Battlefield 4 has had hard to solve online connectivity issues, that resulted in the game being almost unplayable in its multiplayer component for a long while. Anyway, it seems that, after Star Wars Battlefront had a smooth launch last year, DICE is working even harder to prevent such things from happening all over again.
Therefore, Battlefield 1 is supporting a 60Hz default tick rate on all platforms. Let us explain what tick rate is. Tick rate is the frequency with which the server updates the game state. Basically, the higher the tick rate, the smoother the online experience. This parameter is measured in Hertz and it is a different one from the more common frame rate definition.
The news came from producer David Sirland’s comments on Reddit, where he had a chat with users willing to have more details about Battlefield 1.
More details will surely come along the way for Battlefield 1’s release, slated for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on October 21. DLC will come first for Xbox One and among those, we will find one completely dedicated to the French army.
