Battlefield 1 is finally getting local servers

Finally the day has come for us in South Africa.


Fellow Battlefield players,

We are thrilled to announce that we adding online game server support for our dedicated communities in South Africa, the Middle East and Hong Kong.

On Tuesday, February 21st between 08:00 and 13:00 UTC we will be introducing servers in these three regions for the Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC. Once deployed, players in or close to these new regions will now enjoy online Multiplayer with lower latency than previously experienced.

The three new datacenters will be based in Johannesburg, Dubai, and Hong Kong, respectively, and will utilise the same type of high performance server hardware as the other regions running Battlefield 1 game servers.

We will keep monitoring latency levels and geographical coverage for the Battlefield franchise and are committed to delivering the best experience for all our players worldwide.


See you on the Battlefield.


Thank you,

Alexander “Striterax” Hassoon
