With Battlefield™ 1 now being updated monthly, there is plenty of exciting news and upcoming content to talk about. With all the new maps, weapons, and other content coming, it’s inevitable: this will be the Summer of Battlefield.
New Map: Prise de Tahure
We’re glad to announce that a new map called “Prise de Tahure” will be released shortly for testing on the CTE (Community Test Environment). Set in the autumn after the Nivelle Offensive, Prise de Tahure sees French troops desperately holding on to re-captured heights in the Butte-de-Tahure region. The frontline trench networks cut right through several villages facing obliteration from the constant skirmishing between German stormtroopers and French raiders. This is a war of attrition. Adaptability and tactics are the means to wear your adversary down.
Stay tuned for more details and join the CTE to try the content early and give your feedback.
Experience Nivelle Nights in June
Speaking of new maps, the previously announced Nivelle Nights is soon here. Releasing in June for Battlefield 1 Premium Pass owners, this night map is located at the muddy battlefields around Malmaison and Soupir. Bite and hold as your foe will fight for every inch of ground.
We’re currently wrapping up another Premium Friends test run event, where Battlefield 1 Premium Pass owners have been able to bring their friends along to play on new maps. If you tried it out, we hope you enjoyed it. Thanks for the feedback you’ve supplied. You should know that we can’t wait to share our plans for the future of Premium Friends.
