Battlefield 1 DLC Reveal Coming Next Week, Watch A Teaser Now

DICE will announce more information about Battlefield 1‘s first expansion, They Shall Not Pass, very soon. The developer said on Twitter today that new details will be revealed next week.

A new teaser was also released, showing a club-wielding solider emerging from a blaze, standing in front of a French flag.

As announced previously, They Shall Not Pass is set during the Battle of Verdun, in France. According to DICE, around 1 million shells were fired in the opening parts of the battle alone, leading to forest fires, which is why you’ll see trees engulfed in flames in the DLC maps. A version of the Samogneux village, destroyed by war, will be the focus of one of the maps, while another will depict the battles that took place inside Fort Vaux.

A third map will feature a battlefield torn apart by artillery shells; according to DICE, around 40 million were fired during the entirety of the Battle of Verdun, “turning the earth into a shattered lunar landscape.” At least one of the maps will feature “underground fortresses,” DICE teased.

In addition to new maps (DICE hasn’t said exactly how many are in the add-on), They Shall Not Pass comes with more weapons and dog tags. No release date has been announced, but people who own the Battlefield 1 Premium Pass ($50) can play They Shall Not Pass and the other three upcoming expansions two weeks before everyone else can buy them.
