Hardcore mode was added in the last patch for BF1. It's... weird.
I played it for a few rounds and it's hardcore alright. There are no friendly nametags unless you get your crosshair over the player, so you have to learn uniforms quick.
No minimap OR big map that you can open up.
There's no hitmarkers or kill feedback (when you kill someone it doesn't say Enemy Killed 100points or whatever) It doesn't even tell you if you teamkilled somebody.
Bullet damage is doubled. Interesting because it doesn't seem to apply to explosives and most vehicle weapons (don't quote me on that though). Still kind of unplayable though because the hardcore sniper shitshow from previous games is alive and well.
Overall I found the mode to be pretty disorienting. It was really hard to find your squad and stick with them. Anyone else try it out?
