'Battlefield 1' (ALL) Rolls Out Prise de Tahure Map, Premium Trials Event

by Rainier on July 20, 2017 @ 5:49 p.m. PDT

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.

Own the night and fight your way through the dark maze of narrow alley ways, buildings and fire in Prise de Tahure!

Prise de Tahure is the second night map for Battlefield 1 and builds upon the theme of the Battlefield 1 They Shall Not Pass expansion pack, focused on the French army and the Western Front. Gameplay-wise, it is one of the smaller and more close-combat focused maps in the game.

Prise de Tahure is set in the hours just before dawn in a small countryside town that serves as the arena in the fight over the Champagne-Ardennes region. We wanted to make a map that shared some aspects with Amiens but on a smaller scale, and in a more organic way. We really tried to capture the feeling of it having grown block-by-block over time that is prominent in older cities (Old Town in Stockholm is a good example of the feeling we wanted to achieve).

If you’re an owner of a Battlefield 1 Premium Pass and/or Battlefield 1 They Shall Not Pass, you have access to Prise de Tahure. You can also take advantage of Premium Friends, which (when active) lets you play the map if you squad up with a Premium Pass owner.

On Prise de Tahure, you play as the French and the German forces fighting over control of the Tahure region in the region of Champagne-Ardennes.

You can play every game mode of Battlefield 1 except for Operations. Some of the DICE developers’ personal favourites are Conquest, Rush, and Frontlines. Fighting over the plaza in frontlines, or attacking the two telegraphs in the final sector is a lot of fun.

All weapons from Battlefield 1 and the They Shall Not Pass expansion pack are available on Prise de Tahure. In the game modes that support them, all vehicles except the behemoths are supported.

There is one tank slot available per team, plenty of armored cars and jeeps and horses. Nothing Is quite as intense as running down a small alley in an enemy-controlled area of the map, and suddenly hear the sound of hooves on cobblestones.

The narrow sprawling alleys and the high buildings allow the relatively small city streets to swallow a lot of players in a small space, so the intensity is kept very high. Escaping a firefight is just rounding a corner, although the same applies for running into one. Prise de Tahure is an organic maze of buildings, rubble, and fire.

This week, we kick off the very first Premium Trials event for Battlefield 1.

Active between July 20 and July 27, this event will let Battlefield 1 owners play all currently available Battlefield 1 Premium Pass maps for free. Kicking off when the new map Prise de Tahure arrives, Premium Trials is a great way for non-Battlefield 1 Premium Pass owners to sample all the great new content we’ve recently released.

This is similar to Premium Friends – but Premium Trials doesn’t require you to squad up with a Battlefield 1 Premium Pass owner.

Premium Trials is the perfect opportunity for those who haven’t yet experienced the Western Front, the French Army, and other maps in the Battlefield 1 They Shall Not Pass expansion pack. With its 6 unique maps, the Frontlines game mode, new Operations, and more, one thing is true: there is a ton of content to play around with as you and your squad strive for victory.

With Premium Trials, you’ll also get to own the night in the first two Battlefield 1 night maps: Nivelle Nights and Prise de Tahure. Building upon They Shall Not Pass, the night time setting of these maps will challenge you even further. Keep your eyes peeled as you fight with your squad among the cold trenches of Nivelle Nights and the alleys of the more urban Prise de Tahure.

Note that only owners of a Battlefield 1 Premium Pass or Battlefield 1 They Shall Not Pass will earn XP from the expansion’s maps. XP is saved for everyone else and will be granted retroactively if a player later decides to get a Battlefield 1 Premium Pass. Also, only owners of a Battlefield 1 Premium Pass or the specific expansion pack can spawn in with weapons and vehicles unique to the expansion. The same goes for tracking progress towards the expansion’s unique medals and codexes.

Enjoy this first Premium Trials event and all the Battlefield 1 content. Before Gamescom, there will be another Premium Trials event after this first one. In September, another Premium Trials event will be held, meaning all players will have the opportunity to play on previously released expansion pack maps.
