The comparison between Battlefield 1 before, and after the patch were captured by Arrogant_Amigo, which shows that the latest version looks worse than BF1 did before it was patched. The post-patch version of Battlefield 1 doesn't have tessellation on muddy terrain, and less terrain quality/decoration, reduced HBAO+, shadow resolution or shadow draw distance.

Arrogant_Amigo claims:

  • clearly lacks tessellation on muddy terrain path - see bottom left highlighted area
  • lacks previous (pre-patch) anisotropic filtering/textures - see far right highlight on rock formation textures
  • terrain quality/decoration lowered, notice missing foliage and plants - see top left highlight above the muddy path
  • HBAO/shadow resolution or shadow-draw distance lowered, notice cluster of plants - see middle highlight above weapon
