While DICE has already released the last Battlefield 1 expansion named “Apocalypse,” that doesn’t mean the game won’t be supported. In a new post on the official website, DICE announced the future plans for BF1, and that includes a Battlefield 1 free map and mode!
Starting today, all Battlefield 1 players will be able to play the Rupture map form the They Shall Not Pass expansion for free! If that’s not enough, a new game mode called “Shock Operations” will be made available this June to all players. It’ll be a 40-player match, which sees attackers and defenders fighting over sectors like in your usual Operations map, but for this mode, it’ll be for one single map, which means each match will considerably be shorter than Operations.
Shock Operations will be playable on five maps: Giant’s Shadow, Prise de Tahure, Lupkow Pass, Zeebrugge, and River Somme. Anyone can play Shock Operations on these maps even those who don’t own Battlefield 1 Premium.
Finally, DICE has mentioned that monthly updates for Battlefield 1 will continue until June 2018, where players can expect bug fixes, balance changes and even fresh content.
With EA set to announce a new Battlefield game due later this year, this is the beginning of the end for Battlefield 1, but man, what a ride it’s been, right?
