A bunch of known issues have been fixed in the latest Battlefield 1 patch, replacing missing dog tags, solving connection problems and fixing crashes. You’ll probably still fly your plane straight into the dirt, though. Sorry. 

It’s a different conflict, but we have a list of the best WW2 games for you to read. 

As well as the issues mentioned above, the update should solve a button prompt problem with Xbox One controllers, clean up some graphical issues, and stop the game crashing upon exit for some players.
