Been waiting and wondering whether there will ever be a hardcore mode in Battlefield 1? Good news: it is on its way. BF1 Developer and Producer Ali Hassoon just stated on Twitter that the mode is “coming sooner than you think!”
@lkasprzak stay tuned! Coming sooner than you think!

In hardcore mode, the HUD will be removed and friendly fire will be enabled, allowing for a more realistic, immersive experience. This is something gamers have been clamoring for since the alpha tests—so thank you, DICE!
