Battlefield 1 Expansion ‘They Shall Not Pass’ Receives New Gameplay Footage (VIDEO)
Great news for Battlefield 1 fans! Brand new footage from the game’s first expansion to release, They Shall Not Pass, has been captured from the game’s Community Test Environment Server. This is the testing ground for the game’s upcoming features. If joining in on this sounds like your cup of tea, check here to find out how. Now then, the three videos below show off some of the new content players can expect when the French focused downloadable content releases. The first of which gives us a look at one of the four new maps: Fort De Vaux. Check out the videos below for a look at the latest Battlefield 1 expansion:
The Fort De Vaux appears to be a war torn wasteland initially but then moves on to the fort itself. Now the fort appears to be a network of tunnels and corridors, because everybody loves tight spaces, right? This isn’t the only map coming though. Three others will appear with the Fort, called Verdun Heights, Soissons, and Rupture respectively. Are you a fan of Conquest or Rush? Hopefully so, because an interesting new game type is coming called Frontlines which seems to be a combination of the two.
Now cool new maps are gorgeous and exciting but what about weapons and vehicles? If you enjoy the tank gameplay, you’re in luck. This next video plays up the brand new Behemoth Class: Char 2C. By the look of things, it’s a powerful beast not to be trifled with:
That’s not the only war machine in the expansion either. There’s also St. Chamond, the Assault class tank, described as “the most heavily armed allied tank of the war” on Battlefield One’s expansion page. Also coming is a new stationary weapon, One Siege Howitzer, infantry operated similar to how a player would use a mortar or artillery. For that up close and personal style comes a new Elite soldier. This chap is called the Trench Raider and it seems he has a mean streak, deploying with a melee focused skill set and armed with a Raiders Club, an arsenal of grenades, and a whole lot of rage.
Bringing down the hammer is exhilarating but sometimes situations require a bit of finesse. That’s where the gorgeous Lebel Model 1886 Bolt Action Rifle comes in to play. This upcoming video showcases the French mid- range sniper rifle as well as some more of that monstrous tank in the first video:
Again this isn’t the only weapon players will be able to get their hands on. The game’s site has also posted various other brand spanking new guns and hand to hand weapons for players to get their mitts on such a:
Get to know the Ribeyrolles 1918, RSC 1917, Lebel Model 1886, Chauchat, Sjögren Inertial, and the MLE 1903 Extended. Experience physical immersion of the brutal melee combat with new weapons like the Cogwheel Club, the Nail Knife and the Trench Fleur.
All this new stuff is enough to leave a person itching for some action. Good news is that players won’t have to wait too long as the expansion is set to release sometime in March. Players with the Battlefield 1 Premium Pass will be able to play They Shall Not Pass and the rest of the upcoming expansions two weeks prior to official release. If you’ve yet to pick up the pass, it’s available for $50 at respective places of purchase. Of course if you would rather buy just the French expansion it’ll only run you $15.
