Battlefield 1: October 18

Get more as an Early Enlister
Battlefield™ 1 takes you back to The Great War, WW1, where new technology and worldwide conflict changed the face of warfare forever. Take part in every battle, control every massive vehicle, and execute every maneuver that turns an entire fight around. The whole world is at war – see what’s beyond the trenches.

Be the first on the front lines - snag the Early Enlister Deluxe Edition today and get access to the full game on October 18, three days before launch. Plus, get the Hellfighter, Red Baron, and Lawrence of Arabia packs full of themed weapons and gear, and five extra Battlepacks stuffed with great items.

Key Features:
Changing environments in locations all over the world. Discover every part of a global conflict from shore to shore – fight in besieged French cities, great open spaces in the Italian Alps, or vast Arabian deserts. Fully destructible environments and ever-changing weather create landscapes that change moment to moment; whether you’re tearing apart fortifications with gunfire or blasting craters in the earth, no battle is ever the same.

Huge multiplayer battles. Swarm the battlefield in massive multiplayer battles with up to 64 players. Charge in on foot as infantry, lead a cavalry assault, and battle in fights so intense and complex you'll need the help of all your teammates to make it through.

Game-changing vehicles. Turn the tide of battle in your favor with vehicles both large and larger, from tanks and biplanes to gigantic Behemoths, unique and massive vehicles that will be critical in times of crisis. Rain fire from the sky in a gargantuan Airship, tear through the world in the Armored Train, or bombard the land from the sea in the Dreadnought.

A new Operations multiplayer mode. In Operations mode, execute expert maneuvers in a series of inter-connected multiplayer battles spread across multiple maps. Attackers must break through the defense line and push the conflict onto the next map, and defenders must try to stop them.

The Early Enlister Deluxe Edition Includes:
Early Access on October 18th. Hit the ground first with Early Enlister Early Access, which lets you play the full game early on October 18th.

The Hellfighter Pack. Fight like hell and give no ground with the Hellfighter Pack. Inspired by The Harlem Hellfighters, the first African-American infantry unit and one of the toughest of the Great War, this pack contains themed items based on their heroic deeds.

The Red Baron Pack. Take to the skies with the Red Baron Pack, crammed with items inspired by the famous fighter pilot, the flying ace of the German air force.

The Lawrence of Arabia Pack. See another side of the war with the Lawrence of Arabia Pack. Grab items and weapons based on the adventures of the famous archaeologist and diplomat who played a pivotal role in the Arab Revolt against the Ottoman Empire.

3x vehicle skins. Make sure your enemies know who's coming for them with skins on three of the largest vehicles in the game.

5x Battlepacks. Prepare for battle with five additional Battlepacks, stuffed full of all the gear you need to hold your ground in an all-out war.

ImageBattlefield 1 Early Enlister Deluxe $79.99

ImageBattlefield™ 1 Standard Edition $59.99

Battlefield 1 is getting a Premium Pass and an Ultimate Edition, and the details have arrived.

EA has gone live with the $49.99 Premium Pass and $129.99 Ultimate Edition on Origin. Both are now available for purchase, and we have some details on what players are getting for the high-entry prices.

Despite a growing number of games abandoning paid map packs, including EA’s upcoming Titanfall 2, Battlefield 1’s Premium service will once again be made up of map packs. There will be four themed expansion packs that will, in total, give players 16 new maps (four per pack), elite classes, 20 new weapons, and two-weeks of early access. Additionally, players will get 14 Battlefield 1 Battlepacks and dog tags. The first DLC map pack, They Shall Not Pass, adds the French army and arrives March 2017.

The $129.99 Ultimate Edition comes with all the extras found in the Early Enlister Edition with the Premium Pass also thrown in. Much like the Early Enlister Edition, the Ultimate Edition will launch October 18, three days earlier than the standard edition.

Battlefield 1 is out October 21 on PS4, Xbox One, and PC



Oh man, I couldn't get my wallet out fast enough!

The beta was fun, even better after they patched it mid-way through. I'll probably pick it up, but only after Black Friday if there is a deal. I can't see paying the ridiculous price they put on games these days when they usually release half finished.

I'll take a look on Black Friday also, it'll probably be $4 cheaper so I may not purchase it then either!

Yeah, I went ahead and picked it up; Green Man Gaming.

Graphics are outstanding; Moder and I played a few campaigns; crazy!!

The Zeppelin is really nice, dropping bombs and machine gunning those below; The Anti-Air guns work very well.

