Dropping tomorrow, to give those Season Pass snobs a head start, the latest Battlefield 1 patch is set to bring a number of changes to the game in addition to the new map. And, the very cool crossbow grenade launcher. One of the notable new additions is the introduction of a long overdue Spectator Mode. But, an overhauled one that will also allow the player to free-roam the map, apply various camera filters, and take a god's eye view of the battle. In addition to the usual watching your squad mates get ambushed.
Another notable change is the all-round shotgun nerf, that reduces the range and one-shot kill distance of the M97 Trench Gun, Model 10-A, and Sawed Off Shotgun buckshot variants.
Also included in the update is a new Custom Game option -- Standard Issue Rifles. Which, like the name suggests should provide players with a more historically accurate version of World War 1 trench warfare. In that not everyone was armed with machine gun prototypes.
The patch notes are pretty extensive, and you can check them out here
