Stable Launch & Monthly Updates
Battlefield games have a ton of moving parts and that has led to major issues. Battlefield 4 and Battlefield 1 had their fair share of problems at launch and we expect DICE to have to work out some kinks when Battlefield 2018 arrives. That said, our hope is that Battlefield 2018 is more stable than the previous two entries in the series.
For one, we'd love to see EA extend the annual Battlefield beta and give Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and Windows PC users a few more days to stress test the game. The Battlefield 1 beta arrived late and lasted only a few days.
Battlefield 2018 will be playable for the first time at EA Play 2018 in June and we expect a public beta to go live weeks later. The Battlefield 1 beta went live in August.
We'd also like to see monthly support start sooner with this year's Battlefield game. It took several months for DICE to realize its seasonal patches were a bad idea before it decided to release a new patch for all three platforms every month.
Battlefield 1 isn't perfect, but monthly patches have delivered a steady flow of bug fixes, enhancements, and tweaks and the game is better off for it.
