The PC version of Battlefield 1 will release with an uncapped frame-rate feature, DICE confirmed this week.
A common fear of PC users boasting powerful rigs is that their anticipated titles launch with capped frame-rates. In most cases this turns out to be 30 FPS, a controversial manner of ensuring parity between consoles and PC.
An uncapped frame-rate for Battlefield 1 confirms that users will be able to enjoy a smoother and fulfilling experience, as much as their systems are capable of handling.
As we approach the release of the game, developer DICE and publisher Electronic Arts have been unveiling all sorts of features to get us excited for. The new installment in the military-action series is coming with dedicated servers, support for multi-monitor setups, advanced visual options, significant customization for game modes, and more. We’re still assuming that DICE has more to reveal in the coming weeks.
Earlier today, the official Battlefield Facebook page shared a new trailer for the game. This one showcases some of the multiplayer maps that we’ll be playing next month at launch. It also provides a first look at the Amiens map. Between that and recognizable footage, marvel at the level of terrain details, explosions, armored presence, destruction, and pure mayhem.
The Battlefield series has always been known for its multiplayer over its single-player campaign. This time though, DICE has put in newfound focus in making the storyline a most memorable experience. Rather than follow a single character through the chapters, players will instead be filling roles of multiple soldiers. This will take you across locations to experience the World War era like nothing before.
Battlefield 1 is scheduled for launch later this month for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. Those with the Early Enlister editions or memberships to EA/Origin Access can begin playing the game a whole week earlier.
