First-person shooter video games are all the hype in recent times. While games like Call of Duty and Apex Legends have garnered a massive player base lately, games like Battlefield are popular among FPS enthusiasts.
On the other hand, if a recent rumor is to believe, EA’s iconic Battlefield 1 could end up being free to play next week. Recently, Tom Henderson, a reliable industry leaker, tweeted that the game might be released for free next week. Battlefield 1 was released by EA in 2016 and is the series’ 15th installment in the series.
Battlefield 1 has been nominated for various awards and is one of the best FPS games you can get your hands on. The immersive gameplay experience and the beautifully designed game does justice to the era the game is set in. Moreover, some might consider Battlefield 1 to be one of the most realistic games ever produced.
Considering Battlefield 1 is an old game, an intriguing question comes to players’ minds; is Battlefield 1 still active? Well, much of Battlefield’s multiplayer has gone dead. At the same time, Battlefield 1 still has some popularity among fans. While Battlefield 1 was a commercial success in its initial days, selling almost 15 million copies worldwide.
Talking about the gameplay, Battlefield 1 offered single-player campaigns and multiplayer modes set in World War 1 theme.
Would Battlefield 1 come back to life once it’s free?
Well, that’s a rather tricky question. But, I personally believe we could see some rumpus in the Battlefield 1 servers. Even more, considering “if” Battlefield 1 becomes free to play next week, the influx of new players could pivot the return of some of the older players to the game’s servers, making the game come back to life.
However, EA hasn’t made any official announcements if Battlefield 1 will become free to play or would it be a limited-time thing. Meanwhile, readers are advised to take this information with a grain of salt until anything concrete on the matter comes.
In recent news, the upcoming Battlefield 2042 will feature crossplay between PC and Consoles. However, the crossplay will only be supported in the next-gen consoles, PS5 and Xbox Series X/S.
