As teases go, it’s only a little one. A flirtations tickle, little more.

So, what exactly is being teased here? That would be the first major expansion to hit Battlefield 1 since launch. Entitled They Shall Not Pass, the expansion will feature all-new maps, new weapons, and the new playable French Army faction.  They Shall Not Pass will truly expand the theater of all-out war. Be ready. … Read More »

This system uses an algorithm to compare the real time stats of a game with that of what it thinks an average player can achieve and if the results seem to out of the ordinary or exceptional then they can be deemed to be cheating. A flawless … Read More »

Guns, guns, guns. Without them, modern warfare would just be a lot of pushing and shoving. And Battlefield 1‘s guns are some of the meatiest, most believable around. We loved Battlefield 1 – and we think that it (more or less) nailed that delicate weapon balance in multiplayer from the off. We still hate shotguns though, and we can’t hit a barn door with the Martini-Henry. You might have a different opinion – and here’s your chance to have your say. DICE’s chief weapons designer has taken to Reddit to ask for any and all feedback about the guns of … Read More »

In certain dark places on the internet you will here it said of Battlefield that it is a tactical war simulator, and this may well be true.
