EA and DICE have detailed the expansions included in the Battlefield 1 premium pass, which will further expand upon the game’s multiplayer by adding new game modes, 16 new maps, 20 new weapons and new Elite classes.
EA did not reveal a release window for the remaining expansions, but did give us an insight into their contents. In the Name of the Tsar will see the Russian army added to the fold, Turning Tides introduces naval themed battles and maps, while Apocalypse is set to the backdrop of some of the “most infamous battles of WW1.”
Battlefield 1 is currently up to 60% off in the EA publisher sale, and the company also announced a free trial is set to take place this weekend on Xbox One, with Xbox Live Gold members able to download and play the entirety of the game’s single and multiplayer offerings between 3 – 5 March.
Origin users will also be able to try the game for free thanks to a new 10-hour trial, which gives access to all of Battlefield 1’s multiplayer modes on two maps and the first two War Stories from the single player campaign.
Here’s the official blurbs for the three expansions mentioned above:
In the Name of the Tsar
“Enter the biggest front of WW1 with the Russian Army. Ride in Galicia with the legendary Hussars during the Brusilov offensive. Partake in the skirmishes of the Albion assault in a freezing archipelago and fight in the snow-covered ravines of the treacherous Lupkow Pass.”
“Participate in the amphibious warfare of WW1. Embark with the new destroyer into intense tactical naval clashes. Master the coastal class airship in the fierce interplay between land, air and sea. Engage in the daredevil Zeebrugge raid and storm the beaches in the first days of the Gallipoli offensive.”
“Go over the top in the most infamous battles of WW1. Conquer bitterly contested ground with brutal tools and unique weapons born out of desperation and deadlock. Never before have the nightmarish horrors of the Great War been closer as you descend into hell. Prepare to enter the Apocalypse.”
