Battlefield 1 Will Have 64 Player Matches, Server Browser on PC
Back to its roots, indeed.
A lot of the hype and excitement around the upcoming Battlefield 1 seems to be rooted in the fact that after a few years of misguided attempts at being Call of Duty, the series seems to be, at last,returning to its roots, with a historically authentic setting, and an emphasis on emergent gameplay and dynamic destruction. And for the first time ever, it sounds like console players will get to join in on the fun of true Battlefield as well.
One of the hallmarks of that ‘true’ Battlefield gameplay is 64 player multiplayer- and DICE today confirmed that Battlefield 1 will indeed have 64 player multiplayer, allowing for the kind of massive, teamwork based, objective oriented multiplayer gameplay that made the series such a hit to begin with.
Even more excitingly, at least for PC players, is the fact that a server browser has been confirmed for online multiplayer- no more of the lag and latency, or the host advantage, that comes with peer to peer multiplayer gameplay.
Battlefield 1 will launch this October on PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
