DICE has shared some new details on the Battlefield 1 map Giant's Shadow, which will be released in December for free to all players.

As detailed on the game's website, Giant's Shadow puts players into the Battle of the Selle in the fall of 1918. Its name comes from the fact that a massive airship crashed in an open field and is casting its shadow over the battlefield.

"The British forces have broken through the Hindenburg line and are now in pursuit towards an important railway center," reads a line from the description. "Fierce infantry and tank engagements ensue on the open ground and river banks alongside the Cateu-Wassigny railway."

This map, like Sinai Desert from the Battlefield 1 beta, will feature the armored train. This train is outfitted with deadly weapons and, if used properly, can turn the tide of battle.

No images for Giant's Shadow have been released, except for the teaser art above.
