Battlefield 1, the latest entry to the famous shooter franchise from DICE was released in October last year, while last month, DICE announced that the game will be getting a Community Test Environment for the PC and Consoles.
The studio fulfilled its promised as recently, DICE opened the Battlefield 1 Community Test Environment sign-ups for the PC platform. CTE (also called as Public Test Server or PTS) plays a vital role in the multiplayer titles from Shooter and other categories as it allows the players to try out the updates and features before they officially gets released.
The Battlefield 1 Community Test Environment will allow some specific players to test the new update, content and report their experience, whether good or bad to the developers so they can finalize how to improve the update and release the update (or maybe not).
It’s a good sign when developers let players try out the changes and report any issues and bugs so that they correct it and then release a final patch without causing many problems. We hear some updates causing problems for most of the players and they decide to roll back to the previous version. With the availability of this Community Test Environment, we can expect more stability in the Battlefield 1.
According to DICE, the purpose of CTE is;
The CTE lets us share our development process with our players, get your valuable feedback earlier, and keep improving the Battlefield 1 experience. The earlier we can get player feedback and full 64 player servers testing our latest features – the better off we’re going to be.
Battlefield 1 is now available for PC, PS4 and Xbox One. The CTE will soon be available for both the consoles in the near future, while the first DLC is due sometime in March. Stay tuned for more updates!
