The Monte Grappa map in Battlefield 1 is a divisive experience. Based on a bloody, treacherous set of battles from the first World War, it is a hard map to take and hold objectives on. And now the Battlefield 1 community is embroiled in its own fight about the “real” Monte Grappa.

An Easter egg from last year - which initially granted a dog tag - escalated to include weapons skins and secret codes. Recently, Easter egg hunters completed the last step, finding a hidden weapon.
Battlefield 1's developers are giving away its They Shall Not Pass expansion, originally released back in March of 2017, for all owners of the game on consoles and PC until May 14. I took this opportunity to go back and play the maps, and I still think they're some of the best ones released for the game.
Crashes. Empty server lists. Disconnections. We're about to enter the fourth week of serious issues with Battlefield 1's local servers, bad enough to make multiplayer unplayable, with very little in the way of fixes, compensation or communication from EA.

Battlefield 1 continues the franchise's tradition of launching in a somewhat patchy state, only to be bolstered through ongoing developer support. In the past 12 months, the game has added 22 maps and seven modes, along with millions of new players. Let's examine BF1's launch state, its evolution through updates, and the radical multiplayer tweaks that have been implemented in year one.
Battlefield 1's latest expansion In The Name Of The Tsar adds the Russian Civil War to the game's multiplayer with snow-swept maps and dangerous mounted cavalry.
