Today, we’re happy to share the details of the Battlefield™ 1 Winter Update. This new update includes many exciting new features and improvements, both big and small, and as usual many of them are made possible thanks to your helpful feedback.
There’s a lot to cover. We’re bringing back Ribbons, increasing Class Rank caps, adding new unlockables, and tweaking various aspects of gameplay, graphics, UI, and more. Let’s jump into it.
You will now be able to collect Ribbons as you play. There are 20 different Ribbons to collect, and each time you get a Ribbon you also receive a 300XP. The Ribbons are designed to promote good teamplay and playing the objective.
If you have suggestions for other Ribbons you’d like us to add, we’re always listening! This is just the beginning.
It is now possible to unlock an Elite Codex for eight of the available primary weapons in the game. All you need to do is get 500 more kills per applicable weapon. Not only will you get a shiny Elite Codex, but you will also be awarded 25,000 bonus XP. Not bad when you’re chasing those new Class Ranks.
Max Class Ranks
We were impressed by how fast players reached Rank 10 in each primary Class. The new max Class Rank will now be 50. Let’s see how fast you reach max! When you hit 50, you will be granted some extra nice Class flair in the kill card to taunt your fallen foes. There will also be Dog Tags that you can unlock as you progress towards max Class Rank 50.
With the Winter Update we’re releasing some highly anticipated rent-a-server features. RSP admins will now be able to kick players from their server using the in-game UI, or swing a mighty ban hammer if someone is misbehaving. RSP admins will now also have prioritized access to their server.
On top of this, we’ve added the feature to vote for the next map after a match is over. Players on the server will get two options to vote for, and whichever alternative gets the most votes will be the next map. The options will be randomly selected from the server’s map rotation. This is done during the end of round screen, so no extra time between rounds has been added.
