  • First Details on Battlefield 1: They Shall Not Pass Expansion

    DICE and EA released some fresh new details for the They Shall Not Pass expansion coming this March. This expansion includes four new maps, the French army, a new game mode (Frontlines), the Char 2C steel behemoth, the St. Chamond assault tank gun, the Trench Raider elite class, and the Siege Howitzer stationary weapon.
    Verdun HeightsFort Vaux
    The first big engagement inside a fort during World War 1 takes place in the dark underworld of Fort Vaux. Down in the maze of dark galleries and wet stone corridors, French and Germans fight ferociously with grenades, guns, bayonets, and flamethrowers. Watch your corners!

    Take part in one of the biggest tank assaults of World War 1. The French 10th Army moves to take back Soissons using their powerful Saint Chamond tanks. Planes, tanks, and infantry clash in the beautiful French countryside in the early hours of a hot summer day. Only the thunderstorm is louder than the war.

    In dire need to capture key bridges across the Aisne river, the French find themselves back into battlefields where poppies grow over a rusty wreck from previous tank battles. It might seem calm but this maze of steel beasts provides an excellent place for those who plan an ambush. As the sun sets over Fontenoy, the battle wakes up.

    THE FRENCH ARMY JOINS THE FIGHTNew Game Mode: FrontlinesPilot A Steel Behemoth
    Spawn into the Char 2C tank and control an epic new behemoth. Based on the real-world French tank, this super-heavy beast may turn the tide of the entire battle.

    Assault Tank Gun
    The St. Chamond was most heavily armed allied tank of the war. Dominate the battlefield with this impressive French construction.

    Trench Raider Elite Class
    Use the melee skills of the new Elite Class: the Trench Raider. With the brutal Raider Club and impressive grenade arsenal, you will be a terrifying sight.

    New Stationary Weapon
    Similar to a Field Gun, the Siege Howitzer can be operated by an infantry player. This new stationary weapon is operated through indirect aiming/firing in the same vein as mortars and artillery in vehicles.
