Today Battlefield 1 developer DICE revealed a new map — the first map to not be part of the launch game. Giant’s Shadow will be released as DLC content in December (and it’ll be free!) Just like in the Sinai Desert map that was present in the beta, you’ll have the ability to use the armored train to turn the fight in your team’s favor. Here’s EA’s official description:
Prepare to take part in the Battle of the Selle in the cold autumn of 1918. Here, the fighting moves out of the trenches and into open country where a massive crashed airship casts its shadow onto the battlefield. The British forces have broken through the Hindenburg line and are now in pursuit towards an important railway center. Fierce infantry and tank engagements ensue on the open ground and river banks alongside the Cateu-Wassigny railway where an armored train can still turn the tide. Giant’s Shadow will be coming to Battlefield 1 as part of a free update in December.
Battlefield 1 launches October 21 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.
