    Here is the information released today detailing the upcoming expansion of the French army in March.
    https://www.battlefield.com/games/battlefield-1/they-shall-not-pass

    There was also a teaser clip posted last week.


    The map Fort Vaux seems like it might become the next Operation Locker and the map Soissons unfortunately looks a bit too similar to ones we already got in the base game.

    This short video about the new game mode Frontlines featuring the map Rupture was released a few days ago.



    I am hoping the base maps could get it with the update in the coming month as well, but I seriously doubt it.

    The official trailer for the expansion is finally out and we get a good look at the new map Verdun Heights.



    The names of the rest of the expansions were also released, which are "In the Name of the Tsar", "Turning Tides", and "Apocalypse".

    This forum never did have much activity to begin with. I guess most people use the official "Battlefield" forum instead these days.

    The maps are pretty good; certainly better than Giants Shadow as that map felt kind of rushed, and not well put together. . Some could have been bigger just to compensate for the big ass new tank they added into the maps. The new weapons are great, I only wish they were a little harder to obtain; the medic gun only requires you to get 50 kills with the cei rigotti and 30 revives to unlock it. I will probably have them all unlocked by the end of the weekend. On the topic of non-DLC exclusives added with the update, the new revisions of Battlepacks are very useful, and exciting to open. My first one, i was ecstatic when I got the gold and black skin with the Automatico (best assault gun ever btw), and one more part for the Bartek Bludgeon (i know i should have it by now).

    The new map in CTE, named Nivelle Nights, looks pretty neat. Now players finally have the night map we have been asking for.

    Maybe this will be what everyone was hoping for in Night Operations in Battlefield 4, and Hardline.

    CTE will be getting another new map soon, with this one named Prise de Tahure. Since this particular battle depicted took place after the Nivelle Offensive, a few people have speculated that it will be combined with Nivelle Nights to form a new Operations.

    Even though Prise de Tahure somewhat resembles a night map here in these released screenshots, I think it will be the same deal as Rupture or Soissons where the sky can darken a fair degree.

    From what im seeing in these pictures, the new map looks a lot like Amiens. Could this mean that if the new map and Niville Nights will be paired with Amiens in an operation. Maybe it starts as Amiens, and as the match goes on, it slowly turns to this new map.

    That might be unlikely, considering these new maps both feature a faction that was never a part of Amiens or any of the other maps from the base game. Keep in mind that Giant's Shadow was never included in any Operations either, which might have been due to not wanting to further lengthen Kaiserschlacht as it already contains nine total sectors.
