A Revolution Is Coming In Battlefield 1

By Ashley Woodcock, 5 months ago
Battlefield 1 players still enjoying their time with the game have got a lot to be excited about in the coming months as a Revolution is on its way. Premium options and more content is making its way to DICE's shooter.


If you don't own a Premium Pass for Battlefield 1, then you won't have access to some of the game's maps. The newly announced Premium Trials offers a way for players to try out select maps without the need to join a squad that includes a player who has a Premium Pass.

Premium Trials will be available to try on the same day the "Prise de Tahure" map releases, which is at some point this month. If you don't own a Premium Pass, you can check out the Premium Trial and gain access to Prise de Tahure, Nivelle Nights and four other maps included in the "They Shall Not Pass" DLC.

Before Gamescom kicks off on August 22nd, there will be another Premium Trials event, although the specific start and end dates for the first or second Premium Trials events have yet to be confirmed. September will see the third Premium Trials event and, by this time, those checking out the trials will be able to play on the previously released expansion pack maps.

If you've been taking advantage of Premium Friends, you can continue to do so up until Gamescom begins.


Announced last month, the "Name of the Tsar" DLC will come with six new maps, the Russian Army, new weapons, vehicles, and plenty more. The full DLC pack will release in September but DICE states that players can get an early taste of the cold-battling to come next month when the snow-filled map, Lupkow Pass, releases.


December will see the release of "Turning Tides", the game's third expansion pack that features the "epic clashes of the Zeebrugge Raid, the Gallipoli Offensive, and more". As well as taking part in naval battles, players will also take it to their opponents on land and in the skies on the new maps with an arsenal of new weapons. More details are currently still classified.

Screens

Don't forget that Battlefield 1 will be making its way into the EA Access Vault and you can get your hands on the upcoming DLC packs early by owning the Premium Pass.
