Battlefield 1 DLC rumours: When will EA DICE release Battlefield 1 DLC?
As is standard in the Battlefield series, there will be a series of four expansion packs for Battlefield 1 released within a year of the game’s initial release. However, before the paid DLC lands, players can look forward to free DLC in the form of Giant’s Shadow. Giant’s Shadow is said to be released in December 2016, and features a brand new multiplayer map based on the Battle of the Selle in autumn 1918.
“The British forces have broken through the Hindenburg line and are now in pursuit towards an important railway center,” reads a line from the description on the Battlefield 1 website. “Fierce infantry and tank engagements ensue on the open ground and river banks alongside the Cateu-Wassigny railway.”
While there is a cloud of mystery surrounding the paid DLC, what we do know is that the first is called They Shall Not Pass. The DLC is said to focus on France and will feature new multiplayer maps and more, with speculation that it may focus on the Battle of Somme and the Battle of Verdun. It’s expected to be released in March 2017, although we’re not sure if this will only apply to those that own the £39.99 season pass which allows two weeks of early access to new online maps.
