DICE recently revealed a fresh commitment to provide Battlefield 1 with monthly content updates and balance tweaks, including rolling out additional maps that aren’t part of the planned Premium Pass content. You’ll still need a Premium Pass to play them sadly, however you will be getting a little more content for your $50.
The first of these is Nivelle Nights, which should be out next month. That’s now being by the newly announced Prise de Tahure, which will shortly be heading to Battlefield 1’s Community Test Environment (CTE). This map is set after the Nivelle Offensive featured in Nivelle Nights (BF1’s first night time map), and focuses on the French troops battling to retake the Butte-de-Tahure region. The map itself features trench networks winding through several small villages, promising to be a decent mix of close and long-range combat.
Battlefield 1’s next premium expansion, In the Name of the Tsar, should also be with us soon. It’s going to fully playable at EA Play 2017 on June 10th, with a late summer launch planned.
Lastly, DICE also outlined the upcoming May update. Playlists will be coming for the Operations mode, and there should also be a number of tweaks and further improvements to balance the game.