The maps so far are really well done and the Armour train shows up and is pretty menacing looking.
too...

They have been banning players as well; I didn't see anything thing that looked iffy but, I was just trying to stay alive.

So far it's enjoyable other than the dying part...

Just curious: Who else bought and is playing BF1?

So far I played with Sidewinder, Druzin and Doonerz. I think Missile bought it as well but I haven't seen him in-game yet.

The game is a ton of fun compared to BF4 but as usual, you kinda have to be in a functioning squad or it gets frustrating real quick. Unless the whole sniper-camping thing is your cup of tea...

I haven't noticed as many of those; played operations and I think it will be one of the best game play types; we were taking the objectives until the other side launched a wicked counter-attack and we lost the last one!

Battlefield 1 – best class loadouts for Assault, Medic, Support, Scout

Assault Class: Gas Shredder

A shotgun of your choice (M97, Model 10-A, or Hellfighter will work) + Gas Grenades + P08 Pistol.

This is one of the most overpowered combos in Battlefield 1 right now. Basically, the point of this setup is to overwhelm your enemies with gas clouds so they either move away, or put on gas masks.

Equipping gas masks means they won’t be able to aim down sights, instantly putting them at a disadvantage. You don’t need to ADS with shotguns to be effective, however, which means you’re going to have a golden opportunity of taking out a few of them before they known what hit ’em. Of course, you will need to equip a gas mask yourself, but like we explained, when you’re using a shotgun, it doesn’t matter.

The P08 pistol is one of the best in hip fire accuracy. It does less damage than the M1911, but works better in close-quarter situations. Given that you’ll be running into rooms full of enemies, your main weapon will run out and you’re going to need a trusty sidearm to take out the few enemies remaining before stopping to reload.

You can also replace the shotgun in this build with the Automatico M1918 Trench. This SMG has amazing hip fire accuracy, and an incredibly high rate-of-fire, making it a true shredder in CQC. Watch out, though, as it does run out of ammo pretty quickly.

Assault Class: Armour Killer

The MP18 Trench + M1911 + AT Rocket Gun + Dynamite + Light Anti-Tank Grenade.

The main function of the Assault is to take out armour. Assault is, without a doubt, the single most dangerous threat facing anyone in armoured vehicles, and this loadout intends to make use of that.

The MP18 Trench is one of the early unlocks for the Assault, and is overall among the best weapons for the class. It works great in close range, which is where you’re mostly going to be with this setup.

The rest of the gadgets are designed to help you focus solely on taking out armour. It’s also a good idea to save this preset in-game and switch to it when you really start seeing enemy armour dominate.

Although you won’t have regular grenades with this, the other two you have (and the Dynamite) can all be used to kill infantry just fine should the need arise.

Medic Class: Sensible Healer

M1907 SL Sweeper + M1911 + Medic Pouch + Syringe.


This loadout is made for those looking to win games as Medics. Being a good Medic means you’re constantly on the front lines risking your life to revive and heal others, and occasionally dealing with incoming threats.

The Medical Pouch and Syringe are perfect for that goal, and the M1907 SL Sweeper is a solid weapon that you can fire in full-auto and not lose much accuracy. Constantly tending to the needs of your teammates is one of the best feelings in any Battlefield game, and you’ll witness first-hand what it’s like to turn matches around.

We recommend the M1911 as a sidearm because of its slight advantage at range, but that’s left to your preference.

Medic Class: Long-range Support

Mondragon Sniper + M1911 + Medical Pouch + Rifle Grenade + Smoke Grenade.


If you prefer to stay back a bit but still want to support your team, this loadout gives you access to a solid long-range rifle and the ability to suppress faraway targets and harass snipers.

The bandages will get you back to full health quickly when you take damage, but the real killers here are the Smoke and Rifle Grenades.

The Smoke Grenade is great on Rush and Operations, or really in any situation where you need to either render enemy sharpshooters useless for a few seconds, or to advance on well-defended front lines, without painfully witnessing your teammates get picked off one by one.

You can throw one of these to help the squad move forward, while you stay further back and cover them. The Rifle-mounted Grenade is perfect for suppressing enemy snipers or anyone taking cover you can’t otherwise shoot.

Support Class: Front Lines Assaulter

Madsen MG Storm + P08 Pistol + Ammo Crate + Limpet Charge.


The Support Class is perhaps one of the hardest classes to get to grips with thanks to its arsenal of unconventional weapons. This loadout, however, presents the closest thing we have to Assault Rifle-levels of accuracy and utility.

