Can multiplayer maps be sexy? If they’re Battlefield 1 maps they sure as hell can be. I mean, have you seen the snowy concept maps? How about that starry night map? Sexy.
Anyway, yes. DICE decided to revamp the game a little, switching to monthly updates, and they’ve been teasing new maps and content for the past few weeks. The latest tease includes a brief look at the new Prise de Tahure map, another stellar screenshot of the upcoming Nivelle Nights map, and some details about the game’s May update.
“Set in the autumn after the Nivelle Offensive, Prise de Tahure sees French troops desperately holding on to re-captured heights in the Butte-de-Tahure region,” says the press stuff. “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.”
Prise de Tahure will find its way onto the CTE (community test environment) “shortly”.
Nivelle Nights, the “night map” set around Malmaison and Soupir, will be coming to Premium Pass owners of the game sometime in June, and the blurb says you’ll need to “bite and hold as your foe will fight for every inch of ground”. It looks a little something like this.
DICE also revealed some of what will be included in the game’s May update. Other than general improvements, its main aim is to make Operations playlists easier to access. More details about the update will be made available within the coming weeks.
