribbons. Players will be able to collect 20 different Ribbons during gameplay and receive additional XP every time they collect a new Ribbon.
The last feature added is the ability to kick and ban players for those who have rented a game server via one of EA's hosting partners.
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.
EA Dice stopped supporting hostable dedicated servers 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.
