Battlefield 1 on Xbox One

Nearly a month after its worldwide launch on Xbox One, Playstation 4 and Windows, EA DICE’s blockbuster shooter Battlefield 1 has received today a massive Fall update. The upgrade brings several bug fixes, gameplay improvements, balance changes and more (via Polygon). Most of the fixes are dedicated to the game’s multiplayer experience, and skilled player should welcome the addition of hardcore servers which will provide a more “realistic” experience by removing crosshairs, minimaps and other assists.

Among other highlights, the game’s store is getting two new tabs, one that will let players buy Battlepacks (coming in a future update) and another one dedicated to the new Rent-a-Server program (RSP): this latest addition will allow gamers to rent private servers to set up custom matches with carefully selected maps and gameplay options.

You can download this Fall Update right now on your platform of choice and we invite you to check the long changelog over here. Sound off in the comments if you think the various multiplayer improvements will raise the bar for the already critically-acclaimed shooter.
