Battlefield 1 servers heading to SA early 2017


We’re sure many of you have been praying for the day this news would finally come through. Come 2017 you’ll finally have local servers for Battlefield 1 that might also assist with future DICE games. This was confirmed on the official Battlefield 1 forum. This is what DICE Live Producer, Alexander “Striterax” Hassoon, had to say:

Hi All,

I am very happy to announce that we will be deploying official DICE online game servers for the following regions in early 2017:

South Africa
Middle East
Hong Kong

These are but the first steps in our ongoing effort to keep supporting Battlefield 1 and our community.

Thank you very much for your feedback, we are listening.

There you have it. It’s time to get excited about Battlefield 1 all over again. We wish it arrived in time for the holidays, but beggars really can’t be choosers.
