A press release has revealed that the next Battlefield 1 expansion will be releasing soon and is set to release in two waves.
Two new maps are releasing; Cape Helles and Achi Baba. A new Operation, set on these two maps, will see players take part in the 1915 British assault of the Gallipoli peninsula. The first wave will also see a new Infiltrator Elite Class, six weapons and two melee weapons. Players will also get to “rule the waves” with the L-Class Destroyer.
The second wave, which is set to release in January 2018, gives players two new maps set in the North Sea; Zeebrugge and Heligoland Blight. Players will also get the chance to battle alongside the Royal Marines and will also get access to the C-Class Airship.
The press release also shed some light on future updates for Battlefield 1:
- Battlefield 1 They Shall Not Pass and Battlefield 1 In the Name of the Tsar free trials will be available between November 22nd – December 4th and December 8th – December 10th. Players can log in to Battlefield 1 on these dates to fight with (or against) the French and Russian Armies and sample new maps, weapons, and vehicles.
- Frontlines Mode is coming to the Suez map on November 27th. Frontlines can be described as a mix of Conquest and Rush and has you fighting for chained control points in an intense tug-of-war.
- Fall of Empires Operation Campaign will be available for all Battlefield 1 owners between November 22nd and December 6th. Fall of Empires combines two Operations: Conquer Hell and Iron Walls. These are in turn inspired by two 1918 events: the battle of Vittorio Veneto and the Meuse-Argonne offensive on the Western Front.
- Black Friday Deals on Battlefield 1 will be available (for select regions and platforms) to give new players an opportunity to discover everything that Battlefield 1 Revolution and Battlefield 1 Premium Pass has to offer.
Turning Tides will release on December 11th for Premium Pass owners, a whole two weeks before those without the pass will get access to the expansion. Will you be grabbing this expansion? Or are you already a Premium Pass owner? Maybe you will take advantage of the Black Friday deals and take this chance to grab the game? Let us know in the comments below, or tweet us @games_bulletin!
