DICE launched a new custom game variant in Battlefield 1 today that puts scouts on the offensive.

The new game mode is called Line of Sight, and forces would-be snipers out of their comfort zone. The Rush-based variant limits players down to just two classes: scouts and medics. Scouts enjoy double bullet damage, which should turn most of the rifles the class uses into one-hit-kill weapons. As a result, medics better plan on packing their syringes if they want to keep their team up and running (towards the next objective).

DICE also reaffirmed that Battlefield 1's free Giant's Shadow map is on schedule for a December release, and that the first paid expansion will be hitting in March of next year. For more on the game, read Bertz' review, and get educated with his Idiot's Guide To Battlefield 1.

Our Take
I've been enjoying Battlefield 1's large-scale multiplayer battles, and this kind of variety is a good incentive to keep coming back. Shameless plug: If you're looking for some sweet custom emblems to taunt your opponents with, check out my column from earlier in the month.
