It’s December, which means, Battlefield 1 is closer to getting an update. Since the update is on our horizon TryGamers is taking an in-depth look at what we know so far about future Battlefield 1 update for, Xbox One, PS4 and PC.
The bad news is, Fall Battlefield update fixed major issues but, Battlefield 1 owners on all platforms proceed to report about a hand full of issues.
The good news is, Dice is preparing an update for December to fix those concerns. The company hasn’t announced an official changelog – we will keep you updated when it’s ready, but here’s what we so far:
Giant’s Shadow Map
Starting with a new map release we perceive to be true, “Giant’s Shadow Map” is an upcoming map being introduced into December Battlefield 1 update. Dice December update will highlight Giant’s Shadow map into Battlefield 1 as a complimentary map. The new map takes players into the Battle of the Selle near the Selle river in France where Germans fought mostly British forces.
Dice has not shared videos or screenshots of the map as of now (We’ll keep you updated), but we do have words and a useful video describing the map:
Prepare to take part in the Battle of the Selle in the cold autumn of 1918. Here, the fighting moves out of the trenches and into open country where a massive crashed airship casts its shadow onto the battlefield. The British forces have broken through the Hindenburg line and are now in pursuit towards an important railway center. Fierce infantry and tank engagements ensue on the open ground and river banks alongside the Cateu-Wassigny railway where an armored train can still turn the tide.
For those who have pre-ordered Battlefield 1, you’ll get access to Giant’s Shadow Map a week earlier.
TryGamers expects “Giant’s Shadow Map”, to be the biggest release in the patch. But, there’s more.
It’s not yet confirmed Spectator Mode will be introduced into the update, but there’s a good chance Spectator Mode will be playable for everyone.
Dice has said on Twitter:
The spectator mode will be available with the upcoming patch: the one after Fall Update. DICE is already working on it. No ETA yet #BF1
Dice is working on the Spectator Mode, which should be released alongside Decembers update. If not, since there’s not an ETA Spectator Mode arrival is expected in the next patch.
