Battlefield 1: password servers "very close", as DICE teases CTE

We may be getting a Community Test Environment (CTE) for Battlefield 1 soon, with the ability to password-lock servers being among the first items on the docket.


Battlefield 1 developer DICE has yet to officially announce Community Test Environment (CTE) for the game. Both Battlefield 4 and Hardline had their own, though they went live months after each game's respective release.

Battlefield 1 is still relatively fresh, but we may be closer to a CTE launch than we think. Ali Hassoon, a producer at DICE, recently answered some Twitter enquiries and may have inadvertently teased the launch of the CTE.

Hassoon was asked if the ability to use passwords with servers is coming anytime soon. He said that the feature is "very close to being final", but that the studio may test it in the CTE first.

Here's the tweet:

Perhaps the CTE will be going live alongside the upcoming They Shall Not Pass DLC? Or maybe a couple of weeks before to test it? Only time will tell.
