The Battlefield 1 Turning Tides release date has been officially announced via press release. Premium Pass owners will be able to access the expansion on December 11. Those without the Premium Pass will get to play two weeks later, as usual. This matches the date we reported on three days ago.
Turning Tides content will be released in two waves, with the first batch of content coming in December, and the second half of content coming in January. Read on for the official details!
Battlefield 1 Turning Tides will be released in two waves – the first coming on December 11 for Battlefield 1 Premium Pass owners. This content drop will let you fight across a duo of epic maps: Cape Helles and Achi Baba. In a new Operation set on these maps, you can take part in the 1915 British amphibious assault of the Gallipoli peninsula. 6 weapons and 2 melee weapons will be added to your arsenal, and you’ll get to rule the waves with the L-Class Destroyer. There’s more coming after your December battles – you’ll be tackling the North Sea in January.
Coming January 2018, the second wave deploys you into the North Sea to tackle two other unique maps: Zeebrugge and Heligoland Blight. You’ll also get to charge into battle with the new Royal Marines and spawn on the C-Class Airship to deliver death from above.
Battlefield 1 Turning Tides is stocked to the brim with other new content: the Conquest Assault game mode, Service Assignments, Specializations, Dog Tags, Service Stars, Medals, Ribbons, and more.
If you haven’t yet played any of Battlefield 1‘s expansions, you may want to take part in the They Shall Not Pass (November 22 – December 4) and In the Name of the Tsar (December 8 – December 10) free trials.
EA has also announced that the Frontlines mode will be coming to Suez on November 27. Also, the “Fall of Empires” Operation Campaign will be made available to all players between November 22 and December 6.
Fall of Empires combines two Operations: Conquer Hell and Iron Walls. These are in turn inspired by two 1918 events: the battle of Vittorio Veneto and the Meuse-Argonne offensive on the Western Front.
