New guns, maps, Air Assault mode, Afflictions and much more are coming, first to Premium Pass owners.
DICE’s Battlefield 1 will receive its fourth DLC pack Apocalypse in February according to an announcement from EA. Along with including new maps, there are also new vehicles, gadgets and ranks to earn. Keep in mind that Apocalypse will be available for Premium Pass owners to start off while a standalone release will come later.
There are five new maps this time – Passchendaele, Caporetto and River Somme are ground maps while Razor’s Edge and London Calling are dog-fighting maps where players battle in the skies. The latter two maps are specifically meant for the new Air Assault mode.
New weapons include the Meat Cleaver and Chauchat-Ribeyrolles SMG (along with five other guns) while the Assault Class gets the AA Rocket Gun to help take down enemy aircraft. There will be new Assignments to complete and players can even try out Afflictions which will add an extra layer of challenge. For instance, using the “Mortal” affliction will cause you to lose 500 points every time you respawn.
