Battlefield 1‘s release is nigh upon us, and there’s been plenty of discourse back and forth across the board about which multiplayer modes and maps will ship with the game’s launch. In a rather self explanatory tweet, the official Battlefield twitter account posted links to all of the maps and modes that will ship with the game, along with one word: “Boom.”
Six multiplayer modes will ship at launch, and the game’s website suggests that there will be others releasing down the line, possibly with the Season Pass.
Nine maps will release, with others coming, again, most likely with the Season Pass.
There is one map that will release for free for everyone this December, Giant’s Shadow.
Prepare to take part in the Battle of the Selle in the cold autumn of 1918. Here, the fighting moves out of the trenches and into open country where a massive crashed airship casts its shadow onto the battlefield. The British forces have broken through the Hindenburg line and are now in pursuit towards an important railway center. 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 coming to Battlefield 1 as part of a free update in December.
Battlefield 1 will release on October 21, 2016.
