We’re getting a new look at the new content coming to Battlefield 1 today and while the content is still some time away from release, there isn’t a better time to take a look at what’s to come.
The content is titled They Shall Not Pass, and will feature 4 brand new maps and will be adding the French army to the game. In addition, weère getting a new Elite Class, a new mode and Char 2C tank, St. Chamond, and the Siege Howitzer.
The maps are:
Verdun HeightsThe opening barrage of the Battle of Verdun created massive forest fires in which players will fight for domination. This is an uphill battle towards the massive fortresses of Verdun. A constant grinding struggle where the artillery never stops. Where the forge and “the Devil’s Anvil” continues to consume even the bravest combatants.
Fort VauxThe first big engagement inside a fort during World War 1 takes place in the dark underworld of Fort Vaux. Down in the maze of dark galleries and wet stone corridors, French and Germans fight ferociously with grenades, guns, bayonets, and flamethrowers. Watch your corners!
SoissonsTake part in one of the biggest tank assaults of World War 1. The French 10th Army moves to take back Soissons using their powerful Saint Chamond tanks. Planes, tanks, and infantry clash in the beautiful French countryside in the early hours of a hot summer day. Only the thunderstorm is louder than the war.
RuptureIn dire need to capture key bridges across the Aisne river, the French find themselves back into battlefields where poppies grow over a rusty wreck from previous tank battles. It might seem calm but this maze of steel beasts provides an excellent place for those who plan an ambush. As the sun sets over Fontenoy, the battle wakes up.
