Yes, it was announced a few weeks ago and now Battlefield 1 is available for free with EA Access on the Xbox One.
We loved it here at Tix, with Rich scoring it a whopping 9.5/10 and saying “Battlefield 1 is an incredible triumph, bringing the events of World War I to life without shying away from the tragedy of all those lives lost during the conflict. It’s bleak, beautiful, harrowing and thoughtful, and remarkably it’s still entertaining.”
At the EA Play conference as part of E3, EA have announced a new expansion that is coming to Battlefield 1, “In the Name of the Tsar”. This expansion includes six new maps as well as new vehicles, a new mode, and 11 new weapons. You’ll play as the Russian Army, including the Women’s Battalion of Death. The release date is expected for September 2017.
There will also be 2 new maps coming – Nivelle Nights in June, and Prise de Tahure in July, both of which feature nighttime maps.
Also coming to Battlefield will be a new competitive experience, with more details coming at Gamescom later this year.
