BF1 “They Shall Not Pass” Live Stream
Today marks a new day for you battlefielders out there. Today is the day for those of you with a premium to embark on new missions and take on new soldiers with “They Shall Not Pass” DLC two weeks before the initial release. This is a glorious day and here we have a video from yesterday’s live stream. Check it out!
The live demonstration was welcomed by the community and thanks to Lady Arsenic from sharing the details with us. Let’s break it down on what you will be expecting today.
- New Maps: Verdun Heights, Fort De Vaux, Rupture and Soisson
- New Faction: The French Army joins the fight
- New Game Mode: Frontlines, Experience a mix of Conquest and Rush as you fight for chained control points in a tug-of-war frontline. Both teams fight for one flag at a time and when this objective is captured the action moves on to the next. Capture the enemy’s HQ control point and the game turns into a Rush-style section where telegraph posts need to be attacked or defended.
- New Vehicles: Steel Behemoth and Assault Tank Gun
- New Class: Use the melee skills of the new Elite Class: the Trench Raider. With the brutal Raider Club and impressive grenade arsenal, you will be a terrifying sight.
- New Stationary Weapon: Similar to a Field Gun, the Siege Howitzer can be operated by an infantry player. This new stationary weapon is operated through indirect aiming/firing in the same vein as mortars and artillery in vehicles.
- New Operations: Tackle two new epic Operations: The Devil’s Anvil and Beyond the Marne. Take part in massive tank battles and intense close-quarters fighting.
- New Weaponry: Get to know the Ribeyrolles 1918, RSC 1917, Lebel Model 1886, Chauchat, Sjögren Inertial, and the MLE 1903 Extended. Experience physical immersion of the brutal melee combat with new weapons like the Cogwheel Club, the Nail Knife, and the Trench Fleur.
- New Ranks: You thought you were done? Nope, the level cap has been raised with ten new ranks. New medals, dog tags, service stars, and codex entries can also be unlocked in They Shall Not Pass.
This is what an expansion should be like gamers! This is one full package that gives you a whole new experience to an already huge game. As of right now, there is a sale for all editions of Battlefield 1 for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Windows PC. I would take advantage of it if you don’t own Battlefield 1 already, but if you are not a premium holder you can obtain the DLC later on separately, but as said earlier you could play today instead of waiting two weeks. I would say get that head start to stay with the competition.
On another note as a reminder, this weekend the DICE vs Community Ultimate Showdown is happening. Full details of that event will are in the video below, but the DLC will not be involved in the event to keep things fair of course. I hope you enjoyed this post and I hope to see you on the frontlines battlefielders. –Beast Out–
