Battlefield 1’s Great War is still raging a year after release on consoles and the PC. With new weapons, maps, and a fresh class, Turning Tides is almost here.
Yes, it’s been out for a while, but wow do I keep forgetting how great Battlefield 1 looks. Those visuals, even now, are stunners. And all-new by the way, as Turning Tides is set to deliver a bunch of new goodies for B1 multiplayer gamers. The 1915 British amphibious assault of Gallipoli is the centerpiece in this new pack, and will hit in two waves. That’s right, Turning Tides is a two-parter.
The first assault will carry the “new Infiltrator Elite Class, six weapons and two melee weapons added to your arsenal, and you’ll get to rule the waves with the L-Class Destroyer.” And the second? That will plop players into the “North Sea to tackle two other unique maps: Zeebrugge and Heligoland Blight, with the chance to charge into battle with the new Royal Marines and spawn on the C-Class Airship.”
All in all, that’s pretty meaty. As you might imagine though, that December 11th date is the one for Premium members. If you’re not a Battlefield 1 subscriber, then you’ll be waiting a bit longer to play. Just when that might be, we’re not sure yet, but we’ll keep you up to date.
EA also delivered an update on other content coming to the game, which you can find below.
- Battlefield 1 They Shall Not Pass and Battlefield 1 In the Name of the Tsar free trials will be available between November 22nd – December 4th and December 8th – December 10th. Players can log in to Battlefield 1 on these dates to fight with (or against) the French and Russian Armies and sample new maps, weapons, and vehicles.
- Frontlines Mode is coming to the Suez map on November 27th. Frontlines can be described as a mix of Conquest and Rush and has you fighting for chained control points in an intense tug-of-war.
- Fall of Empires Operation Campaign will be available for all Battlefield 1 owners between November 22nd and December 6th. Fall of Empires combines two Operations: Conquer Hell and Iron Walls. These are in turn inspired by two 1918 events: the battle of Vittorio Veneto and the Meuse-Argonne offensive on the Western Front.
- Black Friday Deals on Battlefield 1 will be available (for select regions and platforms) to give new players an opportunity to discover everything that Battlefield 1 Revolution and Battlefield 1 Premium Pass has to offer.
