Highlighting what’s coming soon to Battlefield 1, DICE announced today that a new map, Prise de Tahure, will hit the CTE (Community Test Environment) soon:

Set in the autumn after the Nivelle Offensive, Prise de Tahure sees French troops desperately holding on to re-captured heights in the Butte-de-Tahure region. The frontline trench networks cut right through several villages facing obliteration from the constant skirmishing between German stormtroopers and French raiders. This is a war of attrition. Adaptability and tactics are the means to wear your adversary down.

Also coming soon is the May Update, which brings further improvements to Battlefield 1. “Fans of Operations will be extra pleased by this update; expect playlists for the mode and easier access to get quickly into the action,” they said.

Then, in June, the Nivelle Nights map will be released for Premium Pass owners, and EA will offer “the first taste of the second Battlefield 1 expansion,” In the Name of the Tsar, at EA Play 2017. In the Name of the Tsar is scheduled for a late summer release.
