It’s packed with new content.
The new DLC is titled Turning Tides and will come in two installments spread over two months. Why this is the case remains a mystery.
December will give us two new maps Cape Helles and Achi Baba as well as a new operation Gallipoli:”take part in the British amphibious assault on the Gallipoli peninsula in 1915″. Topping of the first part of DLC are two destroyers: L-Class Destroyer and C-Class Airship, and a new elite class The Infiltrator.
Turning Tide also adds six guns and three melee weapons: the M1917 Trench Carbine, Maschinenpistole M1912/P.16, Farquhar-Hill, M1917 MG, Carcano M91 Carbine, Type 38 Arisaka, Naval Cutlass, and the Grappling Hook.
In January Turning Tides will add British Empire’s Royal Marines as a new faction, and Heligoland Bight and Zeebrugge as new maps.
The expansion will also feature a lot of smaller things like mini-challenges, service assignments, specializations, and unlocks.
EA also teases a new game mode – Conquest Assault – which the official post describes as:
“Relentlessly press the offensive—or hold your ground. In a twist on the signature Conquest mode, Conquest Assault sees attackers and defenders fight over key areas, exclusively controlled by the defending team as the match starts.”
Battlefield 1 is available for PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4.
