After announcing Battlefield 1's rent-a-server program last week, EA has now shared more details about what players can expect in terms of pricing and functionality.

Starting off with pricing, renting a server for Battlefield 1 on PC will start at $3 for one day, with prices going up from there, including 7 days ($12), 30 days ($43), 90 days ($100), and 180 days ($150). Renting a server on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One is less expensive, with options for 1 day ($2), 7 days ($8), 30 days ($27), 90 days ($65), and 180 days ($100).

As stated previously, Battlefield 1's rent-a-server program--which EA is handling in-house this time--won't be available at launch, but will instead launch in November.

Battlefield 1 Server Rental Pricing:

PC

  • 1 day: $2.99
  • 7 days: $11.99
  • 30 days: $42.99
  • 90 days: $99.99
  • 180 days: $149.99

PLAYSTATION 4 / XBOX ONE

  • 1 day: $1.99
  • 7 days: $7.99
  • 30 days: $26.99
  • 90 days: $64.99
  • 180 days: $99.99

As for features and functionality, players will be able to determine things like ticket count, bullet damage, modes, weapons, and maps. There will not be a kick/ban feature at launch, though EA said in a forum post (via PC Gamer) that it understands this "one of the top-requested features." The developer added, "We hear you and are working on rolling that out after the launch of the [Rental Server Program]."

"We might restrict number of game modes available at launch and gradually enable them based on feedback and other circumstances, but you can expect that we’ll keep adding customization options and UI design throughout 2016 and beyond," EA explained.

Battlefield 1's official release date is tomorrow, October 21, though many people are already playing it through the Play First Trial and Early Enlister Edition.
