Battlefield 1 is one of the most anticipated games of the year and, after the success of the open beta, we can’t wait to start waging war against our friends. If you’re excited for the game then you’ll want to check out these new details released regarding the game’s free map called “Giant’s Shadow”.
As the Battlefield 1 website explains, the map will be released in December for free via an update. The Giant’s Shadow map is based on the Battle of the Selle which took place in the Autumn of 1918. The battle is notable for the fact that a massive airship crashed on the field and cast a giant shadow as it fell.
The map’s description reads: “Prepare to take part in the Battle of the Selle in the cold autumn of 1918. Here, the fighting moves out of the trenches and into open country where a massive crashed airship casts its shadow onto the battlefield. The British forces have broken through the Hindenburg line and are now in pursuit towards an important railway center. Fierce infantry and tank engagements ensue on the open ground and river banks alongside the Cateu-Wassigny railway where an armored train can still turn the tide.”
Six maps have been announced for the game so far but more are set to be revealed as the game’s release date grows closer. An open beta for Battlefield 1 finished last week and was a huge success with over 13 million players.
Battlefield 1 is set to be released on October 1 for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
