Battlefield 1 Rent a Server Details Revealed, Daily Livestreams Happening Starting Next Week

For hardcore Battlefield fans, renting servers where you can tweak game settings, map rotation and more has been a must when holding private matches, tournaments and more. Over on the official Battlefield site, DICE has revealed a few details regarding Battlefield 1’s Rent-a-Server program. Chief among the changes is that all rental servers will now be handled by EA directly (no more third-party companies).

Starting close after launch, you will be able to rent a server through the in-game store of Battlefield 1. In the past, servers were handled by third-party companies – now, EA is providing them directly. We think this will benefit you in several ways. First off, we will be able to 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. On a rented server, players will be able to customize gameplay aspects like server name, map rotation, game mode, various game play settings, and more. We might restrict number of game modes available at launch and gradually enable them based on feedback and other circumstances, but you can expect that we’ll keep adding customization options and UI design throughout 2016.

Additionally, DICE has also announced that starting on October 12 and running up to launch on October 21, fans can expect a two-hour livestream of Battlefield 1 from 1 p.m. PT (4 p.m. ET) to 3 p.m. PT (6 p.m. ET). Yep, that means 10 days of straight Battlefield 1 livestreams! You can check out the full schedule and watch the live footage here.

Finally, there’s a couple of new Battlefield 1 teasers that give us a quick look at some of happenings in the campaign.

On a personal note....

This rented private server news, is 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 game parts itself.  Being on EA servers... means nothing.

What do you guys think?

Thanks for this. If the Clan gets back together may be a good thing to do.
