These are exciting times for Battlefield™ 1 players. As we march towards a Revolution for Battlefield 1, here’s a hint of what we have in store for you.
Read on and be prepared. Revolution is coming.
Access New Maps with Premium Trials
Premium Trials is a way for players who don’t own a Battlefield 1 Premium Pass to play on maps they normally wouldn’t have access to. Unlike Premium Friends, Premium Trials doesn’t require you to join a squad with a Battlefield 1 Premium Pass owner – you’ll simply have access to Premium maps by logging into the game*.
The first run of Premium Trials will start with this month’s launch of Prise de Tahure, the urban- and trench-based night map for Battlefield 1. If you do not own a Battlefield 1 Premium Pass, you can use Premium Trials during this period to play Prise de Tahure – along with Nivelle Nights and the 4 other maps from Battlefield 1 They Shall Not Pass.
Before Gamescom, there will be another Premium Trials event after this first one. In September, another Premium Trials event will be held, meaning all players will have the opportunity to play on previously released expansion pack maps.
Also note that the current Premium Friends period is still active and will last until Gamescom.
Battlefield 1 In the Name of the Tsar
Six new maps, the Russian Army, new weapons, vehicles, and more. Ready for the most extensive Battlefield expansion pack so far? Battlefield 1 In the Name of the Tsar arrives in September, but you’ll get an early taste in August with the release of the snow-covered map Lupkow Pass.
Battlefield 1 Turning Tides
The third expansion pack for Battlefield 1 is just over the horizon. Releasing in December 2017, Battlefield 1 Turning Tides features the epic clashes of the Zeebrugge Raid, the Gallipoli Offensive, and more.
Apart from the frantic naval battles, you’ll also fight on land and in the air on all-new maps with new weapons. There’s much more intel on Battlefield 1 Turning Tides, but we’ll keep it classified for a bit longer. We do however think you’ll appreciate the naval touch on the expansion’s look and feel. Stay tuned.
Battlefield 1 Added to The Vault of EA Access and Origin Access
We’re glad to announce that Battlefield 1 will be added to The Vault of EA Access and Origin Access.
Unsure what this means? Here’s how it works. EA Access lets Xbox One players play dozens of awesome EA titles, exclusive early trials, and more. Origin Access is the same service, but for our PC players**.
The Vault is a collection of full EA games you can download and play as much as you want, so long as you're a member. Battlefield 1 will soon join the 45+ games already in The Vault.
We hope you all are as excited about the future of Battlefield 1 as we are. Stay tuned for the full reveal of the revolution. Until then, see you on the battlefield.
