Battlefield 1 Apocalypse DLC Releases In February With Five New Maps
Apocalypse includes new maps, weapons, and more.
Battlefield 1 will receive another batch of new content in just a few weeks' time. EA has announced that Apocalypse, the fourth DLC expansion coming to the WW1 shooter, launches in February for those who own the game's Premium Pass.
As with previous expansions, the major addition comes in the form of maps. Apocalypse brings a total of five, including the "bloody, muddy hell of Passchendaele and the Austro-Italian clash of Caporetto portray two of the most infamous battles of World War I." EA also described another this way: "The scenic wheat fields by River Somme transform into a nightmare after devastating artillery barrages."
Two of the other new maps, London Calling and Razor's Edge, have been specifically designed for a new game mode called Air Assault. Further specifics on this weren't shared, but the new maps are only playable in this mode. You can see concept art of the new maps below.
Apocalypse also introduces other new elements although, again, we don't know much about them. EA says it includes new vehicles, weapons, gadgets, ranks, service assignments, specializations, and dog tags.
Before Apocalypse arrives, Premium Pass owners will get the North Sea "campaign" component of the previously released Turning Tide DLC. This launches later in January and includes two new maps (Zeebrugge and Heligoland Bight), the British Empire Royal Marines, and the C-Class Airship. Additionally, all Battlefield 1 owners now have free access to a previously DLC-exclusive map, Prise de Tahure.
