Way back on May 9, 2017, Gamers Elite sent out an official “schedule” of the content, free and paid, that you can find on Battlefield 1. We have strayed a little bit in terms of dates the DLC’s came out and continue to come out, but not by a lot.
The newest expansion pass for BF1 is Battlefield 1 Apocalypse. In May of last year Gamers Elite reported that it would be coming in December 2017, but its now been reported that the official date is set for February.
If you’ve been playing the Battlefield series for any amount of time you know that expansion packs usually come with a handful of maps, some new weapons, and gadgets, as well as a new mode. I’ll give you the information I have right now, but as time gets closer, I will have even more information, which I will post later on.
In Battlefield 1 Apocalypse you will get 5 new maps. They consist of:
Once the quiet countryside of Belgium, now a nightmarish landscape of blood and mud. Claw your way across the devastated landscape and huddle for cover in dugouts and tattered ruins.
Fight in mountain trenches near the Isonzo River as the Austro-Hungarians face off with the Italian army in an uphill climb.
The scenic wheat fields by the Somme river transform into hell on earth from devastating artillery barrages.
Engage in frantic dogfights among snowy peaks, as British and German aces fight for control on this intense map.
With your fellow knights of the sky, join the aerial clashes high above the British capital in the new Air Assault game mode.
We will also have new melee weapons and guns. Use melee weapons like a brutal meat cleaver or a handy prybar when the action gets close and personal.
Wield firearms like the RSC SMG, and five other unique weapons.
Dominate the opposition with gadgets like the AA Rocket Gun for the Assault Class. Assist airborne teammates and deliver serious damage to enemy aircraft.
Pilot two bombers on the Caporetto map: the Hansa Brandenburg GI and the Airco DH10.
Air Assault Mode
A rush for ace aviators and sharp-shooting gunners. Air Assault takes to the skies, where planes collide in a fury of dogfights that could include a climactic face-off with Airships.
And as per usual, we will also have new assignments and new challenges for Battlefield 1 Apocalypse.
In Battlefield 1 Apocalypse we will also get an additional Specialization Type called Afflictions. EA has summarized Afflictions For pro players keen to show their skill in any situation, Afflictions will hamper your soldier in various ways. Activate “Mortality” to lose 200 score for each respawn, or challenge yourself with “Paranoia” and play with the Gas Mask on constantly.
Lastly, new codex, new medals and ribbons, and new dog tags will be presented in Battlefield 1 Apocalypse. I don’t have a ton of images for you right now, unfortunately, that stuff is sort of all being kept under wraps so to speak. But, as with the other expansions, as soon as I know, come back to Gamers Elite and I’ll have a whole post dedicated to everything you want to see and know about for Battlefield 1 Apocalypse.
The images you DO see on this post are either real images or they are official concept explorations so you can at least get a handle on what the maps do or could look like.