The Madsen MG Storm is an incredibly accurate LMG with more than enough bullets to get the job done. You can use it at close and medium ranges without the need to hold the trigger for long to gain accuracy. The P08 is a great CQC pistol as well, and together with the Madsen Storm forms a decent BF4-style combo.

You and your teammates are going to need a constant supply of ammo, obviously, which is where the Ammo Crate comes in. Unlike the Pouch, the Crate supplies explosives and can give out ammo to multiple teammates at once.

Generally speaking, you won’t be running and gunning with this setup, so it’s best to sit tight for a few seconds every time you get the chance, throw the Crate down and help keep teammates at the front well-supplied.

In case you need to breach locked doors, or take out armour, the Limpet Charge will get the job done. Ran out? No problem, just resupply!

Support Class: Suppressive Shell Shocker

Lewis Gun Suppressive + M1911 + Ammo Crate + Mortar Air.


This particular loadout is made for people new to the Support class, and anyone who wishes to play more of a support role rather than an aggressive one. This Lewis Gun variant is perfect for suppressing enemies and has enough bullets to keep them that way for a while, effectively preventing them from returning fire.

Since you won’t be seeing much action, the Mortar Air is another way you can help out your teammates. The Mortar is incredibly powerful right now in the game, not to mention it’s pretty easy to use. Just place one down, aim and land your shells in clusters of enemies for maximum damage.

You can switch to the HE Mortar variant if you need to take out an Armoured Train or vehicle. Mortars also resupply relatively quickly, which you’ll be able to do thanks to your big Ammo Crate.

Scout Class: Ultimate Sniper

SMLE MK3 Marksman + P08 + Flare Gun Spot + Sniper Shield.


Look, we’re not judging, and sometimes the situation calls for a stationary sniper in Battlefield 1. It doesn’t help the team that much, but if you have to do it, this loadout is among the best you can run with.

The SMLE MK3 Marksman is one of the best snipers in the game, and this variant comes with a decent scope for proper long-range dominance. Couple it with the Sniper Shield, and you’ll be harder to hit when going prone, for an ultra-low profile.

You also need the Flare Gun Spot to reveal enemies on the map for your benefit, as well as that of your teammates. The Flare Gun is much more useful with this setup than K-bullets, seeing as you will be seeing very little armour.

You can replace the Shield with the Decory for maximum trolling, or if you want to change sniping positions without altering the enemy team.

Scout Class: Objective Pusher

SMLE MK3 Infantry + P08 + Flare Gun Spot + Trench Periscope.


This setup is made for the brave few who can hold their own in a fight with a sniper rifle, but prefer to be near the action than far away on a hill.

The SMLE MK3 variant is perfect for close-quarter combat with its high rate-of-fire. You can’t put a scope on this one, but iron sights are clear enough for the ranges you’ll be engaging at that it doesn’t really matter.

The Flare Gun means your squad is always aware of campers defending the point, especially helpful when said point is contested and you can’t quite figure out where the last couple of enemies are hiding.

The Trench Periscope can be used on your way to capture objectives to identify threats early for your team. It’s also a great way of checking if someone is coming to take the point from you in Operations when your squad is left behind defending it.

If you reach level 10 with the Scout, you can unlock the Marini Henry sniper. It’s one of the best weapons in the game, but you’ll have to reload after every kill. The Marini Henry is satisfying to use, but won’t quite it cut it if you’re looking to maximise your performance.

I don't know who wrote this but, Here we go with "The most overpowered weapon whine again". Gas attacks? Check. Really happened in WW1; that's what a gas mask is for and by the way it doesn't interfere with down sighting; If it is a concern don't put mask on and oh wait; you will die within seconds! It is very easy to put on and take off as well.

All these weapons are primitive by today's standards; flintlocks if you will. Some work better than other is most cases either up close in (again), it is trench warfare after all; the planes? for all intense purposes nothing more than paper and wood.

You can change weapons when you get enough war bonds for taking flags or other things;that's how you get better weapon to have in your inventory.

There are many outstanding stationary weapons to use as well, I love the Anti-Aircraft gun, rapid fire and deadly; Field pieces are another favorite too.

Flame throwers are crazy in this game.

The game currently as far Moder and I have been able to determine is in Vanilla mode (for obvious reasons) with a hardcore and custom set-up coming soon.

I think the best mode is called "Operations" which is a series of maps you move from one end to the other to take to win.
You should hear and see when the teams do the fixed bayonet charges with the whistles, yelling and screaming.

