EA

The first chunk of extra content for EA's Battlefield 1 has been revealed and it stars the French army as they battle on the Western Front. 'They Shall Not Pass' will be released to Battlefield 1 Premium Pass holders on March 14 and then to everyone else two weeks later. 

The expansion includes four new maps – Verdun Heights, Fort De Vaux, Soissons and Rupture, as well as new classes and weapons like a Trench Raider Elite Class and Assault Tank Gun.

Verdun was the site of one of the major battles of the First World War and resulted in a massive loss of life for both sides. 

'They Shall Not Pass' is the first of four planned expansion packs for the game.
