Battlefield 1 is yet another title to get a major update for the holiday season. Yesterday, EA DICE kicked off their big Battlefield 1 holiday event with a new game mode and plenty of shiny new features that we can all look forward to. This holiday event will be running until Thursday of next week, December 29th, with great modes, new customizations, and unique collectibles for players to unlock every single day.
The first new feature to go live is a custom game mode called “Blind Delivery”. It offers a unique take on the game’s War Pigeons mode, where the minimap is disabled and the player is restricted to using only explosives and handguns.
December 22nd, leading up to the 29th, the “Holiday Truce” Dog Tag will be awarded to all players (one per account.)” The only thing players must do to access this is make sure they are logged into Battlefield 1, wherein EA promises “the iconic Dog Tag will be yours”. On the 22nd, EA is also introducing new vehicle skins to Battlepacks, which include the “Distinguished “SchnucK” or the Legendary “Desert Gold.” The contents of the Battlepack trunks include different skins and weapons.
The last gift of EA’s big holiday update is for any player who logs into their Battlefield 1 account between the 23rd and the end of the event. While the holiday event is still live, these players will receive a free (yes, free) Battlepack. It gets better. Any Premium Pass owners who login during this period will receive “two Superior Backpacks”.
With this handful of great features for the next week, this is not a holiday event that Battlefield 1 players want to miss. Check out The Nerd Stash’s review of Battlefield 1 here, and stay tuned for more news.
