Battlefield 1 Becomes "Biggest Launch" in DICE's History; New Stats Revealed

People collectively played 59 million hours in just over a week.

38 Comments

DICE has released an infographic for Battlefield 1 containing a series of big numbers from the World War I shooter's first 10 days spanning October 18-27.

Overall, Battlefield 1 became the "biggest launch in DICE history" based on the number of daily active players. DICE didn't disclose any specifics, though EA has said Battlefield 1 is pacing ahead of Battlefield 4 when it comes to the number of people who played during launch week.

No Caption Provided

Players collectively spent 59 million hours in the game, 9 million of which were in the new Operations mode. Additionally, 32 million Battlepacks were earned, while 1.6 million Behemoth vehicles were deployed. The Scout knife was the deadliest melee weapon, while horses proved to be the most prolific soldier-killer "vehicle," with 5.8 million kills.

There is no word on how many times a downed zeppelin turned into a tornado of death, however. Check out more stats in the infographic here on Battlefield's website.

EA has not said how many copies Battlefield 1 has sold, but one analyst believes the shooter could move as many as 16.5 million units.

In other news about Battlefield 1, DICE recently discussed some of the features and tweaks coming to the game, including hardcore servers, a new custom game, and rent-a-server functionality. Additionally, the game's Suez map is being updated to include more capture points for Conquest mode.

Haven't touched the single player yet because my nose has been so far deep in the multiplayer. My support class is rank 10 and am currently rank 5 on my assault class. I know am cheating myself by not playing the single player and I've promised myself i would but its by force of habit because I've ignored every fps single player since Doom3. Not because the others aren't good but because am a competitive player and single player just doesn't do it for me anymore no matter how awesome it is. I'm tring to break this habit.

I would love to see the win rates for each of the ops, it feels like some of the favor attack while others favor defense.

@howthegodzkill: They are set up as war stories so future DLC could add 1 or two of them easily because they are so short in length, so you can expect that ;)

No one cares about these random stats. Total number of copies sold or bust. Also, add more content. BF1 is lacking.

@moose-fitz: on the contrary, total sales numbers means zilch to the average user. information about how other people are playing and what they're spending their time doing, with some funny stuff sprinkled in, is nearly invaluable.

@moose-fitz: Your comment is an OPINION. I myself including many others find the content to be sufficient for the money paid. I love how some people want to pass their opinions as a fact. Always gives me a chuckle.
