After showcasing it yesterday, today, DICE rolled out the next major update for Battlefield 1, The Winter Update, onto PS4, Xbox One, and PC. Notably, the update brings the return of ribbons from past Battlefield games, and a jump in class rank caps from 10 to 50. You can see all the changes, additions, and improvements via the patch notes.
You will now be able to collect Ribbons as you play. There are 20
different Ribbons to collect, and each time you get a Ribbon you also
receive a 300XP. The Ribbons are designed to promote good teamplay and
playing the objective. If you have suggestions for other Ribbons you’d
like us to add, we’re always listening! This is just the beginning.
MAJOR UPDATE: ELITE CODICES
It is now possible to unlock an Elite Codex for
eight of the available primary weapons in the game. All you need to do
is get 500 more kills per applicable weapon. Not only will you get a
shiny Elite Codex, but you will also be awarded 25,000 bonus XP. Not
bad when you’re chasing those new Class Ranks.
MAJOR UPDATE: CLASS MAX RANKS
The new max Class Rank will now be 50. At every 10
new Class Ranks you’ll receive a Battlepack, and when you hit 50, you
will be granted some extra nice Class flair in the kill card to taunt
your fallen foes. There will also be Dog Tags that you can unlock as
you progress towards max Class Rank 50.
MAJOR UPDATE: SERVERS
With the Winter Update we’re releasing some highly anticipated
rent-a-server features. RSP admins will now be able to kick players
from their server using the in-game UI, or swing a mighty ban hammer if
someone is misbehaving. RSP admins will now also have prioritized
access to their server.
On top of this, we’ve added the feature to vote for
the next map after a match is over. Players on the server will get two
options to vote for, and whichever alternative gets the most votes will
be the next map. The options will be randomly selected from the
server’s map rotation. This is done during the end of round screen, so
no extra time between rounds has been added.
