EA has announced today that the Battlefield 1 Turning Tides expansion pack, the third of its kind for the game, will be releasing in two waves, the first of which is set to launch on December 11 for Battlefield 1 Premium Pass owners.
According to EA, the first wave of Turing Tides will give players access to two new maps, including Cape Helles and Achi Baba. In a new Operation set on those maps, players will be able to take part in the 1915 British amphibious assault on the Gallipoli peninsula. There will also be a new Infiltrator Elite Class, six weapons, and two melee weapons coming to players who own the expansion.
The second wave, which is set to launch in January 2018, will throw players into the North Sea to tackle two other maps: Zeebrugge and Heligoland Blight. The second wave will also give players the chance to jump into battle with the Royal Marines and spawn on the C-Class Airship. EA has also detailed some of their future content coming to the game, which you can find below:
- Battlefield 1 They Shall Not Pass and Battlefield 1 In the Name of the Tsarfree 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 1owners 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.
Battlefield 1 is available now.
