New Battlefield 1 Map Out Now And Everyone Can Try DLC Maps Free

It's a big day for Battlefield 1.

11 Comments

A new map is available for Battlefield 1 right now, though you may have to pay to get it. The new map, Prise de Tahure, is available for people who own the the Premium Pass or the They Shall Not Pass expansion individually. Another way to play the map is by joining the squad of a player who owners the Premium Pass; this is called the Premium Friends service.

Also going on right now (July 20-27) is Battlefield 1's first Premium Trials event. This lets everyone who owns the base version of Battlefield 1 play all of the Premium Pass maps at no extra cost. This includes They Shall Not Pass' six maps, the Frontlines mode, and more. You can also play the just-released Prise de Tahure map.

No Caption Provided

One thing to bear in mind is that you won't earn XP from expansion pass maps unless you own the Premium Pass or They Shall Not Pass.

Prise de Tahure is set in the region of Champagne-Ardennes, and you can play as either the French or German. Every game mode (except Operations), along with all the weapons and vehicle are supported on the map.You can read more about the Prise de Tahur map here and Premium Friends service here. In other news, here's a silly video of DICE LA developers trying to pronounce Prise de Tahur:

Battlefield 1, which came out last October, will join the EA and Origin Access free game Vaults later this year. Launch dates were not announced, but additions to the Vault are typically permanent, so you'll have plenty of time with the games once they're added.

They are literally holding all your earned XP for random when you play this free weekend lie. Disgusting.

"Buy premium and unlock the XP you just apent 30min earning."

EA scumbags.

@Pyrosa: I noticed that yesterday! Absolutely pathetic, I still don't understand the paid DLC for battlefield 1, it has been controversial since BF3 (maybe even before) because it divides the players

While I'm ranting f**k the hellriegel. It seems most people are using it and it ruins the feel of the game given it's set in WW1, the pace should be slower

Yeah, great game, almost bought the premium at the start... But then i realized i end up losing 7 rounds of which 4 enemy has all the points. Then as a reward for my frustration i got one round where we hold all the points ? Doesn't matter that i am in the first 3 on the scoreboard, i am still a loser. So even if they give the DLC for free i don't care.

I played for 2 hours before figuring out WTF they meant by "Premium Active" on the bottom of the main menu... I was like "why do I care?"

...then got into a DLC match on a whim. D'oh! ;)

must admit; as a non premium player, this new map seemed the best of the first DLC bunch.. by far. upon first impressions anyway.

really hated the fort map.. already know i'd never play that.

nice to try some new maps, but i'm still not going premium with this (my first BF without)

@KaotiK_un_basic: I'm in the same trench there.... I'm not buying any more premium passes nor DLC passes anymore. There's just not enough value in most cases these days. Maybe at Xmas when it drops to $20 I'll jump back in.

Case in point: Got all the Hardline DLC for $12 this week. Loved the car control point modes... looking forward to even more creativity here.

@thageorgian: It's having the same backfill algorithm failure that SWBF is having... After 4-5 rounds, empty slots don't backfill anymore. But you can immediately drop and find a full game in any mode.

IOW, it gives the illusion of a lack of players, but it's just a bad algorithm.

A decent addition... Reminds me of Amiens (one of my favorites), but even more chaotic due to the lack of visibility... Managed to get in 3rd overall during the last match...

Not bad after a couple if runs on it...
