A new pricing list from EA reveals that console fans will be able to rent a Battlefield 1 server for significantly cheaper than their PC counterparts.
Just a week after revealing that players will be able to rent their own servers in Battlefield 1, Electronic Arts has announced the full price range for the service.Unfortunately for PC fans, it seems as though gamers who are looking to pick up Battlefield 1 on console will be paying significantly less for their server rental service.
The rent-a-server feature won't be available at launch but will instead appear in November. The full price list was posted on Battlefield's official forums, and can be found below:
Battlefield 1 Server Rental Pricing:
- 1 day: $2.99
- 7 days: $11.99
- 30 days: $42.99
- 90 days: $99.99
- 180 days: $149.99
PLAYSTATION 4 / XBOX ONE
The service will not only allow players to host their own servers, but the owner will also get the chance to determine game-specific factors such as ticket count, bullet damage, game modes, weapons, and maps. EA has also revealed that more options may eventually become available based upon feedback from the Battlefield 1 community.
One more thing that will not be available upon the service's launch is the much-requested kick/ban feature. At launch, there won't be any real actions that a server owner can take against troublesome or unwanted players, but according to EA, this will change some time after the rent-a-server feature is ready.
In other recent multiplayer news, fans have discovered two new game modes that will become available soon to all players. The upcoming online modes include a hardcore mode, as well as an intriguing "Fog of War" option which is sure to limit the vision for all soldiers when it launches.
Of course, multiplayer isn't the only feature to look forward to in Battlefield 1, as the game's War Stories campaign looks to give players an insight into the events of the Great War. One particularly beautiful scene will even see Battlefield fans taking control of a pigeon in order to get an emergency message to their allies back at base camp.
