Battlefield 1 mystery solved, spawning new mystery

A scattered crew of spies, intelligence analysts, undercover agents, code crackers, and commando squads have solved a Battlefield 1 [official site] easter egg which unlocks a shiny bonus dog tag - and opens up a further mystery.

Origin Lifting Sanction-Fuelled Block Against Myanmar

I get it: keeping up with news is bor-ing.

So…

Battlefield 1’s New Medic Class Will Revive & Retaliate

Battlefield 1's [official site] dramatic 64-player E3 outing last month looked fantastic, but, like most of the big budget games showcased at these kinds of events, at times felt a bit staged.
