With its North Sea content arriving for Battlefield 1 Premium Pass owners on January 30, Battlefield 1 Turning Tides is soon fully released. Two new maps – Heligoland Bight and Zeebrugge – are part of the drop, so are the British Empire’s Royal Marines, and the C-Class Airship.
There are many reasons to be excited about the release of the North Sea content. Here are our top five.
1 – Experiencing Dreadnought vs. Dreadnought Battles
Feel the power of piloting a massive naval behemoth, but don’t get cocky – especially considering we’ve added Dreadnought vs. Dreadnought combat! Deploying on the Heligoland Bight map, you can also deliver heavy damage to enemy torpedo boats piloting an Attack Plane, outmaneuver your enemy in aerial dog fights, or face off with the all-new C-Class Airship. Or perhaps you’ll lead a bold charge with L-Class Destroyers to sink the enemy’s massive Dreadnought, as it fends off cannon fire from the beaches?
2 – Joining the Frantic Multiplayer Mayhem by a Fortified Mole
The boiled-up intensity of you and the enemy team converging on the Zeebrugge map’s fortified mole is an incredible experience. Prepare for memorable infantry battles under dark skies, followed by fights in the air and at sea, using powerful Destroyers, agile Attack Planes, and more. Get ready for exhilarating variety and hours of all-out amphibious warfare.
3 – Delivering Death from Above In the C-Class Airship
A menace in the skies, equipped with 76mm armor-piercing bullets the C-Class Airship’s cannon can do a lot of damage against infantry and Torpedo Boats, while venturesome pilots can even bring pain to a Dreadnought by dropping HE bomb payloads. If enemy kites are giving you trouble, man the Anti-Aircraft Gun and get the bacon delivered.
4 – Engaging Enemies in Frantic (and Better Balanced) Firefights
Facing off with enemy squads, you’ll find that the Battlefield 1 weapons are better balanced than ever. We’ve tweaked how each weapon in the different classes stack up against each other and made sure the different weapon families are effective under ideal conditions. We’ve also – and here comes some shooter lingo – adjusted the “Time to Kill” amount. Get full details of these tweaks and learn what “Time to Kill” means.
5 – Fighting with the British Empire’s Royal Marines
Last but not least: we know you want to head into battle in Battlefield 1 Turning Tides with style. Don the characteristic blue uniform of the British Empire’s elite naval troops and charge into battle with the new Royal Marines.
There’s more to Battlefield 1 Turning Tides than the North Sea content covered in this article. We’ve prepped articles about the two previous Turning Tides maps – Cape Helles and Achi Baba – taking place on the Gallipoli peninsula. Have a look, then take the plunge and join the Great War at sea.
