- Edit, I am reposting this previously written article because its going to be December and the DLC will be available then! If you need a refresh about Turning Tides or don’t know about Turning Tides DLC, this is the article for you!
A lot of people had complaints about the expansion packs on Battlefield 1. But, honestly I think if you owned previous games in the series you would know that they timed everything just right.
Battlefield 1 came out on October 21st 2016 and I think the rest followed in a proper amount of time. Even if it was just a free map – or an expansion pass:
|Unknown||Nov 2016||Update||Fog of War, Rent a Server|
|Giant’s Shadow||Dec 2016||Free (Map)||New map set in the Battle of the Selle|
|Winter Update||Feb 2017||Update||Ribbons, Max Class Rank 50, Elite Codex|
|They Shall Not Pass||Mar 14/28th 2017||Expansion (DLC)||France faction added|
|Spring Update||Apr 2017||Update||Platoons|
|May Update||May 2017 (expected)||Update||Repairable AA, Many Bug Fixes|
|In the Name of the Tsar||Sept 2017||Expansion (DLC)||Russian army, 4 x new maps|
|Incursions mode||Sept 2017||Update||Competitive mode, built with community help|
|Turning Tides||Dec 2017||Expansion (DLC)||Amphibious warfare|
As you can see the next expansion pack will be available on December 2017 and yes, its called Turning Tides.
Turning Tides will feature a new game mode, well, actually its not new to those of us who have played previous battlefields and personally I was wondering and hoping they were going to add this mode; Conquest Assault! Yeaaa! This was first featured in Battlefield 3 and people loved it. Its a spin on Conquest. I would almost compare it to a Conquest Domination type of deal. Smaller maps, you have to cap the “flags” and you get points when doing so. However, unlike in Conquest, the defending team will control ALL areas of the map at the start of each map. I am really hoping they do this right and don’t screw it up because CA is one of my all-time favorite modes.
Battlefield 1 Turning Tides ill also have 6 new guns available. They include;
M1917 Trench Carbine
Carcano M91 Carbine
Type 38 Arisaka
You will also get a few new vehicles and factions:
Infiltrator Elite Class
British Empire: Royal Marines
A new operation will also be added to Battlefield 1 Turning Tides which is set in 1915 on the Gallipoli peninsula.
The 2 new maps in Battlefield 1 Turning Tides is; Achi Baba and Cape Helles.
Achi Baba (map): Throw yourself into the British assault on the Gallipoli peninsula of 1915 in an intense, fast, and infantry-focused setting.
Cape Helles (map): Storm the beaches of the Gallipoli peninsula with the British forces or defend the Ottoman Empire’s fortifications.
So far not much more in terms of images is available but you know as soon as it is Gamers Elite will release that information here so make sure you come back for updates on Battlefield 1 Turning Tides.
