5 Things to Know About the June 2018 Battlefield 1 Update

5 Things to Know About the June 2018 Battlefield 1 Update is a post by Adam Mills from Gotta Be Mobile.

DICE is preparing a rather substantial Battlefield 1 update for June 2018. We don’t have a full change log just yet, but this month’s Shock Operations update will deliver a brand new game mode to try ahead of the highly anticipated Battlefield 5 release this coming fall.

While all eyes are currently on Battlefield 5, and rightfully so, those still playing DICE’s previous installment are in for a treat this month.

DICE isn’t planning to release any more Battlefield 1 DLC, but the developer is cooking up something special as its focus starts to shift to the next entry in the series.

The June 2018 Battlefield 1 update, also known as the Shock Operations update, was confirmed all the way back in April and it’s on track for a release sometime later this month.

In this guide we’ll take you through everything we know, and think we know, about what could very well be the last major update for Battlefield 1.

June Battlefield 1 Release Date

The Shock Operations update is still planned for June, we know that for sure. That said, EA DICE still hasn’t provided a specific release date for the patch.

At this point, we expect Battlefield 5 to dominate the headlines for a few days while the company showcases the new game during its EA Play 2018 event. EA Play kicks off on June 9th and features a playable demo of Battlefield 5’s multiplayer mode.

We could see the Battlefield 1 update drop during EA Play 2018, but there’s also a good chance the company uses this time to promote Battlefield 5 and other upcoming titles with a release coming later in the month once things have died down.

June Battlefield 1 Release Time

We don’t have a specific release date to share just yet, but we can tell you what to expect from the June update’s release time for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and Windows PC.

EA typically confirms an update’s release the day before it starts rolling out and those announcements typically come with a specific release time.

The company’s used a very specific release pattern for Battlefield 1 updates so you can expect the June release time to include server downtime and look something like this:

  • PC – Multiplayer offline for 1h starting at 0800 UTC / 1AM PDT
  • PS4 – Multiplayer offline for 1h starting at 0900 UTC / 2AM PDT.
  • Xbox One – Multiplayer offline for 1h starting at 1000 UTC / 3AM PDT.

You can also expect a fairly sizable download. Most Battlefield 1 updates are 1+GB for all three platforms and given what’s on board this patch, we’re expecting a large file.

If your hard drive is close to capacity, now would be a good time to start cleaning it up.

Shock Operations

The biggest addition coming in the June patch is a new game mode called Shock Operations. Shock Operations is an offshoot of Battlefield 1’s popular Operations game mode.

Shock Operations mode supports 40 players and sees attackers and defenders battling over sectors across one map instead of multiple maps.

This should make it the ideal choice for those that want to play Operations, but don’t have the time to commit to a full Operation.

Shock Operations will be available on five of the game’s maps including Giant’s Shadow, Prise de Tahure, Lupkow Pass, Zeebrugge, and River Somme.

Most of these maps come from Battlefield 1’s DLC expansions, but base game owners will be able to access them while playing Shock Operations.

If you want access to these maps across all of Battlefield 1’s game modes you will need to purchase the Premium Pass, buy a DLC a la carte, or wait for a free Premium Trial.

DICE’s been testing Shock Operations in the Battlefield 1 CTE, but it’s unclear if the game mode will return to public testing. With a release getting closer, and with Battlefield 5 en route, we might not see it before its released to the general public.

What Else to Expect

Shock Operations will likely be the meat of this month’s patch, but you can also expect the developer to include fixes for lingering bugs and tweaks to gameplay.

DICE is still tracking, and fixes, numerous Battlefield 1 problems and you can get a feel for its progress over on the Battlefield Bug Tracker.

What’s Next

With Battlefield 5 on the horizon, it should come as no surprise to learn that the June patch will be the last of DICE’s monthly updates for Battlefield 1.

At this point it’s unclear what this means for Battlefield 1 moving forward. We do expect support for Battlefield 1 to continue, but you can expect updates to be far more sporadic as the company shifts its resources to Battlefield 5.
