Here’s some good news for Battlefield 1 players: DICE is rolling out a free map for everyone very, very soon! Originally only available to Battlefield 1 Premium members and They Shall Not Pass expansion owners, Nivelle Nights will soon be free to everyone “starting early November!”
Here’s a brief backstory on the map, which is based on a real-world location, in case you didn’t know.
Just over 100 years ago, in the foggy and cold night of October 23, 1917, the French Battle of La Malmaison began. It was a carefully planned offensive with limited goals, focused on capturing the strategically important and heavily fortified Chemin des Dames ridge. With advanced artillery tactics and tank support, the French forced the Germans to give up the ridge by November 1.
Additionally, DICE has issued a reminder that Operations Campaign is coming early November. We reported about it before, but just in case you forgot, Operations Campaign strings together multiple Operations and adds unique rewards to the mix for participating. For the first Operation Campaign, titled “Easter Storm,” it will combine Operations from In the Name of the Tsar expansion (Brusilov Offensive and Red Tide), and will be available for BF1 Premium Pass members, or those who own the In the Name of the Tsar expansion.
