EA has released information detailing Battlefield 1’s first expansion, titled They Shall Not Pass.
The expansion will include four brand new maps, the introduction of the French Army to multiplayer, a new game mode called Frontlines, and new weapons and vehicles.
The four new maps are: Verdun Heights, Fort Vaux, Soissons, and Rapture. Full details on the maps can be found on the official Battlefield website.
Frontlines will give Battlefield 1 players the chance to “Experience a mix of Conquest and Rush.” “Both teams fight for one flag at a time and when this objective is captured the action moves on to the next. Capture the enemy’s HQ control point and the game turns into a Rush-style section where telegraph posts need to be attacked or defended.”
As part of the They Shall Not Pass expansion, you will be able to pilot a Char 2C or a St. Chamond, two huge French tanks. You will also be able to “use the melee skills of the new Elite Class: the Trench Raider.” For more information on the expansion, see the Battlefield site.
Battlefield 1’s first expansion will be available for Premium Pass holders in March.
