Battlefield 1

EA’s Rent-A-Server program, which allows players to rent servers and host their own private matches, won’t launch with Battlefield 1. However, it will be available “close after launch”.

In a blog post, EA also didn’t specify price. The servers will be available to rent through the in-game store and players will go directly through the publisher for servers rather than third party companies. One of the benefits is that EA can “secure the quality of the actual hardware.”

“Since the servers come from the same provider, it will give everyone the same uniform experience. Furthermore, if you have questions or need help, you will be able to reach out to EA Support directly instead of third-party support.”

There may be some restriction to the modes available at launch for rented servers though they may arrive later based on player feedback. “But you can expect that we’ll keep adding customization options and UI design throughout 2016.”

Battlefield 1 is out on October 21st for Xbox One, PS4 and PC.

    The EA rented private server news, was the first good news I’ve heard of BF1 so far. Now I have to swallow the idea of a boring WW1 game that has half of the quality and excitement and also lacks half of the game content of a BF3 or a BF4 online war game! BF1 is the kiddie “BF Star Wars Battlefront” of the BF games. Let alone another black eye, on EA and DICE for not releasing a quality Battlefield Bad Company3 game, that is still 2 or more years away!!! And a quality online BF5 modern war game… that’s now to far away in the future to even consider.

    I don’t know if BF1 is worth all the money that’s required to own a private server and all the BF1 game parts itself. And the idea of a quality experience of being on EA servers… means nothing. And there’s no guarantee the EA official servers, will be any better than in the past.
