The first Battlefield 1 expansion has a new mode, maps, and the French army

They Shall Not Pass

We’re more than a month out from the first Battlefield 1 expansion, but DICE has begun showing the new maps, mode, and weaponry of They Shall Not Pass. As I said the last time I touched on this stuff, by the time the pack is out in March, I’m liable to cave and get the whole season pass. I can’t be helped.

First off, They Shall Not Pass is adding the French army, which, yeah, that’s only now happening post-release. There are four maps — Verdun Heights, Fort Vaux, Soissons, and Rupture — and another Elite Class, the club-swinging, grenade-tossing Trench Raider. The new mode, Frontlines, sounds particularly appealing. It’s a tug-of-war battle over control points that ends in a Rush-style battle.

Capping off the expansion are the Char 2C tank, the Saint-Chamond tank, and the Siege Howitzer. All told, this is about what I’d expect to see. You in? Or are you preoccupied with other games now?
