New Battlefield 1 Custom Game Mode Announced, Makes Scouts Deadlier
The "Line of Sight" gametype debuts later this week.
A new Battlefield 1 custom game will arrive this week, developer DICE announced today. The game is called Line of Sight, and it's a spin on Rush where you can only play as the Medic or Scout classes.
A further twist is that Scouts have double bullet damage, making them even deadlier. If you're on the Medic side, which sees no extra perks, you'll need to use your health packs wisely to ensure you and your teammates stay alive. The gametype arrives this week, though a specific date was not announced.
This won't be Battlefield 1's first custom game, as one called Fog of War arrived earlier this month. This gametype saw extra levels of fog dispersed through the map, making it tougher to see.
DICE also reiterated today that Battlefield 1's first DLC map, Giant's Shadow, is coming out in December as a free download for all players. As announced previously, this map is set during the Battle of the Selle in France, in the fall of 1918. Its name comes from the fact that a huge crashed airship casts a shadow on the map.
Looking beyond Giant's Shadow, the first Battlefield 1 paid expansion, They Shall Not Pass, comes out in March 2017. Everyone who owns the $50 Battlefield 1 Premium Pass gets a two-week headstart on all DLC and receives other bonuses like server queue priority and extra Battlepacks.
