'Battlefield 1' (ALL) Apocalypse Expansion Details, Scheduled For February

by Rainier on Jan. 18, 2018 @ 10:35 a.m. PST

Only in Battlefield 1 will you bring a horse to a tank fight and squad-up with your allies in epic multiplayer battles with up to 64 players.

Through ever-changing environments at the dawn of all-out war, no battle is ever the same.

Battlefield 1 takes you across multiple and varied locations in a bid to fight your way through immersive battles. From tight urban fights in a besieged French city, to big open spaces in the Italian Alps and frantic combats in the deserts of Arabia, discover a world at war through an adventure-filled campaign.

In a true multiplayer sandbox experience, take to the skies and engage in high-octane dogfights through treacherous landscapes, or have a battleship obliterating the coast from the sea, and engage in some of the biggest battles ever seen as empires clash for supremacy.

Set against the backdrop of World War 1, witness the birth of modern warfare, as the Great War saw a furious arms race with new machines and weapons created to get the upper hand during the most technologically divergent war of all time. Feel the intensity and immersion as Battlefield 1 takes advantage of this modern arsenal to deliver the experience fans love, but with a fresh and modern twist.

The war to end all wars, but there’s no end in sight. Enter a living hell and participate in the most brutal battles of the cataclysmic Great War. Battlefield 1 Apocalypse, the fourth expansion, is coming for Battlefield 1 Premium Pass owners in February.

Battlefield 1 Apocalypse adds five multiplayer maps to the mix. The bloody, muddy hell of Passchendaele and the Austro-Italian clash of Caporetto portray two of the most infamous battles of World War 1, where you’ll go over the top to conquer bitterly-contested ground. The scenic wheat fields by River Somme transform into a nightmare after devastating artillery barrages.

  • NEW MAP (Passchendaele): 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.
  • NEW MAP (Caporetto): Fight in mountain trenches near the Isonzo River as the Austro-Hungarians face off with the Italian army in an uphill climb.
  • NEW MAP (River Somme): The scenic wheat fields by the Somme river transform into hell on earth from devastating artillery barrages.

On London Calling and Razor’s Edge – two maps created exclusively for aerial combat – you’ll be able to live out your dogfight fantasies. Master the skies in the new Air Assault game mode and expand the horizon of your Battlefield 1 experiences.

Knights of the Skies: Outmaneuver flying foes in cataclysmic dogfights and take on a new game mode.

  • NEW MAP (Razor’s Edge): Engage in frantic dogfights among snowy peaks, as British and German aces fight for control on this intense map.
  • NEW MAP (London Calling): With your fellow knights of the sky, join the aerial clashes high above the British capital in the new Air Assault game mode.

You’ll also get your hands on new vehicles, weapons, and gadgets with Battlefield 1 Apocalypse. For instance, the Assault Class’s AA Rocket Gun arms infantry soldiers with a way to assist airborne team mates and deliver serious damage to enemy aircrafts.

  • New Melee Weapons: Desperate times call for desperate measures. Use melee weapons like a brutal meat cleaver or a handy prybar when the action gets close and personal.
  • 6 New Guns: Wield firearms like the Chauchat-Ribeyrolles SMG, and five other unique weapons.
  • New Gadgets: Dominate the opposition with gadgets like the AA Rocket Gun for the Assault Class. Assist airborne teammates and deliver serious damage to enemy aircraft
  • New Aircraft: Pilot two bombers on the Caporetto map: the Hansa Brandenburg GI and the Airco DH10.

And with new ranks, Service Assignments, Specializations, and Dog Tags, you’ll have plenty of challenges to tackle.

  • NEW AIR ASSAULT GAME 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.
  • NEW STATIONARY WEAPON: Based on the tactics used during the Battle of Caporetto, smother your enemy in a cloud of poisonous gas with the all-new Livens Projector.
  • NEW ASSIGNMENTS: Put your skills to the test in a set of challenges. Unlock new weapons with Weapon Assignments, and complete Service Assignments to be rewarded with Specializations.
  • NEW SPECIALIZATION TYPE: AFFLICTIONS - For pro players keen to show their skill in any situation, Afflictions will hamper your soldier in various ways. Activate ”Mortal” to lose 500 score for each respawn, or challenge yourself with “Paranoia” and play with the Gas Mask on constantly.
  • NEW UNLOCKS: Give it your all on the battlefield and add new Dog Tags, Service Stars, Codex Entries, Medals, and Ribbons to your collection.
