Battlefield 1 October Release Showed Server Errors, Graphical Downgrades and More
Battlefield 1 has received rave reviews upon its release. However, that accomplishment has been marred by recent complaints regarding the game’s servers. Can EA Dice resolve this before fans start leaving?
After months of hype and teases, Battlefield 1 was finally released in October. As with any newly rolled-out game, it encountered its fair share of problems. Pretty soon, gamers were complaining of graphical downgrades and server problems.
The latter complaint seems to be what gamers are really stressing over. According to Express, a multitude of players are having trouble accessing the game’s servers. While EA remained mum, Microsoft more or less confirmed there were problems.
The company also said that aside from log-in problems, Xbox One players will also encounter problems accessing social services like avatar editing, cloud storage, finding friends, Game DVR, in-game matchmaking, leaderboards and pictures. It should be pointed out though Battlefield 1 was not on the list of games that Xbox Live members were having problems with. But based on the various comments posted by players online, it seems the game is unavailable for Xbox One owners in North America.
Battlefield 1: Has The Problem Been Solved?
The problem might even be getting out of hand as there have been reports of gamers demanding refunds. However, the developers are saying something different. According to them, the problems plaguing Battlefield 1 have already been resolved.
Despite that, EA Dice producers have promised that they will look into the complaints. Hopefully, the company will be able to find a solution to the server problem. It would be a shame if the game loses players just because of it, especially since this installment of the Battlefield series has been described as being a massive improvement over Battlefield 4 and Battlefield: Hardline.
The first-person shooter game has been receiving good reviews over its singular World War 1 theme, multiplayer modes, single-player campaign, visuals and sounds. Gamers should be more patient though and give EA time to tweak and enhance Battlefield 1.