Game hasn't lagged out, glitched so far (for me); I did have a strange problem last night with my mouse but, that could be software related on my end.

They still have bug in Origin but, the game itself seems pretty smooth and I have tried both ULTRA and HIGH setting across the board and noticed very little difference in play so, I left it on ULTRA.


BF4 this isn't; no comparison what so ever.

Enjoy

WAAAA, that was my first reaction until I read the whole article. If you read it closely they are not whining about the gas attack being overpowered, it's all about the Gas Shredder combo and how to use it and if done right, how lethal it can be and why. They are simply, (in their view) stating a fact which sounds very logical to me.

This is one of the most overpowered combos in Battlefield 1 right now. Basically, the point of this setup is to overwhelm your enemies with gas clouds so they either move away, or put on gas masks.


If you carefully read the rest of the statement you will learn why they believe it to be true.

There is a ton of useful info here, I posted only a fraction of it. Click the links in the article and learn :bigsmile:

I read it; played it and it does work just like it did in real life; I'm sure somebody will start the Behemoth/Zeppelin/ etc as being overpowered. I figure any weapon you can take other out with rapidly is a good thing!

ANY how I have been playing BF1 and so far I like it just hate the ea servers and softcore mode, can't wait till hardcore is released. You guys planning on getting a server?

Hey Pancho, what's been going on? Four or five of us have BF1 now and a few are waiting for Black Friday. The soft-core version does suck, but the game seems to be well made so far. Staying alive is the hard part. We haven't discussed a server for the game, it's a little to early since only a few of us have the game at this point. When everyone gets the game and if they all like it I'm sure we'll talk about a server. Thanks for stopping by and inquiring about it. Maybe we'll see you in game.

Here is information from EA Forums concerning the rental of servers"

"
Hello Battlefield Community,

We’d like to share a bit more information about the Rental Server program, coming this November.
As you know, Rental Servers for PS4 and Xbox One have gone through EA. Now with PC Rental Servers also going through EA, there’s quite a lot of questions. Let’s answer some now:

How much will it cost?

PC

1 day: $2.99
7 days: $11.99
30 days: $42.99
90 days: $99.99
180 days: $149.99


PLAYSTATION® 4 / XBOX ONE

1 day: $1.99
7 days: $7.99
30 days: $26.99
90 days: $64.99
180 days: $99.99

When will the Rental Server Program Launch?
We’re excited to bring RSP to Battlefield 1 this November.

What types of features can I expect?
The biggest question, of course. We will update this thread tomorrow with some of the features you will have in the RSP.
Note: One of the top requested features if the Kick/Ban feature. We hear you and are working on rolling that out after the launch of the RSP.

Thank you for your continued patience and stay tuned for more information regarding the Battlefield 1 Rental Server Program.

The Teams at EA/DICE
Braddock512

October 19, 2016 4:20PM
UPDATE 1:

What types of features can I expect?
Among many other settings, players renting servers will be able to adjust:

ticket count
bullet damage
modes
weapons
maps



More info to come!
-Braddock512-

October 28, 2016 8:11PM edited October 28
Update 2:

Additional features you can enable/disable in rented servers:

• Kill Cam
• Minimap
• Friendly Fire
• 3D Spotting
• Fog


More to come!

-Braddock512-

October 31, 2016 6:24PM
UPDATE 3:

Will there be RCON or PROCON tools?

We are commited to developing in-game support for the most popular plugins used with previous Battlefield titles to ensure that admins have similar levels of customization. However, the new RSP servers will not support 3rd party tools like RCON or ProCON. Please stay tuned to the Battlefield channels for more updates.

Why are the prices different for PC and console?

PC servers will be running at 60Hz, with console servers running at 30Hz. Pricing has been adjusted accordingly. Please stay tuned to the Battlefield channels for more updates.

Are the prices for servers affected by slot-size?

Server rental prices are not set by slot-size, but the slot-size will vary depending on the mode chosen in the rotation. Please stay tuned to the Battlefield channels for more updates.



More details to come.

The Teams at EA/DICE"

Added in 5 minutes 19 seconds:
If we were to rent one say for 6 months it would cost the five who current play the game $30.00 per month; If parties are interested and of course others who are members may buy in to it.

Maybe build back up to attract other players BUT, set server up to take care of kicking, etc.. similar to ones' we have played on so we don't go down the crazy rabbit hole of admining again.

Thoughts?
