DICE has detailed the first DLC map coming to Battlefield 1 as a free update this December.
On their website, DICE says of the map:
Prepare to take part in the Battle of the Selle in the cold autumn of 1918. Here, the fighting moves out of the trenches and into open country where a massive crashed airship casts its shadow onto the battlefield. The British forces have broken through the Hindenburg line and are now in pursuit towards an important railway center. Fierce infantry and tank engagements ensue on the open ground and river banks alongside the Cateu-Wassigny railway where an armored train can still turn the tide. Giant’s Shadow will be coming to Battlefield 1 as part of a free update in December.
Personally, it is so great to see an FPS game going back into history again. Games like Call of Duty, for me personally, have gone too far with the futuristic elements. I was never a fan of Halo, and they seem to be becoming the same thing, but now we have this.
That isn’t to say that I think Halo or Call of Duty are bad games, they are fantastic for what they are trying to be, but when I play an FPS, they just aren’t what I’m looking for; but, Battlefield 1 is.
