EA has released a new Battlefield 1 trailer that shows off the upcoming free Giant’s Shadow map and also teases a new weapon.

The map is set during the Battle of the Selle in the fall of 1918. “The British forces have broken through the Hindenburg line and are now in pursuit towards an important railway center,” the description reads. “Fierce infantry and tank engagements ensue on the open ground and river banks alongside the Cateu-Wassigny railway where an armored train can still turn the tide.”

Giant’s Shadow will be added to the game via a free update on December 20th, but Premium Pass holders will get early access to the map starting December 13th.

The trailer also confirms the addition of a new grenade-launching crossbow, which was leaked earlier this week via lead weapon artist Peter Olofsson Hermanrud’s ArtStation profile. Presumably the weapon will be added alongside the map.

Battlefield 1 is available now on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC.
