Battlefield 1 fans discover a tease of two new multiplayer modes coming to the DICE and Electronic Arts first-person shooter, with one being a Hardcore mode.
Although the majority of Battlefield 1‘s maps and game modes have been revealed well ahead of tomorrow’s official launch for the title, it seems as if the developers at DICE and Electronic Arts have at least two more multiplayer modes in mind. Thanks to the attentiveness of several fans of the forthcoming Battlefield 1, the release’s server browser has divulged the addition of two game modes dubbed Fog of War and Hardcore.
Those who have been taking part in Battlefield 1‘s EA and Origin Access may have noticed that there is a page in the title dedicated to custom games under multiplayer. Right up until the developer’s release of the title’s Early Enlister Edition, the page in question didn’t have anything posted, but now that the game has become available in Australia and New Zealand, it has been updated with the tease of both the Hardcore and Fog of War modes.
As seen in the screenshot below taken by the Reddit user known as FOGofGAMING, it shows the two aforementioned Battlefield 1 game modes a “coming soon.” However, the developers at EA DICE haven’t officially discussed either of them in the press, nor does the listing give any details about the forthcoming modes beyond their potentiality of being available sometime in the future.
For gamers unfamiliar with the Battlefield franchise, the Hardcore mode has been a fan-favorite for quite some time, as it makes the game extra difficult and realistic by removing the HUD, reducing health, enabling friendly fire, and much more. The details for Fog of War, on the other hand, are — similar to the name itself — much more nebulous.
Nevertheless, even though Battlefield 1‘s Fog of War mode lacks an official description, it doesn’t mean that one can’t speculate. Considering the fact that the game has a wide range of dynamic weather available across all of the title’s multiplayer maps, it’s a safe assumption to make that Fog of War simply obscures players’ vision, with fog being present for the entirety of a match instead of occasionally coming to fruition.
Taking all of this into consideration, with DICE and Electronic Arts teasing both the Hardcore and Fog of War modes for Battlefield 1, fans will certainly be looking forward to trying them out whenever they become available. Not to mention, with the title having received generally favorable reviews thus far, the addition of these two new modes ought to increase both fans’ and critics’ enjoyment of Battlefield 1 even more so in the future.
Battlefield 1 is set to launch on October 21, 2016 for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
