Battlefield 1 is “Biggest Launch in DICE History”
Players have spent 59 million hours collectively in-game.
DICE’s Battlefield 1 has been a great success since launching on October 21st. According to the developer, which released an infographic covering the first 10 days for the FPS spanning from October 18th to 27th, 59 million hours were collectively spent by players in-game.
Nine million of those hours were in Operations mode. Around 32 million Battlepacks earned and 1.6 million Behemoth vehicles later, the Scout knife was judged the most dangerous melee weapon while horses were the best soldier-killing vehicle at 5.8 million kills.
DICE has noted Battlefield 1 to be its biggest launch in company history due to the daily active player count. As of now, the developer noted that it was ahead of Battlefield 4 when comparing launch week player numbers (though exact figures haven’t been provided).
