DICE is moving to monthly updates for Battlefield 1

Every few days I'll run across some wild gif from Battlefield 1 and think, "Hey, I should get back into that at some point." It hasn't happened, in part because I don't own the expansion pass, but it might soon. In a blog post, DICE laid ou...

An early look at Battlefield 1's first expansion

They Shall Not Pass, the first expansion pack for Battlefield 1, will drop in March 2017. This is the one with the playable French army (an unfortunate omission from the base game), as well as more maps and weapons, as you'd expect. DICE is...

Today's big Battlefield 1 update brings much-needed changes

DICE is rolling out a meaty fall update for Battlefield 1 across all platforms, and I've definitely got some late nights ahead of me trying to squeeze in more time with this game. Some of the changes (find the full pdf here) are expected bu...

Review: Battlefield 1

Annual Battlefield games, much like Call of Duty, are no surprise. They give the Call of Duty series a run for its money in terms of DLC (they not only have a season pass, but a "club" system), and in any given year, they could produce a pa...

Review in Progress: Battlefield 1

[Due to a last minute code and an international trip later this week, our Battlefield 1 review is going to be handled differently from normal. I played through the campaign and a little bit of multiplayer, which I'll tell you about here. Ch...

Battlefield 1 has a playable pigeon sequence

Pigeons are mostly a garbage bird. They're rats with wings. They exist to further crowd the streets of big cities and to carry disease. Also, they love to suddenly fly at your face, making you flinch like you're the asshole. Pigeons are us...

We're giving away three Battlefield 1 collector's editions

EA's explosive time-travel back to World War I releases next week. On October 18, Battlefield 1 launches and takes us to an era of mustard gas, trench warfare, and horses. How quaint. Early indications are that the semi-titular battlef...

Battlefield 1's campaign sure looks shiny

Battlefield 1 has a campaign...I guess. I've never been one to associate the Battlefield series with single-player, even with Bad Company being eight years old. To me, the series has excelled at multiplayer; the basic concept is just so rif...

Battlefield 1's campaign looks surprisingly good

Most Battlefield players don't show up for the single-player campaign, but if it's there, sure, I'll probably go through it before switching over to the multiplayer. These stories have never been what I'd call "good," but perhaps Battlefie...

DICE is tweaking Battlefield 1's Conquest mode

A whole mess of people played the Battlefield 1 beta. 13.2 million, to be more precise. While many of us just used the limited experience to find out if Battlefield's move to WWI was indeed a good one (and to have fun with horse-related hij...

Battlefield 1's PC specs shouldn't give you shell shock

Now that Battlefield 1 has peeked its head up out of the trenches long enough to have a beta, we know what kind of armaments PC players need to stand a chance in no man's land. EA actually published minimum specs prior to the beta, but...

Battlefield 1 had one of the biggest betas ever

As it turns out, people really want to turn the clock back to 1914. Or, they really want to get a sneak peek at one of this year's biggest video games. It's one or the other. Whichever it is, EA DICE's Battlefield 1 had a wildly succes...

Battlefield 1 is getting a customary FPS Season Pass

EA has announced the season pass for Battlefield 1, and it looks like it's going to run you $50 for four expansions. The first of which is due in March 2017 (five months after the game is released, so maybe wait before buying it?), titled "...

This month's Battlefield 1 open beta has two modes

As a series, Battlefield usually shows well in trailers given the sheer spectacle of its multiplayer. Case in point: this one for Battlefield 1! You've got horses, tanks, planes, and a ferocious-looking armored train all clashing in a sand...

If you skip the 20 minute pageantry at the start of the video below, you'll find yourself smack dab in the middle of one hour of Battlefield 1 footage, which showcases a ton of different weapons, environments, and vehicles. Yep, it sur...

A history channel analyzes Battlefield 1

Look, it may not be the history channel, but those bastards are too busy splitting their budget between pawn shop shows (plus chasing the success with a spinoff, Pond Stars) and finding whack jobs to serve as expert witnesses for a 12-part...
