Did you know the French army during WW1 led the beginning of tank warfare? In Battlefield 1’s first expansion pack, They Shall Not Pass, the French army joins the battle in a brutal defense of their homeland. Players can engage in the largest French tank assault of the Great War and take control of new weapons and vehicles including an all-new behemoth, the Char C2 tank. A brand new mode and two new Operations are also playable across the fiery furnace of Verdun, underworld of Fort Vaux, beautiful French countryside of Soissons and the bridges along the Aisne river.
Battlefield 1 They Shall Not Pass Key Features:
- 4 All New Maps – Verdun Heights, Fort Vaux, Soissons, and Rupture
- The French Army Joins the Fight – Hardened and fearless, the French join the fight. Don the faction’s characteristic blue uniform and defend your homeland.
- New Game Mode FRONTLINES – Experience a mix of Conquest and Rush as you fight for chained control points in a tug-of-war frontline. Both teams fight for one flag at a time and when this objective is captured the action moves on to the next. Capture the enemy’s HQ control point and the game turns into a Rush-style section where telegraph posts need to be attacked or defended.
- Pilot a Steel Behemoth – Spawn into the Char 2C tank and control an epic new behemoth. Based on the real-world French tank, this super-heavy beast may turn the tide of the entire battle
- Assault Tank Gun – The St. Chamond was most heavily armed allied tank of the war. Dominate the battlefield with this impressive French construction.
- Trench Raider Elite Class – Use the melee skills of the new Elite Class: the Trench Raider. With the brutal Raider Club and impressive grenade arsenal, you will be a terrifying sight.
- New Stationary Weapon – Similar to a Field Gun, the Siege Howitzer can be operated by an infantry player. This new stationary weapon is operated through indirect aiming/firing in the same vein as mortars and artillery in vehicles
