Same War, (New) Different Campaigns
EA and DICE revealed the news via its official blog. Battlefield 1 players will enjoy four themed campaigns that are designed to make the game more immersive visually and technically.
These four expansions are:
They Shall Not Pass - You will play as one of the major parties involved in WW1 - the French army. You will find yourself amidst the flaming grounds of Verdun, where you must fight your way until you reach the nightmare-filed battlegrounds of Fort De Vaux. A large tank assault by the Aisne riverbanks will await you, as well.
In the Name Of The Tsar - Ride in Galicia with the legendary Hussar warriors as you make your way to join the infamous Brusilov offensive. You will face deadly winter skirmishes in the snow-covered cliffs of the Lupkow Pass. Live to fight or die fighting — all for Tsar and Mother Russia!
Turning Tides - WW1 introduced the first modern amphibious warfare. So it is only fitting that you fight — or die — in the literal ebbs and tides of war. You will be able to engage in intense naval clashes onboard a destroyer. You will also find yourself doing the impossible in the raids of Zeebrugge and Gallipoli beaches.
Apocalypse - This expansion isn't focused on one specific region; it just made the war deadlier and more brutish. You will fight in the most infamous WW1 battles using only brutal weapons "born out of desperation and deadlock." Conquer, invade contested lands, fight to hell and back. Witness the Apocalypse.
