No one would fault DICE for putting all their energy into Battlefield V as it puts the finishing touches on the latest franchise entry. But, the folks behind Battlefield don’t rest on their older games until a new one is out the door. Hell, sometimes they keep supporting them beyond that like DICE LA did with Battlefield 4.
Today, DICE announced a livestream tomorrow detailing Battlefield 1’s Summer Update. The big news for Xbox One fans is 4K support for Xbox One X.
Join us from on #Twitch on Jul 31 for an exclusive livestream where we’ll discuss all the new game improvements in the #Battlefield 1 Summer Update including 4K support for Xbox One X and more. ➡️ https://t.co/KZHqGdlZ4C pic.twitter.com/mbcRQklDIo

Well, it looks like I’m about to fire up Battlefield 1 again. My Xbox One X has spoiled me. Anytime I’m looking for a game to play I toggle the ‘Xbox One X Enhanced’ first.
While a Battlefield 1 4K update is great, the first reply on Twitter summed up my feelings perfectly.
Please enhance Battlefield 4 for the one X as well pleasseeeeeee pic.twitter.com/9PIQw7TeQj

I would play the hell out of Battlefield 4 in 4K. I enjoyed my time with Battlefield 1 and the Battlefield V alpha, but damn do I miss flying helicopters in Battlefield 4. Hurry up and get back to modern Battlefield, DICE.
Battlefield V Xbox One X enhancements
While we wait to hear more details about Battlefield 1’s enhancements (besides 4K), the Xbox listing for Battlefield V highlights 4K Ultra HD, HDR10, and Variable Refresh Rate. After seeing what DICE did with Star Wars Battlefront 2, I can’t wait to fire up my Xbox One X with Battlefield 1 and Battlefield V.
As we get closer to Battlefield V’s October release, we’ll see a new build at Gamescom in August and an open beta in early September. DICE is already tweaking the game based on feedback from the closed alpha. A blog post earlier this month dives into the gameplay changes already made.
Battlefield V is coming to on October 19. On October 11, folks subscribed to EA Access, and Origin Access can start playing via the ‘Play First Trial.’
