Battlefield 1 is gearing up to wade into another brutal round of battles. EA has announced that Battlefield 1: Apocalypse, the game's fourth and final expansion, is set for release in February. Aside from the general timeframe, EA hasn't provided a more specific release date. It has, however, let slip a few details on what to expect out of Apocalypse.
In all, Apocalypse will add five new multiplayer maps for players to check out. Two maps, Passchendaele and Caporetto will "portray two of the most infamous battles of World War 1," as players compete for control of the muddy, devastated battlefields. The fields by River Somme will "transform into a nightmare" amid the pounding of artillery barrages. Meanwhile, two new maps called London Calling and Razor's Edge will pit players against one another in aerial dogfights with the new Air Assault game mode.
On top of the new maps, EA says Apocalypse will also serve up new vehicles, weapons, adn gadgets. Other than the new AA Rocket Gun for the Assault class, EA is mum on what to expect, but we should learn more as the content pack nears release. Of course, new ranks, service assignments, specializations, and dog tags will be included as well.
Though Apocalypse won't arrive until February, players can currently check out the Battlefield 1 Turning Tides – Gallipoli Trial, which will be available for base game owners to check out through January 22. The second part of the Turning Tides DLC will also be released for Battlefield 1 Premium Pass owners laterr in January, adding two new maps, the British Empire Royal Marines, and the C-Class Airship.
