EA announce massive new Battlefield 1 expansion, first details revealed

There’s a big expansion on the way for Battlefield 1, actually there’s four, and EA has revealed some information about them, namely the first one coming this March, called They Shall Not Pass. Here’s what you can expect…

You’ll be playing as a member of the French Army in They Shall Not Pass.

There’s going to be four new maps to explore and dominate, and they’re called Verdun Heights, Rupture, Soissons, and Fort de Vaux. There’s also going to be a new game mode called Frontlines which is like a combination of Rush and Conquest.

There’s going to be some new vehicles, including a new tank called the Char 2C. Also, a new elite class called the Trench Raider. That’s what we know so far, but expect a few surprises as well. For example, there might be some zombie content coming up.

There aren’t many specific details about the other 3 expansions yet, nor any timeframe on when we can expect them, but here’s what we’ve got:

  • Battlefield 1: In the Name of the Tsar: Enter the biggest front of WW1 with the Russian Army. Ride in Galicia with the legendary Hussars during the Brusilov offensive. Partake in the skirmishes of the Albion assault in a freezing archipelago and fight in the snow covered ravines of the treacherous Lupkow Pass.
  • Battlefield 1: Turning Tides: Participate in the amphibious warfare of WW1. Embark with the new destroyer into intense tactical naval clashes. Master the coastal class airship in the fierce interplay between land, air and sea. Engage in the daredevil Zeebrugge raid and storm the beaches in the first days of the Gallipoli offensive.
  • Battlefield 1: Apocalypse: Go over the top in the most infamous battles of WW1. Conquer bitterly contested ground with brutal tools and unique weapons born out of desperation and deadlock. Never before have the nightmarish horrors of the Great War been closer as you descend into hell. Prepare to enter the Apocalypse.
