Battlefield 1 has had plenty to shout about in recent months with both They Shall Not Pass and In the Name of the Tsar bringing new maps, weapons, vehicles and more to the fight – expanding the Battlefield 1 experience. Now though it’s time to move things on once again and come December 11th the third expansion pack – Turning Tides – will be available in Battlefield 1.
Turning Tides looks to bring players to battle on land, at sea and in the air and will be the first expansion to be released in two waves. The first wave that arrives on December 11th will be available for Battlefield 1 Premium Pass owners only and will see the new Cape Helles and Achi Baba maps come into play.
As with previous expansion packs, Turning Tides will also bring a new Operation into the game which will be set across both new maps. In the latest Operation, players will be taking part in the 1915 British amphibious assault of the Gallipoli peninsula. Of course, that’s not all though and while you’re getting to get to grips with the new maps, there will also be some new weapons for players to use with six new firearms and two new melee weapons, not to mention an all new Infiltrator Elite Class that will help players to rip through the opposition.
The final addition arriving in the first wave is the new vehicle, the popular L-Class Destroyer, a limited quantity ship used by the British Royal Navy during World War II.
The second wave on the other hand will arrive in January 2018 and will send players directly into the North Sea with two unique maps, Zeebrugge and Heliholand Blight.
With the battle taken to the waters, this will also see the arrival of the Royal Marines as a playable army as well as the final new vehicle for the Turning Tides expansion, the C-Class (Coastal Class) Airship as used by the US Navy during World War I.
Whilst that is everything you can expect to find within the new Turning Tides expansion for Battlefield 1, it isn’t the only changes coming to the game, and from November 27th players will be able to enjoy the intense Frontlines Mode on the Suez map.
Meanwhile November 22nd to December 6th will see all Battlefield 1 owners gain acess to the Fall of Empires Operation Campaign, which will combine both the Conquer Hell and Iron Walls Operations, bringing a unique twist to the experience, with events inspired by the 1918 battle of Vittorio Veneto and the Meuse-Argonne offensive on the Western Front.
Of course, if you’ve yet to jump in with anything Battlefield 1 has provided outside of the base game, then your chance will also be coming to get in on the action with a free trial available between November 22nd and December 4th for They Shall Not Pass as well and December 4th to December 8th for In the Name of the Tsar.
