With the latest Battlefest event now over which brought with it double xp, free battlepacks and most important the latest feature “Premium Friends”. It appears that DICE has one more announcement up their sleeve to end the latest Battlefest in a big way.
As very recently, DICE has revealed that those who are Premium Pass owner can expect to be greeted with a free map come this June. The new map in question is named Nivelle Nights and from the looks of it appears to strike a close resemblance to one of the levels featured in the single-player campaign and fits the theme of the first expansion “They Shall Not Pass”.
Below you can check out the first image of said map and a short description provided by DICE themselves:
“As darkness falls over the muddy battlefields around Malmaison and Soupir, French and German batteries prepare to yet again support their troops on the contested ground.
The moon, the searchlights, and the artillery lights up the night skies, exposing the vast network of trenches. Bite and hold as your foe will fight for every inch of ground. Strategy and teamwork will overcome those who have neither.”
From the short description and image teaser, it looks like the Battlefield 1 playerbase is getting a few of their wishes coming true with the release of this map. As it looks like the Nivelle Nights map will feature both trench warfare and will be set during the night.
Aside from the announcement of the new maps that’s exclusive to Premium Pass owners, those who are a part of the CTE on the PC platform can be the first to experience Nivelle Nights maps. Which as of this writing, is currently available to download and play on the CTE servers.
Battlefield 1 is currently available on the PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One platforms.
