Electronic Arts and DICE have shared new details of ‘They Shall Not Pass’, the first expansion for ‘Battlefield 1’, which will arrive next March, introducing four new maps, new weapons and the possibility of playing with the French army, among other things.
Four new maps
The initial attack of the Battle of Verdun ignited forest fires in which players fight for supremacy. It is a battle uphill towards the gigantic fortresses of Verdun. A constant struggle where the artillery never rests, where the forge and the “Devil’s Anvil” consume even the bravest of the soldiers.
Fort de Vaux:
The first major confrontation inside a fort during World War I took place in the dark underworld of Fort de Vaux. Frenchmen and Germans face all their rage with grenades, pistols, bayonets and flamethrowers in the maze of dark galleries and dank stone walkways. Do not let your guard down!
Participate in one of the biggest assaults with tanks of the First World War. The 10th of the French army acts to recover Soissons with its powerful Saint Chamond tanks. Planes, tanks and infantry face off the beautiful French countryside in the early hours of a hot summer day.
The French, faced with the pressing need to conquer the key bridges of the river Aisne, return to battlefields where poppies grow among scrap tanks from previous battles. Do not be fooled by its apparent tranquility, this labyrinth of steel beasts provides an excellent stage for ambush planning.
In addition to these four maps, ‘They Shall Not Pass’ will give us the possibility to play like the French army, with its characteristic blue uniform; The new game mode “The Front”, where the teams will compete for the conquest of different flags; The Char 2C tank, a new and epic colossus of steel inspired by the true French tank; The Saint Chamond armored tank, the heaviest allied armored war tank; The new elite class “Trench Raider”; And the new fixed weapon, siege howitzer.
At the end of this news you will find a good handful of new images of ‘They Shall Not Pass’.
‘They Shall Not Pass’ will be available first for holders of the ‘Battlefield 1’ Premum Pass (March 2017), which goes on sale for the remaining players at a later date.
