The brand new map for Battlefield 1 is named Prise de Tahure, and it will take place in the autumn after the Nivelle Offensive. This was a French and British lead offensive that took place in 1917. The official map description is as follows:
"Prise de Tahure sees French troops desperately holding on to re-captured heights in the Butte-de-Tahure region. The frontline trench networks cut right through several villages facing obliteration from the constant skirmishing between German stormtroopers and French raiders. This is a war of attrition. Adaptability and tactics are the means to wear your adversary down."
The new map will shortly be added to the community test environment - during test play, DICE will make any adjustments they see necessary. After that, the update will be prepared to launch alongside the upcoming The Name Of The Tsar DLC content drop.
It's been revealed that the Name Of The Tsar DLC pack will include the Russian army as a new playable faction. An event will take place on June 10 in which more content for the upcoming DLC pack will be revealed. A full release for the DLC is set for 'this summer.'
