DICE also took some time to thank the millions of users who played the Open Beta on PC, PS4 and Xbox One earlier this Summer. Over 13 million players logged in and tried the game out before its retail release and player feedback have lead to some major changes for Battlefield 1’s conquest mode.

Here is what DICE’s Lead World Designer Daniel Berlin had to say about the changes coming to Battlefied 1’s conquest mode prior to release:

“We’re going to be making changes to the Conquest game mode ticket system for launch. The next time you play the game, capturing the objectives AND getting kills will both contribute towards the final score of a Conquest match. You have spoken, we have listened!” That is why we’re going to be making changes to the Conquest game mode ticket system for launch. The next time you play the game, capturing the objectives AND getting kills will both contribute towards the final score of a Conquest match. You have spoken, we have listened!” 

Changes are also coming to the light tank, which DICE feels was a bit too powerful in the open beta and horses which also could a bit of balancing considering they could take rockets directly to the face.

Here’s a bit about what’s coming in terms of vehicle balancing:

“We’re also looking into balancing other elements, including the weapons and vehicles. The Light Tank, which is a bit too effective in the Open Beta, will definitely receive some work, and we agree that Horses can take a few too many rounds at the moment. ”
