Battlefield 1 "They Shall Not Pass" DLC Introduces The French Army

Battlefield 1’s first paid DLC will be launching sometime in March, and it is all about the French. Aside from four brand-new maps (Verdun Heights, Fort Vaux, Soissons, and Rupture), there will be a game mode called Frontlines that plays like a mix of Conquest and Rush. Two tank vehicles, the Char 2C and St. Chamond, will also be playable, as well as a new Elite Class: the Trench Raider. Finally, you'll be able to get your hands on a novel stationary weapon, the Siege Howitzer.

They Shall Not Pass also adds the French army (whose soldiers wear blue uniforms), as well as a new mode called Frontlines. This is described as a mix of Conquest and Rush. In terms of vehicles, They Shall Not Pass adds the Char 2C tank, which is based on a real tank. It is a new behemoth-class vehicle that DICE says can be used to "turn the tide of the entire battle." Another tank, the St. Chamond, is added with the expansion as well, while a new Elite class called Trench Raider comes to the game. A melee-focused class, the Elite Trench Raider uses a "Raider Club" and has access to an "impressive grenade arsenal." A new stationary field gun, the Siege Howitzer, is also included with They Shall Not Pass. It can be fired by any infantry player.
