Battlefield 1 Gets Down And Dirty In A New Trailer For The They Shall Not Pass DLC

by Nathan Birch

Get ready to get return to the trenches, because the Battlefield 1 expansion They Shall Not Pass is almost here. EA and DICE have released a new trailer to hype They Shall Not Pass, and its some seriously intense stuff, filled with grit, fire, and crazy-looking armored dudes wielding big head-smashing maces. Some earlier Battlefield 1 content tried to show a different side of the Great War, but this is the classic WWI imagery we’re most familiar with.

For those that haven’t been keeping with the latest Battlefield 1 news, They Shall Not Pass puts you in control of hardened French soldiers as they make a stand against the Germans at the Battle of Verdun, one of the bloodiest and most hard-fought conflicts of World War I.

The expansion introduces the French army (keep your jokes to yourself), the Frontlines mode with two maps designed specifically for it, two additional maps for use in other modes, two tanks, and a new elite class (that mace-wielding guy). A nice collection of stuff! Not that anything World War I related can really be called “nice,” but, well, you understand what I’m saying.

Battlefield 1: They Shall Not Pass arrives on PC, Xbox One, and PS4 on March 14.
