"Battlefield 1" newest update is now released for PC. The Community Test Environment is set to proceed to PC, PS4, and Xbox One sometime in the future.
DICE announced that a new feature for "Battlefield 1 is set to be released on PC sometime this year. The Community Test Environment, a branch of servers which contain game elements which are yet to be released publicly, is set to be coming to World War 1 shooter. This comes as no surprise for fans since the progenitors, Battlefield 4 and Battlefield 3, have had their respective CTEs.
DICE, via a post on "Battlefield 1" website, has stated that Battlefield 1's CTE will include "new features, improved/changed content, and experiments that aren't yet (and may never be) ready for public release." The conception is initially to involve the public much sooner in order to gather feedback from them and, consequently, to make the necessary changes in accordance with such feedbacks from gamers, before opting for an update for everyone. Other famous games like "Overwatch" and "The Division," are also set to have updates with their own testing servers.
DICE is set to release codes to selected community members and "Battlefield veterans" for admission into the CTE. The rest of the gamers can register for a chance to use the Battlefield Companion app on PC and mobile. Presently, the Battlefield 1 CTE is available solely on PC, though DICE hopes to expand the launch of the CTE to PlayStation 4 and Xbox One ultimately.
As of this time, nothing remains confirmed. What is certain is that gamers can own the $50.00 Battlefield 1 premium pass in order to get into the CTE on any platform available. Battlefield's first paid expansion, "They Shall Not Pass," is scheduled for release in March this year. Earlier this year, DICE has revealed that updates come with four maps, expanded weapons choices, new modes, among varied features.
