I've been too busy playing Battlefield 1 on my PC to write much about it, but EA DICE have released the v1.02 patch for the game, which includes a bunch of UI-related fixes, as well as some issues with the War Story objectives, and more.
The new v1.02 update fixes various graphical issues and artifacts, with temporal anti-aliasing now the default AA method used on the Medium graphics preset. We've recently tested Battlefield 1 on the AMD Radeon RX 480 and NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 to find that the RX 480 is 30% faster than the GTX 1060 at 1080p with DX12 enabled, check it out here.
