DICE’s massively popular Battlefield 1 has received a new ‘winter update’ in preparation for the games’ first big DLC, They Shall Not Pass, due next month.
Arguably the main feature of the update is that each individual class’ level cap has been increased from 10 to 50, adding much more replayability to multiplayer. The update also adds a new way to earn XP, through ribbons. Players of previous Battlefield titles will be familiar with the system, which rewards players for in-game feats with experience points. The final major change introduced by the update is the ability to vote on maps at the end of each match, a feature that has been long-since requested by gamers.
There are numerous minor changes to the game that you can check out here. The main aim of the patch seems to be to prepare the game for it’s upcoming DLC content due in March. We’ll be sure to keep an eye on that as we get closer to release.
