Just a couple of days ago, EA and DICE (publisher and developer, respectively) have announced the upcoming arrival of a new Battlefield 1 update. While details have been a bit vague that time, most players thought that it's going to be a massive one. Indeed, it seems to be a huge surprise. And oh, its release date has been even revealed -- finally!
According to GameSpot, the people behind Battlefield 1 has unveiled via Twitter the new update for the hit shooter game. It's no other than the Winter update. The tweet somehow indicates that it should arrive at the game sometime next week (though no particular date has been pointed out).
It's worth noting that the aforementioned Battlefield 1 doesn't entirely connect to title's first ever expansion. The latter basically refers to the They Shall Not Pass DLC, which is slated to arrive in March this year. Unfortunately, though, the announcement (once again) didn't reveal anything specific about the update.
Nonetheless, several reports about what this Battlefield 1 update may consist of is somewhat related to the changes DICE made to the game. Just recently, the studio launched the game's Public Test Servers. If anything else, the changes seen in the aforesaid server may just what this forthcoming update be all about.
If the claims are true, then ribbons may finally return to Battlefield 1. These here, in their most organic form, grant players the experience whenever they reach a certain milestone (one that happens during a match). It also refers to the increase of a player's maximum rank to 50 at least. And, more importantly, it covers the capability of voting for the game's next new map.
As for those who've yet to get a good grasp of the new Battlefield 1 Public Test Server, the studio has released its full patch notes. It can be seen here. As for the new update, as mentioned above, nothing specific (except for the release date) has been unearthed.
