Battlefield 1 has received a new update today, bringing a series of bug fixes, tweaks, adjustments, and a new feature called the Scrap Exchange, which allows players to exchange their Scraps for Battlepack items. At the same time, Premium Pass owners can now enjoy the “They Shall Not Pass” DLC as a 2-week early access treat.

The Battlefield 1 They Shall Not Pass update is a required download for all Battlefield 1 players. Thanks to this update, players who don’t yet own the expansion will be able to watch Battlefield 1 They Shall Not Pass matches through Spectator Mode.

Unfortunately, the Battlefield 1 They Shall Not Pass Update also brings issues of its own, as players report.

Battlefield 1 They Shall Not Pass Update bugs

Why in new DLC Shall not Pass at my i5 6600k 970 gtx 4gb I have bad perfomance and at new maps I have drops FPS to 30 or lower? […] I bought this game for 100 dollars and I have an early access but I cannot playing because all time have drops fps!! Fix it!!

Has anyone else had this broken TAA after the patch/dlc? I run 980 SLI and game has always ran smooth and still does maxed out at 120% with TAA, but after latest patch the TAA is shimmering and blurry.
Turning to FXAA HIGH removes the issue, but I would like to use TAA. Anyone able to help? Thanks.

Out of the two games I played on the new DLC thrice I got melee kill animations cancelled and got killed by one hit when I had 100 hp. When I literally saw the bayonet/ knife enter the enemy’s body they just swing back like it’s nothing and kill me. Once I might have overlooked as bad luck, but thrice???

Game icon appears in task manager and immediatly disappears.

having multiplayer problems since the update. keeps hanging at joining game if joining direct to a server in server browser and if joining a casual game says no suitable games found. tihs is annoying. please fix.
