DICE and Electronic Arts announced that the official release of the latest DLC pack of the game Battlefield 1 will take place next week. They also released a teaser video to get fans ready and offer them a glimpse of the new edition, “They Shall Not Pass”.
Two weeks ago, the developers DICE and the publisher Electronic Arts leaked some information on the new Custom Game mode they were working on. Back then, they were teasing fans with a possible February release of the first-person shooter, “Bleed Out”. The majority of the fans enjoyed the idea of this new mode, but the expectations are way higher for the game’s first piece of paid post-launch. They hope that “They Shall Not Pass” will offer better ideas and a better gameplay.
For the satisfaction of the fans, the developers filled their Twitter accounts with teasers for the much awaited game. Until the release that will take place next week, the 15 seconds video teaser is now available for watching. The short video features a soldier wielding a club who faces blazing fires while standing in front of the French flag.
For those who do not know much about Battlefield 1, this DLC pack sets the action during the Battle of Verdun in France. The game introduces roughly 1 million shells fired by the French army only in the first battles, causing massive forest fires. One of the maps will feature a version of the Samogneux village, while the other will display the battles revolving around Fort Vaux.
“They Shall Not Pass” will introduce a third map containing the setting where the artillery shells are torn apart. DICE stated that many details in the game were inspired from the real-life battles of Verdun. It is known that around 40 million shells were fired during the entire battle and this caused the shattering landscape that was features in the game.
However, rumors suggest that a new map featuring underground fortresses is available, but the developers have not made an official announcement yet regarding this. The game comes with new weapons and dog tags available. The official date has not been released yet, but the developers will probably announce this next week, together with some new game teasers.
Battlefield 1: They Shall Not Pass will be available for all gaming platforms, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, and also for PC.
