Battlefield 1 Deploys First Post-Launch Patch

Battlefield 1 [official site] has received its first patch since the customary launch update which arrived alongside the game on Friday. If you’ve been playing over the weekend you may have noticed a few problems, and this patch does fix some of ’em, including incorrect class ranks. It should wing its way to you via the usual Origin update-o-way. Patch notes are over here but the forums have been throwing a hissy fit over who is and isn’t allowed to access that so do read on.

Voila, your patch notes:

  • Fix for one common and one uncommon client crash.

Those are some patch notes right there all right. If Brendy were here – he who told us Wot He Thinks BF1 – I’m sure he’d have some more insight. Me? Ah, yes, I certainly can see why you might want those crashes fixed. Tidy up those glitches too. Yes, graphical glitches are a problem in war all right – I’m sure Wilfred Owen wrote poems about ’em? And weren’t ‘End of Round’ problems the driving force behind Siegfried Sassoon’s anti-war protest? Yes, yes.
