The first expansion for Battlefield 1 ,They Shall Not Pass, will be released in March, featuring all-new maps, new weapons, and the new playable French Army faction.
The four new maps will be: Verdun Heights, Fort Vaux, Soissons, and Rupture, and will take place on a range of terrain and features, such as underground forts, decrepit tanks, towns under fire and forests ablaze. There will also be a new game mode called Frontline, offering a mix of Conquest and Rush where you fight for control points in a tug-of-war. You’ll also be able to take control of the French Char 2C tank, otherwise known as the Steel Behemoth, and the St. Chamond (assault tank gun), alongside the French army.
There’s a new elite class too, the Trench Raider, who uses a raider club and grenade arsenal, and a new stationary weapon known as the Siege Howitzer which acts like a mortar.
The expansion hits digital shelves in March.
