Battlefield 1‘s Spring Update only just came out, but developer DICE is already looking forward toward summer and the new content the coming months will bring.
The game’s Community Test Environment will soon see the shooter’s new Prise de Tahure multiplayer map, before it launches in the full game for everyone else. The map takes place in Autumn during the Nivelle Offensive, and its layout involves a network of trenches that weave through several French villages under heavy attack.
Before Prise de Tahure lands, Premium Pass holders will get their hands on the game’s other upcoming multiplayer map, Nivelle Nights, dropping for free in June. Both of these maps will presumably go live for all players sometime after their initial releases—just as the Giant’s Shadow map did—but dates for the non-Premium releases are not yet available.
These two arenas are not even the end of it, as the game’s In the Name of the Tsar expansion is also coming later this summer. As with all Battlefield DLC, the expansion will include four new maps, as well as a host of new weapons, vehicles, and other bonuses. Fans can expect a first look at In the Name of the Tsar during the EA Play Showcase, which runs from June 10th to the 12th, adjacent to this year’s E3.
Even if players aren’t able to get their hands on the DLC maps themselves, the game’s upcoming Premium Friends feature offers a way for Premium members to share the content with friends that wouldn’t otherwise have access. The feature’s latest test just wrapped up, but fans should expect more details on the feature’s full release soon.
Before all of this goes down, players will be getting Battlefield 1‘s May update around the end of this month. The majority of changes coming in the update can be check out in the patch notes for the preceding CTE update.
